Buccaneers vs. Rams snap counts: William Gholston continues his rise

The snap counts for the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams are in.

The snap counts are in, and they are juicy! Or, well, not really. I'm just kidding. They're fairly standard. Gerald McCoy takes a ton of snaps, and William Gholston has all but completely replaced Daniel Te'o-Nesheim as the left defensive end at this point. The backup defensive linemen in general are seeing extremely little playing time, with McCoy and Adrian Clayborn taking 100% of the snaps.

Chris Owusu got the start over Tiquan Underwood, but the latter still got many more snaps. Jamon Meredith was benched on Sunday after one quarter of play, with Ted Larsen coming in in his stead.  That didn't matter much, in the end, but it just illustrates that the Bucs have issues along the interior offensive line, which is something we've known for a long long time.

One interesting note: the Bucs spent most of the game in base defense, with third cornerback Leonard Johnson taking just 13 snaps. Adam Hayward split snaps with Dekoda Watson in the base defense, another change from previous games.
