Demario Davis and Erin Henderson have been splitting time at the will position recently, but this week it was Henderson who got the majority of the snaps there for the first time. Henderson produced well, with 11 tackles, including one for a loss.
However, David Harris was even more productive, as he had 14 tackles. That's the most he's had since 2009. Harris was also credited with two sacks - both on scrambles - and had a tackle for a loss and a pass break-up.
For Davis, who is now out of contract, he did stuff three runs, although two of those were late in the game when the Bills were trying to run out the clock. I'd imagine the fact that Rex Ryan went after Davis with good success in the previous Bills-Jets game factored into his reduction in playing time.
While Henderson produced well, he did get blocked out of three plays at the second level. Harris also overpursued a couple of times, got beaten on a third down conversion in coverage and was driven over the goal line on Buffalo's second touchdown.
Lorenzo Mauldin didn't produce much as a pass rusher this week, with the Bills often leaving six in to block against four. That sixth player was often an extra lineman. Mauldin did pressure Tyrod Taylor on one play, then recovered to make the tackle for a short gain as Taylor tried to scramble.
With Calvin Pace now out of contract, Todd Bowles has already said he hopes Mauldin develops into a full-time role next season. Pace's age showed on two plays where he was unblocked and could have had a sack, but was unable to make the tackle in the backfield. Pace did do a good job of setting the edge and that might be where the Jets lose something in the short term if Mauldin takes over that role.
Finally, Trevor Reilly and Jamari Lattimore once again did not get any reps this week and it's also worth noting that Taiwan Jones and Josh Martin have been on the active roster for the last few weeks but neither has been activated. Could any of these - or perhaps Mike Catapano, who is on injured reserve - have a future here?
Next up…The Jets' secondary had a disappointing day, especially in those crucial third down situations…
