Offensive snaps: Score keeps Lawrence Vickers on bench

September, 18, 2012
A look at the snaps played by Cowboys’ offense in the team’s 27-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, while analyzing what it means:

RT Doug Free: 58 of 58
RG Mackenzy Bernadeau: 58 of 58
LG Nate Livings: 58 of 58
LT Tyron Smith: 58 of 58
C Ryan Cook: 58 of 58
QB Tony Romo: 58 of 58
WR Dez Bryant: 52 of 58
TE Jason Witten: 51 of 58
WR Miles Austin: 48 of 58
RB DeMarco Murray: 39 of 58
WR Kevin Ogletree: 38 of 58
TE John Phillips: 21 of 58
FB Lawrence Vickers: 19 of 58
RB Felix Jones: 19 of 58
TE James Hanna: 3 of 58
WR Dwayne Harris: 2 of 58
OL Jeremy Parnell: 1 of 58

The Cowboys fell behind so quickly and found themselves in so many long-yardage situations on second and third down that fullback Lawrence Vickers didn’t play much. ... Felix Jones saw his playing time increase a little, but his production remained shoddy until the final minute of the game. ... The score meant the Cowboys spent much of the game in formations with three and four receivers, which is why Kevin Ogletree played nearly twice as much as tight end John Phillips.
