Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 14 vs CHI (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Roberts was targeted twice on Sunday but both passes fell incomplete. He and Stafford weren't in sync on a deep throw into the red zone as Stafford threw away from coverage to the pylon and Roberts continued up the seam. The Bears recognized what the Lions were doing when they came out stacked on the top of the formation on Roberts' last target of the game. The bubble screen was broken up quickly and the ability of the Bears to quickly diagnose the Lions play made it a very dangerous throw and the Lions were lucky the ball went incomplete.

2016 Week 13 vs NO (7 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)

Roberts was a little more involved in the game plan with Marvin Jones out on Sunday. Roberts took a slant pass early in the game that went for 16 yards and another that went for eight yards. He sat into a soft area of zone coverage and caught an 11-yard pass and helped the Lions passing game by generating first downs. The Lions took a deep shot down the field to Roberts as he ran an out and up and beat Saints defender Sterling Moore but Moore recovered and got his hands in right as the ball arrived. The ball might have been a touch underthrown and you could argue that Roberts should have caught the pass as it did hit both hands. Roberts was targeted two more times but the Saints defenders did a good job of jamming him at the line of scrimmage and he could not get off the line of scrimmage with one target coming in the red zone. Roberts caught a quick slant on the left side of the formation but the Saints smothered the play and it went for no gain. Roberts had the kind of plays that could have led to a very big day as he was targeted in the red zone and down the field, but he settled for four catches and 35 yards.

2016 Week 12 vs MIN (4 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Roberts continues to get sprinkled into the offense on a minimum level and saw four targets in this game. He caught two passes for 19 yards with a long coming on a 14-yard out route for 14 yards near the end of the first half. Roberts did miss a huge opportunity and left a gigantic play on the field as he ran a slant towards the sideline and turned toward the middle of the field instead of continuing down the sideline. Stafford threw down the sideline and the ball fell incomplete, but it could have been a long touchdown were it not for the miscommunication.
