Snap Counts: Daniel Sorensen Plays Every Defensive Snap in Win Over Eagles

Posted Sep 18, 2017

A look at the playtime percentages for the Chiefs against the Eagles

Offensive Notes

Tight end Travis Kelce played 51 offensive snaps (96 percent) as he hauled in a team-leading eight catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. It was Kelce’s first 100-yard receiving game of the season, and his sixth in his last nine regular season games dating back to last season.

Running back Kareem Hunt played 39 offensive snaps (74 percent), tallying 109 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. Hunt is just the ninth running back since 1950 to record 100-plus yards from scrimmage in each of his first two games, and the first since Ben Tate and Daniel Thomas in 2011.

Wide receiver Chris Conley recorded 46 offensive snaps (87 percent), catching four passes for 55 yards.

Defensive Notes

Defensive tackle Chris Jones played 32 defensive snaps (44 percent), recording four solo tackles, 3.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and his first-career interception. Jones, now in his second year with the Chiefs, is just the second player since 1994 to notch at least 3.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pick in a single game, joining James Harrison (2007).

Safety Daniel Sorensen, filling in for the injured Eric Berry, played all 72 defensive snaps on Sunday. He recorded six solo tackles.

Linebacker Derrick Johnson once again played 100 percent of Kansas City’s defensive snaps (72). Johnson also played every defensive snap last week in the Chiefs’ season-opening win over the New England Patriots. The 13-year veteran tore his Achilles last November, ending his season, but he’s showing no signs of rust so far this season.

Safety Ron Parker, who was listed as questionable entering the game, played all 72 defensive snaps for Kansas City. In addition to Parker, Sorensen and Johnson, cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Terrance Mitchell also played every snap on defense. That makes two straight weeks that Parker and Peters have played every snap.

Special Teams Notes

Running back Akeem Hunt, who was signed to the active roster on Saturday, played 13 snaps on special teams, including a 40-yard kickoff return.
