Week 2 vs. NE
Rushing: 2 / 28 / 0
Receiving: 4 / 22 / 0 on 4 targets
Washington makes a nice change of pace back for the Jets. He is a great sideline to sideline runner which can also be a curse. In one instance, he ran the opposite direction to avoid tackles and ended up being swarmed by Patriots defenders for large loss.
Week 3 vs. SD
Rushing: 1 / -1 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 20 / 0 on 2 targets
Washington had a 94 yard kick return and almost scored, but was tackled on the three yard line in the second quarter. He had only one carry in the game and had two catches for 20 yards.
Week 4 vs. ARI
Rushing: 7 / 26 / 0
Receiving: 4 / 17 / 0 on 5 targets
Washington ran the ball seven times for 26 yards and added a successful two point conversion run on the ground, and he caught four passes for 17 yards in the passing game on five targets.
Week 6 vs. CIN
Rushing: 5 / 7 / 0
Receiving: 4 / 22 / 0 on 5 targets
Washington played a complementary role and used his speed and vision catching passes out of the backfield. He caught four of his five targets and was a vital part in moving the chains and keeping the offense moving downfield.
Week 7 vs. OAK
Rushing: 3 / 19 / 1
Receiving: 3 / 21 / 0 on 4 targets
Washington made the most of his limited touches, scoring the Jets only touchdown of the game on a powerful 11 yard run in the fourth quarter. His touchdown brought the Jets to within three as Washington fought through two defenders to get the ball across the goal line. Washington was also used effectively in the passing game as he caught three of his four targets for 21 yards.
Week 8 vs. KC
Rushing: 3 / 67 / 1
Receiving: 3 / 34 / 1 on 4 targets
Leon Washington was used in all parts of the game. The first TD was a short screen to Washington and he bobbed and weaved to the endzone. In a passing situation the Jets called a run play against the nickel and it created a 60 yard TD. Washington came close to two scores on kickoff returns. One return was a little comical as Connor Barth jumped on his back and Washington carried him until someone caught the two to finish him off. Washington pumped his legs and worked hard to get every yard he earned. It was a very impressive performance.
Week 9 vs. BUF
Rushing: 7 / 13 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 42 / 0 on 3 targets
Leon Washington again provided the spark for the Jets, making his presence felt on the second play of the game as he took a screen pass 40 yards into Bills territory and setting up the first three points of the game for New York. He totaled 55 yards on nine touches and was the clear second option running on the ground for the Jets.
Week 10 vs. STL
Rushing: 12 / 54 / 0
Receiving: 4 / 14 / 0 on 5 targets
Washington was active in the game and was targeted in the red zone on a pair of occasions. Most of his yards came late in the game with Clemens under centre. He also received a carry in the red zone early on. It was a draw play and he got absolutely stoned on the play. It may have been the only Rams high light.
Week 11 vs. NE
Rushing: 5 / 18 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 17 / 1 on 4 targets
Washington made the most of his limited action in this game. He was targeted just the four times and only ran the ball five times. On his touchdown, he lined up as a wide receiver and was matched up on a linebacker. Jones caught the wide receiver screen pass and sped to the end zone from ten yards out. This capped an impressive opening drive for the Jets. Washington also had a huge impact on the D/ST by taking a kick off 92 yards for an impressive score.
Week 12 vs. TEN
Rushing: 8 / 82 / 2
Receiving: 1 / 2 / 0 on 2 targets
Washington was again used in a reserved role, and again made a huge impact with his limited touches. He turned nine touches into 84 yards and two deadly touchdowns as he provided the big play when the Jets needed it most. It was Washington who took a fourth quarter handoff and rolled 61 yards to the end zone, clinching the victory for New York.
Week 13 vs. DEN
Rushing: 2 / 4 / 0
Receiving: 3 / 60 / 0 on 5 targets
Washington did not get many carries, and did most of his damage receiving the ball, all in one drive. Late in the third quarter, Washington caught a screen pass and made the most of his good blocking, using a couple of good cutting moves to pick up 34 yards on the play. The next two plays, Washington was again thrown to on screen passes, taking each for 14 and 12 yard gains. He finished with 60 yards receiving.
Week 14 vs. SF
Rushing: 1 / 1 / 0
Receiving: 6 / 31 / 0 on 6 targets
Washington was used as a screen pass catcher on most of the offensive plays he was in on, and showed his quickness in making his defender miss, but he was usually stopped for short gains thanks to a swarming 49ers' defense. Washington scored a touchdown on a 99 yard kickoff return, but it was nullified due to a penalty by one of his teammates.
Week 15 vs. BUF
Rushing: 1 / 47 / 1
Receiving: 1 / 7 / 0 on 3 targets
At the end of the second quarter, Washington took a handoff and showed off his amazing speed, making a nice cut and going the distance for a 47 yard touchdown. It was his only carry of the game. He also added one reception for seven yards.
Week 17 vs. MIA
Rushing: 10 / 60 / 1
Receiving: 6 / 29 / 0 on 6 targets
Washington received a heavier workload and proved he can handle it as converted 16 touches into 89 yards and a score. He ran well and was a dual threat out of the backfield, catching six passes. His touchdown run came on a tough ten yard run as he used his speed and open field moves to punch in New York's second touchdown of the game.
