Below are the initial week 13 offensive and defensive snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens Sunday.
Despite head coach Mike Tomlin saying that wide receiver Plaxico Burress might be more involved in the offense this week, he only played 1 snap. He wouldn\’t have even got that had Mike Wallace not gotten dinged late in the game. Running back Chris Rainey also saw the field for a just a few plays as well as both Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman received the predominant amount of snaps at the running back back position.
Defensively there weren\’t any surprises. Of course both Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown saw extensive playing time due to Ike Taylor going down early in the game with an ankle injury. Brown only came in on nickel situations. Troy Polamalu played 50 snaps in his first game back from his calf injury that had him sidelined several weeks. This was not surprising as Dick LeBeau hinted that he might not play every snap until he is back in football condition.
We will have the participation reports out later on in the week.
