Falcons vs. 49ers 2016: Snap counts and playoff prepping

If only this can happen every weekend until early February.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

It was another calm, yet enjoyable weekend for Falcons fans as the club cruised past the visiting 49ers in a dominant win. If you're looking to see which players helped to fuel that dominant effort--besides by looking at the stats,which were dominated by Devonta Freeman--you'll need the snap counts. 

Here are the numbers.


Chris Chester G: 68 (100%)
Andy Levitre G: 68
Ryan Schraeder T: 68
Jake Matthews T: 61
Matt Ryan QB: 61
Alex Mack C: 61
Aldrick Robinson WR: 55
Mohamed Sanu WR: 46
Levine Toilolo TE: 41
Austin Hooper TE: 40
Tevin Coleman RB: 31
Devonta Freeman RB: 30
Patrick DiMarco FB: 28
Justin Hardy WR: 27
Taylor Gabriel WR: 24
Joshua Perkins TE: 10
Tom Compton T: 7
Ben Garland C: 7
Terron Ward RB: 7
Matt Schaub QB: 7
Eric Weems WR: 1

Even with the return of Mohamed Sanu, Aldrick Robinson saw the majority of snaps on offense with Julio taking another week to rest up from a nagging foot injury. Robinson delivered with his extra opportunities and accounted for 111 yards and 4 completions during Matt Ryan's dominant day.

Freeman and Coleman had a nearly perfect split on their snaps, but it was Devonta who stole the show in Atlanta's rushing attack. The former Seminole finished the day with a seven YPC average and three touchdowns.

For the second week in a row, we had the pleasure watching Schaub, Garland, Ward, and Compton thanks to such a strong lead in the final quarter of play-- it's quite honestly the most beautiful thing in sports.


Brian Poole CB: 55 (100%)
Robert Alford CB: 53
Ricardo Allen S: 53
Deion Jones LB: 53
Keanu Neal S: 52
C.J. Goodwin CB: 39
Vic Beasley LB: 37
Paul Worrilow LB: 36
Brooks Reed DE: 36
Grady Jarrett DT: 33
Courtney Upshaw DT: 25
Ra'Shede Hageman DT: 23
Dwight Freeney DE: 23
Deji Olatoye CB: 20
De'Vondre Campbell LB: 18
Jonathan Babineaux DT: 14
Malliciah Goodman DE: 12
Tyson Jackson DE: 10
Philip Wheeler LB: 6
Sharrod Neasman S: 3
LaRoy Reynolds LB: 2
Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB: 2

With Trufant gone for the year, and Collins just now returning to practice, rookie Brian Poole got the start opposite of Robert Alford and did about as well as you could expect for an undrafted rookie.

Worrilow came off the bench and had a very strong showing as well in wake of Campbell's absence. The veteran linebacker may be seeing the field quite a bit next week depending on the severity of De'Vondre's concussion, which we should hear more about on Wednesday.

Thoughts on this week's counts?
