-Third-round rookie WR Anthony Schwartz played in 31 of the offense's 59 total snaps in his NFL debut. He made the most of them, too, and caught three receptions for 69 yards, including a 44-yard deep ball that sent his NFL career off to a great start.

-Jedrick Wills Jr. played in 20 snaps Sunday before suffering an ankle injury — he’s currently listed as “day-to-day” from head coach Kevin Stefanski. Eight-year veteran OL Chris Hubbard filled in at left tackle and performed well, handling the remaining 39 offensive snaps in his first game back since a Week 15 season-ending knee injury last season.

-Defensively, first-round rookie CB Greg Newsome II was on the field for 63 of the defense's 65 total snaps. Denzel Ward also took 63 snaps.
