Week 4 of the NFL season is in the books, and an ugly performance was turned in by a banged up Colts team. In the wake of a rough outing, we’re back again to take a look at the snap counts from the game and see what interesting tidbits we can glean from them. Let’s get to it!

Offense

# Player Position Offensive Snaps Percent Defensive Snaps Percent Special Teams Snaps Percent

56 Quenton Nelson G 78 100 5 17
64 Mark Glowinski G 78 100 5 17
72 Braden Smith T 78 100 5 17
74 Anthony Castonzo T 78 100 5 17
7 Jacoby Brissett QB 78 100
78 Ryan Kelly C 78 100

80 Chester Rogers WR 55 71 5 17
14 Zach Pascal WR 53 68 6 20
15 Parris Campbell WR 49 63 3 10
21 Nyheim Hines RB 35 45 4 13
25 Marlon Mack RB 28 36
85 Eric Ebron TE 27 35
20 Jordan Wilkins RB 16 21 17 57
81 Mo-Alie Cox TE 10 13 11 37
16 Ashton Dulin 3 4 13 43

13 T.Y. Hilton WR
2 Brian Hoyer QB
33 Jonathan Williams RB
62 Le'Raven Clark T
63 Josh Andrews C
86 Hale Hentges TE

Notes

  • I expected a heavier use of the tight ends in a contest where the linebackers were not great for the opposition. Perhaps Ebron’s drops limited his action, but he wasn’t the factor I expected.
  • Nyheim Hines saw his snaps go way up with Mack sitting the second half. He was one of a handful of good things about the offense in the second half.
  • Deon Cain was in the game for 57 snaps. That’s 20 more than last week. He was targeted 5 times for no catches. That’s all I will say about that here.
  • Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers both doubled their snaps from prior weeks and made them count. Both looked far better than the youngsters Cain and Campbell.

94 Tyquan Lewis DE
38 Ryan Lewis CB
53 Darius Leonard LB

Notes

  • Rock Ya-Sin took 100% of the defensive snaps at corner. Pierre Desir played but was clearly limited by his hamstring injury. The surprise was that Quincy Wilson saw just 9 defensive snaps with the rookie Ya-Sin seeming to have established himself as the guy.
  • E.J. Speed saw his most defensive snaps by far in this game. He wasn’t a major factor in the game, but notched 5 tackles and certainly couldn’t have been much worse than Walker and Okereke against the run.
  • Khari Willis also took every snap at safety in this game alongside Clayton Geathers. He was perhaps the best part of the Colts defense on Sunday.
  • Jabaal Sheard was back in action, but with just 34 snaps he is clearly being worked back in carefully. Even in limited snaps his impact was noticeable, if not enough to cover over the lackluster effort from the rest of the defense.
  • Despite missing Tyquan Lewis, Margus Hunt saw his fewest snaps this season. He lost out on time to Grover Stewart, who was hardly more of an answer to the Raiders rushing attack.
