Tre Mason RB 12 24.00%
Chase Reynolds RB 1 2.00%

While it seemed like Kenny Britt was a focal point of the Rams' inept offense, he was actually on the field for half of the offensive snaps. (insert Shruggie here)

What is Brian Quick even for? (insert Shruggie here)

Just Todd Gurley has played just 53% of the snaps the last four weeks with just nine carries in each of the last two games. (insert that damn Shruggie here)

Chase Reynolds offensive contribution alert...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Matt Longacre DE 38 45.24%
William Hayes DE 36 42.86%
Maurice Alexander SS 26 30.95%
Cody Davis FS 1 1.19%

The Rams' offense is averaging just more than 60 snaps per game. By that rate, the Rams' defense has actually played two more games than the offense.

The two starting defensive ends, Robert Quinn and Chris Long, have both played less than 40% of the defensive snaps this season. This comes as Matt Longacre's participation hit a season-high on Sunday.

Cody Davis defensive contribution alert...¯\_(ツ)_/¯
