Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs MIA (2 / 1 / 26 / 1 rec)
Ran a deep seam route that meshed with crossing route from the other side of the field. The play caused the deep safety to get confused, and O'Leary was left wide open for the first score of the game. O'Leary was later targeted in the end zone on a crossing route, but was overthrown by Tyrod Taylor.
2017 Week 10 vs NO (2 / 1 / 7 / 1 rec)
Nick O'Leary's lone catch was a seven-yard touchdown reception on a garbage time pass from Nathan Peterman late in the fourth quarter. With Charles Clay's return from injury, O'Leary was relegated to TE2 duties in the Buffalo offense.
2017 Week 9 vs NYJ (5 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
Nick O'Leary made a nice catch on a crossing route, and appeared to be down by contact on the play. However, there was no whistle and O'Leary got off the ground to run after the catch, and was subsequently stripped of the ball and the Jets recovered. O'Leary has dependable hands, but is not a dynamic athlete to create much after the catch.
2017 Week 8 vs OAK (3 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Nick O'Leary's lone catch was on a check down across the middle for 5 yards. He was also targeted in the red zone but the ball was into a contested area, and thrown too high for Nick O'Leary to catch. This is the second straight week where Buffalo has gone away from the tight end screen game that was featured when Charles Clay was healthy.
2017 Week 7 vs TB (2 / 2 / 58 / 0 rec)
Nick O'Leary caught both of his targets for 58 yards. O'Leary stretched the seam on his first catch showing solid hands on a highpoint catch. His other target was a check down where he ran after the catch for 32 yards. Prior to Charles Clay's injury, Buffalo's offense featured designed tight end screen for Clay. In relief of Clay who was injured during week 5, O'Leary ran similar screen routes that were in the game plan. However, this week, there were no such screen plays in the game plan, and O'Leary's work was more of a role player than a feature piece of the offense.
2017 Week 5 vs CIN (6 / 5 / 54 / 0 rec)
Nick O'Leary capitalized on absence of Charles Clay with a team high five catches for a team high 54 yards. O'Leary was a reliable but non- dynamic option in the passing game. He is at best an average athlete at the position, and gained what was open, but is not expected to create more for Buffalo's offense. O'Leary was the clear replacement for Clay after Clay left with an injury.
