Playing-time breakdown

By Rich Cimini

Apologies for the delay, but travel and workload (mid-season report card) was the reason. Here's an unofficial breakdown of the Jets' playing time vs. the Bills (press-box view, allow margin for error):

RUNNING BACKS

John Conner ... 42/68 snaps
Shonn Greene ... 32
LaDainian Tomlinson ... 25
Joe McKnight ... 15

TIGHT ENDS

Dustin Keller ... 41/68 snaps
Matt Mulligan ... 37
Josh Baker ... 17
Vladimir Ducasse ... 4

WIDE RECEIVERS

Santonio Holmes ... 60/68 snaps
Plaxico Burress ... 46
Jeremy Kerley ... 17
Patrick Turner ... 9

Analysis: The Jets used a lot of two-back sets, resulting in Conner's heaviest workload of the season ... Keller played 27 snaps in the second half after being dazed in the first half on his ill-fated leap ... This marked a career high for Baker, an undrafted free agent. Obviously, his numbers soared in garbage time ... They changed the offensive line on the final five snaps, with Caleb Schlauderaff going in at left guard, LG Matt Slauson replacing Nick Mangold at center and Ducasse replacing RG Brandon Moore.
