Tony Dorsett shouts out Derrick Henry on Twitter for tying his record  

There are two people on the planet who have ever scored a 99-yard rushing touchdown in the NFL: Tony Dorsett and now Derrick Henry. Dorsett accomplished the feat against the Minnesota Vikings in 1983. 35 years later, Henry did it against the Jacksonville Jaguars. After Henry’s Tennessee Titans beat the Jags 30-9, Dorsett congratulated his fellow Heisman Trophy winner on the accomplishment. Congrats to my @HeismanTrophy brother @KingHenry_2 on tying the 99 yard record tonight. That stif
