Patriots-Chiefs snap counts: Dontari Poe, the fullback

The snap counts from Chiefs players vs. the Patriots on Monday Night Football.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Turns out, making these snap counts tables is a LOT more fun after the Kansas City Chiefs win, which they did on Monday Night Football against the New England Patriots, 41-14.

Dontari Poe lined up at fullback on one play, which means he has snap counts for both offense and defense. His one play was well worth it as he smashed into Vince Wilfork for a block. Watch the play in action and watch those two big bodies collide.

Travis Kelce played in 52 percent of the Chiefs snaps on Monday night. Here's how that compares to what he's played previously:

Week 1: 18 snaps
Week 2: 32 snaps
Week 3: 47 snaps
Week 4: 35 snaps

The Chiefs could STILL stand to use Kelce more. He had eight catches for 93 yards and a touchdown on the night. The guy is the Chiefs second best playmaker on the team behind Jamaal Charles. I am having so much fun watching him. Here's to hoping there are high snap counts for him down the road.

Let's get to the rest of the snap counts.


Position Player Snaps
C Rodney Hudson 67
G Zach Fulton 67
G Mike McGlynn 67
OT Ryan Harris 67
OT Eric Fisher 67
QB Alex Smith 67
TE Anthony Fasano 60
WR Dwayne Bowe 53
WR Donnie Avery 40
RB Jamaal Charles 36
TE Travis Kelce 35
RB Knile Davis 29
WR Junior Hemingway 28
FB Anthony Sherman 26
WR AJ Jenkins 11
TE Demetrius Harris 10
WR Frankie Hammond 4
RB Cyrus Gray 2
FB Dontari Poe 1

  • Jamaal Charles came out of the game briefly to get an IV, which is why you saw more Knile Davis. Or you saw Knile Because Knile is really good in his own right.
  • Speaking of Knile, he touched the ball 17 times in his 29 snaps, and picked up 119 yards. Not bad at all.
  • Demetrius Harris, the third tight end, was in on 10 snaps. The Chiefs were throwing out of this 3-TE formation this week.


Position Player Snaps
CB Sean Smith 50
CB Marcus Cooper 50
LB Josh Mauga 50
LB Justin Houston 50
S Husain Abdullah 50
S Ron Parker 50
DE Allen Bailey 45
DT Dontari Poe 43
LB Tamba Hali 41
CB Chris Owens 34
S Kurt Coleman 24
DE Jaye Howard 22
LB James-Michael Johnson 16
LB Josh Martin 9
DE Vance Walker 6
DT Kevin Vickerson 6
LB Dee Ford 4

  • Eric Berry did not play in this game.
  • Tamba Hali continues to get some rest. He took nine snaps off, replaced by Josh Martin. The Chiefs have listed Hali as limited in practice the last few weeks so he's dealing with some knee and ankle injuries.
  • Only four snaps for Dee Ford. I was wondering about this when I saw him in the locker room after the game without any sweat.
  • I like Kevin Vickerson as a run blocker but you can't get many snaps when you're not all that versatile.
  • Nickelback (not the band) Chris Owens was in on 34 snaps, which are usually passing downs.
  • James-Michael Johnson, who was featured on the TV guide description, had just 16 snaps.
  • The Chiefs starting secondary played every snap.
