Braylon Edwards: 41 snaps/61 percent
Mardy Gilyard: 23 snaps/34 percent
Clyde Gates: 16 snaps/24 percent
Chaz Schilens: 10 snaps/15 percent

Analysis: Edwards arrived last Wednesday, practiced for the first time Thursday, started the game and played the second-highest among of snaps among the wide receivers. Yep, that about sums up the state of the receiving corps. ... Curiously, Schilens started and played his lowest snap total since Week 2. He didn't appear to be injured. ... After not playing in three games, Tebow played an entire series (five plays) for the first time this season. They picked a weird time for Tebow time. ... Backup LG Vladimir Ducasse received more time than he had been in recent weeks. He played 20 snaps (30 percent), compared to 47 snaps (70 percent) for starter Matt Slauson. ... WR Jordan White was active but didn't play. Rex Ryan opted to dress a sixth receiver instead of a third quarterback, Greg McElroy.
