Giants-Eagles Final Score: What can we learn from the snap counts?

Snap counts summary.

Rich Schultz

The snap counts are, largely, meaningless from the New York Giants' 27-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. Playing time is always skewed in a blowout. Still, we review these the day after every game. So, let's see if there is anything we can learn.

-- Odell Beckham Jr. started and played 56 of 64 snaps. With Victor Cruz out for the season, Beckham will likely almost never come off the field the rest of the way.

-- Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis each played 31 snaps. It seems likely the Giants wanted Williams to play more, but that wasn't happening with them so far behind.

-- Preston Parker played 24 snaps. Best guess is that Parker takes over in the slot. The Giants could put Beckham there, but that would hurt them on the outside.

-- Fullback Henry Hynoski played only seven snaps.

-- Ryan Nassib played nine snaps and went 4-for-5 passing, his first NFL regular-season throws.

-- Jacquian Williams, who had been playing nearly every snap in recent weeks, played only 40 of 72 snaps. I find that odd since Williams is athletic and you would think the Giants would want him on the field to combat Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy.

-- Jon Beason played 56 snaps and Jameel McClain 48. Mark Herzlich did not play at all.

-- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played only 32 snaps, leaving with back spasms that might be related to his ankle and hamstring injuries.

-- Damontre Moore played 17 snaps.
