Buffalo Bills @ NY Jets: Defensive Snap Counts

The Jets allowed the Bills to score 43 points against them and that's just one of the reasons why we find ourselves at 1-7 with the season lost.

So the Jets are 1-7, the season is lost and the wheels are falling off. Who played on the defensive side of the football that allowed the Bills to score 43 points? How often did they play? Following on from their performances, how often should they play going forward?

Antonio Allen CB 55 100%
Dawan Landry SS 55 100%
David Harris ILB 55 100%
Demario Davis ILB 54 98%
Darrin Walls CB 53 96%
Muhammad Wilkerson DE 53 96%
Sheldon Richardson DE 51 93%

This defense lacks of severe talent when you get past the defensive line. There is no other way to put it. You have Antonio Allen who gives up numerous touchdowns every week playing 100% of the snaps because there simply isn't anyone else. That's the sad state of affairs with the New York Jets. John Idzik has done a horrible job constructing this roster. He will face the media today and I sincerely hope he is grilled to the core about the lackluster job he did, especially on the defensive side of the football.

Calvin Pryor saw his game time drop from 91% to 69%, the most memorable play on the defensive side came from a wide receiver (Hakim) chasing down another receiver (Watkins) who was caught in a premature celebration. Otherwise you can throw on us at will. Leave your thoughts below.
