Jets defensive formations last Sunday

The Jets faced a total of 58 defensive "plays" (i.e. plays that counted): 32 passes, 26 runs, and 0 sacks. They lined up as follows, according to my expert film review.

Base Package: 10

Nickel: 37

Dime: 8

Quarter: 1

Goal line: 2

To break it down more specificially:

3-4: 3

4-3: 7

4-2-5: 20

3-3-5: 17

3-2-6: 6

2-3-6: 2

3-1-7: 1

6-5 goal line set (I just counted down linemen and stand up players): 2

I was a little surprised that we only used the base package 10 times while being in the nickel or dime package 45, however the Bills used almost exclusively a spread formation. Something the Bills also did often was a "stack" or "bunch" formation, which the Jets countered beautifully with matchup zone. The communication was very good all game, which is encouraging because stacks can be confusing at times. I also tracked how our pass defense did against each pass, I should have those up soon after I compile and format them.
