The Kansas City Chiefs lost 36-21 to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday and we have the snap counts from the game. Here are a few of my observations along with the full snap count report from the game...

The Chiefs ran 75 offensive plays while the Bengals ran just 54 while scoring 15 more points. Ah, that's frustrating. Really frustrating. The Chiefs moved the ball well but couldn't put it in the end zone.

Chris Conley played a full time role at WR with Albert Wilson out of the game. Conley had two catches and recorded a negative Pro Football Focus score.

More on this later but it would appear that Charcandrick West has overtaken Knile Davis as the No. 2 back.

The Chiefs second and third tight ends continue to split reps. James O'Shaughnessy had 17 snaps to 16 snaps for Demetrius Harris.

Ron Parker played every snap in the game. He was the one who ended up playing in the nickel against the slot receiver.

Sean Smith played almost every snap in his return from suspension. He was out for two snaps.

Josh Mauga went down in the game with an injury and rookie Ramik Wilson took his place with 38 snaps.
