The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-17 in Week 10, in spite of their inability to keep possession of the football.
This week saw practically an even helping of offensive (63) and defensive (64) snaps, which meant a much less taxing game for the team. A week ago they played 100 total offensive snaps in the overtime win over the Tennessee Titans.
What else can we learn from the weekly snap numbers? Here’s a look at how the snaps came down in Week 10:
*Snap counts via NFL Game Statistics and Information System
Isiah Pacheco has been the team’s starting running back in each of the last three games, but this was the first week that he led the team in snaps at the position. Jerick McKinnon saw the second-most snaps, while Clyde Edwards-Helaire saw a career-low of just four snaps on offense.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling led receivers in snaps this week with Justin Watson closely behind him. Skyy Moore had the fewest snaps among receivers with 16.
Kadarius Toney saw his offensive snaps increase from 9 last week to 28 this week. That’s a pretty big jump in just a two-week span.
Prince Tega Wanogho played 38 snaps at right tackle after Andrew Wylie exited with an injury.
L’Jarius Sneed, Nick Bolton, Juan Thornhill and Justin Reid never left the field for the defense. Trent McDuffie was one snap shy of playing 100% of the snaps for Kansas City in just his second game back.
Joshua Williams is officially seeing more playing time than Jaylen Watson. Andy Reid mentioned after Week 9 that he intended to rotate them opposite Trent McDuffie in a platoon situation, but Williams saw more snaps this week.
Khalen Saunders saw a slight increase in snaps in Week 10 and recorded a sack for the second consecutive game.
Geron Christian, Chris Lammons, Jack Cochrane, Deon Bush and Ugo Amadi saw special teams-only snaps on Sunday. Leo Chenal led the team with 22 special teams snaps.
