David Harris: C
This was a relatively quiet game for Harris, who had just five tackles all game with one for a loss. Harris was not a liability in the run game by any stretch, but he did not make nearly as many splash plays as usual and deserves some blame for Rob Gronkowski's big day.
Demario Davis: C+
Davis deserves some credit for his nine tackles, but he was not as stout in coverage as the Jets hoped he would be. He was responsible for most of Rob Gronkowski's production, as the Patriots took advantage whenever he was not covered by Antonio Allen.
Calvin Pace: C
Pace had an average game on all fronts. He recorded just three tackles (although they were all behind the line of scrimmage) and was responsible for not setting the edge on one of Stevan Ridley's touchdown runs. He was also a non-factor as a pass-rusher, which is to be expected.
Quinton Coples: C
I give Coples credit for playing through his surgically repaired ankle, but it was more evident than ever that he is simply not healthy enough to be getting as much playing time as he has gotten in recent weeks.
Presumably because of his bad ankle, Coples is having a difficult time covering speed to power while rushing the passer, rendering him almost useless. While he was able to stumble into a strip-sack, he looked as if he was laboring just to get through each play.
Rex Ryan would be wise to let Coples' ankle rest back to full health over the next few weeks.
