In their worst game of the season and one of the worst games of Russell Wilson’s career, the Seahawks fell to the Giants 17-12. Seattle’s loss featured a rotating door at right tackle and unconvincing protection across the line.
That and more in the team’s snap counts, below.
- In his second game back from a foot injury, Chris Carson returned to leading the backfield, out-snapping Carlos Hyde 58% to 25% of the offense’s snaps, with DeeJay Dallas seeing 17%. Pete Carroll did say after the game, however, that Carson was still not fully healthy.
- In the team’s second game without Greg Olsen, it was an even split between Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister, with both playing 54% of snaps on offense.
- With the Seahawks playing predominantly base defense on Sunday against Colt McCoy, Jordyn Brooks saw a huge uptick in snaps, playing 77% on defense. Ugo Amadi, meanwhile, came in at just 23%, reflective of the small number of snaps in nickel the defense played.
- Jarran Reed continues to play far too much, finishing at 79% on Sunday. Reed is just too important to the pass rush to have him playing 80% of snaps regularly and he has to be rotated out more often on early downs, despite how skilled of a run defender he is.
- Finally Carlos Dunlap, who came into the game questionable with a foot injury, was largely restricted to a situational role and played just 41% of snaps on defense. Benson Mayowa, who started in his place, played 57%.
