. . Derrick Henry. 1. player. 35.

Without question, the best running back on the Buffalo Bills’ schedule this season is Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry, who the team will face Week 2 in the first home game of the season. There is no running back in the NFL at 6’4″ and 247 pounds and that size creates problems for opposing defenses.

In 2019 and 2020, he led the league in rushing attempts, rushing yards, and rushing touchdowns and looked to be well on his way to making it three years in a row before suffering a foot injury that cost him half the season. Even only playing eight games, he nearly broke 1,000 rushing yards by averaging over 117 rushing yards per game.

The Bills have faced Derrick Henry four times in the regular season and he has averaged over 83 rushing yards per game and has six total rushing touchdowns. Last year, the Bills seemed to do a good job against Henry for most of the first half, minus a 76-yard touchdown run.

However, as the game went on he would wear down the defense and finished with his best game ever against Buffalo with 143 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
