These are the player snap counts from the Philadelphia Eagles' victory over the New York Giants.

The following players were inactive and did not play: Jerome Couplin, Jeff Maehl, Bradley Fletcher, Nick Foles, Taylor Hart, Dennis Kelly, Julian Vandervelde.

The following players were active but did not play: Matt Barkley, David Molk, Marcus Smith II.

Smith II, the team's first round pick from the 2014 NFL Draft class, finished the season with only 105 snaps played. 68 of those were on defense and the other 37 came on special teams.

Notes:

Brent Celek only played one more snap than Zach Ertz. The latter tight end's playing time has increased in the final weeks of the season. A prelude to 2015?

Chris Polk took over for LeSean McCoy after he left the game late with an injury. Polk also continues to get goal line carries.

DEFENSE

Notes:

Nolan Carroll II started in place of Bradley Fletcher. Carroll II shifted to his normal position of dime linebacker when the Eagles used that package. With Carroll II moving inside, the Eagles used outside rookie cornerback Jaylen Watkins, and Brandon Boykin, on the outside. It was the first time Watkins played on defense all season.

It will be interesting to see how the Eagles handle their internal options at cornerback. They will be sure to add some additions in free agency and the draft, but Carroll II is under contract and could be in line for a starting job next season. Watkins could also be in the mix if he earns it. Boykin seems locked in to the nickel spot.

The Eagles relied on Brandon Graham a little more often than they usually do due to the fact Trent Cole was dealing with a broken hand. Cole still played his fair share of snaps, however.

Nothing out of the ordinary here.
