That’s a good workload for Stevens, who was very involved in the success of the run game. Coordinator Dowell Loggains worked in a nice mix of receivers and running backs, with a good distribution of snaps for the guys at those positions -- outside of the use of Jackie Battle as a receiver split wide, which I now bemoan for a third time in this space.
Morgan got a heavy workload and had five tackles, a sack and two additional quarterback hits. Ayers was minimized in this game as the Titans continue to shuffle linebackers, making the case they don’t have three good ones. A week after he played 43 of a possible 68 snaps, rookie linebacker Zaviar Gooden was inactive to make room for an extra receiver. That receiver, Michael Preston, played seven snaps on offense and five on special teams.
