The Miami Dolphins beat the Washington Redskins 17-10 last Sunday. We take a look back at the game through the defensive snap counts for the Dolphins, listing every player who made at least an appearance in the game on the defensive side of the ball.

As we did with our offensive snap counts, we will also 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.

Three defenders played all 79 snaps for Miami last week, cornerbacks Brice McCain and Brent Grimes, as well as linebacker Jelani Jenkins. Safety Reshad Jones appeared ready to play all 79 snaps, but missed the last four of the game after injuring his hamstring.
