Snap counts: Snacks Harrison up, Taylor Decker down for Detroit

DETROIT — The Lions fell 28-14 on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Here is an analysis of how the snaps were distributed. 

— What a debut for Snacks Harrison. He was traded to Detroit on Wednesday, then bombed Seattle for seven solo tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack. No Lions defensive tackle has ever had those kind of numbers before, and this cat did it after two practices. Yeah, he’s pretty good. Detroit allowed 3.2 yards per carry when he was on the field, and 5.6 yards when he wasn’t. He clearly made a huge difference. He didn’t start, but played 39 of the defense’s 63 snaps. That’s 61.9 percent, roughly what we can expect from him going forward. He was playing about 47 percent of the snaps in New York.

— Beat writers are usually hustling to get their game stories ready late in games, so sometimes things get overlooked. Like, say, the starting left tackle missing the final series of the game. Taylor Decker was sidelined the last eight plays, and it’s unclear why. The Lions never announced the injury, and it went undetected live from the press box, so Matt Patricia wasn’t asked about it after the game. Rookie Tyrell Crosby replaced Decker on the final drive and played the first eight offensive snaps of his career.

— In his two games back from a brain injury, guard T.J. Lang continues to rotate out for some extra rest. He took eight plays off in this one, and Kenny Wiggins replaced him at right guard. 

— Detroit leaned on Kerryon Johnson hard. The rookie running back played 81 percent of the offensive snaps, nearly double his season average. The workload was likely the result of facing a double-digit deficit without top pass-catching running back Theo Riddick, who missed a second straight game with a knee injury. Johnson caught a career-high six passes for 69 yards, but ran for just 22 yards on eight carries. Detroit ran the ball just 13 times overall, one of which was a scramble by Matthew Stafford.

— The Lions have been really stretched in the secondary. They’re already playing without starting nickel Jamal Agnew, then lost starting outside corners Darius Slay and Nevin Lawson for four plays apiece because of injuries. And Glover Quin had his workload scaled back to 84 percent. It’s unclear whether that was due to injury, performance or just the game plan.

— The list of offensive and defensive players who have not missed a snap this season: Right tackle Rick Wagner, left guard Frank Ragnow and center Graham Glasgow. In fact, Glasgow hasn’t missed a single snap since his rookie season in 2016.
