Offensive And Defensive Snap Breakdown Through Six Games This Season

With the bye week this week, it seemed like as good an opportunity to list the snap count for both the offense and defense through the first six weeks into the season. Here are some interesting notes:

+ Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap are true pass rushers. Over 65% of Geno Atkins' defensive snaps are during passing downs with him rushing the quarterback. The same thing applies to Carlos Dunlap, with 66.3% of his defensive snaps during passing situations. Defensive tackle Pat Sims and Domata Peko are clearly your run defenders, with 57.1% of Sims' defensive snaps during rushing downs, followed with Peko at 52.7%.

+ Iron Men on the offensive line. Andrew Whitworth, Andre Smith, Nate Livings and Kyle Cook are the only offensive players to take part in every offensive snap this season.

+ Cedric Benson run blocks. Cedric Benson's statistic on run blocks seems slightly confusing because it would appear highly unlikely that Benson would be a run blocker on 16 runs this year. But based on how the statistics are categorized, Andy Dalton and Bruce Gradkowski account for six runs (which means they're scrambling out of the pocket) and it would also include wide receiver screens where the pass isn't going forward (aka lateral).

The season breakdown.
