Frank Clark delivers another message after shutting down Derrick Henry
Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Frank Clark backed up his Derrick Henry trash talk in Sunday’s AFC Championship win, and he had a bit more to offer afterward.
Henry has been dominant out of the backfield for the Tennessee Titans in the playoffs, but prior to the game, Clark said Henry was “not hard to hit” and didn’t anticipate any difficulty tackling the star running back. That obviously seemed like playing with fire at the time.
Clark and the Chiefs backed up the talk, holding Henry to 69 yards on 19 carries, with the running back’s 3.6 yards per carry his worst mark since Week 6 of the regular season. After the game, Clark doubled down with his trash talk.

Clark has earned the right to gloat. He talked the talk and backed it up on the way to a Super Bowl appearance. This is a guy who isn’t afraid to bluntly call out anybody if he thinks they’re not up to a challenge, including his own team. This time, they rose to that challenge.
