Analysis: Rex Ryan said last week that certain defensive players would have expanded role, and we saw that with Smith, McIntyre and Sapp, who was called up from the practice squad. They deployed Smith in a "Big Nickel" look, with three safeties. ... Lankster got more playing time, too, but that was because of an early knee injury to Trufant. ... Scott returned after a one-game toe injury and was involved in a time-share with Davis, who played mostly on passing downs.
