Offensive snaps: Lance Dunbar moves past Phillip Tanner

By Jean-Jacques Taylor

A look at the snaps played by Cowboys’ offensive players in the team’s 19-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, while analyzing what it means:

RG Mackenzy Bernadeau: 57 of 57
LT Tyron Smith: 57 of 57
LG Nate Livings: 57 of 57
QB Tony Romo: 57 of 57
RT Doug Free: 57 of 57
TE Jason Witten: 57 of 57
WR Miles Austin: 53of 57
WR Dez Bryant: 47 of 57
RB Felix Jones: 34 of 57
WR Kevin Ogletree: 21 of 57
FB Lawrence Vickers: 18 of 57
TE John Phillips: 16 of 57
WR Dwayne Harris: 15 of 57
TE James Hanna: 6 of 57
RB Phillip Tanner: 2 of 57
OL Jeremy Parnell: 2 of 57
WR Cole Beasley: 2 of 57

Taylor's Take: Make of this what you will, Lance Dunbar played a season-high 12 plays and finished the game with eight carries for 26 yards. Clearly, the rookie undrafted free agent has moved ahead of Phillip Tanner, who was used in short-yardage situations. ... Felix Jones, nursing a sore knee, will probably be ready for a full load this week unless Dunbar impressed the coaching staff. ... Kevin Ogletree participated in the fewest amount of plays for him this season, but contributed 96 yards receiving. Dwayne Harris took some of Ogletree’s playing time because the Ogletree was limited in practice last week. ... John Phillips, who has struggled as a blocker this season, saw his playing time cut in half as rookie James Hanna played a little.
