Packers' Week 7 playing-time breakdown

By Rob Demovsky

A look at the snap counts from the Green Bay Packers’ 31-13 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday:

Offense (71 total plays)

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers 71.

Offensive line: David Bakhtiari 71, Don Barclay 71, Evan Dietrich-Smith 71, T.J. Lang 71, Josh Sitton 71, Marshall Newhouse 1

Receivers: Jarrett Boykin 69, Jordy Nelson 66, Myles White 47.

Running backs: Eddie Lacy 59, John Kuhn 18, Johnathan Franklin 6.

Tight ends: Jermichael Finley 44, Andrew Quarless 35, Brandon Bostick 8, Jake Stoneburner 2.

Noteworthy: White replaced Cobb as the primary slot receiver. He ran all but one of his 32 routes from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus, and caught one pass for 9 yards. … Newhouse’s lone snap came as an extra blocker next to Barclay, the right tackle, on Lacy’s 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The play went to the left side, away from Newhouse. … Lacy has played 172 of a possible 206 snaps, or 83.5 percent of the plays, the past three games. In that stretch, he leads the NFL with 301 yards rushing, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Defense (71 total plays)

Defensive line: B.J. Raji 33, Mike Daniels 31, Ryan Pickett 27, Datone Jones 23, Johnny Jolly 27, C.J. Wilson 9, Josh Boyd 7.

Linebackers: A.J. Hawk 70, Andy Mulumba 59, Jamari Lattimore 53, Nate Palmer 46, Mike Neal 35, Sam Barrington 1.

Defensive backs: Morgan Burnett 70, Tramon Williams 70, Sam Shields 70, Davon House 57, M.D. Jennings 47, Chris Banjo 25, Micah Hyde 22, James Nixon 1, Jerron McMillian 1

Others: WR Chris Harper 1, Kuhn 1, Bostick 1, Stoneburner 1.

Noteworthy: The fourth-and-1 direct snap the Browns ran in the first quarter technically counted as a defensive play, according to official NFL snap counts, even though the Packers had their punt return team on the field, which explains why four offensive players -- Harper, Kuhn, Bostick and Stoneburner -- were credited with a defensive snap. Barrington, Nixon and McMillian also were on the field for that play. … Hyde played the dime defensive back the first time after McMillian was benched following a coverage gaffe the previous week against the Baltimore Ravens. … Banjo replaced Jennings at safety for parts of the second half. … Palmer and Mulumba, who both started at the outside linebacker spots, didn’t get much done in the pass rush. They combined for just three hurries in 43 pass-rushing attempts, according to Pro Football Focus. ... Boyd, a rookie fifth-round pick, was active for the first time.

Top special-teams contributors (29 total plays): Stoneburner 25, House 22, Banjo 21, Kuhn 19, Barrington 18, Bostick 18, Nixon 16, Jennings 14, Tim Masthay 14.
