Steelers Offensive & Defensive Snap Counts: Week 11 Ravens

Below are the initial week 11 offensive and defensive snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 13-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night at Heinz Field.

The thing that sticks out the most in the preliminary look at the offense is that running back Chris Rainey only received two snaps in this game that featured the Steelers facing 17 third down situations. Rainey very well could still be bothered by the rib injury suffered a few weeks ago against the New York Giants, but he was healthy enough to return kickoffs Sunday night just the same. While I am not suggesting that he should have played more than 10 snaps, you would figure that offensive coordinator Todd Haley could have devised a few more ways to get him on the field. Wide receiver David Gilreath also saw limited action on offense for the first time since being promoted to the active roster and he even received a carry on an end around on the second play from scrimmage.

On defense, second year defensive end Cameron Heyward saw his first extensive action of the season after starter Ziggy Hood left the game with a back injury. Safety Ryan Mundy also saw limited action in place of both Will Allen and Ryan Clark in the game. Cornerback Curtis Brown also saw just 1 snap in the game on defense as the Steelers had no need to use their dime in the game.

We will have the participation reports out later on in the week.

    How did C. Heyward do now that he got more playing time? Been waiting to see how he would do if given some decent playing time!

    Nice to see the o-line play the entire game yet again!!

    Agreed on both fronts – I didn’t see much of the 2nd half but I’m interested to hear how Heyward looked. I certainly would never wish an injury on Ziggy – but if he’s banged up, I wouldn’t mind seeing them take this opportunity to start Heyward for 1 week and give Ziggy the chance to heal fully and see what Heyward can do in the meantime.
    Definitely nice to see the O-Line hanging tough with how thin it is right now. Now, I’d really like to get Gilbert back so we don’t have to worry about Beachum being the “next man up” at tackle, and I’m hoping DeCastro starts practicing soon too.

    Great stuff- could you break this down by position in the future? Thanks!
