Want to know how many snaps each Texans player participated in against Buffalo?
Here you go.
Thanks to the great folks at www.NFLGSIS.com, they've charted every Texans player's snap count, giving you an inside look at the amount of time players were on the field against the Bills.
The chart, which you can see in full below, is full of great information for any football fan. Let's dive in.
First off, the Texans offense ran 68 plays, while the defense was on the field for 70 snaps.
Offensively, the Texans had a lot of continuity up front, with lineman Derek Newton, Brandon Brooks, Ben Jones and Chris Myers playing every snap. They were the only offensive players, along with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, to play the entire game. Duane Brown was in on 99% (67 plays) of the time, stepping out for one snap due to an apparent lower leg injury.
The big news before the game was that running back Arian Foster would start, but head coach Bill O'Brien split the load carrying the ball. Foster tallied 36 plays, while backup Alfred Blue was subbed in for 32. Fullback Jay Prosch got in 11 plays.
The Texans defense subbed with much more frequency, with only three players (Kareem Jackson, Kendrick Lewis and D.J. Swearinger) logging 100% playtime. New addition Ryan Pickett wasted no time getting onto the field, lining up for 20 snaps at nose tackle for the Texans. The linebacker position had a lot of different contributors, with six players seeing snaps at that spot. Whitney Mercilus was tops on the list with 55 snaps.
