Titans running back Derrick Henry tied the NFL record Thursday for longest run from scrimmage with a 99-yard rumble against the Jaguars.

The run matched Tony Dorsett's mark set in 1983.

Tennessee was trying to avoid a safety from its 1-yard line when Henry broke free and then laid not one, not two, not three, but four stiff arms on Jaguars defenders on his way to pay dirt.

It was the second touchdown run of the game for Henry, although this one without a doubt had more style and substance. He has seven touchdowns in his last seven games.

Henry's run gave the Titans a 13-2 lead in the second quarter of what can be considered a must-win game for Tennessee as it tries to stay in playoff contention.
