Snap Count Breakdown From the Bengals' 20-17 Loss to the Bears

Cincinnati struggled on Sunday in Chicago.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals' lost to the Bears 20-17 on Sunday afternoon. It was an ugly game that wasn't as close as the score would indicate. 

The Bengals' offense struggled throughout the game. They only ran 55 total plays. 

Joe Burrow and the starting five offensive linemen were on the field for every snap. Ja'Marr Chase led the wide receivers in snaps (51) for the second week in a row, but Tee Higgins (50) and Tyler Boyd (48) weren't far behind. 

Joe Mixon (46) was on the field for all but nine offensive snaps. C.J. Uzomah was on the field for 40 offensive plays. There isn't much to takeaway from the Bengals' offensive snap counts, except that they're clearly going to ride their starters. 

Guys like Mike Thomas (8), Auden Tate (5), Samaje Perine (3) and Chris Evans (2) didn't get much playing time. 

Four players were on the field for every defensive snap. Jessie Bates, Chidobe Awuzie, Vonn Bell and Eli Apple didn't take any plays off (65). 

Logan Wilson (62) and Mike Hilton (59) weren't far behind. The three safety look wasn't used much with Ricardo Allen on injured reserve. Veteran Sean Davis played seven defensive snaps in his Bengals' debut. 

The defensive line rotation met expectations going into this matchup. Sam Hubbard led the way (53 snaps), but Larry Ogunjobi was right behind him (49). Trey Hendrickson (46) and DJ Reader (39) followed. 

The Bengals came out flat on Sunday, but there weren't many surprises from a playing time standpoint.
