Analysis: With Chad Ochocinco out, receivers Tiquan Underwood and Julian Edelman split snaps as the third receiver.  However, Edelman received no targets and Underwood dropped his only one.  Something that stood out to me was the target to reception ratio for the Patriots tight ends: a perfect ten receptions on ten targets for the dynamic duo.  The only players to record a reception for the Patriots were receivers Wes Welker and Deion Branch and tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.  Also, it was pretty impressive that tight end had 59 yards after the catch on 62 total receiving yards.  Also of note, not a single running back was targeted in the receiving game.

Analysis: Shane Vereen played the second most snaps of any Patriots running back, with all of those snaps coming with the game pretty much in hand.  Vereen had just 18 total yards, but had 28 yards after contact.  BenJarvus Green-Ellis carried the ball on 14 of his 24 snaps.

Analysis: Matt Light, Logan Mankins, Ryan Wendell, and Brian Waters all played every snap for the Patriots on Sunday against the Eagles.  Sebastian Vollmer played just 44 snaps due to an injury sustained late in the first half.  Most of Nate Solder's first half snaps came as a third tight end, but he moved to right tackle in the second half when Vollmer went down.  Marcus Cannon played all five snaps on the Patriots' final series at right tackle.
