On Sunday afternoon, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry put an end to overtime with a long touchdown run to beat the Baltimore Ravens.

The Titans and Ravens matchup went to overtime with a score of 24-24 at the end of regulation. While on the opposing 29-yard line, “King Henry” took over.

The 6’3″, 238-pound running back barreled his way through the heart of the Ravens defense. Henry ran left through the line at first. However, he cut back to the right through multiple defenders before running into the end zone for the game-winning touchdown.

The big win gives the Titans a 7-3 record and are now first in the AFC South. The Ravens fall to 6-4 on the season and are now in third place in the AFC North. In fact, Baltimore now sits behind the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers and the 7-3 Cleveland Browns.

The Titans official Twitter account shared a clip of Henry’s touchdown run. In addition, their caption hinted at the running back’s nickname: “King Henry.”

“PUT THE CROWN ON HIM,” the Titans wrote in their tweet.
