OFFENSE (Based on 76 snaps)
Analysis: For one of the few times this season, Rice didn't get the most playing time at running back. Pierce played three more snaps, a sign that Rice isn't at full strength. He missed a day of practice with a thigh injury was listed as questionable for the game. … Flacco played the game's first 68 snaps with a sprained left knee before giving way to Taylor in the final two minutes. … Pitta has played at least 29 snaps in three games since returning from a hip injury. … Smith, Jones and Brown nearly all had the same amount of playing time. …. TE Dallas Clark didn't play for the third straight week. He has been inactive twice and didn't play a snap in last week's game.
DEFENSE (Based on 67 snaps)
Analysis: McClain's playing time continues to increase throughout the season. It's not much of a platoon system anymore at weakside linebacker. Brown played 11 snaps in passing situations and one-time starter Bynes received two snaps on defense. … Daryl Smith, one of the ironmen on defense, missed three plays because of an Achilles injury but he finished the game. … Suggs once again played less than 80 percent of the snaps. I spotted him on the sideline on one third down, which is unusual. … Ngata has played 50 or more snaps in two straight games.
