Editor’s note: Arrowhead Pride obtains snap count data from the NFL’s game stats and information system, which allows us to break out snap counts by run or pass on offensive and defensive plays. Because GSIS data ignores plays that were nullified by penalties, total offensive and defensive snap counts will vary from other sources, which get their data from NFL Gamebooks

Offensive takeaways

  • TE Travis Kelce played every single snap (58 snaps for 100 percent) on offense for the Chiefs on Sunday night.
  • OL Stefen Wisniewski entered the game for 10 offensive snaps in relief of RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif when he left due to his ankle injury.
  • RB Damien Williams out-snapped RB LeSean McCoy on offense, 25-23. It seemed like the Chiefs played Williams after McCoy’s fumble. He made those fantasy owners still playing him happy with a rushing touchdown.
  • WR Mecole Hardman made the most of his nine snaps — catching two passes (including the shovel) for 55 yards and a touchdown.
