Allen Barbre G 96 100.00% 4 12.00%
Dennis Kelly T 96 100.00% 4 12.00%
Jason Kelce C 96 100.00% 0.00%
Lane Johnson T 96 100.00% 0.00%
Zach Ertz TE 76 79.00% 5 15.00%
DeMarco Murray RB 60 63.00% 0.00%
Brent Celek TE 58 60.00% 16 48.00%
Sam Bradford QB 58 60.00% 0.00%
Jordan Matthews WR 57 59.00% 1 3.00%
Nelson Agholor WR 53 55.00% 1 3.00%
Riley Cooper WR 52 54.00% 13 39.00%
Miles Austin WR 45 47.00% 1 3.00%
Josh Huff WR 42 44.00% 6 18.00%
Mark Sanchez QB 38 40.00% 0.00%
Ryan Mathews RB 20 21.00% 0.00%
Darren Sproles RB 17 18.00% 8 24.00%

NOTES:

Zach Ertz played the most snaps of any skill player. Brent Celek also played a lot of snaps. The Eagles have been going with a lot of two tight ends.

Miles Austin and Riley Cooper combined for 97 snaps. Neither player recorded a catch. Cooper hasn't made a reception since Week 6, which was nearly a month ago. The presence of Cooper and Austin has only served to hurt this team. Cooper was responsible for an illegal shift penalty that wiped out Mark Sanchez's touchdown pass to Ertz. Austin, meanwhile, dropped a perfect pass from Sam Bradford early in the game, stopped running his route which led to an interception in the end zone, and didn't even look for the ball on the team's final drive. Austin and Cooper are bad and they're playing a lot of snaps.

Bradford and Ryan Mathews both left the game with injuries and did not return.
