FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A look at snaps played by offensive skill-position players in the Patriots' 38-7 win over the Dolphins in the season finale:

TE Rob Gronkowski -- 75 of 75
WR Julian Edelman -- 59 of 75
WR Brandon Tate -- 51 of 75
TE Alge Crumpler -- 50 of 75
RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis -- 41 of 75
QB Brian Hoyer -- 41 of 75
FB/RB Sammy Morris -- 36 of 75
QB Tom Brady -- 34 of 75
WR Taylor Price -- 26 of 75
WR Matthew Slater -- 13 of 75
RB Fred Taylor -- 13 of 75
RB Thomas Clayton -- 8 of 75
RB Danny Woodhead -- 3 of 75

(Snaps include illegal use of hands penalty and offensive holding penalty.)

ANALYSIS: With tight end Aaron Hernandez inactive because of a hip injury, it left Rob Gronkowski and Alge Crumpler as the only tight ends. Gronkowski was part of every personnel grouping the Patriots used in the game. ... Julian Edelman mostly assumed the role that Wes Welker would have played if active, lining up in one-, two- and three-receiver sets. ... Receiver Taylor Price's snaps were split evenly -- 13 in the first half, 13 in the second half. ... Sammy Morris' 36 snaps easily mark a season-high. His previous high was 13, against the Bills in Week 3.
