The Seattle Seahawks got healthy and then went into Buffalo and got beaten soundly, leaving New York with a 44-34 loss that was not reflective of the Bills’ dominance. Over the course of four quarters, different Seahawks debuted, returned, and were benched, as Seattle stumbled through a hideous outing. The full snap counts below, then some notes.
- It was Jacob Hollister who paced the tight ends on Sunday, as the Seahawks went pass heavy in an attempt to catch up. Hollister saw 48% of snaps, with Greg Olsen (40%) and Will Dissly (32%) behind.
- A brief injury and a return for Travis Homer ate into DeeJay Dallas’s audition as the lead back, with the rookie playing just 31% of snaps, behind Homer’s 48% and ahead of Alex Collins, who saw 20%.
- Jamal Adams played every snap in his return and made his impact felt, despite the defense’s struggles. Though clearly hobbled, Adams popped up everywhere and tried to rally a lifeless defense on the sideline. If Seattle’s defense is to turn it around, Adams will be at the heart of it—on and off the field.
- Quinton Dunbar played 79% of the defense’s snaps while clearly not anywhere close to healthy and eventually, mercifully, was benched, with Linden Stephens playing 22% of snaps in his place.
- Carlos Dunlap turned in an encouraging debut, playing 68% of defensive snaps and making a number of splash plays for a sack-happy defensive line.
- Finally, Rasheem Green returned from a neck injury and was able to play 37% of snaps. Though he didn’t get in on any of the sacks, Green did force a holding penalty and created a pressure on back-to-back plays.
