Snap counts: Doug Martin is back to being the Buccaneers' lead back

New, comments

The snap counts for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' game against the Cincinnati Bengals are in.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers went back to Doug Martin as their starting and main running back against the Cincinnati Bengals, to reasonable effect. With 12 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown in the first half, Martin looked to be back to his old self. But his six second-half carries led to just a net gain of three yards. Charles Sims didn't do much better, though, and the Bucs appear to have given up entirely on Bobby Rainey as a runner. Which is odd, because he's been the most productive running back this year.

On defense, nothing too spectacular happened. Da'Quan Bowers received a solid amount of playing time in place of the injured Clinton McDonald. Brandon Dixon got just five snaps, but still managed an interception. Isaiah Frey actually received more playing time than Leonard Johnson, but that didn't stop Johnson from being burned by A.J. Green for a touchdown.

One odd development was that Major Wright sat out the entire game. He didn't even play a single special teams snap, and given the fact that nearly every defensive player suits up for special teams and Major Wright has in the past, this means his absence was probably injury-related -- though not felt all that badly.
