Custom Derrick Henry Jersey Large

How good was Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry’s game on Saturday night in the AFC playoffs?

With 182 rushing yards and 22 receiving yards, the former Alabama All-American accounted for 73.6 percent of the Titans’ yardage in their 20-13 victory over the New England Patriots. Only one player in postseason history has provided a greater portion of his team’s yards from scrimmage (gained rushing and receiving). Eric Dickerson accounted for 76.5 percent of the Los Angeles Rams’ scrimmage yards when he ran for an NFL postseason record 248 yards in a 20-0 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 4, 1986.

Henry’s 204 yards from scrimmage were the most given up by the Patriots to one player in their 41 playoff games under coach Bill Belichick.

In Tennessee’s previous playoff game, New England limited Henry to 28 yards on 12 rushing attempts and 21 yards on three receptions in a 35-14 victory on Jan. 13, 2017. That came after Henry had 156 rushing yards and 35 receiving yards in a 22-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs the previous week.

Saturday night’s performance made Henry the first player in NFL postseason history with more than one 150-yard rushing game on the road, and his 444 yards from scrimmage rank second in the Super Bowl era for a player’s first three playoff games (behind running back Arian Foster’s 501 for the Houston Texans).

And Henry’s big game on Saturday night came against the defense that gave up the fewest points and the fewest yards in the NFL during the 2019 regular season.

“My approach is always the same against any defense,” Henry said after Saturday night’s game. “They’d been doing a great job all year, so I knew I just had to go out there and do my job at the best of my abilities to be efficient, but it was going to take all 11 of us. …

“I think we just wanted to put efficient drives together. Everybody just do their job. Beat the man in front of you, be physical, and I think that’s what we tried to do as we were moving the ball down the field. ”

Henry’s 34 carries set a career high.

“It’s a lot of confidence in his ability, his toughness, his durability,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said. “He cares a lot about this football team. I’m lucky to get to coach him and these players.”

Tennessee threw 16 passes against New England, the fewest for a team in a playoff victory in 10 years.

“That has to be the formula,” Vrabel said about the Titans’ reliance on the run. “When we look at things and we study it … to be able to run the football and to stop the run was huge. We’re appreciative of everything (Henry) does and the offensive line and the tight ends and fullbacks. It takes all 11 to run the football, but certainly Derrick’s a huge part of that.”

Even with Henry’s dominance, though, the game went down to the wire, with a interception returned for a touchdown with nine seconds left adding six points to the final margin.

“That’s the way we like it,” Henry said. “We don’t want nothing easy. We want it gritty. We want it dirty. That’s the mentality we’ve got to have. My main focus is finishing each and every drive.”

The Titans will play the Baltimore Ravens, at 7:15 p.m. CST Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs.

The Ravens are the No. 1 seed in the AFC field and had a first-round bye this weekend. The Titans are the No. 6 seed and got into the postseason by winning their regular-season finale.

“I don’t think nobody expected nothing from us,” Henry said. “Keep that underdog mentality and just stay hungry. Just keep believing in each other because all of us in that building, all of us together, we’re the ones that’ve got to make it happen no matter what anybody writes or what anybody says. We’re the ones that have to go out there and do it each and every day, each practice, each play and just keep believing in each other. Like I told them: Why not us? Why we can’t do it? That’s what we’re going to keep — that same mentality — and keep working.”

Custom Austin Johnson Jersey Large

LEWISTON, Idaho – Lewis-Clark State College’s men’s basketball team started the new year off on the right foot overwhelming Northwest Indian College 147-47 – the second largest scoring margin in school history and the second highest point total.

The tone was set in the first three minutes of the Saturday afternoon game at the Activity Center when the Warriors rolled to an 11-0 lead before NWIC hit its first field goal with 17:02 left in the opening half. From that point on, LC rarely missed in shooting 70.4 percent (57 of 81) from the field – third highest in school history. They also broke the LC mark for 3-point goals with 22.

“We’ll take that shooting every night for sure,” coach Austin Johnson said after the 13th-ranked Warriors improved to 12-1. “Guys were open. Guys were in rhythm.”

