Seahawks snap counts for 49ers game

Here are the snap counts for Seattle’s 17-7 win over the 49ers Sunday.
And you’ll notice they are pretty similar to what we have seen the last few weeks in terms of distribution — other than a couple due to injury — as the Seahawks have found a style of play and rotation of players that is working pretty well right now.
As in the first game against the 49ers, the starting back seven played almost every snap — all but two for LB Bruce Irvin — and there wasn’t all that much  nickel (essentially, the 22 snaps played by Tharold Simon).
Speaking of the nickel, Jeremy Lane played solely on special teams. Could be the team just wants to make sure he is healthy before he gets play at cornerback again. Or maybe the Seahawks now consider their current nickel alignment — Simon coming in to play the outside and Byron Maxwell moving inside — to be their best one going forward.
And also once again a high snap count for Michael Bennett (90 percent) after he played 43 of 45 snaps last week. But as he said this week, when they pay you a lot of money, they expect you to play a lot of plays.
