Bills ILB Arthur Moats did not win a starting job out of training camp at one of the two inside linebacker positions. Those belonged to Nigel Bradham and Kiko Alonso. But in Sunday’s opener, Moats got more snaps than some may have anticipated.
It may have just been a byproduct of the defensive packages defensive coordinator Mike Pettine had in Sunday’s game plan, or the fact that New England’s offense was on the field for 89 plays, but Moats got 24 snaps to Bradham’s 19.
While the difference in playing time is negligible, it’s probably more playing time on defense than most expected for Moats heading into the season.
Moats had three total tackles, including one for loss. Bradham had one tackle and a pass defensed.
Both Moats and Bradham got 19 snaps on special teams.