Saturday’s game was the first for LC since Dec. 16. For the Warriors, Johnson said, live action was a break from their daily post-holiday routine.

“This is the first time we’ve been able to go five-on-five since we got back from Christmas,” he said. “It was good to be able to go five-on-five, go up and down, have officials, have people in the stands. I know they’re tired of listening to nothing but me.”

Every Warrior scored with Damek Mitchell leading the way with 30 and Jaxon Hughes adding 27. Each had seven 3-point goals – two shy of Bob Sobotta’s nine in the 1988-89 season. Joining them with double digits on the afternoon were Conner Moffatt (19), Khalil Stevenson (16), Trystan Bradley (14), Hodges Bailey (14) and Jake Albright (11).

Stevenson’s 11 rebounds led the Warriors and he was just short of a triple-double with nine assists. Moffatt had 10 rebounds as LC dominated 56-20.

“I was pleased with how we played and the contributions from everyone,” Johnson said. “Credit to our guys, they maintained focus the entire 40 minutes.”

And the didn’t deter from their mantra.

“Regardless of who the opponent is, respect the opponent,” Johnson said, “and play hard.”

Custom Tajae Sharpe Jersey Large

FOXBOROUGH – Former UMass receiver Tajae Sharpe pulled out his old threads for a game in his old home stadium.

Sharpe, now a receiver for the Titans, wore UMass warm-ups Saturday before Tennessee’s Wild Card round playoff game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

Sharpe played all of his home games during his first two seasons at UMass at Gillette Stadium as McGuirk Stadium as being renovated. The Minutemen split games between Amherst and Foxborough his junior and senior seasons. UMass was 2-15 at Gillette in his career.

Sharpe holds UMass records for catches in a game (15 vs. Florida International in 2015), a season (111 in 2015) and a career (277 from 2012-15).

Now 25, Sharpe, who was a fifth-round pick (140 overall) by Tennessee in 2016, had 25 catches for 329 yards and four touchdowns this season.

Custom Wesley Woodyard Jersey Large

NASHVILLE – At the end of Sunday’s Titans-Saints game, a special moment took place between Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard and Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

It also involved Ashante Woodyard, Wesley’s older cousin who was teammates with Brees at Purdue back in 2000.

On Sunday, roughly twenty years later at Nissan Stadium, they were all reunited in a moment that brought back some great memories for all of them.

“I idolized Drew growing up,” Woodyard said. “I kept his autograph throughout my high school years in my sock and underwear drawer. It was the first thing I would see when I’d wake up in the morning. I’d see his signature every time I opened that drawer and I would think: This is my motivation to get to be great, and my motivation to get to the NFL.”

Ashante Woodyard, a defensive back at Purdue, was also a source of motivation. And he’s the reason Woodyard first met Brees on the campus at Purdue.

Woodyard, a rising high school sophomore, went to train with his cousin in West Lafayette, Indiana. He happened to run into Brees in the parking lot on campus one day and he shook his hand and got his autograph.

Woodyard, in his 12th NFL season, had faced Brees, in his 19th NFL season, previously in the NFL before Sunday’s game at Nissan Stadium.

But Sunday was special because Ashante was at the game, and when it ended Brees followed Wesley Woodyard over to the Titans sideline to see his former teammate. Ashante came down to the front row for the reunion.

“It was a cool moment,” Woodyard said. “I’ve played a lot of times against Drew, but that’s not where our friendship began. It began way back in 2000 when I was a Boilermaker fan, and a Drew Brees fan.

“What happened on Sunday, it was a moment that came full circle, to see those guys share a little love. And that is what the game is about. Drew is a guy I idolized, and he’s just as down to earth as any guy that is in the NFL. He’s a very special person and he has a special place in my heart. So to get a chance to compete against him and share the love, that’s special.”

Custom Jayon Brown Jersey Large

It didn’t look good for Tennessee Titans linebacker Jayon Brown after he exited the Wild Card game against the New England Patriots early, but there is reason for optimism with him moving forward.

Brown first exited the game on Saturday night on the opening drive of the game when he seemed to get his arm tangled up with Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson on a completed pass. After spending some time on the ground and then leaving the field, Brown would come back just plays later.

