New York Giants LB Michael Boley played in only 49 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 15 and only 25 percent of the snaps in Week 16, with New York using a 4-4-3 alignment in the first half against the Baltimore Ravens. LBs Chase Blackburn, Jacquian Williams, Mark Herzlich and Spencer Paysinger all played ahead of Boley.

"It had been a cumulative health thing; he was having some issues for three weeks that we felt was not allowing him to play the way that he's capable of playing and that's the reason we went into the game with, again, these different personnel combinations."
