ARLINGTON, Texas — With Ron Brooks out, the plan was to have Malcolm Jenkins play the slot and have Jaylen Watkins come in at safety. 
 
Apparently the plan changed. 
 
Seventh-round rookie Jalen Mills was the Eagles' primary slot corner in Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. He played 47 snaps (60 percent) on Sunday night, while Watkins played just 15 snaps (19 percent). 
 
Jenkins continued his iron man streak, playing all 78 snaps. He was joined by Nolan Carroll, Rodney McLeod and Jordan Hicks. 
 
For the second straight week, Brandon Graham (65 snaps, 82 percent) led the way for Eagles defensive ends. Connor Barwin for the second week in a row saw his snaps drop. He was at 53 (68 percent) on Sunday. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz previously said he wanted to cut down Barwin's reps in an attempt to make him more productive. 
 
On offense, Nelson Agholor played more than any other receiver (71 snaps, 91 percent). To show for it, he had three catches on four targets for 25 yards. Dorial Green-Beckham's 51 snaps are the most he's had this season.
 
Darren Sproles, who became a workhorse on Sunday, led the way for running backs with 63 snaps, while Ryan Mathews had just eight. Kenjon Barner had six. Wendell Smallwood had just one snap and it wasn't a good one. He fumbled the ball away in the fourth quarter on his one offensive play. 
 
Sproles had 86 yards rushing, the most he’s had since 2011 and the fourth-best rushing performance of his career. 
 
Stefen Wisniewski played 69 snaps (88 percent) after the injury to Allen Barbre (9 snaps) early.