But things got worse in the second quarter after Brown re-injured his shoulder and this time came out of the game for good. Before being sent to the locker room to get checked out and being labeled questionable, he could be seen on the sideline crying.

However, after the game, Brown not only said he was good, he also didn’t have any kind of support on his shoulder, according to ESPN’s Turron Davenport.

Hopefully Brown will be OK for the upcoming game against the Baltimore Ravens next week, as Tennessee will need all hands on deck to deal with quarterback Lamar Jackson and Co.

The former fifth-round pick is one of the team’s best defenders and is one of the elite coverage linebackers in all of football.

Despite missing two games in 2019, Brown was third on the team in tackles and had the third-most passes defensed. His past injury that caused him to miss time this season was to his groin, not his shoulder, by the way.

We’ll have to keep an eye on the injury reports throughout the week and there is still definitely cause for concern with this situation, but for now this is about as positive of news as we can get in this early stage.

Custom Rashaan Evans Jersey Large

Former NFL player and current NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger frequently posts film study on Twitter, and today he chose Rashaan Evans making three consecutive tackles as the Tennessee Titans shut down the New England Patriots on the goal line. Take a look.

Money quote: “I just think Alabama people hate Georgia people.”

The first thing that comes to mind is that Rashaan is a bona fide NFL superstar. He has always had plenty of athleticism, but that innate ability to diagnose and then finish the tackle is going to make him a ton of money. The second thing that comes to mind is just how much Alabama missed having such a veteran LB in the middle this season. With Dylan Moses returning along with Christian Harris and Shane Lee having a year under their belts, perhaps we will get to see this type of play in 2020.

In any case, way to show out Rashaan.

Roll Tide.

Custom Kamalei Correa Jersey Large

NASHVILLE – Kamalei Correa was preparing for his third season with the Baltimore Ravens this time last year, until his career path – at the least his zip code – changed just a month later.

The Titans traded for the outside linebacker in August of 2018, giving Correa a new challenge in a new city, on a new team.

“For me, it was about trusting God’s plan and just knowing “He’s got me,” Correa said. “So I trusted Him and let things fall into place, while working hard and doing what I could do. At the end of the day God always has a plan for us, and this was his plan for me.”

A year later, Correa is preparing for his second season with the Titans, and hoping to make an even bigger impact in 2019.

He’s more comfortable, and ready to go.

“I love it here,” he said. “There’s great people, and it’s a great place, with great coaches. I have great teammates. I love my teammates. Man, I love it here. There’s no other way to put it. … So I want to go out there and help my team by being the best I can be.”

A second-round pick (42nd overall) of the Ravens in the 2016 NFL Draft, Correa played in 13 games last season for the Titans, with four starts. He tallied 27 tackles with 3.5 sacks and five quarterback pressures.

In three NFL seasons, Correa has 38 career tackles.

Correa said he’s focused on getting better in every aspect of his life during his first full offseason in Tennessee. His past with Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees from his days in Baltimore has him even more comfortable.

“It is year 4, so you have time to hone in and focus on the details from last season, the mistakes that I’ve made, the team has made, the defense has made,” he said. “I’m just trying to be better at everything – an all-around person, better teammate, a better father off the field and just a better ball player. I am trying to work on my overall well-being and not just on the field because I think that is a big part it.

“I love my family, I love football, I love this team. So I just try to come out here and work hard every single day and keep fine-tuning the little things to get better.”

The Titans added veteran edge rusher Cameron Wake this offseason, and he’s now the leader of a group that includes Harold Landry, Sharif Finch and Correa, among others. The team also drafted D’Andre Walker, and added Derick Roberson as an undrafted free agent. Former Vol LaTroy Lewis is back, and he’s had a solid offseason.

Things will get turned up a few notches when the pads come on in training camp at the end of the month.

“I feel like we are all pro football players, and we all work hard,” Correa said. “We all have a great attitude and come to work every single day and the people upstairs decide (who joins the team) and now it’s up to us to take full advantage of our reps in practices and in the preseason games we have and to show them: ‘Hey, I am here to play ball.’

“It’s just a good opportunity for us and the young guys to do our jobs, keep getting better and have fun.”

