Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 7 vs CLE (5 / 4 / 83 / 1 rec)

LaFell caught a 9-yard slant early. He made a nice diving catch for 22 yards on a seam route. The play was challenged but the call stood with no definitive evidence the ball hit the ground. On the very next play, LaFell caught a 44-yard touchdown. He ran a stop and go route against Jamar Taylor in single coverage. He did a quick stutter, Taylor bit and then tried to tackle LaFell as he accelerated past and sprinted wide open for the easy deep catch. It was LaFell's fourth touchdown in three weeks. He is a big part of the Bengals weekly passing game.

2016 Week 6 vs NE (5 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)

LaFell remains the every down WR2 and played all but a few snaps in Week 6, but Malcolm Butler held him in check. LaFell caught a short pass on third down that came up just shy of the first-down marker. He caught his third short touchdown pass in two weeks as he came down with a 5-yard reception in the center of the end zone on a strong route across the back of the end zone. He was covered man-to-man by Butler and faked the outside route before breaking across the middle of the end zone. He got great separation and was able to drag both toes before going out of the back of the end zone.

2016 Week 5 vs DAL (11 / 8 / 68 / 2 rec)

For the second-straight week, LaFell led the Bengals receivers in snaps. He was essentially an every-down player at 93% of the snaps. With Green seeing extra coverage shifted his direction, LaFell also led the team in targets with 11 to A.J. Green's 8. LaFell made the most of his opportunities. He showed power and elusiveness on a 14-yard bubble screen. LaFell caught two short touchdown passes. He caught a 7-yard score on a crossing route across the end zone after Dalton was able to scramble and buy time for him to come open. He also caught a 5-yard touchdown. He lined up in the slot inside of Green and ran a quick out route, catching the ball at the goal line and running it in.

2016 Week 4 vs MIA (6 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)

LaFell is clearly established as the Bengals second receiver ahead of Tyler Boyd. He actually led the team's receivers in snaps with 65, compared to 59 for Green and 28 for Boyd. He almost came down with a 7-yard touchdown pass. The play broke down, Dalton rolled right and LaFell ran with him. He caught the ball but just ran out of room along the side of the end zone to get both feet down in bounds. LaFell's biggest gain was a 23-yard reception on a crossing route. Coverage was tight, but Dalton made an incredible throw to fit it into the tight window over the defender.

2016 Week 3 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)

LaFell drew an early pass interference penalty, but otherwise had a very quiet game. He picked up a 27-yard gain against deep down the middle against the Broncos prevent defense in garbage time.

2016 Week 2 vs PIT (8 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)

LaFell drew a pass interference call in the end zone. It looked like he was going to break free for the short touchdown catch on a slant route, but the defender wrapped him up. LaFell had a key 17-yard reception over the middle as the Bengals were trying to drive for the game-tying touchdown in the final two minutes.

2016 Week 1 vs NYJ (4 / 4 / 91 / 0 rec)

While LaFell wasn't heavily targeted, he made two of the biggest plays of the game for the Bengals. He caught a first-half crossing route for 21 yards on 3rd-and-7 to keep the chains moving. The Bengals scored their first touchdown of the game on the next play. The key play on the Bengals only other touchdown drive came courtesy of LaFell. Facing 3rd-and-19, Dalton snapped the ball quickly before the defense could get organized; LaFell beat single coverage on a go route down the sideline and came down with a 49-yard reception.
