Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs NO (8 / 5 / 54 / 0 rec, 2 / 6 / 0 rush)

Often operating as the receiver opposite Kelvin Benjamin in two-wide sets, Ted Ginn Jr. found a lot of success against the Saints defensive backs. He was often forced to adjust to errant Cam Newton passes, but made an impressive reaching grab on an early sideline pass for a first down. Ginn's speed around the corner was a big part of the game plan; he was often the ball carrier on end around plays as the Panthers tried to outflank New Orleans. As the Saints began to open up the umbrella and play more soft coverage, Ginn was often the first option Newton looked to on quick-hitting passes outside the numbers. However, Ginn's electric game-breaking speed should have come into play more, none more so than on a deep shot from Newton. Unfortunately for Carolina, Newton left the football too high and short, forcing Ginn to come back and fight for the pass with the defensive back. Ginn was featured on a gadget play as he threw the football downfield off the end around; the attempt to the end zone drew a defensive pass interference penalty.

2016 Week 5 vs TB (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Derek Anderson's focus in this contest was firmly on feeding the ball to Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen, primarily on well-defined passes in rhythm and on time. Ted Ginn featured plenty in two-receiver sets, but his quarterback never looked his way as Ginn ran deeper, slower developing patterns. Ginn made a critical error in the first half, muffing a punt after one of his own players bumped into him at the crucial moment. He made little ground on a wide receiver screen at the beginning of the second half, as the blocks didn't quite develop in front of him.

2016 Week 4 vs ATL (5 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

With the Falcons playing so much passive coverage designed to take away the big play, Ted Ginn's chances of making a splash play downfield were limited. Ginn adjusted well to an errant Cam Newton pass on the first offensive play, snatching the football above his head on a simple drag route. Two subsequent targets from the erratic Newton were incomplete, with the second perhaps unfortunate not to draw a defensive pass interference penalty. Ginn added another short catch with the seconds waning on Carolina's sputtering offense.

2016 Week 3 vs MIN (7 / 3 / 62 / 0 rec, 2 / 5 / 0 rush)

The primary target of Cam Newton, especially in the early stages, was Ted Ginn Jr., who took advantage of some sloppy cornerback play early on to haul in a 31-yard pass. The cornerback, playing Cover 2, failed to get enough of a jam at the line of scrimmage, allowing Ginn to shoot up the sideline unencumbered. Newton fired in a pass to the outside so Ginn could protect himself from the onrushing safety. Ginn was unfortunate to be tackled by the safety on the play, as he was an ankle tackle away from pay dirt. Ginn hauled in a bullet pass on a deep dig pattern later in the half as it seemed as though the offense was coming to life. The Panthers made a concerted effort to get the ball in Ginn's hands, handing it off to him on a double reverse and peppering him with passes in the screen game. The Vikings defense responded every time, their riposte deadly and clinical in terms of tackling.

2016 Week 2 vs SF (4 / 2 / 51 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)

Ted Ginn Jr. provided both moments of magic and moments of utter frustration against San Francisco. Early on, Ginn got on the end of a beautiful Cam Newton deep ball, running underneath it in the end zone for what appeared to be a touchdown. However, the speed merchant failed to tap his second foot in bounds. The play came out of a nicely crafted route combination with Devin Funchess, who drew the underneath defenders with a deep out. Ginn could have been off to the races on a quick slant route, but Newton did not release the ball correctly and it fell harmlessly to Ginn's feet. Ginn dropped a fairly straightforward pass on a deep dig route, perhaps hearing the footsteps of a closing San Francisco defender. He made amends for the touchdown taken off the board, hauling in a 52-yard pass down the right sideline from Newton. All Ginn had to do was run under the ball, although there was a question over whether he maintained control throughout the process of the catch.

2016 Week 1 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec, 1 / 20 / 0 rush)

Ted Ginn Jr. was largely marginalized in a tough matchup against a Broncos secondary that provided very few opportunities for big plays, where the speedy receiver normally makes his money. Ginn showed good speed to get to the outside on an early reverse, following a seal block from Cam Newton to dash around the edge. His sole reception came in the final two minutes as the Panthers were driving for a potential game-winning field goal, impressively securing a dart from Newton on the sideline, dragging both feet. Ginn was a regular in the receiver rotation especially with Kelvin Benjamin on a snap count but he failed to catch the eye of Newton, who went instead to the aforementioned Benjamin, Devin Funchess and Greg Olsen.
