Week Seventeen in Review

About the Blog

The NFL regular season is complete and, for the fourth consecutive year, Zak DeOssie of the Giants recorded the most tackles in punt coverage by a long snapper.  DeOssie recorded eight total tackles, including five solo, according to my weekly compilation from the official NFL Game Books.

Beau Brinkley of the Titans finished second with six total tackles, including one in each of the last three weeks.  DeOssie tied with Garrison Sanborn of the Bills last season with nine tackles after recording eight in 2012 and ten in 2011.

During the season, just two teams made snapping changes.  The Ravens used three snappers, starting with Morgan Cox, who was replaced by Kevin McDermott and, most recently, Patrick Scales.  The other team to make a change was the Patriots, who used Rob Ninkovich for one game after Danny Aiken suffered a concussion.

The final 2014 NFL Long Snappers Chart is below.
