For months, we looked at this loaded roster and asked ourselves how the Philadelphia Eagles‘ coaching staff would go about juggling all of the talent it had. Vice president/general manager Howie Roseman had done his job and assembled the best team possible. It was now up to the coaches to find the right mixture of snaps to get the most out of everybody.

Truthfully, we all expected the Birds to make a postseason appearance. That was never the issue. The questions were about whether or not they had the stuff to win it all. Thankfully, we found out they can.

Throw most of what you witnessed during the regular season out. The NFL Playoffs are a different animal. There is no next week. ‘Win or go home’ is the nature of the beast.

We have an entire game to study now. We might be better equipped to make statements about expected workloads. This team will do whatever is necessary to win the Lombardi Trophy, and now, we may be privy to how their weapons will be deployed. Let’s discuss snap counts from the Divisional Round Game.

Eagles full team snap counts (offense)

Jalen Hurts was exceptional. He got the win. From here on out, we expect to see him on the field for every offensive snap. It’s doubtful that Philly will be on the right side of more 31-point wins.

It would be nice if they proved us wrong though!


  • Jalen Hurts, 67 snaps (96%)
  • Gardner Minshew, three snaps (4%)

Running backs

  • Miles Sanders, 28 snaps (40%)
  • Kenneth Gainwell, 26 snaps (37%)
  • Boston Scott, 16 snaps (23%)

Wide receivers

  • DeVonta Smith, 67 snaps (96%)
  • A.J. Brown, 51 snaps (73%)
  • Zach Pascal, 24 snaps (34%)
  • Quez Watkins, 22 snaps (31%)

Tight ends

  • Dallas Goedert, 67 snaps (96%)
  • Jack Stoll, 37 snaps (53%)
  • Grant Calcaterram 12 snaps (17%)

Offensive line

  • Jordan Mailata, 70 snaps (100%)
  • Isaac Seumalo, 67 snaps (98%)
  • Jason Kelce, 67 snaps (96%)
  • Lane Johnson, 67 snaps (96%)
  • Landon Dickerson, 65 snaps (93%)
  • Andre Dillard, eight snaps (11%)
  • Cam Jurgens, three snaps (4%)
  • Jack Driscoll, three snaps (4%)

Final thoughts for the offense. Much of this is what we expected, but it was good to see Philly utilize their running back committee.

Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, and Kenneth Gainwell combined for 35 carries, 234 yards rushing, and two touchdowns. Jalen Hurts chipped in with 34 rushing yards and a TD run of his own. Lane Johnson was spectacular despite playing wounded.

This is where things get really interesting. Minus Avonte Maddox, the Eagles deployed C.J. Gardner-Johnson as their slot corner versus three-wide-receiver sets.

The Eagles’ pass rush continues to be a marvel and impressive.

Defensive line

  • Josh Sweat, 34 snaps (65%)
  • Javon Hargrave, 31 snaps (60%)
  • Fletcher Cox, 28 snaps (54%)
  • Jordan Davis, 19 snaps (37%)
