It's interesting to note Manny Lawson's declining snap totals. You have to go all the way back to Miami to find Lawson contributing over 50 percent of the team's defensive snaps. And over the course of the past three weeks, Lawson has a total of 40 defensive snaps, which translates to 19 percent over three games.
Pat Sims made his season debut on Sunday, contributing with 24 defensive snaps. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap posted a season-high 51 defensive snaps and the Cincinnati Bengals secondary were very active.
Actually it appeared the Bengals played (at least) a five-man secondary throughout much of the game against the New York Giants with five defensive backs accumulating at least 54 defensive snaps. Dre Kirkpatrick made his defensive debut also when Adam Jones went down with an injury.
