The Arizona Cardinals had quite the easy time in Nashville in their convincing 38-13 win over the Tennessee Titans.
The most surprising thing is that they only ran 69 offensive plays, while the Titans ran 64. The Cardinals offense was incredibly efficient and took advantage when the defense gave them the opportunity.
Let’s take a look at the snap counts for the offense.
Kyler Murray - 69 snaps (100%)
D.J.Humprhies - 69 snaps (100%)
Rodney Hudson - 69 snaps (100%)
The only three players to be in on every offensive snap.
Justin Pugh - 66 (96%)
DeAndre Hopkins - 61 (88%)
Josh Jones - 56 (81%)
Maxx Williams - 55 (80%)
A.J. Green - 55 (80%)
Pugh must have been banged up for a couple of players, but the interesting one is Josh Jones. Despite playing right guard, he was not in for all the snaps, but he was in for a large portion. Green’s snaps are surprising because he was quiet, but that play where he stepped out of bounds on the catch was a miscue on his part that took what would have been a three reception 45ish yard day to a two catch 25 yards day.
That miscue changes how you look at his overall day quite a bit.
Kelvin Beachum - 41 (59%)
Chase Edmonds - 40 (58%)
Christian Kirk - 39 (57%)
James Conner - 34 (49%)
Justin Murray - 32 (46%)
Demetrius Harris - 23 (33%)
Rondale Moore - 20 (29%)
Darrell Daniels - 15 (22%)
Brian Winters - 13 (19%)
J.J. Watt - 1 (1%)
Leki Fotu - 1 (1%)
I had no idea Kirk and Moore played so little, which makes their respective impact even more impressive.
