Curious who plays in each game and how much they play, as well as what the distribution of playing time might mean? Throughout the season, we'll post the snap counts for the Seahawks the day after each game and take a look at what stood out.
Here's a few notes from the Seahawks' 30-24 Week 14 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars:
- Russell Wilson, as well as Seattle's five offensive linemen, played all 62 offensive snaps. Sunday's game was the third straight with a line of Duane Brown, Luke Joeckel, Justin Britt, Ethan Pocic and Germain Ifedi playing together, marking only the second time this season the Seahawks have been able to start the same five linemen for three consecutive games, having also done so in Weeks 3-5.
- Doug Baldwin led receivers with 95 percent playing time, just ahead of Paul Richardson (94 percent). Tyler Lockett, who had his second touchdown in as many games, played 63 percent of the snaps, Tanner McEvoy played 27 percent and Amara Darboh played 6 percent.
- Running back Mike Davis was impressive again, rushing for 66 yards on 15 carries, but was limited to 48 percent playing time due to a rib injury. J.D. McKissic played 50 percent of the snaps, while Thomas Rawls was on the field for one play.
- At tight end, Jimmy Graham played 61 percent of the snaps, Luke Willson played 32 percent and Nick Vannett played 21 percent.
- Safeties Earl Thomas and Bradley McDougald played all 66 snaps, while cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell played all but one snap, coming out when Seattle had a goal-line package on the field.
- Linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright, usually every-down players, were limited to 47 percent and 56 percent playing time, respectively, because of injuries. That meant more playing time than usual for Michael Wilhoite (71 percent), Terence Garvin (50 percent) and D.J. Alexander (29 percent).
- Jarran Reed and Michael Bennett each played 86 percent of the snaps, most among defensive linemen, followed by Frank Clark (70 percent), Sheldon Richardson (65 percent), Quinton Jefferson (32 percent), Branden Jackson (30 percent), Marcus Smith (29 percent), and Rodney Coe, who played two snaps in his NFL debut.
- In addition to seeing his first significant playing time on defense this season, Alexander also led the Seahawks in special teams snaps at 81 percent, followed by Neiko Thorpe at 78 percent and Delano Hill at 69 percent. McEvoy, Wilhoite and Garvin played 62 percent of the snaps, while Willson, Vannett and Darboh played 50 percent.
