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.
