Derrick Henry (finally) dominated snaps
I’d still say that’s too many for Lewis, but Henry does need his breathers (I guess) and it’s a far cry from the mostly even split we had seen through the first three weeks. Lewis actually out-snapped Henry in Week 3, which is an abomination no matter how you slice it.
Most importantly, when the Titans had the lead late in the game, Henry was the only back getting the ball and the Titans took the correct approach in trying to run clock with their bruiser and No. 1 back. It led to Henry getting 27 hard-fought carries for 100 yards, while Lewis had just 16 yards on four carries.
Now, don’t get your hopes up that this will be the new norm for Tennessee’s running back snap count distribution. Of course it could be, but the Titans were also in a position to run the football a ton with a two-score lead late in the game. A different game script could certainly revive Lewis’ snaps.
Whatever the case may be, this is what the snaps should look like on a weekly basis regardless of the situation, so Titans coaches nailed it in Week 4.
