Colts vs Texans: Week 7 Snap Counts

New, comments
NFL: Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts are approaching the midpoint of the season, and patterns are beginning to emerge in terms of the way snaps are doled out. Injury is still playing a role, and the week 7 game against the Houston Texans is no different, but there is still plenty to be learned from a look at the snap count breakdown, so let’s get to it.

Offense

# Player Position Offensive Snaps Percent Defensive Snaps Percent Special Teams Snaps Percent
# Player Position Offensive Snaps Percent Defensive Snaps Percent Special Teams Snaps Percent
64 Mark Glowinski G 76 100 4 14
72 Braden Smith T 76 100 4 14
74 Anthony Castonzo T 76 100 4 14
56 Quenton Nelson G 76 100 3 10

Notes

  • It continues to be an asset to this Colts team that they’ve been able to have the same offensive line group out there consistently. That group is the picture of consistency, and their health has been critical.
  • I noted this in my Winners and Losers piece, but how was Deon Cain in for 32 snaps and yet he wasn’t targeted even once?
  • Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines continue to see their snaps dwarfed by Marlon Mack. His workload is going to be tough to maintain, so hopefully we see that change.
  • Mo-Alie Cox and Eric Ebron are both in at just about half the snaps Jack Doyle is getting. It is surprising that we haven’t seen this team lean as heavy on the tight end position in 2019 as they did last season.

Notes

  • Khari Willis has played every single defensive snap since week 4 and has looked great. The Colts look like they stole a player in the 4th round.
  • The other Colts rookie who has carried a heavy workload this season is Rock Ya-Sin. He has also been getting every defensive snap most of this year and looks like he belongs. If he sees a jump in 2020, he’ll be a great cornerback.
  • Despite the loss of Kemoko Turay, Ben Banogu saw the field on just 13 snaps. Instead, they opted to keep Houston and Sheard on the ends for the most part.
  • Clayton Geathers shared snaps with George Odum and Rolan Milligan against Houston. He has looked slow and been outplayed when he’s been on the field, so hopefully this trend continues.
  • Bobby Okereke was still in the game for 17 snaps, despite the return of Darius Leonard. True to his word, Eberflus wants him involved on defense.
