Snap Counts: Which Chiefs Defenders Were on the Field for the Entire Saints Game?

Here are the playtime percentages for the Chiefs against the Saints


Offensive Notes:

Tight end Travis Kelce led all skill position players in offensive snap percentage for the second week in a row. He played in 47 of 52 snaps for 90 percent.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin only came in for one special teams play—the Saints onside kick, and he made a great play to knock a dangerous ball out of bounds.

The running back snap counts were as follows: Spencer Ware had 36 snaps for 69 percent, Charandrick West had 14 for 27 percent and Jamaal Charles had 2 for 4 percent.

Defensive Notes:

Five Chiefs played 100 percent of the defensive snaps (74) Sunday: Cornerbacks Steve Nelson and Marcus Peters, linebacker Derrick Johnson and safeties Eric Berry and Ron Parker.

S Dan Sorensen, who had both a pick-6 and a sack, played in 43 defensive snaps (58 percent) and still played in 20 special teams snaps (77 percent).

With defensive lineman Allen Bailey and LB Justin March headed to the Injured Reserve list, DL Chris Jones played 38 defensive snaps (51 percent) and LB Ramik Wilson played in 28 defensive snaps (38 percent). With Phillip Gaines inactive, rookie CB D.J. White played in more defensive snaps than he has all year—59 (80 percent).
