Here’s how the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart broke down via snap counts in their 29-15 Week 17 win against the Atlanta Falcons:

Offense snap counts

  • The near-100 percent club on offense was as expected: The starting O-line plus QB Josh Allen. Ryan Bates started on the line but missed some snaps late due to injury (he is day-to-day).

  • Also on the O-line: Tommy Doyle played a season-high 24 percent of snaps, mostly helping with the run game.

  • OL Jon Feliciano did not start.

  • TE Dawson Knox was the only tight end to play again as Tommy Sweeney was inactive for a second-straight game.

  • After splitting time 68 to 33 percent last last week in snap counts, RB Devin Singletary was more of a workhorse, edging out Zack Moss 80 percent to 21 percent.

  • RB Matt Breida was the healthy scratch again in the backfield.

  • WR Gabriel Davis led his position in snaps played as Stefon Diggs briefly went down with injury and Emmanuel Sanders was inactive.

  • After leading WRs in snap counts last week, Isaiah McKenzie dipped to 32 percent. But he appears to have had cut into Cole Beasley’s snaps (49%).

  • The Bills offense outsnapped the defense, 76 to 53 total.

Defense snap counts

  • The near 100 percent club on defense was status quo: Most of the secondary and both LBs in Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano.

  • CB Taron Johnson was back near 100 percent as well after Siran Neal cut into some of his snaps played last week.

  • Harrison Phillips (68%) led DT snaps with Ed Oliver (60%) over Star Lotulelei (34%). Lotulelei and Oliver were the top two for most of the season.

  • DE Efe Obada’s snaps dropped from 59 percent to 21 percent vs. the Falcons. He likely played less snaps at DT as a hybrid player.

  • Leading DEs were Jerry Hughes (58%), Mario Addison (53%), and Greg Rousseau (49%).

  • Two DL healthy scratches to note: Boogie Basham and Vernon Butler. Both had played in back-to-back games prior to Week 17.

Special teams snaps

  • For the second-straight week P Matt Haack did not kick a ball (in the traditional sense). He did have one safety punt.

  • LB Tyler Matakevich was alone at the top of special teams snaps for the second-straight week (84%).

  • The large second-tier group (68%) remained the same as last week: FB Reggie Gilliam, WR Jake Kumerow, RB Taiwan Jones, S Jaquan Johnson, CB Siran Near, LB Tyrel Dodson, LB Andre Smith.
