Counting Minnesota Vikings snaps: Zero to 100 percent for Antone Exum

Antone Exum got his first NFL start and played in every snap for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Antone Exum got his first shot at starting in the NFL because of an injury to Harrison Smith, and Exum got plenty of playing time to prove himself for the future.

Exum was one of only two Minnesota Vikings defenders to play in all 64 snaps, joined by middle linebacker Eric Kendricks. Exum finished with three tackles, a tackle for a loss and a fumble recovery. Prior to Sunday, the most snaps Exum had on defense was six in Week 3.

Five defenders played more than 60 snap, or 90 percent: Kendricks, Exum, Anthony Barr, Terence Newman and Xavier Rhodes.

On the defensive line, the Vikings had a very solid rotation of players, with Everson Griffen getting the most time – 57 snaps.

On offense, besides the offensive line and QB Teddy Bridgewater – those six played every snap – it was tight end Kyle Rudolph getting the most time with 59 of the 70 snaps in a strong all-around performance in the passing and running game. Stefon Diggs continued to get the most work of the receivers with 54 snaps.

The entire snap counts for the Vikings’ 20-10 over the Falcons are as follows:
