The Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans have finally been put out of their misery that was the 2017 season. The Colts were able to capitalize on a Texans team that was just too injured, leading to a 22-13 win.

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

Tyreek Burwell OT 1 2% 0 0% 5 19%

  • In what could have been running back Frank Gore’s final game with the Colts, he was going for 1,000 rushing yards on the season. I had a feeling that the Colts might feed him the ball to get him there, but he only saw a slightly above-average snap share (43, 67%).
  • Tight end Jack Doyle played 100% of the snaps for the third consecutive week.
  • In tight end Brandon Williams’ absence, Darrell Daniels saw his most playing time of the season (34, 53%). Ross Travis still didn’t play much, seeing just two snaps.
  • Some heavy, short-yardage formations got offensive linemen Anthony Fabiano and Tyreek Burwell on the field.
  • Overall, 17 players saw offensive snaps.

  • With starting defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins missing his first game of the year, Grover Stewart (32, 58%) and Hassan Ridgeway (25, 45%) saw their most time on the year.
  • A heavy run game by the Texans meant less opportunity for WILL linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. to see the field (31, 56%). Still, he made his second career start on Sunday.
  • Starting cornerback Kenny Moore left the game with a concussion. Chris Milton (12,22%) and D.J. White (13, 24%) appeared in his absence.
  • Safety Clayton Geathers returned to the lineup and saw his most extensive action of the year, seeing a total of 54 snaps, including 82% of the defensive snaps.
  • Overall, 21 players saw defensive snaps.
