Bengals vs Steelers: Offensive and defensive snap counts

New, comments

Taking a look at the offensive and defensive snap counts in Pittsburgh for the Bengals.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Here are some notes and interesting aspects of the Bengals' offensive and defensive snap counts from the team's Week 8 matchup in Pittsburgh.

  • Vontaze Burfict played in his first game since being lost for the year due to a knee injury in November 2014. While many predicted he'd play no more than 20 snaps, he actually played in 36 snaps, or 48 percent of all defensive snaps. That was in part due to Rey Maualuga getting hurt early in the game and never returning. What Burfict was able to accomplish in his first game back (5 tackles) is pretty impressive.
  • Jeremy Hill had three more snaps than Giovani Bernard.But, Bernard only had one rushing attempt for 12 yards while Hill had 15 attempts for 60 yards. Neither scored a touchdown. Bernard was targeted for three passes, making two catches for 22 yards while Hill caught the one pass he was targeted on for eight yards.
  • Eric Winston filled in for Andre Smith once he left the game due to injury.
  • Carlos Dunlap leaving the game due to injury allowed for Wallace Gilberry and Will Clarke to each play more than they have in recent games.
  • Former Steelers linebacker, Chris Carter played 7 snaps, 9 percent of defensive snaps in the game.
