Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 10 vs NO (3 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Charles Clay returned from injury and played well in minimal opportunities. He officially caught two passes for 13 yards, but his day should have been much better. Two other catches were called back on penalties, one a solid catch and run across the middle and the other a screen pass. Clay had a bad drop that resulted in a Sheldon Rankins interception as the ball ricocheted off Clay's hands directly to Rankins. He has returned to a lead role in the offense after missing several weeks with an injury.

2017 Week 5 vs CIN (3 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)

Charles Clay caught two of his three targets for 31 yards. His long was a 24-yard catch on a corner route, where he went awkwardly to the ground on a glancing tackle to his leg. His knee bent awkwardly on the play and he was carted off the field and he did not return. Clay was the most important player in the Buffalo offense outside of LeSean McCoy so any time he loses creates a void of targets in the offense.

2017 Week 4 vs ATL (7 / 5 / 112 / 0 rec)

Charles Clay continued to play well against Atlanta. He made multiple players miss on two of his catches for solid gains after the catch. He also ran a deep route which he tracked well and caught despite being interfered with on the play for a 44-yard gain. Clay's 7 targets led the team, and represented over one third of Buffalo's 20 passing attempts. He continued to be the best offensive option outside of LeSean McCoy in the Buffalo passing game.

2017 Week 3 vs DEN (6 / 6 / 39 / 1 rec)

Charles Clay caught all six of his target for 39 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown was play action bootleg to the right side of the field. Clay sold his blocking assignment well, and released into the middle of the field, behind the Denver linebackers who were pursuing Tyrod Taylor to the perimeter. His other five targets were in the short area of the field. He did have the opportunity for a big play where he ran a crossing route but was tripped up by a shoestring tackle. Clay continued to be the most dependable Buffalo receiving option outside of LeSean McCoy.

2017 Week 2 vs CAR (3 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)

Charles Clay was limited to only three targets for three receptions and 23 yards. One target was a well-executed screen which gave Clay the opportunity to run after the catch. Clay also caught a drag route and a ball in the flat, but was largely contained on the day. Clay is Buffalo's most dangerous pass catcher outside of LeSean McCoy and was targeted by Carolina's defense, with all his catches coming near the line of scrimmage.

2017 Week 1 vs NYJ (9 / 4 / 53 / 1 rec)

Outside of LeSean McCoy, Charles Clay was clearly the best target in the offense. Clay got open in multiple areas including the middle and on the perimeter. Clay was targeted in the end zone on what should have been a touchdown but the ball deflected off his hands and was intercepted. Clay was covered on the play, but the ball should have been caught, and his mistake cost the Bills points. He redeemed himself later in the game on a quick out from the slot on the one-yard line for a touchdown and later had a 35-yard completion where he beat Jamal Adams. He led the team with nine targets, which should continue given Clay's playmaking ability which the rest of the receiving corps lacks.
