Week 13 defensive snap counts in Arizona Cardinals loss to Los Angeles Rams

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals defense held up in the first half, but the second half was a different story.

Some of that had to do with snaps played, some if just is the fact they lack the depth to keep up.

Let’s take a look at the defensive snap count from Sunday’s loss to the Rams.

Defensive Line

Angelo Blackson - 47 (57%)
Trevon Coley - 41 (50%)
Domata Peko - 39 (48%)
Leki Fotu - 39 (48%)
Zach Allen - 36 (44%)

Edge

Haason Reddick - 72 (88%)
Markus Golden - 63 (77%)
Devon Kennard - 24 (29%)
Kylie Fitts - 5 (6%)
Dennis Gardeck - 3 (4%)

Off Ball

Jordan Hicks - 81 (99%)
De’Vondre Campbell - 70 (85%)
Isaiah Simmons - 32 (39%)

Cornerback

Patrick Peterson - 82 (100%)
Dre Kirkpatrick - 65 (79%)
Byron Murphy - 32 (39%)
Johnathan Joseph - 13 (16%)

Safety

Budda Baker - 79 (96%)
Chris Banjo - 78 (95%)
Deionte Thompson - 1 (1%)

I don’t understand how this team’s highest snap count defensive linemen were not even on the roster until after training camp.

I think I see the issues this defense has.
