In the latest update from Ari Meirov of Pro Football Focus, two Tennessee Titans players are getting some well deserved national recognition by leading their positions in Pro Bowl voting entering Week 13.

Titans running back Derrick Henry is unsurprisingly the leading vote getter among AFC running backs, while rookie punter Ryan Stonehouse is receiving the nod in the special teams category.

Henry is inarguably the best back in the NFL right now. Nobody else has been able to stay as consistently dominant as Henry, and as a result, the 28-year-old veteran is no stranger to being praised by fans. In his last two full seasons (2019, 2020) Henry led the league in rushing, and was elected to the Pro Bowl, earning first-team All-Pro honors in 2020.

Last season, Henry was on pace to lead the league in rushing yards once again before suffering a foot injury eight games in that made him miss the remainder of the regular season. Henry was pacing for 1,991 yards before the injury.

After two subpar performances in a row, Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has surpassed Henry as the league leader in 2022. But make no mistake about it, just 111 behind, Henry has his eyes on another rushing title to go along with his inevitable Pro Bowl nod.

As for Stonehouse, it really is quite amazing how the Titans moved on from one of the best punters in the NFL (Brett Kern), just to wind up with Stonehouse, who is one of the best punters in the NFL at the young age of 23.

Stonehouse currently leads the league in punting average, with 53.1 yards per punt in 2022. He is also top five in punts downed inside the 20-yard line with 23.

The rookie has proved that he has the touch to compliment his big leg, and earned himself the honor of Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 10 and AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for October. Now it appears he may be on track for a Pro Bowl appearance.

So, there you have it. Henry and Stonehouse, and perhaps more to join them. For now, it’s two Tennessee Titans players, both very deserving and important to the team’s success in their own ways, that are on track to be elected to the Pro Bowl.

That said, let’s hope they’re preparing for the Super Bowl that week and not making the trip out to Las Vegas.
