The Tennessee Titans were fortunate to say the least to escape NRG Stadium with a victory over the Houston Texans in Week 17, which also secured the team’s first division title since 2008.

Sunday’s game saw the return of rookie cornerback Kristian Fulton, who hadn’t suited up in a game since the Week 7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. As a result, we were anxious to see how much of the field he saw.

We were also interested in seeing how many snaps cornerback Adoree’ Jackson received in his third game back, as well as how the Titans divvied up the snaps at outside linebacker with Brooks Reed and Wyatt Ray.

Here’s a look at how things shook out with Fulton, Jackson, Reed, Ray and more from the Titans’ 41-38 victory over the Texans.

Takeaways

-Rodger Saffold, who exited early due to an ankle injury, played just 38 snaps before his day was done. Aaron Brewer, and not Jamil Douglas, came on in relief. -Derrick Henry once again tied his second-highest snap total of the season with 58. The Titans need to get him as much rest as possible after a 34-carry game. -After seeing a career-high 13 snaps in Week 15, Evans have seen his playing time dwindle the past two games, from six snaps in Week 16 to just one in Week 17. Jeremy McNichols was the preferred secondary back with 11 snaps. Evans did see 17 special teams snaps and made a great open-field tackle on one of them. -Geoff Swaim played 46 snaps, tied for the second-most he's played in a game this season, and he was actually on the field more than Jonnu Smith.

-Kristian Fulton saw 16 snaps in his first game since Week 7. -Jack Crawford played a season-low nine snaps, but did total one sack. Larrell Murchison's 15 snaps were the most he had seen since Week 14. -Adoree' Jackson played on all but one snap. It was the second straight game that saw Jackson play a full complement of snaps. -David Long was one of four Titans defenders to play every snap, and he was on the field for seven more than Rashaan Evans. Long has played on 100 percent of snaps in three of the last four games. -After playing less snaps than Brooks Reed and totaling a sack last week, Wyatt Ray played on 18 more snaps than the veteran this time around. However, it was Reed who came away with a sack.
