Titans @ Ravens!! Can Lamar Jackson get more rushing yards than Derrick Henry?
Lamar Jackson has 1,206 rushing yards and 7 rushing touchdowns. Derrick Henry led the NFL in rushing yards with 1,540 rushing yards. Jackson had 5 games with over 100 rushing yards that included an impressive 152 yards against the Bengals. Henry is coming off a 182 rushing yard performance in the wild card win vs Tom Brady’s Patriots. Henry passed the 100 yard mark 6 times in the regular season. The run game is the focal point for both of this teams, so I ask again??
Can Lamar Jackson get more rushing yards than Derrick Henry?
I think Jackson can and I think that he will. But most importantly the Ravens need Jackson to run the ball.
Ryan Tannerhill found his groove with the Titans and hasn’t looked back after taking on the starting role. He is making the right reads and taking care of the football when he is being asked to throw. Last week vs the Patriots he only attempted 15 passes, completing 8, ending with a total of 72 yards. Ultimately, the plan worked against the Patriots.
Jackson’s running ability is what he is what stands out, but he still passed for 3,127 yards and threw 36 touchdowns. Most importantly Jackson only had 6 interceptions and only got sacked 23 times. Jackson is an underrated passer, more times than others he also seems to save his passes for clutch situations. Jackson is not afraid of the moment and has a whole team ready to back him up.
