Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs BAL (7 / 5 / 91 / 1 rec)
Boyd was the star of the game for the Bengals. He made a pair of tough 3rd-down catches in the first quarter to keep drives going, one on a slant over the middle and another on an out route along the sidelines. The big play for Boyd came with less than a minute left and the Bengals facing 4th-and-12 from midfield. Boyd lined up in the slot and ran straight down the seam, finding a soft spot in the zone. He caught it 30 yards downfield and accelerated to the outside past a safety and into the end zone for the game-winning 49-yard touchdown.
2017 Week 16 vs DET (6 / 5 / 39 / 0 rec)
After being a healthy scratch multiple times in recent weeks, Boyd was back in the lineup and made an impact. He was targeted deep down the seam on an early third down and dropped what would have been a moderately difficult catch. He made some key catches as the game went on though, including a 3rd-and-long catch where he found a soft spot in the zone. Boyd also nearly scored on a 6-yard reception. He dove to extend the ball toward the pylon but came up a yard short.
2017 Week 14 vs CHI (4 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Boyd has worked his way back up the depth chart to #3 wide receiver but hasn't done much of note. He had a drop and wasn't on the same page as Dalton on a timing route to the outside.
2017 Week 12 vs CLE (2 / 2 / 17 / 1 rec)
Boyd looks fully healthy again after missing much of the season with a knee injury. He scored a 9-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the game. Boyd lined up in the slot and ran a slant. The Browns linebackers bit hard on the play action run fake, which left the middle of the field wide open for Boyd to easily score. Boyd had a great effort to get past the sticks on a 3rd-and-long reception. He caught it short and turned up the left sideline, diving and extending the ball past the marker despite taking a big hit along the sideline.
2017 Week 5 vs BUF (2 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)
Boyd had a pair of short catches early on quick out routes to the sideline in the game's first 10 minutes. On his second catch, Shareece Wright dove low and took out Boyd's knee. He left the game with has been diagnosed as a sprained MCL that will sideline him for at least a few weeks.
2017 Week 4 vs CLE (2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Boyd has been working as the third receiver but the Bengals have been using FB/TE Ryan Hewitt more and Boyd's playing time has been down. He caught a pair of short passes from the slot but isn't a big part of the offensive game plan at this point.
2017 Week 1 vs BAL (4 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Boyd was targeted on a quick slant that was tipped at the line for a Ravens interception. His only reception came on an option route to the outside that he took for 11 yards to convert a 3rd-and-9 and get the team into the red zone.
