THINGS TO NOTE:

  • Tom Savage’s passer rating of 149.1 is the highest for a single game of Savage’s career.
  • If D’Onta Foreman’s 63 yard reception had taken place during last season’s regular season, it would have been the Texans’ longest play from the line of scrimmage.
  • This week saw a stark drop in the amount of snaps for RBs, with Akeem Hunt getting no snaps while Tyler Ervin gained snaps since last week’s performance.
  • The defense also saw some notable absences with players who saw heavy action last week unable to garner any plays. Players such as Robert Nelson, Gimel President, and rookie Carlos Watkins all went without a snap.

Anything else about the snap counts stand out to you? Are there any players who aren’t getting as much playing time as you think they should? Are there players who should be getting less? Let us know in the comments below.
