A breakdown of the Jets' offensive snaps (based on a total of 65):

QUARTERBACK

Mark Sanchez: 62 snaps/95 percent

Tim Tebow: 3 snaps/5 percent

RUNNING BACK

Lex Hilliard: 31 snaps/48 percent

Chaz Schilens: 37 snaps/57 percent

Antonio Cromartie: 6 snaps/9 percent

Analysis: The headline here is that Tebow played only three snaps, tying a season low. He also had three in Week 2 against the Steelers. ... With Kerley slowed by injuries, Gates' playing time soared. ... Cromartie played a season-high six snaps on offense. ... With a healthy backfield, the Jets were able to rotate their backs, with Hilliard, Powell and Greene receiving significant playing time. ... Interesting to note that Smith saw 14 snaps as an extra blocker. The player he was traded for, Wayne Hunter, who plays the same role for the Rams, didn't play at all on offense.
