The Houston Texans star running back Derrick Henry truly owns the Houston Texans, as he’s rushed for 200+ yards and multiple touchdowns in four-straight games. No running back has ever put up numbers like this against a signal team. We’ll keep track of where he stands on his road to yet another big game against the Texans.

He currently has six 200+ rushing yard games in his career, which he is now tied with Adrian Peterson and O.J. Simpson for the all-time lead. Getting his 5th against the Texans would put him as the 200 yard king.
