Derrick Henry trolls Earl Thomas during postgame interview
Derrick Henry had some great words of revenge for Earl Thomas after the Tennessee Titans’ 28-12 upset win over the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs on Saturday night.
Henry rushed for 195 yards and threw for a touchdown in the Titans’ dominant win over the AFC’s top seed. Henry was happy to subtly throw that result in Thomas’ face after the game.
In the week leading up to the game, Thomas slighted the Patriots, saying New England didn’t look interested in tackling Henry in their playoff game last weekend. Thomas suggested things would be different with his Ravens.
Well guess what? Henry torched Thomas’ Ravens too. He even stiffarmed Thomas on a run in the game:
Earl Thomas: “Those guys didn’t seem too interested in tackling [Henry]. I think our mindset is a little different.”

After the game, Henry called out to Thomas while giving a postgame interview on CBS. Henry appeared to say “good s—, Earl.”

Henry was asked about his words to Thomas and gave a tamer version of his comment.
Derrick Henry on words said after that stiff arm of Earl Thomas: "I just said ‘Good to see you, Earl. Good to see you, man.’”

Henry acknowledged Thomas was probably just trying to motivate his players ahead of the game, but it still probably felt great to get that victory and for Henry to puff out his chest. Tennessee is doing a lot of trolling after their big win.
