Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs SEA (5 / 1 / 25 / 1 rec)
Brown only caught one pass Sunday, despite being targeted five total times, but made sure his last reception of the 2017 season would matter. Brown scored the team's first touchdown of the game, the only receiving touchdown the Cardinals would score Sunday, capping off an impressive opening drive. A broken play led to the score, with Stanton narrowly avoiding a sack, scrambling as he directed his receivers to an open area where he hit Brown streaking across. Beyond scoring an early touchdown to take a lead they would not relinquish until late in the 4th quarter, the touchdown also capped a drive in which the Cardinals completely exerted their will, pushing the Seahawks defense around and firmly establishing their intentions for the remainder of the afternoon. Brown may not have caught another pass all afternoon, but he left a mark on the entire game.
2017 Week 12 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 52 / 1 rec)
Prior to the 4th quarter, Brown had been a complete nonfactor in Sunday's game, without a target all afternoon until roughly the 9-minute mark of the 4th. On a 1st down from the team's own 48-yardline, the Cardinals ran a simple play-action pass with Brown lined up wide to Gabbert's left. Brown beat his defender enough to have time to adjust to Gabbert's throw, scoring the go-ahead touchdown easily. It was Brown's one and only target of the afternoon, but its impact immense.
2017 Week 9 vs SF (1 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)
Similar to John, Jaron Brown only had one catch Sunday but made sure it was impactful. Brown's three-yard touchdown came as the play broke down and Brown simply slipped behind defenders.
2017 Week 4 vs SF (12 / 8 / 105 / 0 rec)
Physically, Jaron Brown is the closest this team has to what Michael Floyd once offered. A tall body that could high-point balls and excel in the intermediate, using his body to shield off defenders. While he has often shown this in flashes, Sunday was arguably the most complete game Brown has put together. Brown was a consistent chain-mover all day on Sunday, and was targeted roughly as often as Ellington. Nearly 1/4th of Palmer's attempts targeted Jaron Brown. Simply put, that is a level of involvement he has rarely seen before. Brown's ceiling is likely as a quality #3, but in an offense as devoid of skill-position talent as the Cardinals currently are, he will has an opportunity each week to match this output. The question remains will he play consistent enough to realize it.
2017 Week 3 vs DAL (6 / 2 / 27 / 1 rec)
Brown was fourth on the Cardinals in targets against Dallas, but his two-catch performance could have been more impactful. Brown hauled in a wide open touchdown early in the game, but missed opportunity dominated the rest of Brown's performance. A broken play in the red zone resulted in another touchdown, only to be called back by offensive holding. Later, a deep target was tipped away by a defensive back and two other targets resulted in Brown being barely out of bounds before completing the catch. Multiple touchdowns and close to 100 yards were in play for Brown this week outside of those missed opportunities.
2017 Week 2 vs IND (11 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)
Jaron was the team's most targeted receiver Sunday, with 11 total and 4 more than the next closest, but overall it was a disappointing effort for Brown. Multiple drops and an inability to haul in key downfield passes consistently held the offense back. More than once Jaron had the ball in his hands only for a defensive back to knock it loose. With John Brown's health a continual question, Jaron must become a more consistent player for this offense to improve.
