NOTES:

With injuries at wide receiver, Zach Ertz and Brent Celek both got plenty of playing time. Ertz led all skill players in playing time. The Eagles have gone heavier on two tight end sets in recent weeks.

Josh Huff and Riley Cooper both missed some snaps due to leaving the game early with injuries. They later returned, however. The injuries at receiver forced the Eagles to rely on Miles Austin a little bit more, and the veteran actually wasn't bad. He had three receptions for 60 yards.

DEFENSE

NOTES:

Walter Thurmond was the only defensive player to play all the snaps.

Nickel safety Chris Maragos got a lot of playing time since the Giants like to use formations with a lot of receivers. Maragos really hasn't been a liability at all this year despite being considered only a special teams player.

E.J. Biggers is getting a lot more snaps than second round draft pick Eric Rowe.

2014 first round pick Marcus Smith got some playing time yet again.

Najee Goode got some playing time when DeMeco Ryans had to leave the game and miss some snaps.

Apparently tight end Trey Burton played a defensive snap?
