Bengals snap count takeaways from win over 49ers

The Cincinnati Bengals exploded out of the bye for a dominant-looking win over the San Francisco 49ers to move the needle to 4-3.

After entering the game pretty healthy, the snap counts provided some interesting takeaways:

  • Ja’Marr Chase checked in just under 90 percent of the offensive snaps, but they moved him all over the place, helping him get 10 catches for 100 yards and a score, plus opening up the offense for others.

  • After losing rookie Chase Brown to injury, Joe Mixon took 75 percent of the snaps and rushed for 87 yards and a score on a 5.4 average.

  • On his way back from the fractured rib, Tee Higgins played 67 percent of the snaps while catching five passes for 69 yards.

  • Irv Smith led all tight ends with 59 percent of the snaps, seeing just four targets with the big fumble.

  • Rookie Andrei Iosivas played just 10 snaps, yet caught the second touchdown of his career.

  • Despite limping off a few times, Cam Taylor-Britt played 57 snaps, or 97 percent of the possible.

  • Speaking of limping off, Trey Hendrickson still logged 66 percent of the snaps despite going to the blue medical tent after being stepped on.

  • Zach Carter got 46 percent of the snaps but didn’t have a big day, while Chidobe Awuzie didn’t even start, playing the same percentage while he continues to work back from a back injury.

  • Joseph Ossai continues to get minimal work in the rotation, playing just nine snaps. Rookie first-rounder Myles Murphy played nine.
