Burkhead rushed 18 times for 40 yards in Sunday's 22-13 win over the Titans.

The Texans chose to narrow their backfield usage, as Phillip Lindsay was limited to only one carry. Between that and Houston's surprisingly positive game script, Burkhead had plenty of opportunity to produce. However, he failed to get much going, as he averaged only 2.2 yards per carry, and his longest rush of the day went for just nine yards. If the team chooses to continue to narrow the backfield usage moving forward, Burkhead could be a bit more effective in Week 12 against the Jets.
