Earl Thomas gets the Derrick Henry treatment one week after criticizing Patriots defense

Earl Thomas gets the Derrick Henry treatment one week after criticizing Patriots defense

Earl Thomas and the Baltimore Ravens didn't seem too interested in tackling Derrick Henry in Saturday night's Divisional Round matchup.

The Tennessee Titans running back rumbled for a whopping 195 yards on 30 carries and added a passing touchdown to help propel his team to the AFC Championship in a stunning upset.

Henry's huge performance comes one week after his stellar wild-card game vs. the New England Patriots, in which he gained 182 yards on the ground.

Thomas razzed the Patriots defense for letting Henry run all over them, saying, "Those guys didn’t seem too interested in tackling him. I think our mindset is a little different.”

Well, that statement certainly backfired.

Thomas found out just how difficult it is to tackle the 6-foot-3, 238-pounder. Just watch this 27-yard run by Henry in the second quarter, for instance:

Not so easy. Is it, Earl?

Henry and the Titans will take on either the Houston Texans or the Kansas City Chiefs for a chance to compete in Super Bowl 54. Whichever team it ends up being, they'll have their hands full with the behemoth of a back.

WATCH: Mike Vrabel warms up for pregame vs. Ravens with pushups

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel is up for a monumental task Saturday night when he rolls into Baltimore to try and knock off the No. 1 seeded Ravens.

The former New England Patriots Pro Bowler went through his pregame routine like he normally does—by getting in a workout. Watch as Vrabel gets his burn with some pushups on the sideline:

The No. 6-seeded Titans did the unthinkable last weekend when they upset the Patriots, in Foxborough, in a Wild Card round matchup. It was the first time one of Bill Belichick's former New England players beat him in the postseason as a head coach.

Against the Ravens, the Titans are a 10-point underdog according to Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

NFL odds: Latest spread, moneyline, picks for Divisional Round playoff games

There will be a new Super Bowl winner after the defending champion New England Patriots were eliminated from the NFL playoffs on Wild Card Weekend.

One of the best weekends on the football calendar kicks off Saturday with Divisional Round matchups in both the AFC and NFC. Last week's action will be tough to beat, as multiple games went to overtime and three of the four contests were one-score games to the last second.

It's an interesting weekend for sports bettors, too. Three of the four games have a spread of seven points or larger. Last week saw three of the four road teams win, and two underdogs emerged victorious. These trends are unlikely to continue with the top two seeds in each conference entering the playoff mix, but there's usually one surprise finish in the Divisional Round to cash in on.
