Giants-Redskins snap counts: What do the numbers reveal?

New, comments

Who played a lot, and who did not, Sunday for the Giants?

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The closer we get to the end of the 2014 NFL season the more interesting looking at the weekly snap counts for the New York Giants gets. With all the injuries the Giants have suffered new players are getting on the field, some succeeding, some not so much. We get a look at them, however, and the snap counts give us an indication who might, or might not, be part of the future plan.

With that preamble, let's look at the data.

Offense

With running back Rashad Jennings re-injuring his ankle on his only snap of the day, Andre Williams played 56 of 61 offensive snaps.

Rueben Randle, sitting out the first quarter for the second time in three games, played only 31 snaps. Kevin Ogletree played 19 snaps. Corey Washington caught a 4-yard pass on the only snap he played.

Adrien Robinson once again saw some action at tight end. He played 12 snaps. Larry Donnell played 38, and Daniel Fells 29.

Henry Hynoski played 20 snaps as the Giants used a lot of two-tight end or heavy formations involving the fullback.

Defense

Stevie Brown, Antrel Rolle and Jameel McClain were the three Giants who played all 70 defensive snaps. Cornerback Chykie Brown and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul each played 68.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played 57 snaps, and Zack Bowman was in for 14.

Rookie linebacker Devon Kennard played 49 snaps, still not getting total full-time duty.

Several young defensive linemen got significant playing time. Kerry Wynn played 41 snaps and Damontre Moore 39. Rookie defensive tackle Jay Bromley played 16 snaps, while Markus Kuhn played only 11.
