2015 Week 16 vs TEN (5 / 3 / 42 / 1 rec)
If was a big day to see Nate Washginton finally answer the call who has been plagued with drops all season. Washington caught three passes and caught the football with confidence, for completions of 8, 21 and 13. Washington on the 8-yard reception ran an in route for a key first down early in the game. Then he opened up the second half with the first play for a 21-yard reception where he ran a nice stop route and created space and finished it with a nice run. His biggest reception on the day came on a 13 yard jump ball where Washington went over the defender for a touchdown. It was one of the few times that Washington won a one-on-one situation and it was from a well placed football from Weeden.
2015 Week 15 vs IND (6 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Worked primarily as an underneath target, Washington only had three catches and they went for 5, 6 and 7 yards. He was targets once deep and there were two other occasions they were looking for him deep but Weeden couldn't get the throw off. Washginton has been plagued by drops and he had bad one in the flats on third down late in the 4th quarter. Washington continues to be a role player and his drops continue to be an issue.
2015 Week 14 vs NE (4 / 1 / 49 / 0 rec)
Sooner or later Nate Washington is going to earn his keep. The chances are there for him but he is not winning the one-on-one situations in the passing game. Washington is showing that he can stretch the defense and Hoyer is having issues hitting him in stride. Even with that, Washington had his hand on two footballs that he let the defenders knock out his his hands on the way down. The first one came on a pass to the middle of the field and Washington when up and had his hand on the football but was knocked out late. The other came on a redbone target that would have been a touchdown but once again he had his hands on the ball only to have it punched away on the way down to the ground. There was an early glimmer of hope for Washington when Hoyer hit him for a 49 yard strike on a 3rd and long situation to open up the Texans attack in the 1st quarter. The Texans are trying everything to get Washington to take some of the offensive production but he is not holding up his end of the bargain.
2015 Week 13 vs BUF (11 / 6 / 44 / 0 rec)
The Texans worked Washington more underneath in the passing game. His longest reception was on an out route for 13 yards but was mainly doing his work in simple underneath routes. Washington again was plagued with the drops and had two more added to his total today. The Texans did try to get Washington vertical twice down the middle of the field but both fell incomplete with two balls that were under thrown into double coverage.
2015 Week 12 vs NO (4 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Nate Washington continues to do the dirty work for the offense and getting his looks offensively. His big reception came on a 32 yard crossing route last in the game to set up a score. Washington did have a key drop in the second quarter on a third down throw, which they continue to plague him all season. His numbers are not impressive but he is staying on the field as the team's second wide receiver.
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.
