Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 6 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Josh Gordon left the game in the second quarter making a tackle off a turnover and got rolled up on. As a result, he wasn't even able to play a half, and it questionable for the next Pats game.
2019 Week 5 vs WAS (8 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)
Though Gordon was certainly involved against the Redskins, he only made one play of real note. On the play, Gordon caught a pass and stiff armed a defender into oblivion, running for additional yards after the catch. It highlighted that this year beyond a couple superhuman catches, the Pats have been using Gordon for YAC throws and letting him go to work with his physicality.
2019 Week 4 vs BUF (7 / 3 / 46 / 0 rec)
Beyond a 31 yard catch and go on a pick play, Gordon didn't do much of anything, as the Bills smothered him in coverage and bothered Tom Brady all game. He did have a drop on a slant route, and some of his routes were odd considering the Pats didn't have a ton of time to throw. Julian Edelman was also playing injured, which meant more coverage could head Gordon's way. Either way, he was expected to be volatile in the stat column on a weekly basis, and it showed here.
2019 Week 3 vs NYJ (11 / 6 / 83 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Though he got banged up in the 2nd quarter, Gordon gritted through his injury and flashed what makes him such a talent. His first highlight reel grab was a leaping grab at the 4 yard line in which he high pointed the catch over a defender. His second even better grab was another jump ball in the middle of the field in triple coverage with yet another defender nearby. It's a catch very few players in the NFL can make, and one that highlights his importance to this offense without Antonio Brown. If Julian Edelman's injury keeps him out, Gordon is in line to see heavy volume in the near future.
2019 Week 2 vs MIA (5 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
With Antonio Brown and the lopsided game, it was Gordon who saw the biggest drop in action. Though he did see 5 targets, he only converted 2 of them for catches. It's clear as long as AB is part of the game, his targets and yards could be volatile, though it's also worth noting a theme of the first half against the Dolphins was getting AB integrated into the offense.
2019 Week 1 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 73 / 1 rec)
Edelman did typical Edelman things against the Steelers, including a trick play showing off his arm, which seems to happen once or twice a season. Edelman did miss a catch, but also caught one in the second half where he was absolutely whacked and still hung onto the ball. There wasn't much rust to speak of, but with all the weapons the Patriots have, it's fair to wonder if he will be as consistent as he usually is in the stat column. That said, the trust he has with Tom Brady is unrivaled.
