Here’s how the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart broke down via snap counts in Week 2 vs. the Miami Dolphins:

Offense snap counts

  • After Cody Ford rotated out of the game in Week 1 in favor of Ike Boettger, Week 2 saw the Bills rolled with (mostly) the same five along the offensive line.

  • WR Emmanuel Sanders was again the clear-cut No. 2 behind Stefon Diggs over Gabriel Davis. Sanders only played one less snap than Diggs while Davis played in 32 percent of snaps.

  • Also affecting Davis and potentially WR Cole Beasley was TE Dawson Knox, who played in 83 percent of snaps. That's up from a Week 1 total of 56 percent and the highest amongst any playmakers, but starters were sat.

  • RB Zack Moss made his season debut, appearing in 18 snaps. That caused RB Devin Singletary to drop from 75 percent of snaps played to 66 percent.

Defense snap counts

  • In Week 1, the Bills' secondary and linebackers all played near-100 percent of snaps. Due to the blowout score, Buffalo played numerous backups late in the game.

  • This rotation also might have skewed the DE rotation as Jerry Hughes played the most along the edge in Week 1 but played the least vs. Miami. Also seeing a big increase was AJ Epenesa, he was up to 33 total snaps after playing only 19 in Week 1.

  • DE Efe Obada did not feature in the D-line rotation, missing the game due to a calf injury.

  • Rookie second-round pick in DE Boogie Basham was a healthy scratch for the second-straight game.

  • DT Harrison Phillips was a health scratch for the first time in 2021.

  • DT Star Lotulelei played in 42 percent of snaps in his first game since 2019.

  • Despite others rotating in, DT Ed Oliver still led his position with 40 total snaps played. He also did so in Week 1.

Special teams snaps

  • FB Reggie Gilliam led special teamers with 95 percent of snaps played.

  • Last week, RB Taiwan Jones and LB Tyler Matakevitch led snaps, but this week only dropped down to second at 68 percent.

  • The Dolphins only kicked the ball off once to the Bills, likely altering these snap counts all around.
