Defensive snaps in Arizona Cardinals loss to Green Bay Packers

The Arizona Cardinals defense did not play badly, sans two drives where they just could not get off the field.

That is why their plays are so much higher, because of the bad series.

Let’s take a look at how the snaps played out.

Jordan Hicks - 73 snaps (100%)
Byron Murphy - 73 (100%)
Isaiah Simmons - 71 (97%)
Marco Wilson - 70 (96%)
Budda Baker - 67 (92%)
Jalen Thompson - 64 (88%)
Chandler Jones - 62 (85%)

The main group of contributors for the Cardinals defense now. This is a good group, but you see what position group is glaringly missing.

Let’s keep looking.

Zach Allen - 57 (78%)
Jordan Phillips - 50 (68%)
Robert Alford - 44 (60%)
Markus Golden - 43 (59%)
Leki Fotu - 37 (51%)
Tanner Vallejo - 29 (40%)
Michael Dogbe - 25 (34%)
Josh Mauro - 17 (23%)
Devon Kennard - 12 (16%)
Dennis Gardeck - 5 (7%)
Zaven Collins - 3 (4%)
Deionte Thompson - 1 (1%)

The defensive line rotation beefed up for some guys and the lack of ability to get off the field consistently is what hurt this team on Thursday night.
