Only a few days after Travis Henry had authored the best performance of his six-year NFL tenure last Sunday, the Tennessee Titans tailback phoned one evening this week to discuss the game that he feels may have resurrected his football career.

And, surprise, it wasn't last week's upset victory over the Washington Redskins, a splendid outing in which Henry rushed for a career-best 178 yards, equaled his NFL high of 32 carries and scored on a 2-yard touchdown run.

Nope, arguably the most memorable game of Henry's career, a moment he now regards as a galvanizing event, came two weeks earlier, in an Oct. 1 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.
