The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Las Vegas Raiders 31-13 in the regular season finale on Saturday.
Only two players on offense played 100% of the snaps, which tells you that this game was a dominant win for Kansas City. Chad Henne and three backup offensive linemen played seven snaps to help close out the game.
What else can we learn from the weekly snap numbers? Here’s a look at how the snaps came down in Week 18:
*Snap counts via NFL Game Statistics and Information System

- Lucas Niang played seven offensive snaps this week, the most in a single game since his Week 17 injury last season.
- Khalen Saunders had one snap on offense this week, but it was a failed play in the red zone.
- Nick Bolton, Justin Reid, Trent McDuffie, L’Jarius Sneed and Juan Thornhill played 100% of the defensive snaps. It was most impressive for Sneed, who was dealing with a hip pointer injury.
- With Frank Clark exiting due to injury, Carlos Dunlap played the second-most snaps that he’d played in a single game this season.
