Note to NFL defenses: Beware of Derrick Henry.
The Titans running back stiff-armed Bills cornerback Josh Norman during the second quarter of Tuesday’s game, sending the Pro Bowler flying. Social media naturally had plenty of thoughts on the move, namely Henry’s lady love, Adrianna Rivas.
“That’s. My. Dawg,” she posted to her Instagram story, sharing a screenshot from the Titans’ page.
Rivas, who shares 5-month-old daughter Valentina with Henry, attended Tuesday’s game at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, where the Titans defeated the Bills, 42-16. They improved to 4-0 on the season, which has been marred with COVID-19 controversies.
Following the game, Henry quipped he has to “lay off the arms” after sending Norman airborne.
“I have been doing too many curls,” Henry said, according to SI.com.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill was equally impressed.
“That was unbelievable just to see the way he tossed that guy,” Tannehill said. “Derrick is a special player. We’ve seen the stiff arm from him. I saw it all last year. I’ve seen it before I got here, highlights of it. Obviously, he’s strong, physically a tough runner. That was probably one of the meanest stiff arms I’ve ever seen, no doubt.”
