NOTES

The coaching staff remembered that Wendell Smallwood and Kenjon Barner exist, but it didn't do much good on Sunday.

Brent Celek and Trey Burton played just 22 snaps combined. The Eagles strength on offense (besides Carson Wentz) is their tight ends, and that limited amount of playing time, especially with the offensive line struggling, is highly concerning. Brent Celek is an excellent blocking tight end but he played a season low total and percentage of snaps.

Also concerning, after seeing time in every game as a 6th offensive lineman, Matt Tobin never saw any action on offense.

The broadcast showed when Jaylen Watkins entered the game, which is nice for his family because that's the only play the coaches put him on the field for.

Beau Allen and Destiny Vaeao's playing time increased in relief of an injured Bennie Logan.

Mychal Kendricks' 30% of snaps was his second lowest of the season, though his second most in terms of total snaps. Also of note, his special teams playing time has decreased each week, from a Week 1 high of 21% to a Week 6 low of 5%.

Thanks in part to returning kickoffs, Wendell Smallwood played a season high number and percentage of special teams snaps. His 10 snaps on offense were his second highest of the season. Expect the coaching staff to continue to find ways to get him on the field.
