Derrick Henry is Quietly Leading the Tennessee Titans into the Playoffs

The running back position is in the midst of a resurgence in the NFL, as there are countless talented runners popping up all over the league.

Backs like Ezekiel Elliot, Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara are often mention as the best in the NFL, with others like Saquon Barkley and Nick Chubb getting some acknowledgment as well.

One guy that often gets overlooked is Derrick Henry, as the Tennessee Titans running back has actually been the best rusher in the league over his past 16 games.

Henry is one of the bigger running backs in the NFL, at 6’3″ and nearly 240 pounds. He uses his size to create great power and combines that with speed and athleticism, making him one of the hardest players to get to the ground.

The Titans are on a three-game winning streak, which has put them at 7-5 on the season. During their winning streak, Henry has been an absolute beast, rushing for nearly 500 yards.

Tennessee is currently tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card race, with the 9-3 Buffalo Bills currently sitting in the best position to secure one of the two playoff spots.

The Titans need to finish out the season strong over the last four weeks to make the playoffs, but with the way Henry is playing, they are a team that no one wants to see in the first round.

College Football Playoff is Set with LSU Claiming Top Spot

The College Football Playoff committee has made their latest rankings and they are final.

We now know which four teams will be competing for the National Championship and there really aren’t any surprises after the conference championships yesterday.

Ohio State, LSU and Clemson were all slated in the playoff coming into this weekend, as they were the top-three seeds in that order.

Each team won their respective conference championship games, sealing their place in the College Football Playoff.

Meanwhile Oklahoma’s path to the playoff took a variety of circumstances, as they came into the weekend as the No. 6 seed. First, No. 5 Utah lost the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Then after Oklahoma won the Big 12, a spot opened up for the Sooners when No. 4 Georgia lost to LSU in the SEC Championship. Now after helping them get into the dance, Oklahoma will have to face LSU themselves.

On the other side of the bracket, Ohio State will have to face the Clemson Tigers in a battle of the only two teams in this tournament, that have actually won it before.

Clemson and Ohio State actually have some College Football Playoff history, as Deshaun Watson led the Tigers to a convincing victory over the Buckeyes in the semifinals back in 2016.

Of the four teams that have made the tournament, Clemson is by far the most experienced. They have been in the College Football Playoff in each of the last four years and have won it twice (2016 and 2018).

Ohio State has been in it twice, winning the first ever College Football Playoff back in 2014. Meanwhile Oklahoma has made three appearances in the playoff, but has never advanced past the semifinals.

Lastly, the No. 1 ranked LSU Tigers are the only team of the four that have yet to make an appearance in the College Football Playoff.

Unfortunately for LSU and their inexperience with the playoff, they will be playing the most experienced quarterback of all four teams, Jalen Hurts.

While we all would like to see these teams just square off and play right now, the College Football Playoff won’t begin for another three weeks.

Now after a long season of great College Football, there are only four teams left in contention. With the teams that have been selected, we are in for a really exciting finish.

Ohio State Dominates in the Second Half to Avoid Upset in the Big 10 Championship

Ohio State came into the Big 10 Championship as the clear favorites over Wisconsin, as many had the Buckeyes pegged as the best team in the nation.

Then all of that hype was suddenly cast in doubt, after the Wisconsin Badgers thoroughly dominated the first half, setting the stage for a massive upset.

Ohio State then proved that they have the heart of a champion, as the Buckeyes found a way to completely shift the momentum in the second half.

Wisconsin was held off the scoreboard entirely and Ohio State scored 27 points to not only beat the Badgers, but still somehow beat them by 13 points.

Ohio State’s backfield of Justin Fields and J.K. Dobbins finally started to come alive after halftime, showing the nation that same incredible offense we had been watching all year.

Fields was very poised for a sophomore playing in the biggest game of his career, as he completed 19 of his 31 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns.

Dobbins on the other hand picked up yards all game, finishing with a 172 rushing yards on 33 carries.

While the entire Ohio State team played well to get back into the game, Wisconsin did do them some favors, particularly on special teams.

K.J. Hill was another Ohio State player that made huge contributions to this victory, just like he has throughout his entire career.

In the process of making his seven catches for 83 yards, the senior receiver made some personal history in this game.

Along with setting a school record, Hill caught two touchdown passes, including the one that officially gave Ohio State the lead.

The crazy dichotomy of this game was that everyone spent the entire first half talking about how Ohio State wasn’t as good as we thought. Yet by the end of the game we may have realized they are even better.

You can list off the accomplishments now, as Ohio State wins their third-straight Big 10 Championship and finishes the year a perfect 13-0. But their is still more games to be played.

Ohio State will now definitely be in the College Football Playoff and are now just two victories away from a National Championship.

After watching their latest performance, there is no one that is doubting the Buckeyes in that tournament for all the marbles.

LSU Stays Perfect with Dominant Win Over Georgia in SEC Championship

The LSU Tigers magical season just kept rolling on Saturday afternoon, as they beat the Georgia Bulldogs handily in the SEC Championship Game.

In doing so, LSU completed the 16th conference title in the school’s history and the first since 2011.

The Tigers beat Georgia 37-10, completing what has been a very impressive season thus far. LSU is a perfect 13-0, despite playing their fair share of top-10 ranked teams.

While LSU has plenty of talented players up and down the roster, the presumptive Heisman Trophy-winner has gotten most of the credit for the Tigers success.

Joe Burrow has been a sensation this year, setting SEC records for the most passing yards, touchdowns and the highest completion percentage in a season.

Burrow was naturally the SEC Championship Game MVP, as he threw for 349 passing yards and four touchdowns. He also added 41 rushing yards as he just picked the Bulldogs defense apart.

Burrow was so locked in against Georgia that he even completed a first down pass to himself at one point.

LSU was likely to make it to the College Football Playoff even if they lost this game, but now they are all but assured a spot in the four-team playoff.

The only question is going to be where the Tigers are seeded and who they will be playing, when LSU tries to win their first National Championship since 2007.
