2014 Week 19 vs DAL (5 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)

The Dallas Cowboys chose to shut down Jordy Nelson, and for the most part they did. They played the receiver very physically, and on both of his catches, Nelson was pummeled as he was catching the ball or after the fact. He hung onto the ball though and both receptions went for first downs. The attention paid to Nelson helped make it easier for Randall Cobb and Davante Adams to have big days.

2014 Week 20 vs SEA (8 / 5 / 71 / 0 rec)

The Seahawks covered Jordy Nelson closely, mostly using Byron Maxwell. Maxwell was a very tight shadow for Nelson, who also had to deal with some uncharacteristic inaccuracy from quarterback Aaron Rodgers as well as a few drops he had himself. The worst miscommunication seemed to come in the second quarter on Rodgers' second interception. On the play, Nelson took his route outside, but Rodgers clearly thought he was cutting up and in. The ball went directly to Maxwell, who picked it off. Nelson's longest reception was a 23-yard catch and run on a deep slant which split the defense. Maxwell gave Nelson too much of a cushion, so when the receiver cut in, Maxwell was completely out of position and nowhere near to Nelson. While he wrangled Nelson a short time after the catch, it was a well-run route and took advantage of a poor call by Maxwell. After that, Nelson seemed to have some more success outmaneuvering Maxwell, drawing a pass interference call and catching his next three passes. However none of these were long plays or deep, and Seattle was able to keep Nelson contained.
