Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs CHI (6 / 6 / 152 / 2 rec)

Sunday night, Jordy Nelson caught every ball that came his way. As usual, some of them required the body contortions and gymnastics which we've come to expect from him. On his first pass, he had cornerback Tim Jennings draped over his back as he extended his body to reign in a slightly high ball. Nelson scored on two passes, both of which came at the expense of some pretty severe blown coverage by the Bears. On both touchdowns, Nelson ran past the cornerback, who clearly looked as if he expected the safety to come over and help. The safety didn't--even after having been burned on this for one touchdown already--and Nelson found himself wide open. Aaron Rodgers easily hit Nelson on the first one, and the receiver took the ball the rest of the way himself, dodging the late-arriving safety as he did. On the second touchdown, Nelson was already in the end zone, so Rodgers delivered the ball to him for an easy second score. Throughout the night, Nelson showed crisp route running and he and Rodgers both took full advantage of some poor decisions by the secondary.

2014 Week 11 vs PHI (10 / 4 / 109 / 1 rec)

Nelson and Aaron Rodgers got on the same page early, with a huge play down the sideline for 64 yards. On the play, Nelson ran straight down the sideline, gaining a couple of steps on the coverage. Rodgers delivered a perfect pass which Nelson was able to catch without breaking stride. He continued up the sideline, reaching the ten yard line before the Eagles brought him down. He almost capped the drive off with a touchdown catch along the back of the end zone, but he couldn't hold onto the ball while keeping his feet in bounds. It was a crazy throw and would have been one of the most amazing catches Nelson has had--which is saying something. That's OK because Nelson got his touchdown a while later in the early second quarter. On the play, Nelson again ran up the sideline. Nelson again got a step on the defender and Rodgers again dropped a perfect pass for Nelson who held onto the ball and got both feet in before falling into the end zone. While Nelson and Rodgers hooked up for some big plays, they also seemed a little off at times, resulting in several balls which were thrown away from Nelson. Either he ran the route wrong or Rodgers was off. Nelson was also the target of several thrown away balls.

2014 Week 12 vs MIN (12 / 8 / 68 / 0 rec)

After watching the Green Bay Packers offense go crazy on teams the last two weeks, the Minnesota Vikings decided they would focus on not allowing Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb to burn them for a lot of yards and touchdowns. They were largely successful in that endeavor, for while Nelson got plenty of yards, it was a lower total than either of the last two weeks and they managed to keep him out of the end zone. That's not to say that Nelson was ineffective--in fact he played very well despite being blanketed with coverage. He continues to make amazing catches, like he did in the second quarter when he ran a 10-yard route along the left sideline. The defender was there when the ball reached Nelson, but he made a great catch despite the defender draped all over him. Nelson almost made a ridiculous catch a few minutes later when he gained a little separation along the sideline and Rodgers threw a very nice pass (though a tad high) where only Nelson was going to get the ball. Nelson made the catch but couldn't quite keep his feet in--if he had, they could have added it to the highlight reel of these two players hooking up for big plays.
