Despite being without their starting quarterback and right tackle, the Colts offense had arguably its best game of the season. It posted a season-high 38 points and 456 total yards.
Here’s a look at the snap counts on offense, defense and special teams from the Week 7 loss, followed by our analysis below:
Special Teams: 40
Rookie TE Will Mallory (13%) also factored in with Garanson out but played the fewest snaps on the offense.
The snap share for DT DeForest Buckner (92%) is the highest he’s seen since Week 11 of the 2020 season and is tied for the highest of his tenure with the Colts.
With Grover Stewart out, the Colts rotated far more on the interior, including a bump for Eric Johnson II (43%), who saw a career-high in snaps before an ankle injury removed him from the game.
CB Julius Brents suffered a quad injury, leading to fellow rookie Jaylon Jones (87%) posting a career-high in snaps. Also, Darell Baker Jr. (60%) filled in.
This is the second week in a row that Shaquille Leonard (70%) has had a firm grip on the No. 2 linebacker role.
CB Tony Brown (78%) and LB Segun Olubi (78%) led the way on special teams.
