Week Six in Review

About the Blog

Week Six produced more big special teams plays, including multiple blocked kicks and punts.  However, the snapping issues in Cleveland appear to have been resolved, as Christian Yount has rebounded and even added an assisted tackle this week in punt coverage, his second tackle in two weeks.  The Browns released Charley Hughlett from the practice squad shortly after last week’s game.  Snapper Danny Aiken of the Patriots had a rough sequence against the Bills Sunday with a false start penalty, followed immediately by a low snap on a field goal.

Heading into this week’s action, only 9 players had played in all of their team’s games since the 2005 NFL season.  Two of them are snappers, Mike Leach (Cardinals) and John Denney (Dolphins).  Ironically, Denney may have his streak ended this week due to an injury he suffered in Sunday’s game against the Packers.

In addition to Yount’s assisted tackle, Josh Harris (Falcons) had a solo tackle, while Garrison Sanborn (Bills), Greg Warren (Steelers) and Jon Condo (Raiders) had assisted stops.  The NFL Long Snappers Chart after Week Five is below.
