[HogsHaven] Skins Stats & Snaps: Redskins @ Ravens (Offense)

Recommended Posts



Kirk Cousins and the rest of the offensive starters played two series against the Ravens, but only saw the field for a total of 6 snaps (11% of the offensive snaps).

Two drives is not unusual for the starting group in a preseason opener, but those snap numbers are record lows for a Redskins' first-team offense in the first three weeks of the preseason (data dating back to 2012). Washington's 53 total offensive snaps was also a new preseason low for the team.

Granted, that is an extremely small sample size, but it was still quite disappointing to see this group put up the following stat line: 0 first downs, -1 yard, 1 drop, 1 sack and a 33% success rate.

However, Redskins fans shouldn't panic quite yet, because in addition to playing on an extremely low number of plays, the starting offense was playing without three of its top four weapons (Jordan Reed, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson) and was on the road going up against last year's sixth ranked defense in DVOA.

You can't use those excuses for the offense as a whole, though. The Redskins were only able to muster 138 total offensive yards of (99 passing yards and just 39 rushing yards), 2.9 yards per play and a pathetic 8 first downs on the night. They also fumbled the ball three times and went 2 for 13 on third down for a lowly conversion percentage of 15%.


The guys over at HogsHaven go further and break down all of the positions. For instance, @Jlash, Chase Rouiller was on the field for 34 snaps (64%), which was second highest for all offensive linemen (and third highest for any offensive player, if you exclude special teams snaps). Receiver with the highest snap count? Robert Davis (33 snaps, 62%), so yay! :)

However, the overall evaluation? The offense was brutal against the Ravens. We knew this but now you can see how brutal it was.
