Detroit Lions Week 1 snap counts observations: Swift, Hockenson centerpieces to offensive attack

Let’s take a closer look at the Detroit Lions’ Week 1 snap count in their 41-33 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.



Jared Goff: 92 (100%)

Nothing surprising here, other than the fact that the Lions ran 92(!!!) offensive plays in this game. By comparison, the 49ers had just 55 plays on offense.

Running backs

D’Andre Swift: 63 (68%)
Jamaal Williams: 32 (35%)
Jason Cabinda: 10 (11%) — 17 special teams snaps (55%)
Godwin Igwebuike: 0 (0%) — 19 (61%)

Jamaal Williams got the start, which drew some raised eyebrows from those expecting Swift to be this team’s primary back.
