LOS ANGELES — It was aided by Josh Adams’ missing time Sunday night while he was being evaluated for a concussion and later getting treated for a back injury, but the Eagles found some real balance in the run game in Sunday night’s 30-23 win over the Rams at the Coliseum. 

Adams, Wendell Smallwood and Darren Sproles played around the same amount of snaps and all were productive in their own ways: 

• Josh Adams: 24 snaps (38 percent), 15 carries, 28 yards, 1 TD

• Wendell Smallwood: 20 snaps (31 percent), 10 carries, 48 yards, 2 TD

• Darren Sproles: 20 snaps (31 percent), 3 carries, 30 yards

It seemed like Adams was clearly still the lead back, but the Eagles weren’t afraid to ride Smallwood once he started to get warmed up. With two games left in this regular season, this was probably a glimpse into what we might see the rest of the way. 

Other offensive snap count notes: 

• Alshon Jeffery had an outstanding game and didn’t leave the field. He played all 64 offensive snaps and had his best game as an Eagle, catching eight passes for 160 yards. 

• Jason Peters missed three snaps, but aside from that, the starting OL and Nick Foles played all 64 snaps. 

• Dallas Goedert played 39 snaps (61 percent) and Golden Tate played 22 (34 percent). Goedert had just two catches for 12 yards, but one of them went for a big first down. Tate had five catches for 43 yards. Tate still isn’t as involved as he probably should be, but at least he had a little impact. 

 

• Nelson Agholor played 63 snaps and had just one catch for eight yards. He was about to catch that 50-yard deep ball, but Jeffery beat him to it. 

Defensive snap count notes: 

• Malcolm Jenkins, Corey Graham, Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox and Nigel Bradham played all 76 snaps. Maddox had missed the previous three games but started at outside corner. 

Jenkins has now played 928 of 929 snaps this season. 

• Cre’Von LeBlanc played 74 of 76 defensive snaps as the nickel corner because the Rams rarely leave 11 personnel (three receivers). 

• Michael Bennett (61 snaps) led the way for the defensive ends. Brandon Graham played 57 snaps, Chris Long played 51 and newcomer Daeshon Hall played nine but got some on an early drive.
