Snap Counts: Terrance Mitchell Makes Every Snap Count in Career Game

Posted Sep 25, 2017

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

Offensive Notes

Rookie running back Kareem Hunt logged 37 offensive snaps (70 percent), and made the most of each of them. The rookie tailback ran for 172 yards on 17 carries, including a 69-yard touchdown in the closing minutes to put the game away. The score was also significant historically, as Hunt is the first player in NFL history with a score of at least 50-plus yards in each of his first three NFL games.

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill recorded 39 offensive snaps (74 percent), hauling in a team-high five catches for 77 yards and a touchdown.

Tight end Travis Kelce played every offensive snap (53), tallying one catch.

Center Zach Fulton played all 53 snaps on Sunday filling in for the injured Mitch Morse.

Defensive Notes

Defensive back Terrance Mitchell played all 73 defensive snaps on Sunday, notching two interceptions, four passes defensed and nine tackles – all career highs. Mitchell is just the fifth player since 1994 to record at least two picks, four passes defensed and nine solo tackles in a game, and just the second since 2007.

Linebacker Justin Houston recorded 65 defensive snaps (89 percent), tallying six tackles (4.0 solo) and a sack. Houston’s 4.0 sacks are tied for third in the NFL.

Safety Daniel Sorensen played 71 defensive snaps (97 percent) on Sunday, recording eight tackles (6.0 solo). Sorensen has played 143 of 145 possible snaps (99 percent) over the past two weeks.

Safety Ron Parker played every defensive snap for the third-straight week. Parker recorded two tackles (1.0 solo).