Custom Rodger Saffold III Jersey Large

Much of the struggles for the 2019 Los Angeles Rams came down to the inconsistent and often unsatisfactory play from their offensive line.

After a phenomenal showing from the 2018 line, the Rams let OL Rodger Saffold III leave in free agency and pushed C John Sullivan into retirement. The early returns from OL Joseph Noteboom and C Brian Allen left many fans wondering if the Rams’ transition to a new line had been premature. After a season of injuries and personnel adjustments, things look even less settled up front heading toward 2020 with LT Andrew Whitworth and OL Austin Blythe both set to become free agents with allusions toward Whitworth’s retirement stemming as far back as last season.

But per NFL Media’s Mike Silver, it sounds like Big Whit yet again might give it another go:

It’s worth taking this with a grain of salt. This was a post-game comment after the heat of battle and not a measured response after weeks of considering his future.

His potential return would be a huge shift in offseason plans.

Big Whit just turned 38-years old two weeks ago. He’s earning just more than $16m this year after two years under $10m. The Rams are currently set to have about $20m available for free agency. Not sure what Big Whit’s current market value would be, but it would eat up a significant chunk of their available cap which would perhaps call into question the capability to re-sign any of the other five impeding free agents: Blythe, DL Michael Brockers, EDGE Dante Fowler Jr., LB Cory Littleton and/or K Greg Zuerlein.

Tough decisions lie ahead, but if Whit wants to saddle up again, things will be even more convoluted.

Custom Ryan Tannehill Jersey Large

The New England Patriots came into Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins as overwhelming favorites to win, secure a 1st-round bye in the 2020 playoffs and potentially return to their fourth consecutive Super Bowl. And then Ryan Fitzpatrick and company came to town and shocked New England. With a 27-24 Dolphins victory in hand, Miami returned to start the offseason and the Patriots looked to prep for something they hadn’t had in a decade.

A Wild Card game. And boy, did the Patriots look to be in trouble, based on their play against Miami.

Turns out they were. Former Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill notched his first career postseason win last night while steering the Titans to a 20-13 victory over the New England Patriots, knocking the Patriots from the AFC playoffs and starting their season with the organization facing more uncertainty than any time in recent memory.

Here’s to you, Ryan Tannehill. The playoff Tannehill looked a lot more like the one we were accustomed to seeing in South Florida, not the explosive passer that’s flashed this season in Tennessee. But none the less, Miami never gave Tannehill a running back like Derrick Henry to lean on — and Henry churned through the Patriots’ defense like a hot knife through butter. Yet with the Titans facing the opportunity to milk the clock inside the final 5 minutes, it was Tannehill who came up big, throwing for a first down to further position the Titans to ice the game while leading 14-13.

Tannehill and company will now head to Baltimore to face the Ravens. And the Patriots? They’ll need to figure out what the heck is going to happen with Tom Brady — whose contract expires this offseason. Father Time catches us all, Brady may be an outlier but he’s not an exception. Will Bill Belichick decide this is the time for a divorce between he and the quarterback that have dominated the AFC landscape for 20 years? Or will the Patriots run it back for one more ride in 2020?

Custom David Long Jersey Large

The Los Angeles Rams still don’t have their starting right tackle as Rob Havenstein will miss another game. He was ruled out for Sunday night’s matchup with the Seahawks, which isn’t much of a surprise considering he came into the game as doubtful.

In addition to Havenstein being inactive, so too is tight end Gerald Everett. He was ruled out on Friday as this will be the second straight week he’ll be sidelined. He’s currently dealing with a knee injury, which occurred when he hyperextended his leg against the Ravens in Week 12.

Here are the Rams’ other five inactives for Week 14 against the Seahawks, including David Long, who’s a healthy scratch.

It’s worth noting that both Greg Gaines and Tanzel Smart are active for this one, which suggests the Rams will be gearing up to stop the Seahawks’ third-ranked rushing attack. That’s likely why Long is inactive instead.

The Seahawks are without linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who came into the night listed as doubtful. Seattle runs its base 4-3 defense the majority of the time, but that will be a challenge with Kendricks out.

Jadeveon Clowney is active, but Ziggy Ansah will not play in this one after being listed as questionable.
