To the consternation of many, Jets head coach Todd Bowles indicated he was not making lineup changes on defense in the days leading up to the Week 3 game against the Dolphins.

On why he is not considering any defensive lineup changes…
Because I have my starters.
As it turns out, Bowles did make a change. Darryl Roberts, who only had 7 defensive snaps in the first two weeks, played 60 on Sunday (95%). Juston Burris, who had over 30 snaps in both of the first two weeks, was limited to nine snaps.
Sometimes coaches don’t show their cards in public. This is just something to keep in mind the next time you are tempted to blow a fuse from something you hear in a press conference from Bowles or any other coach in the NFL.
Full defensive snap totals for the Jets are below.
