Dolphins Week 4 snap counts against Jets

We finally catch up on our Week 4 snap counts for the Miami Dolphins from their London game against the New York Jets.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It was pointed out to me this morning that I never did a snap counts post for the Miami Dolphins in their Week 4 contest against the New York Jets, losing it somewhere in the coverage of Joe Philbin being fired. Since it is already into Week 5, despite Miami having their bye this week, I will not do the typical two posts, one for the offense, one for the defense. Instead, I will combine everything into this one post.


Four players played all 64 snaps for the Dolphins this week, center Mike Pouncey, tackle Ja'Wuan James, guard Jamil Douglas, and quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Following them, guard Dallas Thomas and tight end Jordan Cameron each played 98-percent of the snaps, with tackle Jason Fox playing 95-percent of the game.

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry played 86-percent of the offensive plays, while running back Lamar Miller was in thegame 80-percent of the time. Wide receivers Greg Jennings, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker were on the field 61-percent, 44-percent, and 36-percent of the time, respectively. Running back Jonas Gray saw the field for 11-percent of the offensive possession, while tight end Jake Stone Burner (9 percent), running back Damien Williams (8 percent), tackle Jeff Linkenbach (8 percent), and center Sam Brenner (2 percent) all made appearances.
