With the Denver Broncos first team offense playing a grand total of seven snaps and Von Miller not playing at all, many of the guys who are second though fourth string saw plenty of action on Saturday.

Elijah Wilkinson got a lot of work at offensive tackle. I’m not sure what that means other than the coaching staff obviously wanted to see him play this past game. On the other end of the spectrum Andy Janovich only got two offensive snaps, so if they were using a fullback with the second team offense, it was not him.

Now on to the defensive data:

Will Parks played a great deal for a guy who was a de facto starter for part of the year in 2017 (when we went to heavy nickel). Josey Jewell also so a lot of action along with fellow (highly-targetted) rookie Isaac Yiadom. I’m a little surprised at how few snaps Shane Ray got, but I guess he was the starting OLB on one side with Von Miller sitting for the whole game.

What if anything surprised you about this snap data? Sound off in the comments.
