The Indianapolis Colts wrapped up the AFC South division title with a 17-10 win Sunday over the Houston Texans, but for the second consecutive week the offense struggled. The Colts are guaranteed a home playoff game, but they'll need to play better than they did this week if they want to win it. The team improved to 10-4 on the year with the win. Let's take a look at the snap counts from the game.
T.Y. Hilton once again saw the most snaps of any skill position player.
Trent Richardson played 36 snaps as compared to Boom Herron's 30.
Donte Moncrief continued to see good playing time, as he was in on 53% of the offensive snaps. Hakeem Nicks saw 31% of the snaps.

Vontae Davis missed last week with a concussion but this week played every defensive snap - along with Greg Toler, Mike Adams, and Jerrell Freeman. That's a pretty good group to have on the field for every single snap.
For the first time since returning from his suspension, LaRon Landry played more defensive snaps (30) than Sergio Brown (18).
Zach Kerr, playing in his first game in several weeks, saw 17 snaps.
Shaun Phillips only played 16 snaps, but it felt like more. His impact on those 16 snaps was definitely felt.

How big of an impact was it not having Andy Studebaker in the lineup the past couple of weeks due to injury? He led the Colts in special teams snaps on Sunday, once again proving to be a valuable part of the fourth down army.
One note here that I regret not mentioning in my post-game recap: Pat McAfee was absolutely fantastic on Sunday. He had one of his best games of the season, and that's saying a lot. There's a very legitimate argument to be made that without McAfee's performance the Colts wouldn't have won. He was incredible and deserves a lot of credit.
