  • On Thursday, Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie expressed a commitment to using both running backs Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry, even hinting at the possibility of them seeing the field together.
  • In 2016, the share of snaps tilted heavily in Murray’s favor as he played 862 total snaps compared to Henry’s 270 as a rookie.
  • Murray cashed in a top-10 performance among running backs, ranking ninth out of 62 qualified running backs with a grade of 77.9. Henry ranked 32nd and earned an overall grade of 68.9.
  • The running back pair excelled in pass protection. Murray ranked fifth with a pass block grade of 82.4. He produced a pass blocking efficiency of 97.4 allowing just four total pressures on 115 pass block snaps. Henry ranked 16th with a pass-block grade of 76.3. Henry’s pass-block efficiency of 98.0 ranked third.

    Exotic smashmouth worked well in 2016. Pair it with what should be a much more explosive passing game plus Mariota’s scrambling ability and the Titans offense is gonna be scary.
