Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs JAX (6 / 4 / 54 / 0 rec)

Eddie Royal has been a pleasant surprise this season for the Bears. After not practicing once leading up to Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Jaguars, Royal caught four passes on six targets for 54 yards before leaving the game due to injury in the second half. Royal has done a fantastic job of spacing the middle of the field. He routinely finds cracks in the defense that allows him to catch and run upfield. The only thing that will impact Royal's production in the coming weeks is his ability to stay on the field. Already not practicing, it will be interesting to see how the Bears treat his injury leading up to the Thursday Night Football matchup with the Green Bay Packers.

2016 Week 5 vs IND (9 / 7 / 43 / 0 rec)

Eddie Royal hardly looked like a guy who missed practice all week leading up to Sunday's game against the Colts. Playing with an injured calf muscle, Royal caught seven passes on nine targets for 43 yards. Brian Hoyer and Eddie Royal have foraged a nice relationship in the past three weeks since Jay Cutler was lost to an injury. Royal has 17 catches in the past three weeks and looks to be an ever-important cog in Dowell Loggains' offense. With Kevin White likely out for the season, there's even more reason to believe Royal will continue to pile up targets for the foreseeable future.

2016 Week 4 vs DET (7 / 7 / 111 / 1 rec)

Eddie Royal has been the saving grace of the Chicago Bears' offense. Royal was the Bears' best receiver in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Detroit Lions. Royal caught seven of seven targets for 111 yards and one touchdown. Royal once again looks to be one of the best slot receivers in football, returning to a form many of us forgot about after his two years in Chicago of being on and off the field. Chicago's offense, with Brian Hoyer under center, is set up perfectly for a receiver like Royal. Hoyer attempted 36 passes on Sunday, 33 of which came within 20 yards of the line of scrimmage. Unless the game plan changes in the coming weeks, there's no reason to think Royal can't be a five-to-seven reception guy on a weekly basis.

2016 Week 1 vs HOU (6 / 4 / 57 / 1 rec)

The Eddie Royal experience was quite enjoyable despite Sunday's game finishing in a loss for the Chicago Bears. Royal only played in nine games last season due to a rash of injuries that also kept him off the field for most of training camp and the preseason.  So, there wasn't much expectation for Royal, a longtime mate of Jay Cutler's. Royal looked smooth as silk on his way to catching four of six targets for 57 yards and a touchdown. Chicago desperately needed a slot receiver before it signed Royal. Now, over one year later, Chicago might actually have found the slot receiver it long desired.  There are few things in life for which we know to be certain. But one of those things involves Cutler and his tendencies to lock onto a receiver he loves. Royal can be that receiver, given he stays healthy.
