Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs STL (4 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)

Carlson had another drop on Sunday, which continued a troubling trend for the once sure-handed tight end. The play itself was inconsequential and would have resulted in a punt regardless, but in his three games as a starter, Stanton unsurprisingly showed far more dependence on the TE position than Palmer had making it imperative Carlson solves this problem soon.

2014 Week 11 vs DET (3 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)

Despite not catching a touchdown, Carlson had his best game in quite some time for the simple reason that he did not drop a single pass. A low bar to clear, but an important one with a backup quarterback needing all the help he can get. Carlson provided the safety net Stanton needed and hauled in all three passes thrown his way. Two of Carlson's catches resulted in first downs, while his third catch picked up 16 yards on a 2nd-17 situation. These are the kinds of plays that sustain drives and can hopefully allow this offense to stop being so reliant on big-play touchdowns and start stringing drives together.

2014 Week 12 vs SEA (4 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

With no run game and an inability to throw the ball outside the numbers, TE John Carlson was a bit more involved in this week's game plan. Carlson again did not drop a pass, another positive sign for the TE. He should continue to see more work in the passing game with Stanton behind center, but unless he finds the end zone, his contributions will remain few and far between.
