Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 15 vs IND (6 / 10 / 68 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

If there was one player the Texans wanted for this situation it was T.J. Yates. He started slow and threw a costly interception to end the opening drive of the game trying to his DeAndre Hopkins with a back shoulder throw inside the 10 yard line when Hopkins went vertical instead. It was a miscommunication that proved costly early in the game. Yates worked primarily underneath and focused his throws on DeAndre Hopkins on early downs and went to Nate Washington on 3rd down situations. Yates' biggest gains came on pass interference calls trying to push the ball downfield and got a pass interference call on Hopkins to set up for a scoring opportunity. Yates longest throw on the day came on a 22-yard strike of Ryan Griffin coming across the field in stride. Yates had a scramble for a key first down but planted on his left leg and went down holding his left knee. Reports are saying Yates has torn his ACL and is out for the remainder of the season.

2015 Week 11 vs NYJ (16 / 34 / 229 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / -5 / 0 rush)

It was flashbacks to 2011 and T.J. Yates put together another big game to push the Texans into the win column. Yates lived large and went deep to DeAndre Hopkins for both of his touchdown passes. He missed Hopkins early in the 1st quarter on a double move when he beat Revis deep. He made up for it on a 61-yard deep post to Hopkins in stride when he beat Revis. Yates also hit Hopkins on a 20 yard touchdown pass down the right side of the numbers for another game changing play. Yates was not helped out early by three drops from his receivers and he played the underneath throws majority of the game. Yates had 20 throws 9 yards or less on the day and completed nine of them with his biggest throw to Cecil Shorts for 35 yards. Yates had stretches where he was living dangerous and had three consecutive plays in the second quarter that resulted in a sack, that was him holding the ball too long, and two near interceptions on wild throws. This has been Yates game as a starter, play the dump off game and swing big with deep throws and it paid off in a big way on Sunday vs. the Jets.

2015 Week 10 vs CIN (5 / 11 / 69 / 1 / 0 pass, 2 / -2 / 0 rush)

He came in relief when Hoyer was knocked out with a concussion, and he had the biggest throw of the night to DeAndre Hopkins on a fade route for a 22-yard one-handed touchdown reception. He lived dangerous in his limited time late in the game and was focused on Hopkins which lead to some suspect throws. He did hit some big throws late for first downs to keep the clock ticking on throws to Nate Washington for 13 yards and Ryan Griffin for 15 yards. For only being in the offense for two weeks, Yates came in a did what he was supposed to.
