The numbers are skewed to an extent because Chip Kelly pulled his starters later in the game when the Eagles were up big. That said, there are some interesting things of note. Zach Ertz and Brent Celek each played a healthy amount of snaps. The Eagles showed more 12 personnel looks (2 tight ends) than they have recently. Jason Avant's snaps, therefore, became the casualty. He played a season low 49%.
Just like the offensive snap counts, these numbers are skewed to an extent. Patrick Chung finally returned to the active game day roster, but even though he didn't start, he still played more than half the snaps. The Eagles like utilize a three man rotation of Allen, Wolff, and Chung at safety. Bennie Logan started at nose tackle in place of the recently traded Isaac Sopoaga. Logan played a season high 41% of the snaps.
Damaris Johnson was active for the game but didn't play because he was missed time in practice this week with an injury. DeSean Jackson took over at punt returner for a majority of the game and Brandon Boykin was placed on kick return duty.
Among the players with the most ST snaps: James Casey, Chris Polk, Brandon Boykin, Brandon Graham, Zach Ertz, Colt Anderson, Casey Matthews, Najee Goode, Roc Carmichael, Emmanuel Acho, Nate Allen, Alex Henery, Jon Dorenbos, Donnie Jones.
