In the win over the Giants, Eagles rookie John Hightower saw his lowest snap count (30 snaps) since Week 2 with the (brief) return of Desean Jackson at wide receiver.
Hightower has a very defined job to this point — win deep.
His average depth of target of 21.8 yards led all wide receivers coming into Week 7, and he brought down another Wentz bomb in the fourth quarter.
Jalen Hurts continues to serve as primarily a decoy or a read-option quarterback when in the game.
He had attempted just one pass coming into the week on 21 offensive snaps, and that total didn’t move up after four more official snaps tonight, though he did attempt a pass that was nullified on a two-point conversion attempt.
