New, comments

Who got more playing time? Who got less?

NFL: Denver Broncos at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Again this is mostly going to be devoid of prose.

The game-day inactives for the the first five games:

game 1 QB 9 K.Hogan WR 16 I.McKenzie CB 41 I.Yiadom LB 45 A.Johnson DE 57 D.Walker T 68 E.Wilkinson G 70 S.Jones
game 2 QB 9 K.Hogan DB 38 S.Thomas CB 41 I.Yiadom LB 45 A.Johnson DE 57 D.Walker T 68 E.Wilkinson G 70 S.Jones
game 3 QB 9 K.Hogan CB 24 A.Jones S 35 Dy.Thomas LB 45 A.Johnson DE 57 D.Walker T 68 E.Wilkinson G 70 S.Jones
game 4 QB 9 K.Hogan CB 22 T.Brock DB 38 S.Thomas LB 45 A.Johnson DE 57 D.Walker T 68 E.Wilkinson G 70 S.Jones
game 5 QB 9 K.Hogan CB 22 T.Brock DB 38 S.Thomas LB 45 A.Johnson DE 57 D.Walker T 66 J.Veldheer G 70 S.Jones

Below is the updated offensive snap percentage table:

Player Game 1 Game 2 Game 3 Game 4 Game 5
Connor McGovern 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
Matt Paradis 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
Jared Veldheer 100% 48% 100% 27% 0%
Garett Bolles 100% 100% 100% 100% 84%
Ronald Leary 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
Case Keenum 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
Emmanuel Sanders 86% 82% 88% 90% 95%
Jeff Heuerman 81% 62% 60% 88% 69%
Demaryius Thomas 72% 89% 79% 85% 61%
Courtland Sutton 59% 82% 78% 70% 77%
Jake Butt 49% 39% 51% 0% 0%
Royce Freeman 39% 24% 43% 27% 39%
Phillip Lindsay 35% 42% 16% 40% 38%
Devontae Booker 26% 33% 38% 33% 29%
DaeSean Hamilton 19% 18% 22% 10% 42%
Andy Janovich 18% 17% 19% 28% 13%
Tim Patrick 12% 6% 3% 3% 8%
Billy Turner 3% 53% 0% 73% 100%
Matt LaCosse 1% 3% 1% 25% 25%
Brian Parker 0% 0% 0% 0% 6%

With Jake Butt done for the year with another ACL tear, Matt LaCosse saw significant playing time for the second straight week, and Brian Parker even got a few snaps.

With Jared Veldheer out, Elijah Wilkinson was not only active, but needed. He got in 12 offensive snaps at the end of the game when Garett Bolles hurt his ankle.

Emmanuel Sanders played nearly every offensive snap last game while Demaryius Thomas was only on the field for 61 percent of the offensive snaps (47/77).

Royce Freeman, despite once again having a high yards-per-carry average (6.2), touched the ball just five times on his 30 snaps. He had been getting the ball an average of 50 percent of the time he was on the field through the first four games, but in Week 5, that dropped to 17 percent. Go figure.

Below are the defensive snaps for the year so far:

Player Game 1 Game 2 Game 3 Game 4 Game 5
Justin Simmons 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
Chris Harris 100% 97% 99% 96% 100%
Darian Stewart 100% 97% 88% 100% 92%
Bradley Roby 95% 89% 78% 96% 74%
Bradley Chubb 95% 74% 69% 73% 68%
Von Miller 88% 77% 68% 68% 74%
Brandon Marshall 88% 80% 46% 73% 84%
Derek Wolfe 82% 74% 68% 63% 73%
Adam Jones 67% 31% 0% 68% 15%
Todd Davis 65% 88% 72% 77% 63%
Domata Peko 44% 52% 49% 46% 61%
Will Parks 40% 22% 51% 22% 40%
Adam Gotsis 37% 43% 44% 46% 47%
Shane Ray 32% 28% 43% 36% 32%
Shelby Harris 26% 34% 42% 33% 34%
Zach Kerr 19% 32% 32% 29% 40%
Josey Jewell 12% 22% 53% 32% 40%
Shaquil Barrett 7% 26% 39% 35% 34%
Tramaine Brock 4% 35% 8% 0% 0%
Isaac Yiadom 0% 0% 43% 6% 29%
Shamarko Thomas 0% 0% 8% 0% 0%
Dymonte Thomas 0% 0% 0% 0% 2%

Adam Jones was injured again and only played 15 percent of the defensive snaps against the Jets. Von Miller played a little more than he did in the previous two games but had similar impact, which is very little, on the game.

Bradley Roby only played 74 percent of the snaps, so he may have been feeling sick on Sunday before he made all of us sick with his performance. Domata Peko was in the highest percentage of defensive snaps for him this season, but it didn’t seem to help with run stoppages, mainly because the Jets made a concerted effort to run outside the tackles and attack our corners.

I don’t see too much else of interest here, but sound off in the comments if you do. Thanks for reading.
