Here are the Baltimore Ravens' snap counts against the Minnesota Vikings:

OFFENSE (Based on 85 snaps)

Quarterback: Joe Flacco 85.

Running backs: Ray Rice 61, Bernard Pierce 24, Vonta Leach 12.

Wide receivers: Torrey Smith 80, Jacoby Jones 78, Marlon Brown 65, Brandon Stokley 8.

Tight ends: Ed Dickson 49, Dennis Pitta 36.

Offensive line: Marshal Yanda 85, Eugene Monroe 85, Michael Oher 85, A.Q. Shipley 85, Gino Gradkowski 85, Rick Wagner 7, Jah Reid 5.

Offensive analysis: While Marlon Brown put up the bigger numbers, Jacoby Jones was the No. 2 receiver based on snaps. He lined up on offense for 92 percent of the snaps ... The Ravens stuck with Ray Rice because he had the hot hand; he played 72 percent of the snaps … Dennis Pitta was on the field for 42 percent of the plays, a surprising number given he hadn't played in a game since the Super Bowl. … Tandon Doss, who once had the second-most snaps as a receiver in a game this season, played three snaps Sunday -- all on special teams. His drops have cost him playing time.

DEFENSE (Based on 66 snaps)

Defensive line: Haloti Ngata 50, Arthur Jones 38, Chris Canty 36, Terrence Cody 18, DeAngelo Tyson 13.

Linebackers: Daryl Smith 66, Courtney Upshaw 60, Terrell Suggs 59, Jameel McClain 37, Pernell McPhee 20, Josh Bynes 16, Arthur Brown 11, Albert McClellan 5, John Simon 4.

Secondary: James Ihedigbo 66, Matt Elam 66, Jimmy Smith 65, Lardarius Webb 63, Corey Graham 32, Chykie Brown 1.

Defensive analysis: A week after getting reduced snaps, Jameel McClain had the second-most snaps at inside linebacker. He played 56 percent of the snaps Sunday, and Josh Bynes was on the field for 24 percent of them. … Courtney Upshaw, who didn't have to split playing time with injured Elvis Dumervil, played 60 snaps, one more than Terrell Suggs. … Rookie John Simon received a handful of snaps on defense for the first time in his career.
