Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 7 vs DET (5 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Pierre Garcon wasn't as involved this game as he only had two catches on four total targets. He has been busy with Jordan Reed out but this game wasn't his day.
2016 Week 6 vs PHI (11 / 6 / 77 / 0 rec)
Pierre Garcon had one of his more productive games of the year as he led the team in catches and yards. Four of his six catches resulted in first downs a he constantly kept the chains moving. He had an opportunity for a touchdown but Kirk misfired out of the back of the end zone when Pierre had his man beat. Pierre's longest reception went for twenty-two yards and he displayed the physicality in his route running that Washington loves. Pierre is the consistent possession receiver that fluctuates in volume weekly due to the abundance of weapons in Washington.
2016 Week 5 vs BAL (7 / 5 / 56 / 1 rec)
Pierre Garcon had one his better receiving days against the Ravens. He had five catches and also scored the only offensive touchdown for Washington. Pierre ran right pass the cornerback up field for a twenty yard strike down the sideline. Pierre also had two critical third down conversions in the third and fourth quarter that kept drives alive. The winds forced more short throws where Pierre is often the beneficiary.
2016 Week 4 vs CLE (5 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Pierre Garcon had another one of his typical games as a chain mover. He only had four catches but two of them resulted in first downs. Pierre never receives a high volume of catches or targets but his ability to break tackles after the catch is helpful in Washington's offense. Kirk did miss Pierre once in this game on a potential touchdown in the red zone as they couldn't connect on a slant route.
2016 Week 3 vs NYG (7 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)
Pierre Garcon played his usual role against Washington of mainly being a possession receiver. Garcon had five catches but none of them were highly impactful in totality. He had a twenty yard gain that he and Kirk can continue to build on but Pierre won't be called upon much to make the big plays in the passing game.
2016 Week 2 vs DAL (7 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Pierre Garcon wasn't very busy in this game as he only recorded two catches. Neither catch made much of a difference but it should be noted that he had a red zone target. However, Kirk misread the coverage and Pierre didn't even have a chance at the ball. Pierre often gets frustrated with his opportunities but having an inconsistent quarterback will make for these types of days.
2016 Week 1 vs PIT (6 / 6 / 51 / 0 rec)
Pierre Garcon had a quiet day even though he recorded six catches. His longest went for sixteen yards but the Steelers secondary made sure to keep everything in front of them and rally to the ball. None of Pierre's catches were very impactful to the offense but a few did help move the chains for first downs. He didn't record a catch in the first half but started to find his groove coming out after halftime. He was not targeted in any of their red zone trips as many times he has been the second option behind Jordan Reed.
