Playing-time breakdown: Week 15

December, 16, 2013
A look at the snap counts from the New York Jets' 30-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers:

OFFENSE (Based on 62 snaps)

Quarterback -- Geno Smith 62.

Running back -- Chris Ivory 31, Bilal Powell 29, Tommy Bohanon 19, Sheldon Richardson 2, Alex Green 2.

Wide receivers -- Santonio Holmes 53, David Nelson 46, Jeremy Kerley 33, Greg Salas 9, Saalim Hakim 5.

Tight end -- Jeff Cumberland 53, Kellen Winslow 17, Zach Sudfeld 8.

Offensive line -- D'Brickashaw Ferguson 62, Brian Winters 62, Nick Mangold 62, Willie Colon 62, Austin Howard 60, Vladimir Ducasse 5.

Offensive analysis: Holmes was on the field for virtually the entire game, giving the Panthers' defensive backs plenty of trash-talking oppottunities. ... This was another modest snap count for Winslow, who was targeted only once. ... Howard, who left briefly because of a leg injury, missed his first snaps of the season. ... Prior to Sunday, Richardson had played two snaps on offense, but this was the first time he touched the ball -- twice. He became the first defensive lineman in Jets history to score on a run or reception. ... Hakim, called up from the practice squad last week, made his NFL debut.

DEFENSE (Based on 64 snaps)

Line -- Muhammad Wilkerson 61, Sheldon Richardson 51, Damon Harrison 39, Kenrick Ellis 21, Leger Douzable 15.

Linebacker -- David Harris 64, Quinton Coples 64, DeMario Davis 54, Calvin Pace 48, Garrett McIntyre 9.

Secondary -- Dawan Landry 64, Antonio Cromartie 58, Dee Milliner 58, Ed Reed 52, Kyle Wilson 19, Jaiquawn Jarrett 12, Antonio Allen 10, Josh Bush 4, Darrin Walls 1.

Defensive analysis: Cromartie played almost a full game despite coming off a concussion. ... Allen's playing time shrunk again. They could have used him more often against tight end Greg Olsen, a big factor in the passing game. ... Ellis played more than usual, as the Jets beefed up to stop the Panthers' running game. It didn't work.
