    Tracking Snap Counts, 2018

    Here are our top snap count takeaways from the Bengals’ win over the Colts:

    • There is no more rotation at offensive tackle. Cordy Glenn (55) and Bobby Hart (55) both played the entire game. Although maybe they should try a different option at right tackle as Hart was destroyed all game long. He even allowed former-Bengals defensive lineman Margus Hunt to get two sacks on Andy Dalton.
    • The Bengals were severely out-snapped by the Colts. Cincinnati ran 55 plays while the Colts ran 82. The biggest reason for this is because the Bengals defense couldn’t get off the field on third down. Indianapolis was 11/17 on third downs. That is something that needs to be corrected after it was a huge issue last season as well.
    • Joe Mixon (42) saw a vast majority of the snaps at running back after his hot start to the game. Giovani Bernard (14) still saw time, but it was hard to take Mixon off the field with how productive he was. He had 149 total yards and a touchdown against the Colts. It will be interesting to see if that will become the norm going forward.
    • John Ross (36) caught his first pass and touchdown on Sunday, but he was still third in snaps at receiver. A.J. Green (52) obviously led the pack, and Tyler Boyd (48) saw plenty of playing time as well. It seemed to work out well as everyone was fairly productive.
    • Tyler Eifert (22) was kept under his 50 snap count pretty easily as the team looks to preserve him for the entire season. What is more interesting is that Tyler Kroft (17) didn’t have the most snaps at tight end. It was actually C.J. Uzomah (36) was out there the most. It may have been due to him being one of the better blockers out of the group, but it is especially interesting after Kroft scored seven touchdowns last season.
    • Defenders who played all 82 snaps include William Jackson, Nick Vigil and Jessie Bates III. Bates is kind of surprising, but it seemed like the team doesn’t want to rotate that much outside of the defensive line if they don’t have to. Jackson also finally doesn’t have to rotate anymore, and is clearly viewed as one of the best defenders on the team after breaking out last season. Vigil’s numbers shouldn’t be surprising. He did this last season until an injury ended his year early.
    • Billy Price also took all the snaps at center. This means both Price and Bates played their entire first game in the NFL. That is basically unheard of for a Marvin Lewis team, which hopefully says a lot about the future for these players. Typically, offensive linemen don’t leave the game unless there’s an injury, so expect Price to be playing 100 percent of this year’s snaps.
    • It was strange not to see Vincent Rey playing with Vontaze Burfict serving his suspension. It was also strange not to see him replace Preston Brown (46) when he went down with an injury. It seem like the team has more confidence in their younger linebackers like Jordan Evans (31) and Hardy Nickerson Jr. (36) going forward. This may be a farewell season for Rey.
    • It only took Shawn Williams 13 snaps to get ejected due to his hit on Andrew Luck. This allowed Clayton Fejedelem (69) to play extensively though. It also allowed him to make the game-winning play when he forced a fumble, scooped it up and then took it to the house.
    • As far as the defensive line goes, it is much of the same as Carlos Dunlap (65) and Geno Atkins (56) are playing a majority of the game. One thing to watch will be how long Michael Johnson (46) holds onto his snaps ahead of what seems to be much more talented group of linemen in Carl Lawson (42), Jordan Willis (39) and even Sam Hubbard (7 defensive snaps and 1 on offense).

    I thought Bates played well for his first game. Price was up and down but he settled in pretty well after a rough start.

    If Hart continues to blow chunks, Fisher is next guy up. He didn’t look good this preseason and he struggled last year, too... although he seemed to improve before they shelved him for the medical situation. Redmond wasn’t great, either. OL is facing a much better front 7 this week.

    Here are the snap count takeaways for Week 2:

