St. Louis Rams At Green Bay Packers: Snap Counts, Playing Time And Personnel Analysis

New, comments

Injuries to Chris Long, Rodger Saffold and Kenny Britt rearranged the playing time as did the emergence of Todd Gurley as a workhorse running back. Here's how the playing time settled out.

Offense

Greg Robinson T 71 100.00%
Rob Havenstein T 71 100.00%
Jamon Brown G 71 100.00%
Nick Foles QB 71 100.00%
Tim Barnes C 70 98.59%
Tavon Austin WR 55 77.46%
Jared Cook TE 54 76.06%
Kenny Britt WR 53 74.65%
Garrett Reynolds G 52 73.24%
Todd Gurley RB 45 63.38%
Stedman Bailey WR 44 61.97%
Lance Kendricks TE 39 54.93%
Cory Harkey TE 20 28.17%
Benny Cunningham RB 20 28.17%
Brian Quick WR 20 28.17%
Rodger Saffold T 19 26.76%
Tre Mason RB 5 7.04%
Demetrius Rhaney C 1 1.41%

The totals skew things a bit, as the Rams' 71 offensive snaps was the highest of the season and by quite a bit; the previous high was 60 from the Week 1 win over the Seahawks. So Tavon Austin's 55 plays was a season high, his 77.46% work rate was a season low.

A big week for Stedman Bailey with only his second game over a 60% rate, the other being Week 2.

And Tre Mason is barely seeing the field anymore. Benny's the clear #2 behind Todd Gurley.

Defense

T.J. McDonald SS 62 100.00%
Rodney McLeod FS 62 100.00%
Janoris Jenkins CB 62 100.00%
Trumaine Johnson CB 62 100.00%
James Laurinaitis LB 62 100.00%
Lamarcus Joyner CB 53 85.48%
Aaron Donald DT 50 80.65%
Mark Barron SS 50 80.65%
William Hayes DE 43 69.35%
Robert Quinn DE 39 62.90%
Michael Brockers DT 38 61.29%
Eugene Sims DE 29 46.77%
Nick Fairley DT 27 43.55%
Akeem Ayers LB 20 32.26%
Chris Long DE 15 24.19%
Daren Bates LB 8 12.90%

While the Rams' offense saw the most work of the season on Sunday, the defense saw its lightest workload with just 62 snaps.

With OLB Alec Ogletree out for a while, CB Lamarcus Joyner and S Mark Barron were the two major recipients of his playing time share. Joyner hit a season-high 85.47% (previous high: Week 4 @ Arizona, 74.32%) while Barron came in at 80.65% (previous high: Week 4 @ Arizona, 70.27%).

With Ethan Westbrooks among the inactives and the Chris Long injury as well, it was perhaps surprising to see DE Robert Quinn hit a season-low work rate. That meant increased time for the recently returning DE Eugene Sims (season high 46.77%), DE Williiam Hayes (season high 69.35%) and DT Nick Fairley (season high 43.55%).
