Here’s a breakdown of the snap counts from the Philadelphia Eagles' 28-23 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

OFFENSE

The big news here is that the left guard rotation appears to be over. The Eagles stuck with Stefen Wisniewski for the whole game instead of rotating Chance Warmack in. Good. Wis is clearly better than Warmack. No need to rotate.

Alshon Jeffery logged a defensive snap at the end of the first half. The Eagles put him in the end zone in order to knock down a potential Hail Mary attempt.

Corey Clement’s playing time dropped from 34% in Week 5 to only 16% this week. Kenjon Barner’s rose from 25% to 35%. The Eagles probably shouldn’t be playing Barner as much as they did last night.

Mack Hollins and Marcus Johnson haven’t been getting much offensive playing time but they’ve been making the most of their snaps. Hollins had two receptions for two first downs and a total of 38 yards. Johnson had a nice sideline grab for a 16-yard gain.

Isaac Seumalo took over the role Halapoulivaati Vaitai usually plays as a sixth offensive lineman (tackle eligible).

DEFENSE

The Eagles seem to be rotating Patrick Robinson and Rasul Douglas to some extent. Robinson is playing too well not to be on the field right now. Douglas is also showing some nice potential.

Fletcher Cox played 79% of the snaps in his return. So he wasn’t even too limited, if at all. That’s a good sign moving forward.

Mychal Kendricks, Joe Walker, and Najee Goode all saw an increase in playing time due to Jordan Hicks leaving the game and Nigel Bradham also missing a few snaps.

Tim Jernigan’s playing time was pretty limited. He got banged up in this game.

Justin Hamilton leapfrogged Elijah Qualls on the depth chart. The Eagles kept Qualls on the roster and Hamilton on the practice squad originally but now the latter is getting playing time while the former is a healthy scratch. Hamilton notched half of a sack on Thursday night.

After playing 67% of the Eagles’ defensive snaps in Week 5, Corey Graham only played 9% in this one. Matchup specific.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Chris Maragos suffered an injury and had to leave the game early. No other surprises here.

The following players were ruled inactive prior to the game: Lane Johnson, Ronald Darby, Wendell Smallwood, Destiny Vaeao, Jaylen Watkins, Shelton Gibson, Elijah Qualls.
