An analysis of the snap counts from Sunday's 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins:
OFFENSE (Based on 55 snaps)
Offensive analysis: The mystery here is Holmes, who was cleared to played despite a nagging hamstring injury. He played two snaps early in the game and was done. Afterward, he indicated he was on a pitch count. That could be the shortest starting appearance in history. ... Winslow seemed perplexed by his lack of playing time (31 percent). In fact, he ended up playing almost the same as last week (33 percent). His frustration apparently has been building for weeks. ... Obviously, it was a season-high snap count for Simms, who played only 29 in his first two mop-up outings. ... With Holmes down, Hill became an every-down player -- again.
DEFENSE (Based on 81 snaps)
Defensive analysis: Milliner was benched again, the third time he didn't finish a game. At first, Walls got the call, but he was replaced by Lankster, who played a season-high 15 snaps. You know things are bad when he's at cornerback; he played only 14 snaps in the first 11 games. ... It was a gutty, if not effective performance by Cromartie, who played nearly the entire game with an injured hip. ... Cunningham was involved in a sub-defense package. ... Rex Ryan emptied the bench late in the game, resulting in lower-than-usual snap counts for several starters.