    • Michael Johnson (4) left the game early, which opened the gates for Sam Hubbard (49 defensive snaps and one offensive snap) to give Cincinnati fans a taste of why he was taken in the third round. He had 1.5 sacks on the night, and he was always around the ball when he was on the field.
    • Shawn William (70) had quite the comeback game against Baltimore. He didn’t even get to 20 plays in Week 1 before he was ejected. In Week 2, he picked off Joe Flacco and then got a sack fumble deep in Ravens’ territory that helped seal the game for the Bengals. All in all, he really made up for missing Week 1.
    • Overall, the Bengals still ran less plays than the Ravens. Cincinnati ran a total of 76 while Baltimore hit 85. The Bengals’ defense was better on third down, as Baltimore only converted seven of 16, but Cincinnati had their own issues, only converting five of 13. Not to mention the Bengals also forced three turnovers which helped close the gap.
    • Joe Mixon (39) and Giovani Bernard (39) split the snaps right down the middle. That is a bit deceiving though as both running backs shared the field a couple of plays. The split was so close to 50/50 because Mixon dealt with a knee injury for most of the night. He missed several drives due to the issue. Both backs combined for over 100 yards rushing.
    • Tyler Boyd (58) has cemented himself as the second receiver behind A.J. Green (69). He took advantage of his snaps by catching six of his nine targets for 91 yards and a touchdown. John Ross (45) was third in snaps for receivers, but he failed to make too much noise only catching one of his four targets for eight yards.
    • Tight end continues to be run by committee. C.J. Uzomah (37) and Tyler Kroft (34) took a back seat to Tyler Eifert (49) this week after only receiving 22 snaps in Week 1. Eifertremained under his snap count limit of 50, and the other tight ends were benefited by the Bengals constantly going into two tight end sets. Uzomah was the most productive of the group though with three catches for 45 yards.
    • Hardy Nickerson Jr. (84) only missed one snap while he was replacing Preston Brown, who couldn’t go due to injury. It was a pretty mixed bag for the young linebacker. He struggled a bit in coverage, but he was around for a few stops. Jordan Evans, who is playing in place of the suspended Vontaze Burfict, only played 22 of the snaps. Meanwhile, Vincent Rey failed to see the field on defense again in Week 2.
    • Also for those keeping track, Cedric Ogbuehi and Christian Westerman were both still inactive again. Meanwhile, Alex Redmond (76) and Bobby Hart (76) both played the entire game.

    Here are the Bengals’ Week 3 snap count takeaways:


    • The first thing most people want to do after the loss is bench John Ross (31) for his part of allowing an interception late in the game. However, other receivers got a chance on Sunday and failed to make even the slightest impact. Josh Malone (29) caught one pass for 10 yards on three targets, and Alex Erickson (7) and Cody Core (6) both failed to even get targeted in their first offensive snaps of the season. What happened with Ross was frustrating, but who are you replacing him with?
    • It is also worth noting that the Bengals opted to activate Core over Auden Tate. The rookie wide receiver made a name for himself this offseason as a huge target in the red zone, but it seemed this move was more special teams driven as the team was down to two active running backs without Tra Carson (who was waived and then put on IR) and Joe Mixon. To Core’s credit he did down a punt at the one-yard line on Sunday.
    • As far as total snaps go, it was far closer than you’d expect of a game where Cincinnati had four turnovers to Carolina’s zero. The Bengals ran 65 plays while the Panthers ran 67. The Bengals did an okay job at getting Carolina off the field on third down considering their usual rate. The Panthers were six of 13 on third downs and even failed to convert a fourth down as well.
    • The Bengals need Preston Brown or Vontaze Burfict back in the worst way. Hardy Nickerson Jr. played 56 snaps while Jordan Evans kicked in 41, but neither looked like they should’ve been starting against this Panthers offense that ran for 230 yards. It got to the point that even Vincent Rey played two defensive snaps. Those were his first of the season. It should also be noted that Nick Vigil (67) was the only player to play every defensive snap.




    • The Bengals love playing their tight ends. Tyler Eifert (42) still leads the bunch, but C.J. Uzomah (35) is close behind, and he ended up catching the touchdown for the tight ends on Sunday. Eifert had his most productive day with six catches for 74 yards, though. Tyler Kroftalso kicked in 21 snaps, but it is clear he was the third man on the totem pole before he left the game with injury.
    • Due to several injuries along the defensive line Josh Tupou (20) ended up playing a fairly significant amount of time in the first game that he was active during the season. Rookie running back Mark Walton (7) was also active for the first time. His debut was slightly disappointing as we thought we’d see more of him since it was just him and Bernard at running back. However, he only had one impressive run that was called back by holding. Christian Westerman was also active for the first time this season, but only saw snaps (4) on special teams.
    • Jake Fisher and Sam Hubbard saw three offensive snaps, all in Cincinnati’s goal-to-go jumbo personnel. Many fans are probably hoping Fisher gets a chance to start soon, but for now, Bobby Hart is holding down the spot at right tackle.

    Snap count takeaways:

    • Tyler Eifert’s injury left a huge hole as far as snap counts goes. After steadily getting more and more work, his game against the Falcons seemed like the first time they really let him loose. He had four catches for 38 and his first touchdown in only 19 snaps on Sunday. Of course he suffered an ankle injury that ended his season early in the third quarter, so who ended up leading the charge at tight end then? That would be C.J. Uzomah with 51 snaps. It may be time for fans to start recognizing his name as he has quietly had a solid season so far in a limited role. He only had one catch for six yards this week, but he has seven catches for 74 yards and a touchdown on the season so far.
    • The Bengals actually out snapped the Falcons 73 to 70. Cincinnati also had the ball for a little over a minute longer than Atlanta. The Bengals defense still struggled to get off the field as the Falcons converted 11 of 15 third downs, but Cincinnati’s offense helped balance it out by having five more first downs than Atlanta. The Bengals defense also made a few big stops in the red zone that greatly impacted the result of the game.
    • Nothing has really changed along the offensive line as Cordy Glenn, Clint Boling, Trey Hopkins, Alex Redmond and Bobby Hart each played all of their snaps. It will be interesting to see with rookie center Billy Price likely returning either this week or the next if the Bengals will decide to shuffle things up since Hopkins has played at about an average level at center. The right side of the offensive line could use a real shake up after a fairly rough outing. Unfortunately, it is something that if we haven’t seen it by now we have to wonder if we will see it at all.
    • Tyler Boyd (62) was out snapped by Green (71), but it was Boyd who saw the most targets on Sunday with 15. He turned those targets into 11 catches for 100 yards, his first 100 yard receiving game of his career. With Eifert gone for the season, Boyd has become the lone safety blanket underneath for Dalton. It shouldn’t be surprising if this becomes the norm for Boyd.

    • John Ross made his presence known on Sunday. He caught two passes for 52 yards and a touchdown. He did this in just 17 snaps as he pulled his groin on that touchdown grab. It was still great to see him making plays after a rough week where a portion of the fan base piled on him with criticism about his effort last week.
    • Giovani Bernard (44) had two rushing touchdowns on the day with 96 total yards. We also saw plenty of the rookie running back Mark Walton (28). He made his presence known with 37 total yards on seven touches Sunday.
    • Michael Johnson (29) was put back into the rotation at defensive end. This took a bite out of Carl Lawson’s (32) and Jordan Willis’ (29) snaps as they were all used pretty evenly. Carlos Dunlap led all defensive ends with 52 snaps, as Lawson and him both recorded sacks on the day. Lawson got his first sack of the season after one was called back by a ridiculous roughing the passer call earlier in the game.
    • This was the Bengals first game without defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow as he was put on injured reserve following the Panthers’ game. Geno Atkins (50) played about the same amount of snaps as before. Andrew Billings also played 34 snaps, which is about normal for him. A defensive lineman who saw a huge jump in snaps though was rookie defensive lineman Sam Hubbard who played a whopping 40 snaps. The Bengals didn’t activate newly-acquired defensive tackle Adolphus Washington for this game, so this explains Hubbard’s increased exposure, especially at defensive tackle.

    • The Bengals actually out snapped the Falcons 73 to 70. Cincinnati also had the ball for a little over a minute longer than Atlanta. The Bengals defense still struggled to get off the field as the Falcons converted 11 of 15 third downs, but Cincinnati’s offense helped balance it out by having five more first downs than Atlanta. The Bengals defense also made a few big stops in the red zone that greatly impacted the result of the game.


    I think this was a huge factor in the game. Falcons actually had something like a 6 minute advantage at halftime. Which means, the Bengals had roughly a 7 minute advantage in the 2nd half that kept the Falcons offense off the field.

    Yep... that stat surprised me, because there was a huge difference at the half. Long drives and finally making (just a few) 3rd down stops tipped the scales.

    Here are the snap count takeaways:

    • The Bengals were barely out snapped by the Dolphins. Cincinnati saw 60 offensive snaps while Miami had 64. Neither team was good on third down as the Bengals only converted two of 11 and the Dolphins weren’t much better only converting four of 13. The things that skew the numbers were the Bengals two defensive touchdowns that obviously are great for the team, but it makes the total number of offensive plays sort of a nonissue this week.
    • Tyler Eifert was put on injured reserve, and he left some big shoes to fill. The team even had Mason Schreck activated and played 12 offensive snaps on the day. It was C.J. Uzomah, however, who saw 55 snaps, which was almost every offensive play for the Bengals. He had two catches, both of which went for first downs and 43 yards overall. It wasn’t the greatest stat line, but if anyone is expecting him to put up Eifert numbers, then they are dreaming. Tyler Kroft also got 24 snaps, so he he is established as the second tight end on the depth chart.
    • Vontaze Burfict made his season debut while playing 34 snaps. It seems like the team wanted to ease him in, but it could be that the Bengals are trying to find a way to get the most out of their linebacking trio. Nick Vigil, who has been playing almost every defensive snap when healthy the past two seasons, only played 46 snaps. That still led the unit, but Preston Brown also saw 42 snaps himself. In the modern NFL, it is hard to have three linebackers out there because offenses use so many three wide receiver sets, but the Bengals seem to be trying to make it work.
    • Also with Burfict’s return, Jordan Evans (11) and Hardy Nickerson Jr. (8) both saw their snaps drop dramatically. Malik Jefferson also was inactive for the second time this season, but he has yet to take any defensive snaps anyway.

