Let’s take a look at playing time totals for the Jets in Monday’s win over the Detroit Lions.
On the offensive side of the ball, the thing that stands out to me is the heavy usage of tight ends. This is no surprise because it fits in with Jeremy Bates’ offense and because the Jets played this game without a fullback. Still, it is striking to see a team with so little at the tight end spot have three players in for at least 48% of the snaps and four in for at least 25%. Who can complain, though? The offense did just fine.
Full offensive totals are below.
On the other side of the ball, Doug Middleton filled in for Marcus Maye and never came off the field. Brandon Copeland and Frankie Luvu got plenty of opportunities to fill the team’s void at edge rusher. Of the two, Luvu was more noticeably effective.
