Week 2 vs. NYG
Receiving: 1 / 7 / 0 on 2 targets
Sam Hurd had a minimal impact in this game, catching just one of his two targets in Week 2 against the Giants.
Week 4 vs. DEN
Receiving: 3 / 62 / 0 on 5 targets
Hurd was the only Cowboys receivers to have a big catch on the day. In the fourth-quarter, from their own 28-yard line Tony Romo found Hurd on a broken play. It was fourth and three, and Romo used his improvisational skills to run around and buy time while Hurd ran to a soft spot in the zone. Romo hit him in stride, and Hurd took off across the field. Veteran Brian Dawkins made a touchdown-saving tackle at the Broncos 20-yard line. Two plays later Romo went back to Hurd, who was matched up against All-Pro Champ Bailey. This time it was a completion for 8-yards, but he was unable to get out of bounds under his own power and the Cowboys had to use their third and final timeout. The final two plays of the game were passes where Romo locked onto Hurd in the endzone. Bailey covered him two different ways and cleverly baited Romo into making tough throws while Miles Austin ran free in the end zone on the other side of the field.
Week 5 vs. KC
Receiving: 1 / 10 / 0 on 2 targets
Hurd was quiet in Roy Williams absence. He had a chance to catch a touchdown, but Tony Romo threw behind him and Hurd couldn't make the tough catch.
Week 8 vs. SEA
Receiving: 1 / 36 / 1 on 1 targets
Hurd caught one pass for a touchdown on Sunday against Seattle. His 36 yard pass came with the defense trying to blitz Tony Romo and slant double-coverage towards Miles Austin. Hurd was able to get off the line of scrimmage easily and haul in the pass for a score.
Week 15 vs. NO
Receiving: 1 / 6 / 0 on 1 targets
