From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): PItta owners have to be frustrated with Owen Daniels bogarting both touchdowns, but know that the tight end's central role in the Kubiak offense will get some of those scores going his way soon enough.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs CIN (15 / 10 / 83 / 0 rec)

Dennis Pitta was used to attack the middle of the field and was easily the most efficient Ravens receiver. He got the ball on a screen pass and showed a nice juke move to evade Vontaze Burfict in the open field. Pitta did have one drop on a short 4 yard curl route that wouldn't have resulted in anything. Flacco tried to fit the ball into Pitta for a long touchdown as the first half came to a close but the pass sailed too high. Pitta was peppered with targets in the short middle of the field and was very effective in that role. Pitta made a nice catch down the middle of the field getting behind Lamur for a big gain. He was pretty well covered on the play but Flacco made a nice bucket throw. Flacco again missed Pitta in the red zone as he ran open across the middle of the field.

2014 Week 2 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

Dennis Pitta didn't receive the same volume of targets he did in week 1 but looked reliable and solid in his opportunities. He's still Flacco's most trusted target over the middle of the field. Pitta finds holes in zones constantly and is athletic enough to exploit man coverage. He did on one such play lined up in the slot across from Shazier. He ran a simple slant route leaving Shazier in the dust for a gain of 20. The two touchdowns may be concerning for Pitta's outlook. Pitta was blocking on both of Daniels' touchdowns and was often running to the flat while Daniels made catches over the middle. Pitta did come wide open in the end zone but immediate interior pressure didn't allow Flacco to see Pitta open until too late.
