Who played the most and the least for the Eagles in Preseason Week 3?

While the score may not matter when it comes to NFL preseason football, it's still interesting to take a look at not only how players performed but how often they played. Here are some snap count observations from the Philadelphia Eagles 31-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. (Recap)

Starters

Philadelphia's starters played for most of the first half. The majority of the offensive starters played anywhere from 43 to 48 snaps. The Eagles' defense did a good job of getting off the field on third down which meant less playing time for them: around 20 to 30 snaps.
