2014 Week 13 vs CAR (2 / 2 / 40 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Jarius Wright has been very quiet the last month or so and didn't see many targets Sunday, though he made what he got count. He showed his ability to produce yards after the catch on a screen where he followed his blockers to gain five yards. He was also the target on a very nice deep throw by quarterback Teddy Bridgerwater which went for 35 yards. Bridgewater hit Wright in stride, though the receiver did have to slow just a little bit. Wright was able to run for another 10 yards before being tackled though, so it didn't slow him down much.
2014 Week 14 vs NYJ (5 / 4 / 123 / 1 rec, 1 / 23 / 0 rush)
Wright actually had a quiet day until the fourth quarter. With 16 seconds left, quarterback Teddy Bridegwater had to scramble, looking for help. Wright did a good job of getting his body between his quarterback and the defender, so Bridgewater could get him the ball. Wright made a great catch with a defender draped all over him and held onto the ball as Darrin Walls was draped over him. His biggest catch was the 87-yard catch and run to win the game in overtime. Wright caught a simple screen pass, but Jets safety Jaiquawn Jarrett came up immediately and then missed the tackle. Wright had two good blocks in front of him and once he hit the second level as since Jarrett had stepped up to make the play there was nobody around to stop him. Overall, Wright was not a factor in the gameplan, but when he had a moment it was a big one.
2014 Week 15 vs DET (6 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Wright continues to be well behind Greg Jennings and Charles Johnson in the overall pecking order, but when the Detroit Lions were able to blanket one of the other two, Teddy Bridgewater would get the ball to Wright. That was only partially successful but Wright did a good job gaining yards after the catch on his receptions. He has speed and some athleticism, and we have seen him succeed with more regular work. It could be that he is just stuck behind two talented receivers right now.
