Week 16 Bengals at Broncos: Bengals snap count shows mix of rotation and consistency

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals played 72 snaps on offense and 65 on defense in Monday night's overtime loss.

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports
A grueling game that went into overtime saw for some positions a heavy rotation, while at other positions, the starters played in 100 percent of the action. Here are some of the interesting snap count takeaways and the full breakdown from the Bengals' Monday Night Football game against the Broncos.
  • After Ryan Hewitt injured his knee five snaps into the game, rookies C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft got a big share of plays in the game. Kroft is undoubtedly the Bengals' rookie MVP of the season. Kroft made 4 catches for 46 yards and was the second leading receiver on the night for the Bengals.
  • Cedric Ogbuehi started the year on the Non-Football Injury list, missing the first six games of the season, but has contributed on offense since his return. On Monday, he played 11 snaps, coming in as an extra lineman as all five starters played 100 percent of the offensive snaps.
  • Jeremy Hill edged out Giovani Bernard by five snaps for the most snaps by a running back against the Broncos. Hill rushed for 63 yards on 19 carries while Bernard recorded 14 yards rushing on 8 carries. Bernard also contributed with 29 yards in the passing game, including some exceptional catches and third down conversions, while Hill recorded -2 yards catching the ball.
  • Geno Atkins played in 60 percent of snaps, which is about 10-15 percent less than a normal game for the Bengals' star defensive tackle.
  • Shawn Williams exited the game after colliding with Kevin Huber's knee on a punt return, but only missed one play. Nearly everyone was too busy to watch that play, during which Derron Smith entered, as they freaked out about Williams' (non)-injury.
