How was that playing time divvied up? It went more or less as you would expect in many ways.
Receiver Larry Fitzgerald was on for 57 of the 58 snaps and receiver Michael Floyd was in for 55.
The running backs were mostly evenly split in playing time. Andre Ellington got the most at 27, Rashard Mendenhall had 23 snaps, Alfonso Smith 18 and Stepfan Taylor had only one snap. That play was a catch for two yards on third down when the team needed three.
Tacke Nate Potter saw two plays -- when she was brought in as an extra tight end.
Is the playing time as you would have expected it? The only things that seem like a surprise was Ellington playing more than Mendenhall and the fact that Jefferson didn't play more.
