Quarterback

David Blough, 74

Blough played every snap, but didn’t take every snap, as there were a couple of direct-snap plays to running back James Conner.

Running back

James Conner, 41; Corey Clement, 32; Keaontay Ingram, 1

Conner would have played nearly every snap had he not injured his shin in the second half. The surprise is the playing time Clement got. He, not Ingram, took Conner’s snaps.

 

Wide receiver

Marquise Brown, 67; Greg Dortch, 60; Andre Baccellia, 35; Robbie Anderson, 17; A.J. Green, 12; Pharoh Cooper, 7

The surprise here is the number of snaps for Baccellia, who had one catch. Anderson got hurt early. Dortch’s playing time went up but had four catches for 15 yards.

Stephen Anderson ended up being ruled out before kickoff with an illness. McBride played almost every snap. Williams played a lot, too.

Josh Jones, 74; Max Garcia, 74; Billy Price, 74; Will Hernandez, 74; Kelvin Beachum, 74; Sean Harlow, 2

The starting offensive line played every snap. Harlow entered the game twice as an eligible receiver — a jumbo tight end for blocking.
