Let's look at some of the statistical analysis from Sunday's New York Giants-Cleveland Browns game, using the NFL snap counts data and the Pro Football Focus grading system.

Snap Count Stuff

Here are some interesting nuggets from the snap counts information:

- Not only did Ahmad Bradshaw carry 30 times, but he played an unbelievable 71 snaps out of the Giants' 75 offensive plays.

- Martellus Bennett played 52 snaps despite hyper-extending his knee.

- The now-suspended Will Hill played 34 snaps against the Browns.

- Mathias Kiwanuka played only 25 snaps, 43 percent of the Giants' defensive plays.

- Spencer Paysinger started in place of Michael Boley and played 11 snaps.

- Adrian Tracy got seven snaps at defensive end.

Conclusion

I can only draw a couple of things from this that we didn't already know. Perhaps Linval Joseph played better Sunday than his stat line and the fact he didn't pressure the quarterback would indicate. Also, maybe those calls for Mark Herzlich at middle linebacker will come sooner rather than later.
