Thoughts: Obviously the Saints played a lot of snaps overall -- running nearly 50 plays in the second half while trying to catch up. And because the Saints spent so much time in their nickel offense, both Sproles and Moore played a lot more snaps than they have in recent weeks. Conversely, players like Meachem, Ingram and Collins didn't play many snaps since they're normally in run packages. … Harris wound up playing a lot of snaps after replacing Brown in the third quarter. He's built up a decent amount of experience this year if the Saints decide they want to keep him in the starting lineup next week, but that decision remains to be seen. … Colston and Graham battled injuries earlier this year, but clearly they are non-issues now with those snap counts.
Thoughts: Once again, the Saints stuck with their most traditional defensive packages this week -- a mix of nickel/dime packages and 3-4 fronts. There aren't any surprises among the snap counts. It's somewhat interesting that Bunkley played so many more snaps than Jenkins, especially since Bunkley had been battling injuries the last week.
