Darron Lee and Demario Davis Never Leave the Field: Jets Defensive Snap Totals vs. Raiders

Sunday was not a good day for the Jets middle linebacker duo. Darron Lee and Demario Davis had a second straight rough game to start 2016.

The Jets sure gave them opportunities, though. Davis and Lee were among the Jets defenders who played 100% of the snaps from scrimmage on that side of the ball. Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye, and Morris Claiborne joined them, but Davis and Lee were front and center for an ugly defensive effort that involved a pair of 40+ yard touchdown runs in the second half.

Something is eventually going to have to give. The Jets cannot keep running out linebackers who are performing so poorly. These types of performances get players benched. The benchings didn't happen Week 2, though. Davis and Lee never came off the field.
