Derrick Henry reached a top speed of 21.74 MPH on his 54-yard TD run
According to Next Gen Stats, that is the fastest a player has been clocked by a ball carrier running for a TD so far this season. And the dude is 250+ lbs to boot.

Still hasn't rushed for over 750 yds as a pro.

That was an amazing run, but he looks so slow to me.

You got to have strong ankles and hamstrings to run that fast

better career YPC than LF1.9, more TDs than LF1.9, fewer career carries than LF1.9 but more career yards.

Just acknowledge that while LF has the richer contract, Henry has been the better pro, and then move on.

Got us Bama fans fricked up. We can't tell what's fast or slow since Henry.

He splits carries. He has a significantly higher YPC than Fournette for his career, even before tonight.

It's the height and long legs. They can genuinely screw up our perception of how fast a person is moving. If you watch the lines, you can see how fast he's moving, but if you just watch him, it looks like he's moving slower than he actually is. It's a known phenomenon.

Edit: Meant to say I had the same reaction the first time I saw it. I had to wait for the replay to pay closer attention to the lines and the distance to really get the right perspective on how fast he was moving.
