Week 17 Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens: Snap count shows changes in final week of season

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals got some young players involved in Sunday's win over the Ravens while seasoned veterans like Reggie Nelson and Adam Jones played the most snaps on defense.

The Bengals' Week 17 snap count was interesting as many players saw a change in playing time. It was announced before the game that Rey Maualuga would not be starting, though he began playing in the second quarter. It's possible he was being disciplined similarly to Jeremy Hill who sat in the first quarter of the Bengals' Week 15 win against the 49ers.

  • Leon Hall played only 36% of snaps, which allowed Chris Lewis Harris to play 36% of snaps as well. Interestingly, Lewis-Harris did well in his performance and was one of the highest-graded Bengals by PFF this week.
  • Jake Fisher took on a new role this week in the form of being a fullback and he did a good job. He also had one of his highest snap counts to date. "I was kind of learning the position as the game went along," Fisher said via Bengals.com. "You don’t get a lot of game-speed reps in practice. The biggest change is probably going downhill blocking instead of coming off the line for contact."
  • C.J. Uzomah played just three offensive snaps, showing the Bengals must have more faith in Fisher's ability to play fullback than Uzomah's. All of this is due to Ryan Hewitt's sprained knee, which was cost him an undetermined amount of time.
  • Rookie offensive lineman Cedric Ogbuehi also played, by far, his most snaps to date (25). He also was effective on Jeremy Hill's 38-yard rushing touchdown, completing a key block on the play.
  • The defense played 80 snaps while the offense played just 61.
