Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has been running all over defenses this season, but on Sunday, the two-time pro-bowler showed he can play quarterback as well.

Henry celebrated National Tight Ends Day by connecting with tight end MyCole Pruitt for a 5-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to give the Titans an early 7-0 lead against the Kansas City Chiefs. 

The touchdown pass is the second of Henry’s career. In 2019, he threw one to former Titans wide receiver Corey Davis in the 2019 AFC Divisional Round game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Liverpool defeats Manchester United 5-0

From CNN's Mike Hayes

Liverpool dismantled Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford today.

An absolutely dominant performance by the visitors was highlighted by a hat-trick from Liverpool's Mo Salah. Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also scored the goals for Jurgen Klopp's side, which was a class above United across the pitch.

The hat-trick is just the latest achievement in Salah's stellar season, which has sports scientist Simon Brundish asking if Salah is still under-appreciated, despite being one of the Premier League's best ever players?

It just keeps getting worse and worse for Manchester United.

Liverpool's Mo Salah nets his third goal of the day early in the second half to put the visitors up 5-0.

Moments later, Cristiano Ronaldo found the back of the neck for United but the goal was ruled out after a VAR check.

Despite Sergio Agüero’s 97th minute goal, Real Madrid claimed the three points in a 2-1 victory over Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

In what was the first Clásico without Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo since 2007, neither side let the spectators down after Madrid had gone up 1-0 in the first half thanks to David Alaba’s stunner.

While the early going of the match did not live up to expectations, the second half was a back and forth affair, where both teams had great opportunities to score, but each side missed multiple opportunities to add to the scoreline.

With Barça looking for a late equalizer in added time, Memphis Depay passed to Gerard Pique who fell in the area and asked for a penalty. The referee refused to blow his whistle and Madrid was off to the races.

The counter was led by Marco Asensio, whose shot from the left was stopped by Barça keeper Ter Stegen, but Lucas Vázquez pounced on the ball to seal the three points for Madrid in the 94th minute.

Argentinian Agüero scored a last-second goal to tighten the scoreline, but it was all for nothing as the referee soon blew the full-time whistle.

The victory sends Madrid top of La Liga, while the loss takes Barcelona to 8th in the table.

First half nightmare for Manchester United

Well... it's fair to say things haven't quite gone to plan for Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United trails 4-0 at home to Liverpool at halftime and, in truth, it could have been a couple more.

Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Mo Salah have the scored the goals for Jurgen Klopp's side, which has been a class above United across the pitch.

United produced a stirring comeback during the week against Atalanta, but it feels unlikely that will happen again this afternoon.

Solskjaer will certainly be feeling the heat after this performance.
