Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec)
Watson had a nice broken tackle on a 3rd and long to convert a first down. Beyond that, he didn't do much.
2019 Week 12 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Watson was targeted once. It could have been a possible TD, but Tom Brady threw it behind him.
2019 Week 11 vs PHI (4 / 3 / 52 / 0 rec)
Watson had a great diving catch for a chunk play, but on a day where the offense didn't do much, there wasn't much else to speak of. He's still low on the totem pole for targets, especially with N'Keal Harry back.
2019 Week 9 vs BAL (5 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)
Ben Watson's big highlight was dropping a deep pass as he fell to the ground. A night to forget with 28 total yards.
2019 Week 8 vs CLE (1 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
Watson had a really nice 26 yard converting catch while sliding, but wasn't targeted much beyond that. He also blocked reasonably well on a few plays.
2019 Week 7 vs NYJ (5 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Knocking off the rust with a pass clanging off his face mask, Watson caught a few passes including a nice 4th down conversion, but didn't do much else. He may not be a full time player with the Pats WR corps getting back on track health and depth wise, but he's the primary pass catching tight end and that won't change.
