New, comments

Taking a look at the snap counts for the Colts offense, defense, and special teams from week thirteen against the Redskins.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts defeated the Washington Redskins on Sunday 49-27 to improve to 8-4 on the season.  In doing so the Colts maintained their 2.5 game lead in the AFC South and scored their most points in a single game since 2004.  Let's take a look at the snap counts to see who played and how much each player participated in the big win.

Offense:

Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Gosder Cherilus T 51 100%
Joe Reitz G 51 100%
Anthony Castonzo T 51 100%
Jack Mewhort G 51 100%
Jonotthan Harrison C 51 100%
Andrew Luck QB 51 100%
Reggie Wayne WR 46 90%
Coby Fleener TE 43 84%
T.Y. Hilton WR 43 84%
Donte Moncrief WR 28 55%
Trent Richardson RB 26 51%
Dan Herron RB 24 47%
Jack Doyle TE 22 43%
Hakeem Nicks WR 16 31%
Khaled Holmes C 7 14%

The unit ran just 51 offensive plays but scored 49 points.  I'd say that's pretty good - and it also shows how a lot of their points came on big plays.

Reggie Wayne played the most snaps of any Colts' offensive skill player.

Donte Moncrief!  He saw 28 snaps (55%) while Hakeem Nicks saw just 16 snaps (31%).  That's good to see and something that needs to continue.

At running back, Trent Richardson saw 26 snaps while Boom Herrom saw 24.  Nearly equal, but Boom's snaps need to increase while Richardson's need to decrease.

We have a Khaled Holmes sighting!  He played seven offensive snaps as he was active for the first time in a long while, and he played as an extra blocker.

Defense:

Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Greg Toler CB 80 100%
D'Qwell Jackson LB 80 100%
Jerrell Freeman LB 77 96%
Mike Adams SS 68 85%
Darius Butler CB 59 74%
Ricky Jean Francois DE 58 72%
Bjoern Werner LB 57 71%
Erik Walden LB 55 69%
Sergio Brown FS 47 59%
Cory Redding DE 45 56%
Vontae Davis CB 45 56%
LaRon Landry FS 43 54%
Arthur Jones DT 43 54%
Josh Gordy CB 31 39%
Jonathan Newsome LB 30 38%
Montori Hughes NT 20 25%
Shaun Phillips LB 20 25%
Josh Chapman NT 18 22%
Andrew Jackson LB 3 4%
Colt Anderson SS 1 1%

Sergio Brown still played more snaps, but for the third week in a row LaRon Landry shortened the gap.  Brown was in on 47 snaps while Landry was in on 43.

Shaun Phillips played on 20 of the defensive snaps in his Colts' debut.

Jonathan Newsome had a good game, and the fact that he did so while seeing just 30 snaps is even more impressive.

Vontae Davis played just 56% of the snaps due to a concussion suffered mid-game.
