Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 19 vs NE (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Griffin was quiet in this game after playing a larger role in the wild card win over the Raiders.

2016 Week 18 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)

Griffin started at tight end and was the primary targets on the opening drive catching 3 passes for 29 yards. His longest reception was for 13 yards and he continued to work Malcolm Smith in coverage. After the first drive, Griffin did not get many looks but it is clear they like Griffin in the pass catching role.

2016 Week 15 vs JAX (8 / 8 / 85 / 0 rec)

No C.J. Fiedorowicz proved big for Ryan Griffin who had 8 receptions on the day. Griffin was able to show his ability to stretch the field and his two longest receptions for the game were 23 and 18 when he was able to eat up yards after the catch. Griffin worked underneath and had catches for 8 three times where he fit into zones between Jaguars coverage. He was in sync with Savage the entree game an it proved to be vital for Savage's success.

2016 Week 14 vs IND (2 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

The other tight end is getting looks also and Ryan Griffin is posing small threats on the field. He had a 12 yard reception and a an 11 yard reception on 3 targets. Grifffin does majority o his damage down the field and when he gets into the second level, good thing occur. He is the tight end that the Texans use to stretch the field and he can get into the secondary when needed.

2016 Week 13 vs GB (6 / 4 / 35 / 1 rec)

His opening drive fumble proved costly to open the game and it was after a 6 yard reception. Griffin did end up catching a touchdown pass for 6 yards that saw him get away with a push to get open in the corner of the end zone. He also had an 18 yard reception where he broke away from three Packers defenders.

2016 Week 4 vs TEN (5 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec)

Not to be outdone, Ryan Griffin went to work and opened up the offense catching a well thrown ball from Osweiler for a 45-yard gain which he took down into the red zone. He also had reception for 6 and 3 yards and actually game the Texans some good looks in the middle of the field.

2016 Week 3 vs NE (10 / 8 / 52 / 0 rec)

It was late but Ryan Griffin was a pass catching machine in the second quarter to late in the game due to Osweiler finally working underneath. His longest reception was for 11 yards but he was finding space in coverage underneath and getting the yards he could. Griffin did all of his work on underneath routes in the short areas (10 yards or less) on the field. This one one of the best games a Texans tight end has had in some time and it should be a staple of the offense. Osweiler is still learning to trust his tight end group and this could be the start to more production from the position.
