It has been a long, long time since the New York Giants had one of those "empty the bench because we are winning" kind of games. That, however, is what Thursday's 45-14 victory over the Washington Redskins turned into. Let's peruse the snap counts from the game.

Offense

Backup quarterback Ryan Nassib saw the first regular-season snaps of his NFL career, getting in for the final seven plays. Offensive linemen Brandon Mosley, Adam Snyder and Dallas Reynolds and wide receiver Julian Talley also got seven snaps.

Tight end Adrien Robinson played 15 snaps, more than he had in two-plus seasons, and caught his first NFL pass.

Corey Washington played 20 snaps, but was never targeted.

Peyton Hillis played eight snaps and carried the ball on every one of them, gaining 31 yards.

Defense

Prince Amukamara was the only Giants defender to play all 55 snaps. Safety Quintin Demps played 54 in his first start.

Damontre Moore played 17 snaps and recorded his first NFL sack.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie left the game briefly with a thigh injury and played 41 snaps.
