Below are the offensive personnel packages, play counts and participation chart for the Steelers week 3 win against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night. The first thing of note this week is that the Steelers used two tight ends or more on 27 of the 68 non-penalty plays this past week. We also saw the 2 personnel group this week for the first time that featured 3 wide receivers and two tight ends on the field in the form of Heath Miller and Wesyle Saunders. I am curious if this will be used more going forward. The 11 personnel grouping was used on nearly half of the offensive plays this week.
As far as non-penalty snap counts went, Hines Ward led all wide receivers with Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders still neck and neck in play counts. The Mike Wallace snap count might be down to the rib cartilage injury revealed today by Mike Tomlin during his press conference. Miller was the iron man again at tight end with 66 snaps. No surprise there. No other real surprises outside of the snaps that Trai Essex and Ramon Foster received due to the injuries of Marcus Gilbert and Doug Legursky.
