Offensive snaps: Woods on top, again

By Mike Rodak

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- A look at snaps played by Buffalo Bills skill-position players in Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens, while analyzing how the totals reflect the way players were utilized (totals provided by the NFL):

QB EJ Manuel -- 84 of 84
WR Robert Woods -- 80 of 84
WR Steve Johnson -- 69 of 84
TE Lee Smith -- 67 of 84
TE Scott Chandler -- 52 of 84
FB Frank Summers -- 42 of 84
RB Fred Jackson -- 41 of 84
RB C.J. Spiller -- 31 of 84
WR T.J. Graham -- 22 of 84
RB Tashard Choice -- 12 of 84
WR Chris Hogan -- 3 of 84
WR Marcus Easley -- 1 of 84
TE Chris Gragg -- 0 of 84

ANALYSIS: Woods played more snaps than Johnson for the second straight week. The rookie was on the field for every offensive snap last week against the Jets and played 95 percent of snaps on Sunday. Unlike last week, when he snagged only two of his 10 targets, Woods led the team with four catches (on eight targets) for 80 yards and a touchdown. Johnson had one catch (on six targets) for minus-1 yard. ... Lee Smith and Frank Summers both set season-highs for snaps, part of a heavier offensive look from the Bills. Smith earning more time than Chandler may have been a product of his blocking ability, with Buffalo accounting for the Ravens' explosive edge rushers. ... Choice's 12 snaps were also a season high, as he stepped in for Jackson and Spiller following their injuries in the second half. ... Right guard Kraig Urbik was replaced by Sam Young for four snaps after injuring his knee, the same amount of plays he missed against the Jets.
