NOTES:

Andrew Gardner left the game early due to injury and was replaced with Matt Tobin. Gardner was seen wearing a walking boot and using crutches after the game.

Jason Peters also left the game early which caused the Eagles to shift Tobin to tackle and insert Dennis Kelly at right guard. Peters said he expects to be fine.

Nelson Agholor played more wide receiver snaps than anyone else. He was targeted four times for no receptions. The Revis Island effect.

For the first time all season, Brent Celek played more snaps than Zach Ertz. The gap wasn't too big, however.

With Josh Huff out, the Eagles relied more on Miles Austin than they did Riley Cooper. Austin was targeted four times for no receptions.

DEFENSE

NOTES:

Jordan Hicks played 100% of the snaps in his first NFL start. He was great.

The Eagles played E.J. Biggers way too often at 81% of the defensive snaps. The team was forced into using him in nickel packages when Chris Maragos left early with an injury.

Brandon Bair took the bulk of Cedric Thornton's usual snaps at defensive end.

Beau Allen played a little more often than he usually does because the Eagles shifted Bennie Logan to defensive end at times with Allen taking over a nose tackle in the middle.

Eric Rowe made the most of his first NFL snaps on defense with one pass defensed and a crucial interception.

The recently re-signed Najee Goode got in for a few snaps on defense to help spell DeMeco Ryans.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Denzel Rice made his NFL debut by playing a few special teams snaps.
