Snap counts: Long debuts, Kearse fills in

By Matthew Coller

The Minnesota Vikings lost their first game of the year in Philadelphia on Sunday. Here are some observations from snap counts:

– Jayron Kearse took over after Andrew Sendejo suffered an ankle injury returning an interception and played all 52 snaps after Sendejo went out.

– The Vikings used more three linebacker sets than they have all year as Chad Greenway was on the field for 24 snaps.

– Cordarrelle Patterson is now a full-time receiver and Charles Johnson is more or less out of the lineup.

– Jake Long saw only 13 snaps in his debut
