2015 Week 10 vs CIN (5 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
Only two receptions on the evening, Washington had an impressive 19 yard catch on a playaction on a smoke screen when he hit the seam. Late in the fourth quarter, Washington had a 13 yard reception to keep a drive going late off the arm of Yates.
2015 Week 8 vs TEN (6 / 4 / 74 / 1 rec)
The veteran wide receiver continues to make plays for the offense and three of his four receptions want over 10 yards or more. His big play came on a 42 yard deep ball touchdown from Hoyer when he ran past the cornerback to win a one-on-one ball but was knocked out of the game after he landed hard on his hip in the end zone. Washington did have two drops early in the game that would have been first downs, which he has struggled with all season.
2015 Week 7 vs MIA (16 / 9 / 127 / 2 rec)
Absent from the offense for the past two weeks, Nate Washington came up with a solid day for the Texans. He had three receptions for over 20 yards (27,23,22) and one thing that is not discussed enough is his ability to get yards after the catch. He had 27 yards after the catch and he picked up where he left off when he went out with his hamstring injury. Washington took advantage of the Dolphins paying attention to Hopkins the entire game and he was left in one-on-one situations and took advantage of it with Hoyer.
2015 Week 3 vs TB (9 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
His biggest blunder came on a slant and go that he beat his man on but pulled up late almost like he was not getting the football. Mallett threw it in his direction and it would have been dropped in his hands if he kept going. It would have been a big play but that lack of focus was a concern in the situation is occurred. Washington continues to get passes thrown his way but he was only able to haul in four of those. The positive is that all four of those receptions went over 10 yards with 14 be the long reception for eh afternoon. Washington will continue to get work opposite of Hopkins.
2015 Week 2 vs CAR (8 / 3 / 63 / 0 rec)
It was a rough day at the office after an impressive week one. Washington had two costly drops that would have resulted in chunk plays. Mallett did a good job of extending the play to find Washington with no one in front of him which resulted in a the biggest drop of the two. Washington's biggest reception went for 48 yards when he lined up in the slot and caught a deep ball from Mallett. It would have gone for a touchdown but Washington lost his balance and fell down. He continues to be a constant deep threat beating cornerbacks off the line of scrimmage but he was not being targeted. It was a down day for Washington but he is getting open consistently, now he needs to get passes thrown in his direction.
2015 Week 1 vs KC (11 / 6 / 105 / 0 rec)
"Uncle Nate" had a big coming out party for the offense and he showed he has plenty left in the tank. His first reception came on a wheel route over a linebacker in coverage for 19 yards. Washington had three receptions which resulted in a catch and run that the Texans have missed for some time in the offense. He had a catch and run for 32 yards which helped him eclipse the 100 yard plateau for the day. Washington had one target in the end zone that should have been called a pass interference but was not which ended up being a field goal. Washington was big target opposite of Hopkins all day.
