Celek played a lot of snaps, primarily as a run blocker. But he also caught four balls for 45 yards.

Josh Huff saw plenty of action, playing 32 percent of the snaps.

And after Sproles went out, Trey Burton was forced into action as the emergency running back. He carried five times for 10 yards.

Ryans was questionable coming in, but he played 80 percent of the snaps. I don’t remember him coming off the field at all until the fourth quarter when the game was out of hand.

Curry replaced Cedric Thornton in sub packages. Casey Matthews, Emmanuel Acho and Marcus Smith II rotated in at inside linebacker.

Boykin saw a season high in snaps with the Giants often in 11 personnel.

Brandon Graham played more snaps than usual, although I think that was because he was on the field at the end of the game when Nassib was quarterbacking. I will be able to confirm after I re-watch.

GUESSING THE LINE: EAGLES (+1)

I think the Eagles will go to Arizona in two weeks as one-point underdogs. The Cardinals are 4-1 and get the Raiders in Week 7. Three of the Eagles’ next four games come against NFC opponents currently in first place (including ties) in their respective divisions: the Cardinals, Panthers and Packers.

Ice up. We’ve got some good football ahead of us after the bye.
