Seahawks snap count vs Dolphins

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Seattle Seahawks Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks beat the Dolphins 12-10 on Sunday and these are their individual snap counts. (The formatting isn’t necessarily my preference, but there’s been some technical changes that SB Nation is still working on involving “List” format. Will work to change it in the future.)

Offense - 82 snaps

Russell Wilson and the entire offensive line — Bradley Sowell, Mark Glowinski, Justin Britt, J’Marcus Webb, Garry Gilliam — played every snap on offense.

The running back split went: Christine Michael 52, Thomas Rawls 22, C.J. Prosise 9, and Tani Tupuo 7.

Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin each played 70 snaps, Tyler Lockett had 62, Paul Richardson had 17, and Tanner McEvoy had 10.

At tight end, Luke Willson had 64 snaps, Jimmy Graham had 17, and Brandon Williams had 10.


  • Michael played about twice as much as Rawls but it wouldn’t surprise me to see them get closer to even next week against the Rams. There’s nothing wrong with keeping either of those players fresh, however. They still might not be sure what to do with Richardson, but I think his moments will be impactful, even if they’re sparse. Graham had more snaps than I expected but most of them probably came in the fourth quarter. Willson was very quiet despite playing most of the game.

Defense - 53 snaps

“The 53 Boys” this week who played every snap were Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, DeShawn Shead, and Bobby Wagner.

The other defensive back, Jeremy Lane, had 43 snaps.

At linebacker, K.J. Wright had 50 snaps, Mike Morgan had only 10, Kevin Pierre-Louis had 3.

On defensive line, Michael Bennett had 47 snaps, Cliff Avril had 44, Jarran Reed had 33, Frank Clark had 29, Ahtyba Rubin had 25, Tony McDaniel had 19, Quentin Jefferson had 9, Cassius Marsh had 6.


  • Look at how important it is in a Pete Carroll defense to keep his defensive linemen fresh. This team has as good as six “starting” defensive linemen and I think Jefferson, Marsh could earn even more playing time on defense.

Special Teams

Marsh and Brock Coyle led the way with 22 special teams snaps. Brandon Williams, KPL, and Kelcie McCray were next with 19 each. Tyvis Powell had 15. Willson, Morgan each had 12. Steven Terrell had 11. Lockett had 10. Sherman, Lane had 9, alongside punting duo Jon Ryan and Nolan Frese. Baldwin, DeAndre Elliott had 7 each. Chancellor, Shead got out there for 6, same as Steven Hauschka. Earl Thomas only got out there for 2 special teams snaps. One other player to make an appearance: George Fant had 3 special teams snaps, which may be the reason he was active on game day if the team needs an extra big body on certain kicking situations.
