Snap Count Analysis: Peters Plays Every Snap in Week 4

Los Angeles witnessed terrific performances from quarterback Jared Goff and wide receiver Cooper Kupp en route to a 38-31 victory over Minnesota. 

Here's a look at the Rams snap counts from Week 4, as the club heads into a long weekend 4-0.

OFFENSE

— Seven members of Los Angeles' starting offense played all 55 snaps: the starting offensive line (Andrew Whitworth, Rodger Saffold, John Sullivan, Austin Blythe, and Rob Havenstein from left to right), quarterback Jared Goff, and wide receiver Robert Woods. 

— Running back Todd Gurley and wide receiver Cooper Kupp came in with 53 snaps (96 percent). Gurley's playing time is notable because that's a very high percentage for a running back. 

— Wide receiver Brandin Cooks finished with 52 snaps (95 percent). 

— Tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett largely split time at their spot, but there were a couple plays where both were in — including Woods' 31-yard touchdown. Higbee played 34 snaps (62 percent) while Everett played 23 (42 percent). 

— Reserves TE Johnny Mundt and RB Malcolm Brown played two snaps each, while wideout Josh Reynolds was in for one offensive play.

DEFENSE

— With Minnesota's offense clicking, the defense had a total of 74 snaps to play. 

— The Rams' starting defensive backfield — safety John Johnson, safety Lamarcus Joyner, cornerback Sam Shields, and cornerback Marcus Peters — each played 100 percent of the snaps. 

— Peters playing each and every snap is significant, considering he left the Week 3 matchup with the Chargers and did not return with a calf strain. 

— Defensive signal-caller Cory Littleton was on the field for 73 plays (99 percent). 

— Defensive tackle Aaron Donald showed off just how in shape he is, playing 71 snaps (96 percent) — which is a high number for any defensive lineman. DT NDamukong Suh wasn't far behind at 68 snaps (92 percent). 

— Defensive end John Franklin-Myers recorded the game's pivotal last sack, forcing a fumble on quarterback Kirk Cousins with about 1:20 left on the game clock. He played 35 snaps (47 percent), earning his first career sack on the final rep. 

— With outside linebacker Dominique Easley inactive, rookie Trevon Young suited up for the first time. He was in for two plays for his NFL debut.

SPECIAL TEAMS

— Safety Blake Countess and linebacker Bryce Hager led the way with 26 special teams snaps (79 percent). 

— Johnny Hekker punted twice for an average of 35.5 yards. He has punted only three times in the last two weeks. 

— Kicker Sam Ficken missed a 28-yard field goal, but did connect on a 34 yarder and all five of Los Angeles' extra-points attempts.
