An analysis of the snap counts from the Green Bay Packers’ 23-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s NFC wild-card playoff game at Lambeau Field:
Offense (63 total plays)
Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers 63.
Noteworthy: Bakhtiari had all kinds of trouble blocking outside linebacker Aldon Smith before he leaving in the fourth quarter because of a concussion and giving way to Newhouse. ... Cobb played more snaps than he did a week earlier in his return against the Bears but was targeted only two times. He caught both of them for a total of 51 yards. ... Lacy seemed to tire in the second half, when Starks got more playing time. Starks finished off a productive season as a backup by averaging 5.8 yards on five carries. ... The Packers got almost no production from their tight ends in the passing game. Quarless had one catch for 8 yards. That was the only target for a tight end.
Defense (64 total plays)
Noteworthy: Injuries to Neal (knee, did not return) and Mulumba (who did return) forced Datone Jones to take his first snaps of the season at outside linebacker. Perry saw his most snaps of the season, two more than in his previous high from Week 1 against the 49ers. ... Defensive coordinator Dom Capers used a heavy dose of his base defense with three linemen, including more than usual with Raji in the middle of the three. ... House, who played only four snaps on defense in the previous three games, was pressed into action in the base defense after Shields’ knee injury on the opening series.
