By Mike Rodak

A look at snaps played by Buffalo Bills defensive players, while analyzing how the totals reflect the way players were used (totals provided by the NFL):

LB Kiko Alonso -- 75 of 75
CB Stephon Gilmore -- 75 of 75
CB Leodis McKelvin -- 74 of 75
S Jairus Byrd -- 74 of 75
DE Mario Williams -- 65 of 75
DT Kyle Williams -- 62 of 75
CB Nickell Robey -- 56 of 75
S Aaron Williams -- 55 of 65
LB Manny Lawson -- 50 of 75
DT Alan Branch -- 44 of 75
DT Marcell Dareus -- 44 of 75
S Da'Norris Searcy -- 37 of 75
DL Corbin Bryant -- 36 of 75
OLB Jerry Hughes -- 34 of 75
LB Nigel Bradham -- 14 of 75
DT Stefan Charles -- 14 of 75
S Jim Leonhard -- 10 of 75
LB Ty Powell -- 3 of 75
CB Ron Brooks -- 2 of 75
LB Arthur Moats -- 1 of 75
S Duke Williams -- 0 of 75

ANALYSIS: Alonso's streak stands. The rookie has played in every snap this season and that continued Sunday despite a knee injury limiting him in practice all week. Impressive toughness from the second-round pick. ... Dareus' low snap count can be explained by an ankle injury that was announced in the fourth quarter. His absence led to increased playing time for Bryant. We'll know more about Dareus' status Monday afternoon. ... Hughes played less than half of the total snaps but finished with one sack, two quarterback hits, and a pass defensed. He's been efficient when he's on the field. ... After not playing in any snaps last week, Leonhard played in 10 and made a key fourth-quarter stop at the goal line.
