Detroit -- The Detroit Lions continued to mix and match their safeties, including multiple three-safety packages, in Sunday's 26-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The variety turned out to be a winning combination for defensive coordinator Teryl Austin as the group tallied three turnovers and made or assisted on the tackle for five third-down stops.
Rafael Bush, seeing his most snaps since starting in Week 4 for an injured Tavon Wilson, came up with his first career touchdown, intercepting a deflected pass and returning it 39 yards for the score. Miles Killebrew played just 12 snaps, but made five tackles, including four on third down that forced Jacksonville to punt. And Wilson recovered a second-quarter fumble forced by Glover Quin and hauled in the game-sealing interception in the closing seconds.
Here are some additional observations from the snap count report:
• The safeties weren't the only defensive backs being shuffled in and out of the lineup. The Lions also continued to rotate Nevin Lawson, this week getting Johnthan Banks his first playing time since being traded to Detroit. He played 21 snaps and made tackles on back-to-back plays in the third quarter.
• With Theo Riddick banged up with a hand injury, Dwayne Washington received a bigger workload and was heavy utilized when on the field. The rookie running back played 24 snaps and either carried the ball or was targeted in the passing game on 62.5 percent of those plays. It ended up being a rough day for Washington, in part because of poor run blocking. He finished with six yards on 13 carries.
• Laken Tomlinson, who was benched earlier this season, got his first offensive snaps in more than a month. He subbed in for six snaps, briefly replacing both Graham Glasgow and Larry Warford.
• The Lions made the decision to bench Tyrunn Walker heading into this game with Stefan Charles seeing the biggest benefit. A free-agent addition this offseason, he played a season-high 28 snaps against the Jaguars, recording a five-yard tackle for loss and a quarterback hit.
