Cincinnati Bengals: Jumping the Snap Counts

1 of 2

*On offense, the timeshare between BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard continues to be essentially a 50-50 split, and that’s exactly how the Bengals want it. The game-script they’d like to have every week is to give Bernard more touches through the first three quarters, get a lead going into the 4th-quarter, and then let Green-Ellis grind-out the clock.

* Andrew Hawkins had 14 snaps, but would have probably had more had he not injured his hip in the game, and it appears that he’s not only passed Dane Sanzenbacher and Brandon Tate for the fourth-receiver spot, but is also going to challenge Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones for snaps going forward.

*The only other real notable snap count was Andre Smith not getting his typical 100% of right tackle snaps. That was due to him not starting the game for what Marvin Lewis called a “coach’s decision”.
