The Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens put on a surprisingly good show in the rain on Saturday night. While the Ravens were heavy favorites, they allowed the Colts to keep it interesting in a close, 23-16 affair.

Here is how many snaps each Colts player saw on offense, defense and special teams.


OFFENSE

Ross Travis TE 5 8% 0 0% 0 0%
K.J. Brent WR 4 6% 0 0% 1 4%

  • Tight end Darrell Daniels returned after missing the previous four games with a hamstring injury. He basically slid right back into his old role as the third tight end (eight snaps), even though he is the second tight end with Brandon Williams on Injured Reserve. Many people were interested to see how the Colts would use matchup problem-maker Ross Travis (five snaps), but Daniels saw more snaps.
  • For the first time this season, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton played every snap.
  • After running back Frank Gore’s 46-snap/74% share, snap distribution dropped off drastically, showing the Colts had a clear, concise plan to try and hammer Baltimore with their main personnel. The next-highest total was running back Marlon Mack’s 15-snap/24% share. Aside from the blizzard in Buffalo, this was Gore’s most active game of 2017.
  • A season-high eight players saw 100% of the offensive snaps.
  • Overall, a season-low 15 players saw offensive snaps.

  • Inside linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. got his first career start on Saturday in place of the injured Jon Bostic. Walker played decently well, recording 8 tackles (1 for loss) and a blocked punt late in the game.
  • Outside linebacker Tarell Basham saw a new career high in snaps (27). Aside from the game in the blizzard in Buffalo, he had made a new career high in snaps in each of the last three weeks.
  • Safety Clayton Geathers was not active, and per George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin, was likely a healthy scratch. Geathers had increased his snap count each of the previous four games and even started against the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football in Week 15.
  • Overall, 18 players saw defensive snaps.
