The star edge rusher, Montez Sweat, saw an increase in his snaps during Monday night’s 12-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium after a previous decrease in his playtime.

In the thrilling win, Sweat played 39 snaps, amounting to 71% of the Bears’ defensive snaps, a notable increase from previous games.

General manager Ryan Poles and head coach Matt Eberflus had a conversation about maximizing the use of top players in crucial moments, which led to increased playing time for Sweat.

Despite not reaching the snap count percentage typically seen by elite edge rushers, Sweat made a significant impact in the win against the Vikings, notching seven pressures, 1.5 sacks, and a win rate of 25.0 percent.

Sweat’s performance demonstrated his value as an elite edge rusher, allowing strategic implementation of rush games by Eberflus and defensive line coach Travis Smith, ultimately contributing to the team’s success.

The game also saw rookie running back Roschon Johnson out-snapping Khalil Herbert, with Eberflus emphasizing the importance of practice and production in determining the backfield rotation each week.

Here’s the snap count from the win over the Vikings:
