Week 12 Cincinnati Bengals vs St. Louis Rams snap count: Heavy rotation applied on defense

New, comments

Here are our takeaways and the full breakdown of the Bengals' offensive and defensive snaps on Sunday against the Rams.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals' 31-7 win over the St. Louis Rams allowed for backup players to get in on the Sunday afternoon action. AJ McCarron took three snaps, including one pass and a couple handoffs to Rex Burkhead. What other notable takeaways can be found from the Bengals' offensive and defensive snap count from Week 12?

  • Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill received a nearly equal number of snaps and for the first time in a while, Hill was resoundingly more effective in the ground game. Hill recorded 39 yards rushing on 7 attempts while Bernard secured just nine yards on six attempts. Bernard did have a 45 yard catch in the third quarter, but fumbled the ball away before Tyler Eifert recovered it.
  • No defensive lineman played more than 73 percent of snaps and Michael Johnson played less than half of defensive snaps.
  • The linebackers also employed a heavy rotation with Vincent Rey's 46 snaps (63% of defensive snaps) being the most played by any linebacker. Vontaze Burfict also left the game in the fourth quarter with a foot injury.
  • Tyler Kroft saw the field more than he has in any game this season, playing 23 snaps and bringing in the first catch of his NFL career, though, he fell after a short gain, and will likely be made fun of for it.
