By Rich Cimini

A breakdown of the defensive snaps (based on a total of 61):

DEFENSIVE LINE
Muhammad Wilkerson: 61 snaps/100 percent
Mike DeVito: 40 snaps/66 percent
Quinton Coples: 27 snaps/44 percent
Sione Po'uha: 19 snaps/31 percent
Kenrick Ellis: 16 snaps/26 percent

LINEBACKER
• David Harris: 61 snaps/100 percent
• Calvin Pace: 61 snaps/100 percent
• Garrett McIntyre: 43 snaps/70 percent
• Bart Scott: 40 snaps/66 percent
• Bryan Thomas: 5 snaps/8 percent
• Demario Davis: 2 snaps/3 percent

SECONDARY
• Antonio Cromartie: 61 snaps/100 percent
• Yeremiah Bell: 61 snaps/100 percent
LaRon Landry: 61 snaps/100 percent
• Kyle Wilson: 56 snaps/92 percent
• Darrin Walls: 22 snaps/36 percent
• Antonio Allen: 7 snaps/8 percent
• Ellis Lankster: 1 snap/5 percent

Analysis: Wilkerson played every snap for the second straight game -- on a short week, no less. That's impressive stuff for a defensive lineman, especially at this stage of the season, when guys are beat up. ... Lankster (concussion) was replaced by Walls, who was a disaster -- two third-down penalties that sustained drives. ... Thomas, in what may have been his final home game as a Jet, didn't last long. He's still playing with a strained pectoral muscle.
