The Kansas City Chiefs improved to 11-2 by defeating the Baltimore Ravens, 27-24, on Sunday.

Here were the snap counts for the Chiefs:



Special teams (only)

Starters (offense): WR Tyreek Hill, LT Eric Fisher, LG Cam Erving, C Mitch Morse, RG Andrew Wylie, RT Mitch Schwartz, TE Travis Kelce, TE Demetrius Harris, WR Chris Conley, QB Patrick Mahomes, RB Spencer Ware

Starters (defense): LDE Allen Bailey, NT Derrick Nnadi, LOLB Dee Ford, LILB Anthony Hitchens, RILB Reggie Ragland, ROLB Justin Houston, LCB Orlando Scandrick, RCB Steve Nelson, CB Kendall Fuller, S Daniel Sorensen, S Ron Parker

Active, but did not play: QB Chad Henne

Inactive: WR Sammy Watkins, S Eric Berry, RB Charcandrick West, G Kahlil McKenzie, C Jimmy Murray, WR Kelvin Benjamin, TE Deon Yelder

Takeaways (in no particular order)

  • When LG Cam Erving (28 offensive snaps) had to leave the game with a knee injury, OL Jeff Allen (58 offensive snaps) took his place.
  • TE Travis Kelce and WR Chris Conley (85 offensive snaps) each only missed one play on offense.
  • RB Damien Williams actually out-snapped Spencer Ware at the running back position, 43-41. Ware had to leave the game for a brief time due to a shoulder injury, but the RB position still had the committee feel on Sunday.
  • WR Demarcus Robinson had good production despite limited time on the field (56 offensive snaps). Robinson had five catches for 42 yards in the game on seven targets.
  • The four iron men on defense (71 defensive snaps for 100 percent) were S Daniel Sorensen, CB Kendall Fuller, CB Steve Nelson and S Ron Parker.
  • OLBs Justin Houston and Dee Ford had an equal number of defensive snaps (66). Tanoh Kpassagnon out-snapped Breeland Speaks, 8-5. That has not happened since Week 4.
  • DL Justin Hamilton saw 13 defensive snaps in his debut with Jarvis Jenkins released.
  • ILB Reggie Ragland out-snapped Dorian O’Daniel, 50-12.
  • Special-teams standouts for Sunday (18 or more special-teams snaps): TE Demetrius Harris (25), FB Anthony Sherman (22), Frank Zombo (22), CB Charvarius Ward (22), WR Marcus Kemp (18), LB Dorian O’ Daniel (18)
