Steelers Vs. Redskins: Player Snap Counts – Week 1

The Pittsburgh Steelers won their 2016 regular season opener Monday night over the Washington Redskins 38-16 and the snap counts from that game have now been compiled. While there aren’t many surprises included in them, there are a few totals worth pointing out.

For starters, second-year wide receiver Eli Rogers played a whopping 47 snaps Monday night in his NFL debut. This was nearly 70% of the 68 total offensive plays that were run in the game by the Steelers offense so it’s evident now how he’ll likely be used moving forward and likely even when Markus Wheaton returns to full health.

Young tight end Xavier Grimble managed to see the field some in the opener as he logged 16 snaps on offense. He didn’t, however, evidently play any on special teams.

Defensively for the Steelers in their 2016 regular season opener, it’s worth pointing out the snaps played by this years defensive draft picks. Cornerback Artie Burns played 9 snaps as part of the team’s dime package while safety Sean Davis, as expected, saw a lot of playing time and to the tune of 46 snaps. Defensive tackle Javon Hargrave played 13 total defensive snaps against the Redskins while rookie linebacker Tyler Matakevich was limited to only playing on special teams.

Curiously, linebacker L.J. Fort was initially the player who replaced starter Ryan Shazier when he left the game injured. He played 4 total snaps while fellow linebacker Vince Williams played a total of 7 defensive snaps.

We’ll have more stats related to Monday night’s game for you as soon as our game charting is completed.
