Analysis: Rex Ryan said Friday that Scott should’ve played more in the game. That would’ve been difficult because the Jets spent a lot of the game in the nickel and dime packages, and Scott no longer has a significant role in those personnel groupings ... The Patriots used a lot of three-receiver packages, which explains why the Jets used a lot of nickel and dime. They wanted their most athletic players on the field, yet it's curious why Coples didn’t see more action.
