Let's see who played a little and who play a lot.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Against the St. Louis Rams, the Arizona Cardinals offense was on the field a lot. They ran 71 plays and had 74 official snaps. They ran 20 more plays than the Rams. How did the playing time work out for the Cardinals offense?

Let's take a look:

Quarterback: Carson Palmer, 74

This is always good news, especially against the Rams. Palmer played every snap. He didn't have to come out because of injury. However, it would have been nice to blow the Rams out of the water so Palmer could have come out at least for the kneeldowns at the end of the game.

Offensive line: Jared Veldheer, 74; Mike Iupati, 74; Lyle Sendlein, 74; Jonathan Cooper, 74; Bobby Massie, 74; A.Q. Shipley, 1

Shipley got one play as a fullback. There is the one takeaway here.

Running back: Chris Johnson, 38; David Johnson, 36

The playing time was almost equal. Nothing for Stepfan Taylor this week. The younger Johnson played all the snaps of the final two possessions. It was because he is the team's "nickel back" on offense.

Wide receivers: Larry Fitzgerald, 70; John Brown, 68; Michael Floyd, 52; Jaron Brown, 14; Brittan Golden, 1

Golden got the one snap when the offense did a kneeldown to end the first half. Once again we see that Michael Floyd is the team's number three receiver. I just don't see him returning next year for more than $7 million.

Tight ends: Darren Fells, 63; Jermaine Gresham, 22; Troy Niklas, 5

Against the 49ers, the Cardinals did a lot of two and three tight end sets. That was not the case against the Rams, as they were playing from behind the entire game.
