Week 1 vs. DEN
Receiving: 1 / 3 / 0 on 1 targets
Foschi was a relief valve receiver for Carson Palmer on a 2nd and 10 play out of the shotgun. He didn't do much with the pass, only taking it for 3 yards.
Week 4 vs. CLE
Receiving: 3 / 44 / 0 on 3 targets
Foschi, like fellow TE Dan Coats, saw an increased number of pass targets against Cleveland. Two of the three targets were standard checkdown plays, but Foschi was able to get open for a long gain on a seam route late in the fourth quarter and showed good hands making the catch.
Week 6 vs. HOU
Receiving: 1 / 6 / 0 on 3 targets
Foschi saw three targets but was used mostly as a blocking tight end. He fumbled at the end of his lone reception.
Week 7 vs. CHI
Receiving: 1 / 3 / 1 on 1 targets
Things were going so good for the Bengals that even a journeyman TE like Foschi found the end zone in the first half.
Week 9 vs. BAL
Receiving: 2 / 32 / 0 on 3 targets
Foschi dropped a pass, but showed better hands on two later catches. Foschi broke multiple tackles on one short catch over the middle that he took for a 20 yard gain deep in Baltimore territory. He appears to be Palmer's primary tight end target now.
Week 10 vs. PIT
Receiving: 3 / 14 / 0 on 3 targets
Foschi was targeted three times on short passes. He showed better hands this week, grabbing a low pass off the turf, but also failed to get far enough downfield on a short third down play that ended a drive in the red zone.
Week 11 vs. OAK
Receiving: 2 / 12 / 0 on 2 targets
Foschi was again the team's most targeted tight end. He caught both passes on short routes and was primarily used to help block on run plays.
Week 12 vs. CLE
Receiving: 2 / 11 / 1 on 2 targets
Foschi was used primarily as a blocker to aid in protection against a frequently blitzing Cleveland defense. He was targeted on two passes and caught both, including a nice play in traffic in the end zone for a touchdown as Carson Palmer found him in a crease while rolling to avoid pressure.
Week 13 vs. DET
Receiving: 1 / 16 / 0 on 3 targets
Foschi was targeted four times on the day. One catch was called back after a penalty. His lone reception came on a middle screen which he added yards after the catch on a long second down play.
Week 15 vs. SD
Receiving: 7 / 82 / 0 on 9 targets
Foschi was the surprise recipient of the most receptions in the game for either team. It wasn't that the team made a conscious effort to get him the ball; it's more due to the fact that he was the target in a lot of situations where the Bengals needed 10+ yards and he was the check down option to add a couple of yards to the punt. Despite rarely being the first option, he still showed some things. He picked up a first down on third and 13 early on, was targeted near the goal line (and was probably interfered with, but no call was made). And late in the game, with the Bengals in the shadow of their own end zone, he showed awesome hands on a pass that may have been intercepted if he didn't get his mitts on it first. It was a 21 yard reception on first and 12 from their own three, and was really the spark that helped create the game-tying drive.
Week 16 vs. KC
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 2 targets
Foschi was targeted once and had a bad drop on the only catchable ball thrown to him.
