Packers' Week 1 playing time breakdown

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- An analysis of the snap counts from the Green Bay Packers' 36-16 loss Thursday to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field:

Offense (62 total plays)

Quarterback

Aaron Rodgers: 62

Offensive line

David Bakhtiari: 62

T.J. Lang: 62

Corey Linsley: 62

Josh Sitton: 62

Derek Sherrod: 42

Bryan Bulaga: 20

Receivers

Jordy Nelson: 61

Randall Cobb: 57

Jarrett Boykin: 49

Davante Adams: 9

Running backs

Eddie Lacy: 31

James Starks: 25

John Kuhn: 8

DuJuan Harris: 3

Mike Daniels: 1

Tight ends

Andrew Quarless: 46

Richard Rodgers: 20

Noteworthy: Bulaga (knee) and Richard Rodgers (neck) were injured on the same play in the second quarter. Bulaga never returned and Rodgers played only three snaps after the injury. ... Sherrod, who replaced Bulaga at right tackle, was beaten so badly on his two sacks that Aaron Rodgers never had a chance. From the time of the snap until defensive end Cliff Avril made contact with the quarterback on the first sack was 1.95 seconds. On the second, Michael Bennett beat Sherrod and first touched Rodgers after 2.5 seconds. ... Coach Mike McCarthy essentially sacrificed his No. 3 receiver -- Boykin or Adams -- by putting him on Richard Sherman's side of the field. He said he lined up Nelson on the left to see if Sherman would follow him, which never happened. Neither Adams nor Boykin had a ball thrown his way. Nelson (14 targets, nine catches) and Cobb (nine targets, six catches) got all but 10 of Aaron Rodgers' targets. Quarless had three catches and one drop after Richard Rodgers' injury. ... Lacy gained most of his 34 yards (on 12 carries) on his own. According to ProFootballFocus.com, he covered 35 yards after contact (meaning he was hit several times behind the line of scrimmage) before he left in the fourth quarter with a concussion. Daniels lined up in the backfield as an extra blocker on Kuhn's 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Defense (70 total plays)

Defensive line

Mike Daniels: 46

Letroy Guion: 36

Datone Jones: 33

Josh Boyd: 24

Linebackers

Brad Jones: 70

Clay Matthews: 66

Julius Peppers: 59

A.J. Hawk: 48

Mike Neal: 39

Nick Perry: 11

Cornerbacks

Sam Shields: 70

Tramon Williams: 70

Casey Hayward: 36

Safeties

Morgan Burnett: 70

Micah Hyde: 51

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: 40

Noteworthy: Guion started in B.J. Raji's old spot, nose tackle, and also played some in the new 4-3 front as one of the two interior linemen. The other two linemen were actually outside linebackers, usually Peppers and Neal, while Matthews lined up alongside inside backers Brad Jones and Hawk. Brad Jones, who was listed as probable after a quad injury, played terrible. By PFF's count, he matched Clinton-Dix with a team-high three missed tackles. PFF counted 16 missed tackles in all. Brad Jones also botched an interception attempt. ... Hyde started the game at safety but gave way to Clinton-Dix and afterward played mainly in the dime. Hayward was the nickel back. ... There were only 10 defenders on the field for Marshawn Lynch's 9-yard touchdown in the second quarter. They were in their nickel front, but Hayward was not on the field.

Top special teams contributors (27 total plays): Jamari Lattimore 25, Jarrett Bush 19, Clinton-Dix 19, Davon House 18, Sam Barrington 18, Sean Richardson 18, Daniels 13, Ryan Taylor 13, Hyde 12.

Noteworthy: The Packers kept most of their defense on the field for fourth-and-2 from their 44-yard line, and Daniels ran into the punter, giving the Seahawks a first down that eventually turned into a touchdown. The Packers almost got nailed for having 13 men on the field on fourth-and-1 for a first-quarter Seahawks' field goal but got a timeout called at the last second.
