Eagles snap counts: Jason Kelce's impressive streak comes to an end

When center Jason Kelce was taken out of Sunday's game along with Carson Wentz for the final nine snaps, a pretty impressive streak came to an end. 

Before that, Kelce had played 3,345 consecutive snaps. 

He was taken out after 61 snaps in the Eagles' 33-10 win over the lowly 49ers. 

It was a streak that dated back to 2014, when he was taken out for the final six snaps in a blowout win over the Panthers. Before playing the first 550 snaps of this season, Kelce didn't miss a play in all of 2015 or 2016.

Here's how his streak broke down by year: 

2014: 506 snaps
2015: 1,156 snaps
2016: 1,133 snaps
2017: 550 snaps

After Kelce was taken out, Stefen Wisniewski slid to center and Chance Warmack took over at left guard. 

Streaks aside, Marcus Johnson played a career-high 21 snaps (30 percent), while Mack Hollins played a career-high 18 snaps (26 percent) on Sunday afternoon. 

It seems like the Eagles want to give them more chances because they have been performing well. 

On the flip side of that, Torrey Smith played a season-low 32 snaps. In each of the last two games, he has just one target and zero catches. He did, however, draw a big defensive pass interference against the 49ers that put the Eagles on the 1-yard line. 

If it seemed like Wendell Smallwood was barely on the field against San Fran, you're right. He had just 13 snaps (19 percent). LeGarrette Blount had 35 of 70, Corey Clement had 19 and Kenjon Barner had four. 

On defense, Patrick Robinson played just 18 snaps before leaving with a concussion. In his absence, Dexter McDougle played 32 snaps (48 percent). His previous season high was seven. He actually played two more than Rasul Douglas. Jaylen Watkins chipped in with 27. 

The other corner numbers were high because the Eagles used a dime defense at times with Jenkins acting like a linebacker. 

Mychal Kendricks played 52 snaps (79 percent) in his return from a hamstring injury. 

Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod and Nigel Bradham didn't leave the field on defense. They played all 66.
