Eagles snap count vs. Giants: Breakdown, observations from 27-10 loss in Week 18

The Eagles are taking the restart approach to the postseason after a disappointing 27-10 loss to the New York Giants in the regular season finale.

Philadelphia was already without DeVonta Smith and Darius Slay and lost A.J. Brown to a knee injury that’s not considered serious. After quarterback Jalen Hurts suffered a finger injury and Dallas started to pull away from Washington, head coach Nick Sirianni pulled his remaining starters.

With preparation for the Monday night matchup against the Buccaneers to begin on Wednesday, we’re looking at the snap count and playing time percentages from Sunday’s loss.

QB

Marcus Mariota 37 snaps
Jalen Hurts 28 snaps

Jalen Hurts was 7-16 passing, for 55 yards and one interception before getting pulled after suffering a finger injury. Marcus Mariota was 13-20, for 148 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

RB

Kenneth Gainwell 25 snaps
Boston Scott 20 snaps
Rashaad Penny 20 snaps

With D’Andre Swift out, Kenneth Gainwell had seven carries for 62 yards, while Rashaad Penny had six carries for 23 yards in his first action since midseason.

WR

Quez Watkins 64 snaps
Olamide Zaccheaus 53 snaps
Britain Covey 35 snaps
Julio Jones 17 snaps
A.J. Brown 12 snaps

Quez Watkins had 8 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown in what could be his final regular season game with Philadelphia. A.J. Brown was forced to exit with a knee injury and his status for Wild Card Weekend will be something to watch.
