Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 5 vs GB (7 / 11 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Orleans Darkwa failed to get anything going on the ground against the Packers on Sunday night. The offensive line created no gaps or push back to allow Darkwa to get into the secondary. Darkwa lacks the explosiveness to bounce plays to the outside and simply took the very minor gain when it presented itself. The Packers penetrated all game long and were sure tacklers when first contact was made. Darkwa was not a factor in the passing game either as teammate Rainey was the back in passing situations. Darkwa has some redzone potential as long as Jennings remains out but really should only be played if desperate.

2016 Week 4 vs MIN (12 / 48 / 1 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Orleans Darkwa was solid on the ground against the Vikings, giving New York some splash runs and aided in keeping Minnesota somewhat honest on defense. Darkwa ran with power and was able to fall forward when hitting the pile at the line of scrimmage. Darkwa got the bulk of the carries, including most of the redzone work on the rare occasion that the Giants offense entered the redzone on the night. Darkwa was given a lot of dive plays up the middle but had limited success with these. He was able to rip off some decent gains on the outside and turn negative plays into positive ones. Darkwa scored on a 1st and goal situation from the 1 yard line. He got a nice seal up front by his offensive line and looked impressive as he powered over a Minnesota linebacker for the contested score. Darkwa was not a factor in the passing game however and didn't register a single catch. He has value as long as Jennings remains on the sideline but won't be worth it once Jennings returns.

2016 Week 3 vs WAS (10 / 53 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Orleans Darkwa was pressed into action as a backup and played well. He only had ten carries but also scored a touchdown. In the second quarter his was given a goal line carry that he took in with ease. His longest carry went for fifteen yards but for the day he averaged better than five yards per tote. Orleans had one catch but it wasn't very significant. He showed that if needed he can be productive running the football as he ran hard and broke tackles. There were key runs for Orleans (notably in the second half) that helped keep drives alive and maintain balance offensively.
