Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 16 vs HOU (7 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Backup tight end Anthony Fasano caught two passes in this game. The first came when Zach Mettenberger extended the play into the flat and checked the ball down to him for seven yards. Fasano caught his second and final pass of the game late in the second quarter as he ran a crisp curl route between defenders over the middle of the field.
2015 Week 15 vs NE (4 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Fasano did all of his work in the flat on this game. He did a great job to convert an early Third-and-14 when he caught a pass in the flat and ran up the sideline. However, the play was negated by a holding penalty against one of the Titans offensive linemen. Early in the second quarter, Mariota went back to Fasano in the flat but this time he was tackled just short of the first-down marker when he gained three yards. Late in the third quarter, Fasano caught another quick throw in the flat, this time for seven yards. That play set up a Third-and-Short where Fasano caught another quick throw in the flat for a first down.
2015 Week 12 vs OAK (2 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Fasano's first target of the game came early in the first quarter. He caught a nine-yard pass deep in his own territory to set up a Third-and-Short. The tight end had to wait for two quarters for his next reception, but it was an impressive one. Fasano slid backwards and caught the ball as he landed on the ground for a first down deep in Raiders territory.
2015 Week 11 vs JAX (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Anthony Fasano likely replayed his third down drop against the Panthers over and over again this week, so he will be thankful that Mariota went to him early in the game. Fasano caught a curl route to set up a Third-and-Short over the middle of the field. The Titans looked to Fasano on a third down play in the third quarter again this week. On this occasion, he made a difficult catch with a defender in his vicinity before reaching forward for a first down. It was a very impressive, improbable play. Fasano disappeared during the second half, to be replaced by Philip Supernaw, but there was no injury reported.
2015 Week 10 vs CAR (4 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Anthony Fasano isn't known for creating yards after the catch, but that's what he did with his first target. It came on the second drive of the game, facing a key third down. The Titans unusually called a pick play that was designed to put the ball in Fasano's hands running towards the sideline. He showed off nimble feet to turn upfield in space for a first down. The Titans looked to Fasano again in the third quarter, but this time he dropped the first down reception on third down.
2015 Week 9 vs NO (3 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
Anthony Fasano was only targeted three times on Sunday, but his final target was the biggest play of the Titans season thus far. In overtime, Marcus Mariota engineered a 9-play, 80-yard drive that was capped off with a 5-yard strike to Fasano for the game-winning score. Despite the heroics, Fasano should remain in his current role and receive only a few targets per game as the season progresses.
2015 Week 8 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Fasano didn't see the football until the fourth quarter. He caught a pass underneath on Second-and-9 before finishing the play moving forward for a first down. It was his only reception of the game.
2015 Week 7 vs ATL (4 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Fasano didn't see the football go his way until the fourth quarter. With that first target, he caught a pass underneath for seven yards when the defense dropped into deeper zones.
2015 Week 6 vs MIA (3 / 2 / 1 / 0 rec)
The Titans' passing game as a whole was stunted by the Miami Dolphins' pass rush, so Fasano was always unlikely to get many opportunities. His first target came when he caught a screen pass late in the third quarter for a big loss. Fasano caught his second target in the redzone for a first down, but was stopped short of the endzone.
2015 Week 3 vs IND (2 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
Fasano saw his first target during the second quarter. He was wide open after Mariota went through a full-field progression read. Fasano was able to rumble downfield for a first down and a big play.
2015 Week 2 vs CLE (7 / 5 / 84 / 1 rec)
Fasano isn't as talented as Delanie Walker, but he proved to be reliable in a starting role. Fasano led the team in receiving with 84 yards on five receptions with a touchdown. His touchdown reception was also his most impressive play, as he adjusted to a low pass from Mariota down the middle of the field.
2015 Week 1 vs TB (1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Anthony Fasano was always going to play in this offense, but it wasn't obvious that he would have such a big role. He should have scored a touchdown when Mariota tossed the ball to him in the flat on a triple-option read. Fasano ran down the sideline as quick as he could, but just stepped out of bounds before he could fall into the endzone. That was Fasano's only reception as he spent most of his day blocking.
