Tennessee Titans Snap Counts & Takeaways from Week 8 Win Over Atlanta Falcons

The Tennessee Titans got their season back on track against the Atlanta Falcons and they did it while having some interesting players making contributions. We see that in the snaps counts on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.

The Tennessee Titans' win over the Atlanta Falcons featured some new players and some lineup mixtures we have not seen before. That made for some interesting takeaways from the Week 8 snap counts.


Tennessee Titans Week 8 Offensive Snap Counts

Tennessee Titans Week 8 Offensive Snap Counts

Obviously, the big story here is the snap counts for Will Levis. Levis played 66 snaps and was excellent. There was also some controversy about Malik Willis who played two snaps, but was booed relentlessly when he went on the field after being involved in a fumble on his first snap. Let's not rotate the quarterbacks anymore, Mike.

Also worth pointing out that Andre Dillard ended up playing 37 snaps after the injury to Chris Hubbard forced the benched Dillard back into the game. Nicholas Petit-Frere bounced back to the right side with Dillard going back to left.

With tight end Josh Whyle out, we also saw a major rise in the snap counts of the other two top tight ends. Trevon Wesco and Chig Okonkwo both played over forty snaps as they tried to fill in the gap of Whyle's absence.


Tennessee Titans Week 8 Defensive Snap Counts

With the trade of Kevin Byard early in Week 8, the question of who would fill his role at safety was asked. The answer is clearly Elijah Molden. Molden played all 68 snaps along side Amani Hooker. We saw Terrell Edmunds, acquired in the Byard trade, play 17 snaps as well in a dime safety role on passing downs.

Eric Garror also got his first extended action in an NFL game. Garror played 62 snaps at slot corner in place of Roger McCreary. Garror had his struggles on defense, but also added contributions on special teams as well as a punt returner.

Edge rusher Trevis Gipson also got his highest amount of snaps all year with 17 and played well. He was consistently setting the edge in run defense and got some pressure on the Falcons' quarterbacks.
