Snap count notes:.

  • Darren Sproles had one run that gained 38 yards, but barely saw the field most of the game. He only took 15 snaps, just 23% of the total plays. He still had 61 yards of offensive output.
  • For those wanting to see a little less play trickery to Josh Hill, you got your wish Sunday night. Hill only took one offensive snap.
  • Kenny Vaccaro played a fair amount more snaps than Roman Harper.
  • Ramon Humber, Kevin Reddick, Chris Carr, and Rod Sweeting were used exclusively on special teams.
  • Malcolm Jenkins actually played two offensive snaps. Victory formation.
