Here’s a breakdown of the snap counts from the Philadelphia Eagles' 34-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

OFFENSE

Alshon Jeffery played the most snaps of any wide receiver but only had three receptions for 31 yards.

The Eagles are still doing their rotation at left guard. Just like last week, this was roughly 60% Stefen Wisniewski and 40% Chance Warmack.

Lane Johnson had to leave early due to suffering a head injury. Halapoulivaati Vaitai took over in his place.

With Wendell Smallwood out, LeGarrette Blount played the most snaps of any Eagles running back. Corey Clement’s playing time just by 10% from last week. Kenjon Barner played a quarter of the Eagles’ snaps in his first offensive action with the team this year.

Trey Burton and Marcus Johnson didn’t play much but they made some worthwhile contributions. Burton had two receptions for six yards and a touchdown. Johnson had a six yard reception that moved the chains in the red zone.

DEFENSE

Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod were the only two defensive players to play all the snaps. Jalen Mills had to come out for a little bit after getting shaken up early in the game.

Patrick Robinson’s playing time increased from 56% in Week 4 to 77% in this game. The Eagles were using him more often on the outside, which meant less playing time for Rasul Douglas. The third-round rookie corner only played 33% of the snaps after playing 100% in Week 4. The Cardinals have a lot of speed at wide receiver and Douglas isn’t the fastest guy so it seems like this was a matchup based decision. Robinson obviously played very well against Arizona. If he could catch, he would’ve had three interceptions on the day. The Eagles rotating their corners isn’t a new thing. They often did this with Leodis McKelvin and Jalen Mills last season.

Corey Graham returned from missing two games and played 67% of the Eagles’ defensive snaps. This allowed Jenkins to move down to the slot to man up against Larry Fitzgerald. Jenkins held Fitzgerald to three catches for 31 yards prior to the Arizona’s final drive, when he had two receptions for 20 yards in garbage time.

Justin Hamilton played more snaps than Elijah Qualls. Hamilton was originally on the practice squad while Qualls was on the roster.

SPECIAL TEAMS

K Jake Elliott - 13 - 46%

P Donnie Jones - 9 - 32%

LS Rick Lovato - 9 - 32%

LB Joe Walker - 6 - 21%

Elliott hasn’t missed a kick since nailing that 61-yarder against the Giants. He’ll likely never miss again.

The following players were ruled inactive prior to the game: Fletcher Cox, Ronald Darby, Wendell Smallwod, Jaylen Watkins, Destiny Vaeao, Shelton Gibson, and Isaac Seumalo.

The following player(s) were active but did not play: Nick Foles.
