The Indianapolis Colts defeated the Baltimore Ravens yesterday in Lucas Oil Stadium in a great defensive performance, winning 20-13. It was a good team win and it involved a lot of different players to make it happen. Let's take a look at the snap counts for the Colts from the game:
It seems like the Colts have fully embraced Dwayne Allen as the number one tight end, both in terms of playing time and role - the only time he hasn't seen more snaps than Coby Fleener was in week one, and yesterday Allen saw more targets in the passing game as well. Hopefully, that continues.
Jonotthan Harrison played every offensive snap in his first career NFL start.
Ahmad Bradshaw saw more snaps than Trent Richardson. In terms of who gets the more snaps each game, Bradshaw now has three games with more snaps than Richardson while T-Rich has two games with more snaps than Bradshaw.
For the first time this year, T.Y. Hilton saw more snaps than Reggie Wayne.

In his first start of the season, Sergio Brown played 97% of the snaps. In case you're wondering, the highest percentage of defensive snaps LaRon Landry has played in a single game this season has been 88% of them, and in only one game did he play more snaps than Brown did Sunday (65 for Landry in week one, 58 for Brown on Sunday).
Cory Redding saw more playing time on Sunday in terms of percentage of defensive snaps than he has in any game this season, and his presence clearly showed. Redding is having a phenomenal season.
|Ricky Jean Francois||DE||3||12%|
Hey, we have an A.Q. Shipley sighting! He played on five special teams snaps.
Sergio Brown's playing time on special teams was drastically decreased - which makes sense considering him starting at safety and playing all but two snaps there, but it's still something to note. On Sunday, he played in 16 less special teams snaps than his previous low of the season (19) and only 12% of the special teams snaps (his previous low in terms of percentage was 61%).
Dewey McDonald, in his first career NFL game, played on 19 special teams snaps, tying for the second most on the team.
