The Facts: Henry spearheaded a late-season run at the playoffs for his team to earn the AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors for December.
Diehards Line: The third-year back was tabbed to pick up the slack of an offense that was hobbled by an ailing Marcus Mariota, and prompted a surge in Week 13 with a historic game on "Thursday Night Football." A remarkable 99-yard touchdown run highlighted a night where Henry ran for 238 yards and four touchdowns on just 17 carries (14 YPC), which made him the first player in the Super Bowl era to eclipse 200 yards on fewer than 20 rushing attempts. Henry went on to carry the load for the Titans during their December run, amounting 625 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in the month, which was more than half of his 2018 season totals (1059 yds; 12 TDs). Although the Titans fell short of the playoffs after a Week 17 home loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Henry reminded Tennessee what it had exactly once the team committed to him after a slow start, and befittingly enough, his late-season success was reportedly prompted by some advice from an all-time great Titan running back in Eddie George.
