Here's a look at the Eagles' Week 15 offensive and defensive snap counts.

Do the Eagles have the horses? Look at the offensive roster, and it would be hard to convince yourself that they don't. Something must change though. It must do so in a hurry. If this team turns things around, they're going to have to be led by the guys on Brian Johnson's side of the ball.

Here are the Week 15 offensive snap counts at every position (and a few theories about what the totals mean).

1. Quarterback

Offensive snap counts:
Jalen Hurts -69 snaps

He's clearly struggling. It's frustrating to watch, but as bad as it's been as of late, Jalen Hurts gives the Eagles the best chance to win a football game. There's no second-guessing that.

No one wants to see Marcus Mariota play meaningful football. Cancel any chance of winning if that happens.

2. Running back

Offensive snap counts:
D’Andre Swift - 41 snaps
Kenneth Gainwell - 28 snaps
Boston Scott - 1 snap

Well, Eagles fans got what they wanted, more D'Andre Swift and less Kenny Gainwell. That led to good results, but we still believe Boston Scott needs more burn. Dude can ball.

3. Wide receiver

Offensive snap counts:
DeVonta Smith - 66 snaps
A.J. Brown - 66 snaps
Quez Watkins - 36 snaps
Julio Jones - 22 snaps
Olamide Zaccheaus - 5 snaps

We'd flip Julio Jones' number of snaps with what Olamide Zaccheaus is getting, but that's just us. Better yet, have them meet in the middle and take a few from Quez Watkins. We just don't see what the continuing fascination is with 'Fast Batman'. The next time he fights for the ball will be the first time he does so.

4. Tight end

Offensive snap counts:
Dallas Goedert - 58 snaps
Jack Stoll - 22 snaps

Dallas Goedert has the potential to be one of the game's best at his position. Jack Stoll is good enough to give him breaks, and even though no one wants to believe this, Stoll can catch the rock if it's thrown in his direction... Just saying...

5. Offensive line

Offensive snap counts:
Sua Opeta - 69 snaps
Jordan Mailata - 69 snaps
Jason Kelce - 69 snaps
Lane Johnson - 69 snaps
Landon Dickerson - 68 snaps
Tyler Steen - 1 snap

No complaints here. This is the only offensive unit that we trust from top to bottom. They're also led by Philly's best position coach. Jeff Stoutland University continues to produce results.
