Zach Ertz totally overtook Brent Celek's playing time in this game despite coming off injury. That could be a very good sign for him moving forward.

Nelson Agholor played the second most snaps of any wide receiver but only had one catch for five yards. He was targeted twice. Riley Cooper played a lot less snaps than he did in games last year. Josh Huff's role has increased in his second season.

DeMarco Murray was clearly the favorite at running back but Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews mixed in a good amount of the time.

Chris Maragos played more often than most would have expected as the third safety.

DeMeco Ryans played a lot of snaps early on but the team seemed to get away from him in the second half.

Vinny Curry only played 21 snaps. Considering how Philadelphia's pass rush struggled, the team needed him on the field more often.

Taylor Hart played 19 snaps in his first NFL game. He looked good out there.

Second round pick Eric Rowe did not play a defensive snap.

Seyi Ajirotutu would have played more special teams snaps had he not left the game early with an injury.
