Giants vs. Eagles: Snap counts, Pro Football Focus numbers

New, comments

Looking at the snap count data and Pro Football Focus numbers to see what we can learn about the New York Giants' 19-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

In reviewing the New York Giants' 19-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, let's look at the snap count data and Prod Football Focus grades to see what we can learn. Also, let's see if PFF agrees with our 'Kudos & Wet Willies.'

Pro Football Focus grades

Offense (Best)

Victor Cruz + 2.5
Ahmad Bradshaw +2.4 ... most of that (+1.6) came from pass blocking, not his running
Domenik Hixon +2.1
Will Beatty +2.0 ... I have to watch the tape, but PFF gave Beatty a +3.4 for his pass blocking
Eli Manning + 1.3
Sean Locklear +1.0 ... PFF grades Locklear at +1.9 for pass blocking, again a bit surprising

Offense (Worst)

Kevin Boothe -5.1
Ramses Barden -1.1 ... Much of that from the game-ending penalty

Defense (Best)

Rocky Bernard +4.6 ... Two hurries and a hit on Michael Vick helped his grade
Linval Joseph +2.3 ... Interesting, since the official stats credit Joseph with only one assisted tackle
Stevie Brown +2.2 ... I thought he had played well, and this is a good sign if the Giants have to continue to run him out there

Defense (Worst)

Corey Webster -1.8 ... PFF gives his pass coverage a -2.3
Marvin Austin -1.2
Kenny Phillips -1.1 ... not fair, since he barely played

Snap count stuff

- Domenik Hixon played 62 of the Giants' 68 offensive snaps (91 percent)
- Ahmad Bradshaw played 58 snaps and Andre Brown played only nine
- Stevie Brown played 59 snaps on defense, and never hurt the Giants
- Marvin Austin played five snaps ... and accumulated the second-worst defensive grade.
