Earlier today, we took a look at the snap counts for the Miami Dolphins offense against the New York Jets. Now, it is time to turn around and take a look at the defense, with a run down of the snaps played, as well as the percentage of overall defensive snaps, for each player from the game. The article ends with the running tally of the season snap percentages of every player who has taken at least one snap on defense this year for the team.

The Dolphins defense started off slowly against the Jets, allowing a field goal, a touchdown, and a field goal on New York’s first three possessions. They eventually found their rhythm, forcing two punts, two interceptions, and a field goal in the next five Jets drives. The Dolphins defense included the Bobby McCain and Jordan Phillips interceptions, two sacks from Cameron Wake, and a sack from Ndamukong Suh.
