--Cousins was one of only four quarterbacks this season (Eli Manning, Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford) to play 100 percent of a team's offensive snap counts. Backup Colt McCoy was active for all 16 games but didn't take a single snap.

--Scherff and Moses, meanwhile, recorded more than 1,000 snaps for the second straight season. Since being selected with the No. 5-overall pick in 2015, Scherff has appeared on all but 17 offensive snaps over the last two seasons.

--The Redskins had three different running backs record at least 200 snaps, led by Thompson's 489. While Kelley didn't appear much early in the season as the team's No. 3 running back, the rookie eventually supplanted Jones as the starter and would go on to rush for more than 700 yards with six rushing scores.

--Garçon appeared on the exact same number of snaps in 2016 as he did in 2015 (808).

--Nsekhe saw the biggest jump in snaps played from last season to this season, as he appeared on just 193 offensive snaps last year.

--Doctson, the team's No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, appeared on 31 offensive snaps before being placed on Injured Reserve. He caught a 57-yard pass from Cousins in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.

--Bates, an outside linebacker, appeared on five plays as a fullback before being placed on Injured Reserve as well.
