In their 20-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the Arizona Cardinals played 82 offensive snaps. How were the snap divided up?

We go through each player and position group below.


Quarterback

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Kyler Murray, 82

Yes, Kyler played every snap again. This is as expected.

Running back

Syndication Arizona Republic

Kenyan Drake, 52; D.J. Foster, 17; Chase Edmonds, 16

Foster saw a lot of action in the second half, as he filled Edmonds' role in the passing game. Edmonds is day-to-day with his injury.

Wide receiver

DeAndre Hopkins, 75; Larry Fitzgerald, 71; Christian Kirk, 68; KeeSean Johnson, 20; Trent Sherfield, 5

Sherfield got a few more snaps than normal when Hopkins left the game before halftime. Otherwise, it was a lot of three-wide sets and a few with four wide receivers.

Tight ends

Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports

Dan Arnold, 36; Darrell Daniels, 30; Seth DeValve, 19

Arnold played more, which shows the Cardinals had a few more plays in passing sets. If they were running the ball more, Daniels would have played more.

Offensive line

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

D.J. Humphries, 82; Justin Pugh, 82; Mason Cole, 82; Justin Murray, 82; Kelvin Beachum, 82; J.R. Sweezy, 1

Sweezy took over Josh Jones' role as a jumbo tight end/tackle eligible. With Pugh and Murray in the lineup, there was no rotating at all. Listen to the latest from Cards Wire's Jess Root on his podcast, Rise Up, See Red. Subscribe on Apple podcasts or Spotify. Latest show:
