EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – A look at snaps played by New England Patriots defensive players in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Giants (includes all penalties):

DEFENSIVE TACKLE:
Zach Moore – 65 of 65
Jerel Worthy – 45 of 65
Eathyn Manumaleuna – 44 of 65
L.T. Tuipulotu – 36 of 65

Quick-hit thoughts: Moore, the sixth-round pick from Concordia, was lining up in various spots and has shown improvement over the course of the preseason as a nice developmental prospect.

DEFENSIVE END/OUTSIDE LINEBACKER:
Jake Bequette – 50 of 65
Michael Buchanan – 29 of 65
Darius Fleming – 20 of 65

Quick-hit thoughts: Buchanan was knocked out of the game in the second half with an ankle/foot injury, but it appeared he could have re-entered if needed.

LINEBACKER (off-the-line):
Steve Beauharnais – 65 of 65
Ja'Gared Davis – 39 of 65
James Morris – 22 of 65
Chris White – 17 of 65

Quick-hit thoughts: Beauharnais, the 2013 seventh-round draft choice from Rutgers, shows leadership when on the field in leading the huddle.

CORNERBACK:
Brandon Browner – 49 of 65
Logan Ryan – 42 of 65
Daxton Swanson – 33 of 65
Malcolm Butler – 20 of 65
Alfonzo Dennard – 20 of 65
Quick-hit thoughts: Dennard got some work at safety, as the Patriots experimented a bit early in the game.

SAFETY:
Nate Ebner – 48 of 65
Tavon Wilson – 30 of 65
Duron Harmon – 25 of 65
Shamiel Gary – 16 of 65

Quick-hit thoughts: Ebner, whose role on the team is tied to special teams, showed up with some solid work on defense.
