Week 5: at Green Bay Packers

All TE vs GB

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Nick Foles stood in under pressure and delivered three TD passes in Arizona last weekend (he was only sacked once for -7 yards), throwing 16/24 for 171 yards passing, and zero interceptions thrown as well. Tavon Austin drew seven targets for 6/96/2 receiving, while Stedman Bailey (three for 2/30/1) and Jared Cook (six for 3/22/0) were also in the mix during the offensive outburst. We'll see if the team can stand the head in Lambeau Field this week. The Packers average 197.0 net passing yards allowed per game (seventh in the NFL), having given out just four passing scores over four games, vs. four interceptions (ninth in the NFL) and a whopping 17 sacks generated (tied for second in the NFL). Last week, the 49ers eked out three whole points at home vs. Green Bay, managing 13/25 for 119 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown while taking six sacks for -41 yards. This is a high-pressure pass D that gets after opposing signal callers. It's never easy to visit Lambeau Field - advantage, Green Bay.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs ARI (6 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)

Jared Cook was heavily targeted in the first half. Midway through the 2nd quarter on a 2nd and 7 from the St. Louis 23 yard line, Cook caught a slant route for a 12 yard gain. Later in the drive on a 1st and 10 from the Arizona 18 yard line, Cook caught a TE screen for an 8 yard gain. A couple of plays later on a 3rd and 4, Cook couldn't come up with a jump ball in the right corner of the end zone.

2015 Week 3 vs PIT (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Jared Cook was the top target the first two weeks but that was not the case in Week 3. Cook had zero targets in the first half. Late in the 3rd quarter on a 3rd and 10, Cook caught a curl route for an 8 yard gain. Late in the 4th quarter on a 1st and 10, Cook missed a reception that went through his hands.

2015 Week 2 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 47 / 0 rec)

Jared Cook was the main passing target for Nick Foles. During the opening series, Cook caught a play action pass for a 10 yard gain. He wasn't targeted again until later in the first half. Their timing was off a few times during the game mainly due to plays not having the time to properly develop. On the fifth series of the game, Cook dropped a tight end screen pass. On the next series on a 3rd and 7, Cook dropped a catchable ball on a comeback route. Before halftime on a 3rd and 10, Cook made a 13 yard reception to the Redskins 31 yard line. Time expired before the Rams were able to spike the ball. After the Rams cut the lead to 17-10 in the 3rd quarter, Cook took a 15 yard facemask penalty on 1st down. This penalty stopped any momentum the Rams had gained from the Britt touchdown.

2015 Week 1 vs SEA (6 / 5 / 85 / 0 rec)

Jared Cook was a reliable target for Nick Foles. During the second series on a 1st and 10, Cook caught a play action crossing route over the middle for 22 yards. Later in that drive, Cook was left unguarded on the left side of the field for an easy 19 yard reception. During the next series on a 2nd and 10, Cook caught a tight end screen pass for a 5 yard gain. He would have picked up more yardage if not for a shoestring tackle. Early in the second half, Cook caught a play action pass and was tacked on the three yard line after a 29 yard gain. He did not have a chance to get in the end zone as there were multiple Seahawk defenders.

Rams | St. Louis TEs do very little (Sun Sep 27, 08:04 PM) - St. Louis Rams TE Lance Kendricks had a pair of receptions for 12 yards in the Week 3 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers while TE Jared Cook had one catch for seven yards. Kendricks was targeted five times and Cook was targeted thrice.

Our View: Cook was Nick Foles' favorite target the first two weeks, but he faded into the background this week. He is unreliable heading into Arizona next week.
