Snap Counts From The Seahawks' Week 10 Win at Arizona Cardinals

A closer look at the distribution of playing time in the Seahawks' Week 10 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

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 what we learned from the Seahawks' 22-16 win over the Cardinals in Week 10 at University of Phoenix Stadium:

Offense

  • Matt Tobin saw his first stint of extended action for the Seahawks, subbing on for Duane Brown in the second quarter after the left tackle suffered an ankle injury. Tobin went on to play 49 percent of Seattle's offensive snaps protecting Russell Wilson's blind side. Left guard Ethan Pocic, right tackle Germain Ifedi, right guard Oday Aboushi, and center Justin Britt, meanwhile, played 100 percent of the Seahawks' offensive plays. 
  • Doug Baldwin led the way at receiver, playing 78 percent of Seattle's offensive snaps. Tyler Lockett ranked second in snap counts, seeing action on 70 percent of Seattle's plays to Paul Richardson's 52 percent. Richardson, the team's No. 2 wideout coming into the game, was listed as questionable with a groin injury, which could have impacted his workload on a short week.
  • With Eddie Lacy inactive because of a groin injury the Seahawks looked to Thomas Rawls to carry the load at running back. Rawls played 46 percent of the Seahawks' snaps while running back J.D. McKissic saw action on 32 percent of the team's plays. Unfortunately, running back C.J. Prosise injured his other ankle against the Cardinals, which limited his play time (21 percent).
  • Jimmy Graham, who scored two more touchdowns in the red zone Thursday night, saw the field on 70 percent of the Seahawks' offensive snaps. Backup Luke Willson, meanwhile, was in for 38 percent of Seattle's plays.
  • Russell Wilson exited the game briefly in the third quarter after taking a hit to the chin. Backup Austin Davis came on to handle one snap before the Seahawks' starting quarterback returned to the field.

Defense

  • Injuries limited some starters' snaps, as linebacker Bobby Wagner and safety Bradley McDougald, who was making his second straight start in place of an injured Earl Thomas, were Seattle's only two players to play 100 percent of the Seahawks' defensive snaps.
  • With cornerback Richard Sherman going down with a season-ending Achilles injury, Justin Coleman and Jeremy Lane were forced into more action opposite rookie Shaquill Griffin. At cornerback, Griffin led the way playing 89 percent of the snaps, followed by Coleman (82 percent), Lane (58 percent), and Sherman (58 percent).
  • In his first game with the Seahawks, defensive end Dion Jordan was in on 41 percent of Seattle's defensive plays, recording a sack and three quarterback hits in his first game action since the 2014 season. 
  • Elsewhere along the defensive line, Michael Bennett played the most for Seattle, seeing the field on 85 percent of the Seahawks' defensive plays. Rookie Nazair Jones played 60 percent, while Sheldon Richardson and Dwight Freeney each played 51 percent. Frank Clark (38 percent), meanwhile, exited the game with a thigh injury in the fourth quarter.

Special Teams

  • D.J. Alexander and Neiko Thorpe recorded the most time on special teams, playing 80 percent of the plays. Alexander, who was listed as questionable with an ankle injury coming into the game, wound up leading the team with two special teams tackles.
  • Rushing from the same spot where Sherman usually lines up on the kick-block team, Lane, who was in for 27 percent of the special teams snaps, got his hand out to block a fourth-quarter extra point.
