Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (22) runs for a 76-yard touch down against the Bills at Nissan Stadium Monday, Oct. 18, 2021 in Nashville, Tenn. Titans Bills 096

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry — listed at 6’3″, 247 pounds — is known for his beastly runs, but his speed is also incredible, and not just for his size. In fact, Henry reached a top speed that no other ball-carrier in the NFL has in the 2021 season.

In the second quarter of Tennessee’s game against the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football, Henry ran for a 76-yard touchdown.

Henry reached a top speed of 21.80 mph, the fastest speed of his career- and the fastest speed in the entire NFL this season.


Henry is truly a special, highly unique running back- and a nightmare for opposing defenses.
