Monday Snap Counts: Browns tapping into depth at tight end, wide receiver

We're examining who played how much in Sunday's 35-20 victory over the Bengals.

-- In the past, Cleveland has typically used its top playmakers at running back, wide receiver and tight end for the vast majority of snaps. That wasn't the case Sunday, as running back David Njoku finished with the most among the group at 46 of 64.

-- Jarvis Landry had the most among wide receivers, playing 61 percent of the snaps (39). That's significantly down from most other weeks, when he'd be on the field for almost every single one. Antonio Callaway played 38 snaps and Breshad Perriman continued to see his role increase with 35. Rashard Higgins had 20.

-- Tight end Orson Charles had 24 snaps, mostly as a fullback. Darren Fells was on the field for more than half of the snaps (35) and Seth DeValve was utilized on 15.

-- With Chubb taking the bulk of the snaps at running back, the Browns deployed Duke Johnson on just 18 snaps.

-- Four Browns defensive players were on the field for all 74 snaps -- T.J. Carrie, Denzel Ward, Damarious Randall and Joe Schobert.

-- Myles Garrett, whom the Browns are hoping to keep rested and fresh throughout games, played 57 of 74 snaps. He picked up his 10th sack of the season in Sunday's fourth quarter. Emmanuel Ogbah played 59.

-- The Browns helped Garrett take some snaps off by utilizing Anthony Zettel (17) and Chris Smith (15).

-- Cleveland used Briean Boddy-Calhoun on all but five snaps, as Cincinnati often lined up with three wide receivers.
