Offensive snaps: Heavier look in Miami

MIAMI -- A look at snaps played by Buffalo Bills skill-position players in Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins, while analyzing how the totals reflect the way players were utilized (totals provided by the NFL):

QB Thad Lewis -- 67 of 67

WR Robert Woods -- 63 of 67

WR Steve Johnson -- 60 of 67

TE Scott Chandler -- 59 of 67

RB Fred Jackson -- 39 of 67

WR T.J. Graham -- 34 of 67

TE Lee Smith -- 32 of 67

RB C.J. Spiller -- 14 of 67

RB Tashard Choice -- 12 of 67

FB Frank Summers -- 11 of 67

TE Chris Gragg -- 6 of 67

WR Marquise Goodwin -- 5 of 67

WR Chris Hogan -- 0 of 67

WR Marcus Easley -- 0 of 67

ANALYSIS: The Bills opted for a more of a tight end-based approach, leading to Smith, the No. 2 tight end seeing almost equal time to Graham, the No. 3 receiver. Smith made his second catch of the season on Sunday. Gragg, a seventh-round draft pick in April, also got his first offensive action with the Bills. ... Spiller played just 21 percent of offensive plays, and while his toughness to play on an injured ankle is admirable, the Bills aren't getting much from him. He finished with 11 yards on six carries, a 1.8-yard average that was part of the Bills' overall struggles on first and second down. ... One week after hauling in a 40-yard touchdown pass, Goodwin was on the field for just five snaps, while Hogan, who received significant playing time in Johnson's absence, was strictly a special-teams contributor Sunday. There's likely nothing more to read into here than the Bills deciding to go heavier with their offensive personnel against Miami.
