OFFENSE (Based on 58 snaps)
Offensive analysis: This marked the second straight loss that Smith finished the game on the bench. For his sake, that's a trend that needs to stop. ... Holmes, returning from a five-game hamstring injury, was eased back with a 53-percent play time. ... Winslow, who was upset with his playing time before his four-game suspension, can't be happy that he played only 19 percent of the snaps. ... Richardson made his second appearance as an extra blocker in a goal-line situation.
DEFENSE (Based on 67 snaps)
Defensive analysis: The news here is that Reed, despite only two practices, started and played 88 percent of the snaps. He replaced Allen, who was limited to a season-low in snaps. The coaches can talk all day about Allen's promise, but actions speak louder than words. They made him an afterthought. It wasn't a season-low for Jarrett, but it was well below his average. ... The Jets, once known for using their entire bench, played most of the game with 13 players in the primary rotation. They didn't play much nickel, which accounts for the low snap count for Wilson. ... Because of the injury to Garrett McIntyre, Coples and Pace had a bigger workload than usual.
