Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 7 vs DAL (5 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)
Jeffery led the team in targets, but with a modest total of five as the Eagles struggled to maintain scoring drives in the blowout loss at Dallas. Jeffery's lone impact play was Carson Wentz's best throw of the game, a sideline pass between defenders to Jeffery. Jeffery also dropped a chunk reception and did not have a chance to corral a too-tall target from Wentz in the end zone. The Bills offer another tough test in Week 8 for Jeffery to top 80 yards for the first time this season.
2019 Week 6 vs MIN (12 / 10 / 76 / 1 rec)
Jeffery paced the Eagles with 12 targets against the Vikings on a myriad of routes. Early in the game everything was short for Jeffery, collecting four receptions by the opening minutes of the second quarter. Jeffery was also stuffed on two screen passes in the game. Jeffery had three catches of highlight quality, however, showing flashes of his earlier-career dominance at times. Jeffery controlled a stick throw from an improvising Carson Wentz at the goal line and hauled in a trust throw between the pair in a contested downfield situation right over the defensive back. Over the past three games Jeffery has a hearty 29 targets and 19-166-2 stat line since returning from injury.
2019 Week 5 vs NYJ (8 / 6 / 52 / 0 rec)
Jeffery led the Eagles with a sturdy eight targets against the Jets, but not do much down the field. Jeffery turned a smoke screen into a 10-yard gain and corralled a red zone slant to convert a third down. However, the field has shrunk for the older veteran through three games as he is averaging less than 1- yards-per-reception and not seeing many targets to the intermediate and deep levels of the field. DeSean Jackson returning to the lineup, projected soon, offers bigger openings for Jeffery to work for after-the-catch opportunities.
2019 Week 4 vs GB (9 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)
Jeffery returned to the Eagles lineup against the Packers with DeSean Jackson still notably out with injury. Jeffery did not see a target until the second quarter but led the team with 33% of the targets for the game overall. Jeffery had an up-and-down game in his return and the connection with Carson Wentz was hit-and-miss. Jeffery dropped a slant after a wide-open touchdown on the same route earlier in the first half. Jeffery also had two contested targets tipped away by defenders. With a chance to ice the game in the closing minutes, a third-down out route by Jeffery was missed due to an inaccurate Carson Wentz throw.
2019 Week 2 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jeffery left the game with a calf injury.
2019 Week 1 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 49 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 1 rush)
Jeffery saw the most snaps of Eagles receivers against Washington but was largely overshadowed by DeSean Jackson's two long touchdowns. However, Jeffery operated well on short-to-intermediate targets, including converting a third-and-goal touchdown off an inside screen design and extending a fourth quarter drive with a critical third-down reception. With so many weapons on the Eagles offense, Jeffery's weekly role is questionable in terms of targets as was the case in Week 1 behind DeSean Jackson and Zach Ertz.
