Titans' Derrick Henry equals Tony Dorsett for NFL's longest TD run

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry exploded for a 99-yard touchdown run in the second quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

Henry's run tied Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett for the longest run in NFL history.

It was also the first 99-yard touchdown from scrimmage since Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz caught a 99-yard touchdown pass in Week 16 of the 2011 season against the Jets according to ESPN stats and information.

Henry's run is the longest in franchise history.
