Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 17 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)
Brent Celek contributed 38 yards on a pair of catches. The first of which went for 14 yards on a play in which the defense forgot about him. His second catch was much more impressive - a 24-yarder in excellent coverage. Celek was able to secure the catch despite his defender having two hands on the ball. He was also concussed on the play and didn't return.
2015 Week 16 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Brent Celek was left uncovered on his one target, and turned it into a nice 18-yard gain. He also fumbled the ball as he was tackled but was able to recover it.
2015 Week 15 vs ARI (2 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
Brent Celek secured both of his targets, the first one of which was a nice over-the-shoulder catch in tight coverage for 22 yards. His next target wouldn't come until late in the fourth quarter with Zach Ertz on the sideline.
2015 Week 14 vs BUF (2 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Brent Celek's only noteworthy play came when had a ball ripped out of his hands by a defender resulting in an interception for his quarterback. The throw was a touch high but still in a good spot. He initially caught it and had control when the defender was able to jump the possession before Celek could come down with it.
2015 Week 13 vs NE (1 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
With Zach Ertz back in the lineup, and without much need for passing, Brent Celek's box score doesn't have much to brag about. He did secure his only target on a nice catch-and-run for 16 yards that put the Eagles in scoring position. Ertz scored the touchdown a few plays later.
2015 Week 12 vs DET (4 / 2 / 10 / 1 rec)
Brent Celek got the start at tight end this week with Zach Ertz sidelined. He accounted for one of two Eagles touchdowns. Early in the second quarter, on third down with the ball at the goal line, Celek was able to beat his man and dive into the endzone. Unfortunately, he was hurt on the play and slowly made his way off the field. Whether or not that had impact on how he played the rest of the game isn't clear. But with the offensive line getting smothered by the Lions pass rush, Celek was forced into a heavy dosage of pass protection, which may explain why he ended up with only two catches on the day.
2015 Week 11 vs TB (10 / 7 / 79 / 0 rec)
Brent Celek led the team in targets and receiving yards in his best game of the year. He was left as the only reliable tight end after Zach Ertz was ruled out with a concussion early in the game. Mark Sanchez looked for Celek often, and when the passes were on target, he made them count by picking up chunks of yards. He had an opportunity for a big gain late in the first when he was left wide open, but couldn't hang onto the pass. Had the Eagles offense actually been effective, Celek would have likely had a monster day, but ultimately didn't see any redzone looks. Should Ertz miss any time, Celek will have a big role and it wouldn't be surprising to see nice box scores like the one he had against the Bucs.
2015 Week 10 vs MIA (4 / 4 / 134 / 0 rec)
Someone needed to step up in this game and help out the Eagles quarterbacks. That someone was Brent Celek. On their very first play of the game he turned a 10-yard catch into a 60-yard gain. It was perfect ball placement by Sam Bradford, finding Celek in space. Celek did the rest with a nice cut to the sideline and rumbled into Dolphins' territory. He contributed another big catch, this time for 20 yards, on their next series, and then a 40-yarder in the second quarter. In the end, he converted all four of his targets into his biggest yardage total since Week 2 of the 2012 season.
2015 Week 5 vs NO (3 / 3 / 44 / 1 rec)
Brent Celek only has six targets on the season but leads the team in touchdown receptions. His touchdown in the third quarter was the result of an excellent play design and terrible defensive execution. Celek simply leaked off of the line and curled into an empty zone in the end zone. There wasn't a defender within five yards of him. His pass-blocking skills will create an active game script for him throughout the season, and occasionally, he'll be forgotten by the defense and left wide open.
2015 Week 4 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 10 / 1 rec)
With the Eagles playing catchup, Brent Celek's snap counts were reduced to the lowest he has seen all season. Obviously, Kelly wanted to get more playmakers on the field and Celek, though consistent and a good blocker, can't compare athletically to Ertz. He did, however, bailout a scrambling Bradford by leaking into the flat, catching a forced pass and diving into the end zone.
