Here’s a look at who played how much against the Falcons (via www.profootballfocus.com):

Offense 71 snaps

QB/O-line: Kirk Cousins, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus all played 71, Trent Williams 69, Tom Compton 2

The offensive line has now missed a total of 15 snaps this year (Lichtensteiger 13, Williams 2)

Wide receivers: Pierre Garçon 61, Santana Moss 46,Josh Morgan 44, Aldrick Robinson 36, Nick Williams 3, Lance Lewis 1

That is the third-highest workload for Moss of the season.

Tight ends: Logan Paulsen 66, Fred Davis 20

It was somewhat surprising to see that Niles Paul had no offensive snaps especially with Darrel Young leaving the game early after he aggravated his hamstring injury.

Running backs: Alfred Morris 40, Roy Helu Jr. 31, Darrel Young 7

Due in part to the fact that the Redskins have frequently fallen behind teams quickly and in part to reasons we just can’t fathom, Morris has played just 52 percent of the Redskins’ offensive plays this year (536 of 1.024). Last year he played in 67 percent of the snaps (752 of 1,118).

Defense 70 snaps

Defensive line: Chris Baker 54, Barry Cofield 51, Kedric Golston 32, Jarvis Jenkins 28, Chris Neild 13

Baker’s workload has gradually been increasing over the past month or so and on Sunday he got the start and played his most snaps of the season.

Linebacker: Perry Riley 70, Ryan Kerrigan 66, Brian Orakpo 60, London Fletcher 47, Rob Jackson 18, Nick Barnett 10

Fletcher sat out 23 plays, by far the most he has this season.

Defensive back: DeAngelo Hall 70, Brandon Meriweather 66, Josh Wilson 66, David Amerson 36, E. J. Biggers 35, Reed Doughty 34, Jose Gumbs 13, Trenton Robinson 1

Gumbs made the most of his 13 snaps as he intercepted a Matt Ryan pass.
