Falcons vs. Rams 2016: Snap counts and team dominance

These are so much easier after a win.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta went into Los Angeles on a mission -- a mission of pure destruction and domination. They accomplished that mission, and we all enjoyed that.

Here are the weekly snap counts from our favorite birds.


Chris Chester G: 58 (100%)
Andy Levitre G: 58 
Ryan Schraeder T: 57 
Aldrick Robinson WR: 50 
Matt Ryan QB: 49 
Jake Matthews T: 46 
Alex Mack C: 46 
Taylor Gabriel WR: 45 
Austin Hooper TE: 42 
Justin Hardy WR: 32 
Levine Toilolo TE: 25 
Patrick DiMarco FB: 23 
Devonta Freeman RB: 22 
Tevin Coleman RB: 21 
Ben Garland C: 12 
Terron Ward RB: 12 
Tom Compton T: 12 
Matt Schaub QB: 12 
Nick Williams WR: 7 
Joshua Perkins TE: 5 
Eric Weems WR: 4

As expected, Taylor Gabriel, Aldrick Robinson, and Justin Hardy saw extended action with the absence of Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. The passing game didn't suffer that much, as Matt Ryan comfortably found another 200-yard passing game with three touchdowns through the air.

With the team being so successful at finding the end-zone, players like Tom Compton, Josh Perkins, Ben Garland, and Matt Schaub got in on the fun and allowed the first team to take a breather on the sideline.


Keanu Neal S: 72 (100%)
Ricardo Allen S: 72 
Robert Alford CB: 71 
Deion Jones LB: 59 
Brian Poole CB: 57 
Grady Jarrett DT: 50 
De'Vondre Campbell LB: 47 
Jalen Collins CB: 46 
Dwight Freeney DE: 39 
Vic Beasley LB: 34 
Philip Wheeler LB: 32 
Ra'Shede Hageman DT: 31 
Courtney Upshaw DT: 30 
Deji Olatoye CB: 28 
Jonathan Babineaux DT: 25 
Brooks Reed DE: 24 
Paul Worrilow LB: 24 
Tyson Jackson DE: 17 
Malliciah Goodman DE: 15 
LaRoy Reynolds LB: 13 
Ben Garland C: 5
C.J. Goodwin CB: 1

The Rams do have one of the league's worst offenses, but Atlanta's defense put together one of its most complete performances of the year. Solid coverage combined with Vic Beasley gave a rookie Jared Goff a 54.4 rating in the contest.

Don't let the score fool you. This was practically a shutout, and the defense looked incredibly calm after such a bad stretch over the middle of the season. The 49ers bring with them another great opportunity for this defense to build confidence, and if they can get hot now, they could ride it all the way through the playoffs.