    • The defensive line saw their first look including Adolphus Washington (17) at defensive tackle. The Bengals acquired him last week, and this was his first time actually being active. This actually impacted Sam Hubbard (28) the most actually. Last week he led all players not named Geno Atkins (41) and Carlos Dunlap (50) on the defensive line in snaps. Of course, Hubbard still left his signature on the game with his defensive touchdown to help seal the game. Carl Lawson and Jordan Willis each played 31 snaps as well, and Andrew Billingshad 36. Billings was actually one of the main players pressuring Ryan Tannehill when he forced the pass that ended up in Michael Johnson’s (22) hands for a touchdown.
    • John Ross was out this week with a hamstring injury, and it seem Alex Erickson is the next up on the depth chart as he played 36 snaps. Josh Malone was next up with 10 snaps and Cody Core with eight. Erickson was the only one to do anything with his time as he caught three passes for 24 yards.

    The Bengals were barely out snapped by the Dolphins.
    Well, when the defense scores a TD, the other offense goes right back on the field.

  10. #10
    Here are this week’s snap count takeaways:

    • This is the obligatory update of the Bengals getting out snapped by their opponent. The Bengals had 61 snaps while the Steelers had 73. The two teams were close at halftime in this respect, but Cincinnati failed to maintain drives as well in the second half.
    • The receiver position was the one that caught the most flack on Sunday. John Ross wasn’t able to go with a groin injury. Alex Erickson (46) played a vast majority of the third receiver snaps. He still only ended up with two catches for eight yards. That was so much better than Cody Core though. Core had three targets, and two ended up being pretty crucial drops. What’s weird is Core only played nine snaps. That is way too high of a target-to-snap ratio for Core. Josh Malone (four) played less than Core, and at this point you have to question why that was. Is Malone worse than Core? If only the Bengals had another option that they could activate when Ross can’t go... (Before you comment, I’m talking about Auden Tate. I think Auden Tate should be active over Core).
    • Okay lets jump into the mess that was the snap distribution in the secondary. We’re going to start with the safeties. Jessie Bates played the most snaps of any defender with 69. He missed four plays while being checked for a concussion, but he came back in and ended up making the stop that led to the Bengals goal line stand that kept them in the game. Shawn Williams (42) left the game twice to be checked for a concussion and the second time he left they kept him out for good. This opened up the door for Clayton Fejedelem (33) to play. We even saw a glimpse of Brandon Wilson at safety for two plays.
    • The cornerback position was far more fluid. William Jackson was questionable coming into the day, but he ended up playing the most snaps of any corner with 64. Dre Kirkpatrickwasn’t far behind with 63 plays though. Darqueze Dennard left the game with a shoulder injury after only playing 12 plays. Tony McRae filled in with 20 snaps, and rookie corner back Darius Phillips played four plays. Phillips even made the stop and forced the fumble that held Pittsburgh to their second field goal in the fourth quarter.
    • It appears the Bengals are over the Hardy Nickerson Jr. experiment as he only played five snaps despite Nick Vigil (13) getting knocked out of the game early. Instead it was Vincent Rey who replaced Vigil with 47 snaps. He was just ahead of Preston Brown (45). Vontaze Burfict played 61 snaps, which was the most of any linebacker, and Jordan Evans kicked in 23 snaps as well. The Linebackers got plenty of run as the Steelers often went with a two-tight end set.

    Carlos Dunlap preaches what Bengals fans have always been saying



    • Carlos Dunlap (50) and Geno Atkins (54) led the defensive line in snaps. Surprisingly (or maybe not), Michael Johnson was right behind them with 45 snaps. This was significantly more than Carl Lawson (22), Jordan Willis (27) and Sam Hubbard (26). It seems like the Bengals chose to go with experience there, but no one really helped get pressure that much on Sunday anyway. However, having Johnson out there for 45 plays isn’t going to help that.
    • Joe Mixon played 42 snaps on Sunday. I’m not stating this to say he should’ve played more because there is a decent chance the team and/or Mixon weren’t trying to push the running back too much. The issue is Mark Walton’s 19 snaps and the fact he didn’t do anything of note with them. He had two carries for negative two yards on the day. It seems like if Cincinnati was going to rotate Mixon against the Steelers that they shouldn’t have been so quick to part with a running back like Thomas Rawls. You could probably make an argument that you give those 19 snaps to Rawls he gives you more than negative two yards. This performance just makes the Bengals pick of Walton that much more confusing. He is still a rookie though, but this is something he needs to learn from.
