Chiefs snap counts, Week 15: DeAndre Baker played few snaps in debut
The Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints put on quite a show Sunday afternoon. A lot of offensive snapshots were played in this game. We also saw two players make their Chiefs debut. So what else can we learn about the snap sums from week 15?
Here's a look at how the snaps worked out this week:
* Snap counts through the NFL Game Statistics and Information System
The offensive was on the field for a total of 98 snapshots against the New Orleans Saints. This is a season high for the team and proof of how well the defense played on Sunday.
Stefen Wisniewski made his 2020 debut in Week 15. He played in all 98 snaps, starting on the right guard for the team. He certainly had his moments on Sunday in a glove of a debut game.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire starred in 45 snapshots before suffering leg and hip injuries. Despite this injury, he still managed 14 more snapshots at Le'Veon Bell.
Byron Pringle only played six offensive snapshots on his return from the injured reserve. He led offensive players in special team snaps when he was 26. It seems like he's mostly put back into things.
Anthony Sherman was a bit shy from his season high on the offensive. They seem to use it more often on the offensive. Last week he started against the Dolphins.
The Chiefs were often in their sub-package defense on Sundays, as evidenced by the fact that rookie CB L’Jarius Sneed got 93% of the defensive snaps. He's been playing the slot for Kansas City lately and made his third catch of the year in New Orleans.
Alex Okafor saw two more snapshots as Tanoh Kpassagnon in this case. Okafor used to play for the Saints so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with its use. Kpassagnon had the start for the team.
Ben Niemann played the most snapshots of all linebackers for the Chiefs on Sunday at 47. He didn't have a bad game either, and had eight tackles in total to lead the team in this statistic.
Willie Gay played in just 12 defensive snaps in week 15. Its use still depends on how often the team plays in its base defensive staff.
DeAndre Baker's highly anticipated debut ended on a fizzy drink. He only played seven snapshots in special teams that day and made no noticeable impression.
Armani Watts and Antonio Hamilton ended the day with the leadership in special teams at 30.
