Week 15 Cincinnati Bengals at San Francisco 49ers Snap Count: Changes aplenty

New, comments

In AJ McCarron's first NFL start, how did the Bengals' snap count breakdown?

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals spent 59 seconds more on offense than defense on Sunday in their win over the San Francisco 49ers, but, the defense actually took more snaps than the offense. Here's the breakdown of snap counts and notable takeaways from who played most and least.

  • Jeremy Hill sat on the bench for the first quarter and Giovani Bernard took on more snaps than his running back counterpart.
  • Even though A.J. Green left the game in the second half for precautionary reasons after tripping in Saturday's practice and injuring his back, he still played in more than 50 percent of offensive snaps.
  • Ryan Hewitt only played in 39 percent of snaps. The run game typically does better with him in the game so his low snap count is interesting.
  • It may have been due to Tyler Kroft's 92 percent of snaps played, in response to Tyler Eifert's concussion.
  • The five offensive line starters all played 100 percent of offensive snaps. Cedric Ogbuehi also played a handful of snaps.
  • Michael Johnson played the most of any of the Bengals' defensive lineman recording 88 percent of the snaps.
  • P.J. Dawson saw more snaps than he usually does and recorded 2 tackles and a pass defensed.
