These are the snap counts for the Carolina Panthers in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers

OFFENSE

Name Position Snaps Percentage
Michael Oher OT 67 100%
Amini Silatolu OG 67 100%
Mike Remmers OT 67 100%
Cam Newton QB 67 100%
Greg Olsen TE 67 100%
Trai Turner OG 67 100%
Ryan Kalil C 67 100%
Philly Brown WR 54 81%
Jonathan Stewart RB 51 76%
Ted Ginn WR 48 72%
Ed Dickson TE 35 52%

Mike Tolbert FB 22 33%
Devin Funchess WR 18 27%
Fozzy Whittaker RB 6 9%
Chris Scott G 4 6%
Joe Webb WR 1 1%

Notes

  • The Carolina Panthers continue to operate a majority of their offense out of a two-tight end set with Greg Olsen and Ed Dickson on the field for 52% of the team's offensive snaps. Once again, Olsen played every snap against the Green Bay Packers and has yet to miss an offensive snap for the Panthers this season.
  • The Panthers' top three wide receivers, in terms of snaps, was Philly BrownTed Ginn Jr. and Jerricho Cotchery but one name to keep an eye on next week against the Tennessee Titans is Devin Funchess. Against the Packers he played only 18 snaps but had his most productive game of his career and could see an increase in playing time.

DEFENSE

Name Position Snaps Percentage
Thomas Davis LB 77 100%
Kurt Coleman FS 77 100%
Roman Harper SS 77 100%
Luke Kuechly LB 76 99%
Josh Norman CB 76 99%
Bene Benwikere CB 75 97%
Charles Tillman CB 74 96%
Kawann Short DT 65 84%
Jared Allen DE 55 71%
Kony Ealy DE 51 66%
Star Lotulelei DT 48 62%
Mario Addison DE 36 47%
Kyle Love DT 22 29%
Wes Horton DE 16 21%
Ryan Delaire DE 15 19%
Shaq Thompson LB 5 6%
Teddy Williams CB 1 1%
A.J. Klein LB 1 1%

Notes

  • Even with Shaq Thompson back this week from a knee injury, the Panthers spent a majority of their time with three cornerbacks on the field. Josh Norman played 99% of the defensive snaps, Charles Tillman played 96% and Bene Benwikere played 97%. The Green Bay Packers do spend a majority of their time in three wide receiver sets as Randall CobbJames Jones and Davante Adams played over 92% of the game. The Panthers' ability to match up against opposing offense's formations is one of their strengths as they have the personnel to play nickel or their base 4-3 defense.
  • One thing that may not change is the breakdown of playing time at defensive end until Charles Johnson returns at the end of the month. Jared Allen and Kony Ealy saw a majority of the snaps, with 71% and 66% respectively, followed by Mario Addison at 47%, and then Wes Horton and Ryan Delaire around 20%.
