Below are the snaps counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday loss to the Minnesota Vikings along with some observations. On a positive note, tight end Heath Miller played 95 of the offensive snaps and was only off of the field for four plays in total. Rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton saw a season-high 36 snaps on offense Sunday and rookie running back Le'Veon Bell saw 60 snaps worth of playing time. On defense, rookie Shamarko Thomas did not see the field on defense with Cortez Allen now back. Rookie linebacker Vince Williams, however, not only started, but played 43 at inside linebacker. It is clear now that he has won the job.
