Odell Beckham had no idea how many snaps he would play Sunday in his NFL debut against the Atlanta Falcons. The New York Giants rookie wide receiver ended up playing 35 very productive snaps and catching his first touchdown pass in a 30-20 victory.

"Coming into the game, I didn't know how much I was going to play. I really didn't know," Beckham said after the game.

He certainly played enough -- and accomplished enough -- for the Giants to get excited about the possibilities going forward.

Here are some other notes from Sunday's snaps counts.

Offense

With Rashad Jennings injured, Andre Williams played 36 snaps and carried the ball 20 times. Peyton Hills saw his first meaningful action, playing six snaps.

With Beckham taking a large number of snaps, wide receiver Preston Parker started the game but was in on only 17 plays.

Adrien Robinson got two snaps, catching a pass on one of them.

Defense

Jacquian Williams, Jameel McClain and Antrel Rolle played all 72 snaps. Quintin Demps and Prince Amukamara played 71.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, in and out of the lineup with a troublesome ankle, played 49 snaps. Trumaine McBride played 52 snaps and Zack Bowman filled in for DRC on 15 snaps.
