Bijan Robinson on how he’s modeled his game after Derrick Herny

NFL: SEP 17 Packers at Falcons

There might not be a more physically dominant player at their position than Derrick Henry among running backs. The Alabama product makes some of the greatest athletes in the world look like average high school players. Who could forget this infamous stiff arm?

As the Falcons prepare to travel north to Nashville in a Week 8 clash against Henry and the Titans, Bijan Robinson was asked by Fox 5’s Miles Garrett if he’s modeled his game after the Heisman Trophy winner.

Sunday’s contest between the Falcons and Titans will feature some of the best running backs in football. Obviously, Bijan Robinson and Derrick Henry will headline the matchup, but don’t forget about the backups in Cordarrelle Patterson, Tyler Allgeier, and Tyjae Spears. There will be some high-level running back play this week in Tennessee.

Robinson ranks 13th in rushing yards (404), even though he only received one carry last week, while Henry ranks 11th (425). However, Robinson ranks 7th in yards per rush (5.0), which is much more efficient than Henry’s 4.3 yards per carry, ranking 17th.

There will be a steady dose of running the football between these two teams, and it will most likely come down to who makes the fewest mistakes between Desmond Ridder and Will Levis, who is making his NFL debut.
