Colts AFC Championship Game Snap Counts vs. Patriots

New, comments

Taking a look at the snap counts for the Colts offense, defense, and special teams from the AFC Championship game against the Patriots.

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts were completely dominated on Sunday night by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship, losing 45-7.  While many of you probably wish we could just move on from the game and forget about it, we still need to take a look at the snap counts for one last time this season.

First, the seven inactive players for the Colts included a few notable names: wide receiver Griff Whalen, running back Trent Richardson, cornerback Sheldon Price, tackle Xavier Nixon, center Jonotthan Harrison, outside linebacker Bjoern Werner, and nose tackle Zach Kerr.  Furthermore, there was another player who was active but who didn't play: backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.  Other than those eight guys, everyone played for the Colts, so let's take a look at the snap counts from the game.

Offense:

Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Lance Louis G 56 100%
Jack Mewhort G 56 100%
Anthony Castonzo T 56 100%
Andrew Luck QB 56 100%
Khaled Holmes C 56 100%
Joe Reitz G 56 100%
T.Y. Hilton WR 49 88%
Coby Fleener TE 44 79%
Donte Moncrief WR 42 75%
Dwayne Allen TE 40 71%
Dan Herron RB 36 64%
Reggie Wayne WR 21 38%
Zurlon Tipton RB 19 34%
Hakeem Nicks WR 17 30%
Jack Doyle TE 12 21%

T.Y. Hilton played 49 snaps and caught just one pass.  That's not a recipe for success for the Colts whatsoever.

Donte Moncrief played the second most snaps of any Colts' receiver, which I think was a good thing, but he didn't catch a pass (which isn't a good thing).

Reggie Wayne played just 21 snaps (38%), and he didn't catch a pass either.

Defense:

Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Greg Toler CB 78 100%
Mike Adams SS 78 100%
D'Qwell Jackson LB 77 99%
Erik Walden LB 72 92%
Vontae Davis CB 71 91%
Jerrell Freeman LB 70 90%
LaRon Landry FS 69 88%
Cory Redding DE 66 85%
Arthur Jones DT 63 81%
Jonathan Newsome LB 58 74%
Darius Butler CB 38 49%
Ricky Jean Francois DE 34 44%
Josh Chapman NT 34 44%
Montori Hughes NT 15 19%
Shaun Phillips LB 15 19%
Andy Studebaker LB 11 14%
Andrew Jackson LB 5 6%
Henoc Muamba LB 2 3%
Sergio Brown FS 2 3%

Vontae Davis was really the only Colt to play well on Sunday, so there's that.  He played 71 of the 78 defensive snaps.

Sergio Brown, a former starter this season, played just two snaps.

Special Teams:

Player Pos. Snaps Percent
Henoc Muamba LB 26 93%
Colt Anderson SS 26 93%
