Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 4 vs MIA (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
With Ivory back from injury, Bilal Powell was relegated to third-down work. Powell caught one pass for twelve yards, but left during the second quarter with a groin injury.
2015 Week 3 vs PHI (10 / 31 / 0 rush, 8 / 7 / 44 / 0 rec)
Bilal Powell started in place of the injured Chris Ivory and was utilized as a true 'bell cow' running back. New York, however, fell into an early double digit hole, relegating Powell to a one-dimension, passing game role. Powell primarily served as a check down option for Fitzpatrick, catching short dump off passes for minimal gains. Powell was able to get what was blocked, but does not possess open field moves to rip off big gains. New York's offensive line had some trouble against Philadelphia's front seven which didn't make matters easier for him.
2015 Week 2 vs IND (12 / 38 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 16 / 0 rec)
Bilal Powell saw 16 touches in this game as he split duties with Chris Ivory against the underrated Colts front seven. The screen passes were largely ineffective all night though Powell did have 4 catches for 16 yards. Powell was stuffed at the line of scrimmage by Vonte Davis, who was injured on the play, in the first half on one of these screen passes. Powell boasted a meager 3.16 yards per carry in this game but was dependable for the Jets. He nearly lost his first fumble of his Jets career in the 4th quarter but they would recover. The very next play Ryan Fitzpatrick hit Powell for a 9-yard gain and first down in the slot. Later on the drive he would break his longest run of the night breaking a few tackles for 23 yards to the left side of the field.
2015 Week 1 vs CLE (12 / 62 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Powell played on some third downs during the first three quarters, but didn't receive early down work until late in the fourth quarter. Powell had a few impressive runs against Cleveland's second stringers, which included a 21-yard burst off right tackle. Ivory is the clear 'early down' bellcow for this offense, but Powell is a good pass blocker and e respective pass catcher.
