Here’s are some observations based on the snap-count data from the Chiefs’ 31-7 win over the New York Giants on Sunday (stats provided by the NFL).

• The big winner of the week was obviously cornerback Marcus Cooper, who went from playing one defensive snap against Philadelphia to a whopping 56 against New York. If you read Monday’s paper, you already know he

did pretty well

, too.

• Nose tackle Dontari Poe’s two-week streak of playing 100 percent of his team’s defensive snaps has come to an end. He was on the field for 57 of the Chiefs’63 defense plays Sunday.

• Linebacker Akeem Jordan saw his workload decrease, as he logged only 21 percent of his team’s defensive snaps against the Giants after logging 92 percent of the snaps against the Eagles.

• Safety Husain Abdullah also saw his workload decrease significantly. After logging 39 snaps against the Eagles, he only logged nine against the Giants. Meanwhile, safety Quintin Demps - who only logged four defense snaps against the Eagles - logged 34 against the Giants.

• Defensive end Allen Bailey logged 26 snaps Sunday after logging only two against the Eagles.

• Defensive end Tyson Jackson saw his workload decrease a tad, from 52 percent of the snaps to 35 percent.

• Receiver A.J. Jenkins saw his snaps decrease from 19 against Philadelphia to four against New York.

• Receiver Chad Hall didn’t get any offensive snaps after receiving four last week.

• Defensive end Mike Catapano logged nine defensive snaps after failing to log any against Philadelphia.

• Eric Kush got some work at left guard on the punt coverage unit after logging zero snaps there last week, while linebacker Nico Johnson also saw his first NFL action on special teams.

• Geoff Schwartz received all the snaps at left guard because of Jeff Allen’s groin injury. Schwartz is a pretty versatile guy; if you rememember, he started at right guard for Jon Asamoah in the Chiefs’ 28-2 win over Jacksonville in the season opener.

• Blue Springs graduate Donald Stephenson filled in at tackle for Eric Fisher, who was lost right before halftime with a concussion.
