Steelers Offensive And Defensive Snap Counts From Week 8 – Raiders


Below are the snaps counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday 21-18 loss to the Oakland Raiders along with some observations

Being as nose tackles Steve McLendon and Al Woods combined to play 45 snaps, you can clearly see that the Steelers defense were in their base well over 70% of the time. It is even clearer when you see that Cortez Allen only played 14 snaps and Shamarko Thomas played just 11. The Steelers want to be in their sub packages as many plays as possible much as possible.

After sitting out last week against the Baltimore Ravens, linebacker Jarvis Jones only played 10 snaps against the Raiders as Jason Worilds received the lion's share of the snaps at right outside linebacker.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Will Johnson can only help this run game of ours if he’s in there blocking!

    Wow! Hood only 6 snaps!

  • Chad H

    We had to make Oakland one dimensional. That was to stop the run and McLendon playing only 39 snaps on a 3 4 defense as a NT makes a statement that he is not that great.
    I see us finding a NT in the draft and moving him to the DE position.

  • Mike Carroll

    Agree, I think a dominant NT is perhaps the most important need for this team.

  • SteveM2

    Excuse me for not knowing this, but…..what does the sub-title “SPEC” mean?

  • Nolrog

    I believe that’s special teams plays.

  • Nolrog

    Is Jarvis Jones injured? I was surprised to see him play only 10 plays. I thought he was getting more of the play time than Worilds.

  • Nolrog

    Are there any out there? I’d say LT is probably a higher need right now.
