WR Brad Smith 11 18%
RB Darren Sproles 9 15%
OT Andrew Gardner 6 10%
C David Molk 6 10%
QB Matt Barkley 6 10%

Notes:

Nothing too interesting here. Some backup players saw increased playing time due to the Eagles' big lead late in the game. For example, Matt Barkley saw his first snaps of the 2014 season.

Despite not being very active as a pass-catcher, second-year tight end Zach Ertz did get a fairly decent amount of playing time. It's clear Brent Celek is still ahead of him, though, and for good reason. Celek has been the better blocker and the veteran proved on Monday night that he's still a threat in the passing attack.

If Riley Cooper continues to struggle as he has, it's really time for the Eagles to work in Josh Huff more often. The problem is that Huff has also struggled during his opportunities.

NT Beau Allen 20 24%
LB Marcus Smith II 10 12%
S Chris Maragos 9 11%
LB Bryan Braman 4 5%

Notes:

Brandon Graham played a season-high 49% of the team's defensive snaps. Usually he's around the mid-30% range. Graham has excelled during limited playing time and he continues to deserve more. He's been very effective not only as a pass rusher but also as a run stuffer.

With DeMeco Ryans out, Emmanuel Acho and Casey Matthews nearly split time evenly at inside linebacker.

Brandon Boykin only played 27% of the team's snaps due to the formations Carolina was using.

First round pick Marcus Smith II got on the field for a limited number of snaps.

Special team aces Chris Maragos and Bryan Braman saw some action late in the game.
