Steelers Vs. Dolphins: Player Snap Counts – Wild Card Week

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Miami Dolphins 30-12 at home Sunday to advance to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs and when it comes to the individual player snap counts in that game, there weren’t many things that stood out.

Offensively for the Steelers, tackle Chris Hubbard was used quite a bit against the Dolphins as an extra lineman and occasional tight end. In total, Hubbard played 21 offensive snaps and 9 times he reported as eligible. One of his snaps came at right tackle when starter Marcus Gilbert left briefly.

As expected, Roosevelt Nix played a lot more this time around against the Dolphins. He was on the field for 15 offensive snaps and hard to miss.

While wide receiver Sammie Coates failed to log any offensive snaps against the Dolphins, rookie Demarcus Ayers was on the field for 10 plays. The Steelers dressed all six wide receivers against the Dolphins and that’s not something they’ve done a lot over the years.

Tight end Xavier Grimble only logged two offensive snaps against the Dolphins.

Defensively for the Steelers, defensive end Stephon Tuitt played 57 snaps in his first game back after sitting out the last two with a sprained right knee. Every defensive lineman that dressed Sunday saw at least one snap. With that noted, Johnny Maxey only saw the field for one play.

As expected, James Harrison and Bud Dupree continue to get most of the playing time at outside linebacker as they both played 61 of a possible 65 snaps against the Dolphins.
