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.
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.

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.

Andrew Jackson, Colt Anderson, Josh McNary, and Dewey McDonald all tied for the most special teams snaps played on Sunday for the Colts.
