Henry, who ran for a franchise-record 238 yards and four touchdowns in the Titans’ 30-9 victory against the Jaguars, tied the NFL mark for the longest touchdown run from scrimmage, set Jan. 3, 1983, by Dallas Cowboys star Tony Dorsett against the Minnesota Vikings. 

After the Titans stopped Jacksonville on a goal-line stand in the second quarter, Henry took a handoff at the 1-yard line and broke through the middle. He veered to his left, stiff-arming a pair of Jaguars defenders as he rumbled down the sidelines. 

Henry’s 238 yards rushing broke the franchise record set on Nov. 1, 2009, when Chris Johnson gained 228 yards against Jacksonville. His 99-yard run broke the team mark set by Johnson, who broke off a 94-yard run against the New York Jets on Dec. 17, 2012, The Tennessean reported.

Both Johnson and Dorsett paid tribute to Henry’s effort on Twitter:
