49ers snap count vs. Cardinals: Roster updates impacting future snap counts

We break down the 49ers snap count from their 27-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals

Thearon W. Henderson

The 49ers Week 17 win over the Arizona Cardinals is officially in the rear view mirror, but I figured I'd still post the final snap count of the regular season. The snap count in two weeks will likely differ a decent amount from this one due to health and the likely competitiveness of the 49ers matchup.

The 49ers were able to get their starters some rest late in the game as they got out to a 27-6 lead. Although the 49ers struggled early on offense, once they took their first lead, things calmed down a bit. It took them some time to build on that lead, but the Cardinals were ineffective enough on offense that the 49ers had to feel at least moderately comfortable in the second half.

Heading into the playoffs, the 49ers have made one change, adding kicker Billy Cundiff and releasing linebacker Eric Bakhtiari. While Bakhtiari can provide some help on special teams, he was inactive this past week. If the 49ers decide they need some additional depth at linebacker, he is likely to be around.

The 49ers added Cundiff, but it does not mean the team will carry two kickers into their first playoff game. They might, but we probably will not know until late next week. If Akers struggles in practice, Cundiff likely would get the work a week from Sunday. In the meantime, we wait for practice reports.
