Chris Ivory got less carries than Stevan Ridley in yesterday's season-ending loss to the Buffalo Bills. It was a curious decision for a number of reasons, most notably because Ivory is a more effective runner. It was also a bad weather day where the passing game was struggling. A heavy dose of Ivory might have been what the doctor ordered.
Where the Jets trying to protect Ivory because he was banged up? The snap counts suggest this was not the case. Ivory was actually on the field more than Ridley. The Jets just didn't want to give Ivory the ball for whatever reason.
The full snap counts from yesterday's game are below.
