Falcons’ playing time percentage breakdown vs. Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Matt Hennessy and Drew Dalman rotated at center for the Falcons in the 21-14 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday at TIAA Bank Field.

Hennessy played 40 of the 60 offensive snaps (67%) and Dalman played 20 snaps (33%).

“That was the plan all week with (Matt Hennessy) and Drew (Dalman), and I thought Matt responded,” Falcons coach Arthur Smith said. “That’s not an easy thing to go through. Yeah, it was a little unconventional, but we thought it was best for our football team. I thought it made us better and we’ll continue to do that.”

Rookie safety Richie Grant played 32 defensive snaps (44%) against the Jaguars. He played 58 defensive snaps against the Dolphins on Oct. 24. He’s been getting more action of late. He played 33 snaps (43%) against Dallas and 24 (37%) against New England.

Rookie cornerback Darren Hall played a season-high 26 defensive snaps (36%) against the Jaguars. His previous high was 21 defensive snaps in the blowout by Dallas.

“It’s good to see Richie and Duron (Harmon),” Smith said. “It’s a long season, but (we) try to have perspective there, too. They came up. They made plays. (Adetokunbo Ogundeji) is continuing to have a (good season), just a quiet pro. A lot of these young guys are having impacts and they’re surrounded by some smart vets, and we’ve got to play together as a team.”
