Titans vs. Saints Snap Count Notes

New, comments
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Mularkey was the tight ends coach this time last week.  Yesterday the tight ends accounted for 3 of the Titans 4 touchdowns.  Craig Stevens also saw a huge uptick in snaps (40 of 71).  Stevens is a decent receiver but an excellent blocker.  He wasn't being used correctly (i.e. being on the field to block) under Ken Whisenhunt.  Mularkey righted that wrong yesterday.  Nice job, Mike!

Harry Douglas led the wide receivers in snaps yesterday.  He was on the field for 59 of 71 snaps.  Which receiver played the second most snaps you ask?  That's right...DORIAL GREEN-BECKHAM.  He had 5 catches for 77 yards on 10 targets.  I love seeing him more involved.

Antonio Andrews led the running backs in snaps with 45 to Dexter McCluster's 29.  Bishop Sankey was active but didn't see the field.

Here are the totals for the offense:

On the defensive side of the ball, Avery Williamson played all 76 snaps.  It was another huge day of work for Brian Orakpo who logged 72 snaps.  Derrick Morgan's number was down at 59 because he left the game for a while because of an injury.

The rest of the defensive snaps:
