Here’s a look at the Detroit Lions’ Week 10 snap counts from their Sunday game against the Chicago Bears.

Offense:

Quarterbacks

Jeff Driskel: 83 (100%)

Running backs

J.D. McKissic: 58 (70%) — 2 special teams snaps (7%)
Paul Perkins: 15 (18%) — 16 (53%)
Ty Johnson: 12 (14%)
Nick Bawden: 11 (13%) — 22 (73%)

Tight ends

T.J. Hockenson: 48 (58%)
Jesse James: 28 (34%) — 6 (20%)
Logan Thomas: 18 (22%) — 22 (73%)

Wide receivers

Kenny Golladay: 78 (94%)
Marvin Jones Jr.: 76 (92%)
Danny Amendola: 56 (67%)
Marvin Hall: 11 (13%)

Offensive tackles

Taylor Decker: 83 (100%) — 3 (10%)
Tyrell Crosby: 56 (67%) — 3 (10%)
Rick Wagner: 28 (34%) — 1 (3%)

Guards/centers

Frank Ragnow: 83 (100%) — 3 (10%)
Graham Glasgow: 79 (95%)
Joe Dahl: 75 (90%) — 2 (7%)
Kenny Wiggins: 15 (18%) — 6 (20%)
Oday Aboushi: 0 (0%) — 3 (10%)

Observations:

  • J.D. McKissic saw a huge bump in playing time, though that was likely due to the early injury to Ty Johnson—who saw the majority of running back snaps in the first quarter. McKissic’s 58 offensive snaps is a career high.
  • The offensive line rotation between Joe Dahl, Graham Glasgow and Kenny Wiggins diminished this week. 15 snaps for Wiggins was the fewest he’s seen all year, and considering Detroit played a whopping 83 offensive snaps, that’s saying something.

Defense:

Defensive end

Trey Flowers: 50 (88%) — 4 (13%)

Defensive tackle

A’Shawn Robinson: 29 (51%)
Damon Harrison Sr.: 25 (44%)
Mike Daniels: 21 (37%)
John Atkins: 20 (35%) — 2 (7%)

Linebackers

Jarrad Davis: 44 (77%) — 4 (13%)
Christian Jones: 41 (72%) — 11 (37%)
Devon Kennard: 39 (68%) — 4 (13%)
Jahlani Tavai: 38 (67%) — 5 (17%)
Jalen Reeves-Maybin: 0 (0%) — 23 (77%)
Steve Longa: 0 (0%) — 23 (77%)

Cornerbacks

Rashaan Melvin: 57 (100%)
Darius Slay: 55 (96%)
Justin Coleman: 46 (81%) — 5 (17%)
Mike Ford: 15 (26%) — 20 (67%)
Dee Virgin: 0 (0%) — 26 (87%)
Jamal Agnew: 0 (0%) — 17 (57%)
Amani Oruwariye: 0 (0%) — 9 (30%)

Safety

Will Harris: 57 (100%) — 19 (63%)
Tavon Wilson: 56 (98%) — 9 (30%)
C.J. Moore: 22 (39%) — 27 (90%)

Observations:

  • With the Lions beat up on the edges (no Romeo Okwara or Da’Shawn Hand, who occasionally plays on the edge), the Lions went heavy on linebackers, often utilizing Christian Jones as an edge defender. Jones, Jarrad Davis, Jahlani Tavai and Devon Kennard all played over 67 percent of snaps.
  • Meanwhile, Trey Flowers saw his highest percentage of snaps on the year. Prior to this game, his season-high was 73.5 percent of snaps played. Against the Bears, he was up to 88 percent.
  • On the other end of the spectrum, Jarrad Davis’ playtime was cut into a bit. We occasionally saw Jahlani Tavai at the MIKE position, and as a result, Davis’ 77 percent play rate is the lowest since his rookie season. Oddly enough, this was his best game of the season according to PFF.
  • Will Harris was a busy man on Sunday. For the second straight week, he didn’t leave the field on defense, and he added another 19 special teams snaps on top of that.

Special teams

Don Muhlbach: 10 (33%)
Sam Martin: 10 (33%)
Matt Prater: 7 (10%)
