OFFENSE (Based on 62 snaps)
Quarterback -- Geno Smith 62.
Offensive analysis: Holmes was on the field for virtually the entire game, giving the Panthers' defensive backs plenty of trash-talking oppottunities. ... This was another modest snap count for Winslow, who was targeted only once. ... Howard, who left briefly because of a leg injury, missed his first snaps of the season. ... Prior to Sunday, Richardson had played two snaps on offense, but this was the first time he touched the ball -- twice. He became the first defensive lineman in Jets history to score on a run or reception. ... Hakim, called up from the practice squad last week, made his NFL debut.
DEFENSE (Based on 64 snaps)
Defensive analysis: Cromartie played almost a full game despite coming off a concussion. ... Allen's playing time shrunk again. They could have used him more often against tight end Greg Olsen, a big factor in the passing game. ... Ellis played more than usual, as the Jets beefed up to stop the Panthers' running game. It didn't work.
