The Miami Dolphins played their first game of the 2015 season last Sunday, a 17-10 win over the Washington Redskins. The team was not always efficient, and the game did not go exactly as anyone had hoped, but the end result put a one in the win column on the season, a hard fought win on the road.
This morning, we take a minute to look at the offensive snap counts for the Dolphins. This year, we will track exactly what percentage of the season total snaps each player plays. Below you will find the table to track Week 1, and the graphic to track the year.
The offensive line and quarterback Ryan Tannehill played the entire game, save Branden Albert, who missed a few plays while being tested for a concussion. Jeff Linkenbach (who unfortunately does not have a Miami picture in our database yet) filled in for Albert during that span. Tight end Jordan Cameron played nearly every snap, likely seeing more playing time than expected after Dion Sims sustained a concussion.
DeVante Parker, Miami's first round draft choice this year, may be the biggest surprise, as he appeared on the field for one snap.
(Note: The defense is coming, but, after putting together the graphic below, I didn't have time to put together the defense as well. I'll get it posted as soon as I can.)
