Arizona Cardinals week two offensive snap counts tell the story of defeat

New, comments
NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

One of the keys to the offense that Kliff Kingsbury and the team has espoused since the beginning was getting off a high volume of plays.

In their week two loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Cardinals only ran 60 plays, while the Ravens offense ran 79.

That will constitute an issue each and every week if that is the case.

Onto the snap counts.

Quarterback

Kyler Murray - 60 (100%)

Running Backs

David Johnson 36 (60%)
Chase Edmonds 24 (40%)

Too few carries and touches for Johnson and Edmonds in their limited snaps. Johnson only had eight touches in the game, seven carries and one catch. He was only targeted once. Edmonds had one carry, two catches on two targets.

Wide Receivers

Larry Fitzgerald 57 (95%)
Christian Kirk 56 (93%)
Damiere Byrd 56 (93%)
Michael Crabtree 19 (32%)
KeeSean Johnson 19 (32)
Trent Sherfield 4 (7%)

Byrd seems to be the clear WR3 at this juncture, maybe Crabtree starts to creep in on that, we will see. Sherfield got on the field as a wide receiver this week.

Tight Ends

Charles Clay 15 (25%)
Maxx Williams 14 (23%)

Williams seems to be the better player at this juncture, but it isn’t showing up on the snap counts.

Offensive Line

Justin Murray 60 (100%)
Justin Pugh 60 (100%)
D.J. Humphries 60 (100%)
A.Q. Shipley 60 (100%)
J.R. Sweezy 60 (100%)

No Cole this week, nothing else of note on the offensive line.

What stands out to you?
