The Titans went to East Rutherford New Jersey and got a hard fought W. It wasn’t pretty, but on a day where it was 39 degrees and raining they did what it took to stay right in the thick of the AFC playoff race.

Derrick Henry had another huge game carrying the ball 33 times for 170 yards. If there was ever a game that was made for Henry, it was this one. They gave it to him early and often. Henry has run like a man possessed since the rumor came out that the Titans tried to move him at the trade deadline. They might just ride him into the playoffs.

The defense played well when they were on the field- which wasn’t very much with the Titans dominating time of possession holding the ball for more than 35 minutes in this game. The Titans defense took the ball away twice with a forced fumble on Eli Manning and a Kevin Byard interception.

The Titans play another must win game on Saturday when the Washington Redskins come to town.
