Why not a Derrick Henry carry on the 2-point conversion?

LONDON – A few final thoughts on a loss the Titans really have to be sick over at Wembley Stadium.

The run game: It was a good day for the running game, which finally showed signs of life. The 33 carries were the second-most outside of the Jacksonville win, the 164 yards were the most this year and the 5.0-yard average was the highest.

HenryPortraitDion Lewis did the most with 13 carries for 91 yards (and six catches on six targets for 64 more). He was electric and the Titans best player in London, which is why it would have made sense to win or lose with him on the 2-point conversion, certain once it was moved, by penalty, to the 1-yard line.

Derrick Henry had some good runs and two good catches. Because of his size, people overrate him as a short-yardage threat. Many figure a 6-foot-3, 247-pound back should simply be able to get a yard.
