Eagles snap counts: Malcolm Jenkins finally takes a break

Eagles snap counts: Malcolm Jenkins finally takes a break

The Eagles are winning by too much and it's screwing up all cool snap count stats I had. 

Last week, Jason Kelce was taken out of a blowout, which ended his consecutive snaps played streak at 3,345 (see story)

This week, it was Malcolm Jenkins who took a seat. Late in the 51-23 beating of the Broncos, Jenkins was taken out of the game. He finished after playing 54 of 64 possible snaps. He hadn't missed a single defensive snap on the season before Sunday — 514 of 514. 

Jenkins missed more defensive snaps on Sunday (10) than he had in his previous three and a half years in Philly (eight in 56 games). Jenkins missed just one total defensive snap in all of 2016. So it was a pretty well-deserved break. Corey Graham played some extra snaps toward the end of the game at safety for Jenkins. 

Jalen Mills was the only defensive player to play all 64 snaps. Rodney McLeod played 63; he came out for a play because of an equipment issue. 

On offense, Corey Clement led all running backs in snaps with 28. He was followed by Jay Ajayi (17), LeGarrette Blount (16), Wendell Smallwood (6) and Kenjon Barner (2). All five running backs were active and four got a carry; only Barner didn't. 

Mack Hollins saw a big jump in his snaps. He played a career-high 30, while Torrey Smith played just one more, 31. Marcus Johnson also got 20 snaps. Over the last few weeks, Smith's playing time has decreased as Hollins and Johnson have been given more opportunities. 

Without Zach Ertz, Brent Celek got the start and played a season-high 54 snaps and Trey Burton played a season-high 47 snaps. Both had good production. Celek had three catches for 39 yards and Burton had two catches for 41 yards and a touchdown.

Sahl's Father Son Farm designs 'Philly Special' corn maze

It seems like nobody can get enough of the "Philly Special."

The Eagles ran a similar trick play in a pivotal moment in Week 1; a local high school pulled it off; the Browns appeared to copy the Eagles Thursday night; a creative couple put the play on their wedding cake. It’s everywhere.

You can now add corn mazes to that list.

Sahl’s Father Son Farm in Galloway Township, New Jersey, has designed a corn maze in the shape of the Philly Special. The design is pretty incredible and according to Jeremy Sahl, one of the owners of the farm, it comes with the Eagles’ stamp of approval.

“We were hollering and hopping out of our chairs and jumping around when someone shouted something about putting the Eagles’ Super Bowl win into the corn maze this year,” Sahl said. “I mean, it took some time to finalize the design process, but after corresponding with the Eagles for a while, this is what we ended up with. We’re really proud of it!”

The corn maze is open to visitors starting Sunday.
