2013 Game Summaries
Week 2 - Burton was the third receiver on the field. His first reception came in the second quarter. He could only gain a yard on a bubble screen that the Raiders quickly got to. Another screen play gave Burton his second reception, a 22 yard gain, but this time it was a screen that was a fake allowing Burton to run free down the sideline. The Jaguars tried to get Burton free on an end around in the third quarter, but the Raiders LaMarr Houston read the play brilliantly and tackled him almost immediately after he got the ball. Henne tried to find Burton by the sideline in the fourth quarter, but Henne's pass lofted and never got near the receiver as a defender breaked on it.
Week 3 - Burton caught a five yard out route to start the Jaguars' first drive of the second quarter. Burton caught a pass underneath to start the Jaguars' next drive, as he ran underneath the offensive line after a hard play-action. Burton was the primary option for the Jaguars' passing attack. He dropped his next target as he ran free on a shallow crossing route. Burton followed that up with a curl route on second and 12. He caught the ball short of a first down marker against off coverage, but broke a tackle to get a first down. Burton caught another pass for a first down on the Jagaurs' second drive of the second half when he found space on a curl route over the middle. On third and nine after Cecil Shorts' big play, Burton saw a short target that Richard Sherman punched away from him.
Week 10 - Burton caught his only target, it came in the fourth quarter. He ran a quick slant route for a first down before taking a big hit from a defender.
