Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, we looked at the offensive snap counts for the Miami Dolphins after their Week 15 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Today, we turn our attention to the defense.

The Miami Dolphins beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-3 on Sunday, putting together a solid team effort for the entire 60 minutes. The offense moved the ball well all day, while the defense stopped the Jaguars on fourth down three different times within the red zone, holding Jacksonville to just an opening drive field goal.

The Dolphins were on defense for 57 snaps Sunday. Here's the breakdown, by position group:

Thoughts: Koa Misis was inactive for the game with his ankle injury. Kevin Burnett missed some playing time due to an injury, with Jason Trusnik serving as the primary replacement. Jonathan Freeny and Josh Kaddu also saw some snaps this week.
