Jets at Bengals: Offensive and Defensive snap counts

New, comment

Taking a look at the snap distribution by the Bengals offense and defense during Cincinnati's 25-17 loss to the New York Jets.

John Grieshop

A few notes:

  • Andrew Whitworth played 14 snaps on offense -- essentially the first two series. However, Clint Boling and Kevin Zeitler played the entire first half.
  • Darqueze Dennard played one special teams snap in the first half and that's presumably when he got hurt -- he didn't play on defense at all. As a result, Chris Lewis-Harris and R.J. Stanford picked up the slack for second-team cornerbacks, joined by Victor Hampton, Onterio McCalebb and Lavelle Westbrooks (aka, the unmakeables).
  • Despite Jeremy Hill and Rex Burkhead suffering injuries Saturday night, BenJarvus Green-Ellis still only contributed with three snaps... meaning that the "this is why you keep Green-Ellis" school of thought took a serious hit.
  • Cobi Hamilton led the entire offense with 50 snaps. Despite the playing time, he's not taking advantage. Of the 12-13 targets, he caught only two passes on Saturday. All his fault? No. Will he make the 53-man roster? No. Will he make the practice squad? After what he's putting on tape during the preseason, he should make it.
  • If you're keeping score, most of the starting defense played the first four possessions against the Jets -- though the fourth possession was a mix of starters and backups. New York's possessions against the Bengals first-team defense went three-and-out, field goal, interception and three-and-out.
  • We're reaching the point, at least on snap distributions, in which we can assume that LaKendrick Ross, Larry Black, David King, Brandon Joiner, James Davidson, Lavelle Westbrooks, Onterio McCalebb, Victor Hampton, and Isaiah Lewis, won't make the 53-man roster -- not that there was much belief that they would.
