The Tennessee Titans had a few players we could give the Week 2 Player of the Game honor to after their thrilling 33-30 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks, but we’re settling on running back Derrick Henry.

After having a quiet first half that saw him gain just 34 yards, Henry came to life in the second half, exploding for 148 yards en route to finishing with 182 yards and three scores. He also added a career-high six catches for 55 yards.

No play was bigger than Henry’s 60-yard touchdown, which came with the Titans trailing 30-16 in the fourth quarter. The score breathed life back into Tennessee and was a big reason why they were able to come back.

The King has done it again, but this time he contributed through the air as well. Tennessee needs to continue incorporating him in the passing game.

Honorable mention

It would be criminal if we didn’t include kicker Randy Bullock, who made the game-winning field goal in overtime.

But Bullock did more than just that. He made four of his five field goal tries, allowing the Titans to come away with at least some points after falling short on multiple trips to the red zone. He was a perfect 3-for-3 on PATs, also.

It looks like the Titans will have the same kicker for two weeks in a row — imagine that.
