Cincinnati Bengals: Jumping the Snap Counts

1 of 2

*On offense, the timeshare between BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard continues to trend more in favor of the rookie, and that’s exactly how the Bengals want it. The game-script continues to be giving 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.

*Kevin Zeitler returned Sunday after missing the previous two games due to a foot injury, but he didn’t start on Sunday, paving the way for Mike Pollak to get every snap, and it will be interesting to see if Zeitler gets his starting job back this week.

* Andrew Hawkins had 19 snaps as he’s clearly passed Dane Sanzenbacher and Brandon Tate for the fourth-receiver spot. As many snaps as Sanu is getting, one would think the Bengals would make it more of a point to get him more involved in the offense.
