After a busy Tuesday, figured it's good idea to get back into our routine and cleaning up our final notes and thoughts on Cincinnati's 27-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts, with our weekly snap count. We'll have the defensive snap count posted an hour after this is published. Unless otherwise noted like against the Cleveland Browns, quarterback Andy Dalton isn't featured in these largely because he's the quarterback and taking every snap for the offense. Wildcat formation or substitutions would invite him into the conversation but for now, there's no reason to list him.
One telling aspect of the snap count from Indianapolis is that when Bernard Scott entered the game on Sunday, there was a 78.5% chance of him running the football. This hasn't been a noticeable trend, however of 50 offensive snaps that Scott has participated in this year, 30 were handoffs to the running back (for 85 yards rushing and a 2.8 yard/rush average).
Also of note: Dennis Roland took part in six snaps as a sixth offensive lineman. Of the team's 35 rushing attempts, Chris Pressley was involved in 20 suggesting two-back formations. Otherwise that means Cincinnati ran out of the single-back formation 15 times against the Colts. A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham took part in all but one offensive snap on Sunday and there were 36 instances of a double-tight formation with Donald Lee entering the game.
