An examination of the snap counts from Sunday's 26-20 win over the New Orleans Saints:
OFFENSE (Based on 61 snaps):
Quarterback -- Geno Smith 61.
Offensive analysis: Because of injuries, they had to do some serious juggling at wide receiver and tight end. Salas, in his Jets debut, played 46 percent of the snaps because of the second-quarter elbow injury to Kerley. That also resulted in more playing time for Nelson, who logged a season-high 87 percent. ... It's interesting that the coaches preferred Sudfeld over Reuland in a run-heavy game plan. Sudfeld isn't much of a blocker. What does that say about Reuland? ... Hill played 85 percent and was targeted only once -- no catches.
DEFENSE (Based on 74 snaps):
Defensive analysis: Because of injuries to McIntyre (knee) and Allen (head), the depth was tested at outside linebacker and safety. Sapp and Davis saw rare action. Jarrett had a bigger role than usual, and Bush played on defense for only the fifth time. ... One week after getting benched in the second quarter, Milliner came back with his first (almost) complete game since Week 1. Baby steps.
