A look at how the Jets divided the playing time on defense in Sunday's win over the Bills (based on 63 snaps):

DEFENSIVE LINE

Muhammad Wilkerson -- 53

Quinton Coples -- 32

Kenrick Ellis -- 30

Mike DeVito -- 27

Marcus Dixon -- 16.

LINEBACKER

David Harris -- 63

Calvin Pace -- 60

Bart Scott -- 54

Aaron Maybin -- 16

Garrett McIntyre -- 15

Josh Mauga -- 11

Bryan Thomas -- 9

SECONDARY

Yeremiah Bell -- 63

LaRon Landry -- 63

Antonio Cromartie -- 59

Kyle Wilson -- 54

Darrelle Revis -- 50

Isaiah Trufant -- 9

Ellis Lankster -- 9

Analysis: The blowout, plus injuries to Thomas and Revis, allowed some of the backups to get more playing time than expected ... Coples, the No. 1 pick, and DeVito basically split their playing time ... Interesting that Scott didn't come off the field; he has played his way back into the good graces ... It was a surprisingly heavy workload for Ellis, considering the Jets were in nickel and dime packages so often against the Bills' spread offense.
