Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 17 vs BUF (10 / 8 / 66 / 1 rec)

If nothing else looks good in the Jets offense, at least the chemistry between Jamison Crowder and Sam Darold continues to. Crowder was the target on Darnold's interception, a ball thrown just behind the receiver which allowed the defender to disrupt the pass, resulting in a tip by Crowder a pick by the defense. However the two hooked up in the fourth quarter on a 2nd and 1 at the goal line. On the play, Crowder ran a short slant and Darnold delivered the ball a little high, but Crowder easily reached up and caught it.

2019 Week 16 vs PIT (8 / 4 / 60 / 0 rec)

Crowder led the team in yardage, but he and Sam Darnold are struggling to be on the same page. He also had a massive drop which stalled out a drive in the second quarter, one he should have reeled in. He did have two longer plays -- a 17-yard catch on a nice out route and a 15-yard play where he got wide open across the middle and was able to turn upfield for a big gain -- and recovered a Sam Darnold fumble on the opening drive.

2019 Week 15 vs BAL (11 / 6 / 90 / 2 rec)

Jamison Crowder didn't see a target until the end of the first quarter, but after that he was off to the races. He scored his first touchdown with a toe tap catch in the end zone, as quarterback Sam Darnold put it where only Crowder was grabbing it. On the second touchdown, Darnold was under duress, but stayed calm and moved up in the pocket until Crowder could break free. Then Crowder made a nice catch, slipped a tackle and sauntered into the end zone. The most impressive thing about Crowder's game against Baltimore was his ability after the catch. Crowder continually make tacklers miss, accelerated into the open field and gained extra yards. More than once he made a move that resulted in some nice bonus yards for his team. Crowder did a lot of different things this game, and ran routes at all levels, showing the versatility he brings to the Jets offense on each catch.

2019 Week 14 vs MIA (7 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

Crowder continues to get targets but he and quarterback Sam Darnold just don't seem to be on the same page anymore, and so are connecting on less then half of their attempts. That, coupled with the re-emergence of Robby Anderson has made Crowder an afterthought in this offense.

2019 Week 13 vs CIN (9 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Crowder was targeted the second most frequently in the offense, but struggled to reel the ball in. The potential was there, but he and Darnold were never really quite on the same page, and the Bengals did a good job of limiting Crowder's ability to get free on intermediate routes. With Robby Anderson playing well, the Jets don't need to keep forcing the ball to Crowder like they did this week.

2019 Week 12 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

Crowder got a lot of attention from the Oakland Raiders and was one of the few players they seemed able to contain. Once Sam Darnold saw Crowder was not as open as he often is, he merely found other targets.

2019 Week 11 vs WAS (8 / 5 / 76 / 1 rec)

Crowder continues to get targets from Sam Darnold and is clearly the receiver the second year quarterback trusts the most. Crowder's sharp route running and sure hands continually allow him to make the most of his chances, and he made a nice catch down the sideline for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. On the play, Crowder sped past the defender and Darnold dropped a nice pass right in Crowder's hands along the sideline, which the receiver then took the rest of the way to the end zone.

2019 Week 10 vs NYG (6 / 5 / 81 / 1 rec)

While Crowder wasn't the most targeted Jet, it certainly looks like he is the one most frequently on the same page as quarterback Sam Darnold. The best moment for the two on Sunday was on Crowder's touchdown. On the play, Darnold did an excellent job of delivering the ball almost on sheer upper body motion in a tight pocket, and Crowder ran a tremendous drag route, splitting the zone defense up to get open. Darnold delivered the pass, and then Crowder suddenly stopped, making defenders react too late to stop him from changing direction and scoring.

2019 Week 9 vs MIA (9 / 8 / 83 / 1 rec)

This was the week where Crowder and Sam Darnold connected, doing so four times in the very first drive, which was capped off with a 12 yard touchdown pass to Crowder. On the play, Crowder lined up inside, and crossed underneath to the outside. The coverage appeared to get caught in the crowd, allowing the receiver to get wide open on his way into the end zone for a simple reception. He also made a very nice catch on a throw later in the quarter, when Darnold had to throw off his back foot, and Crowder reached back to make the catch. The two seem to be on the same page now, and that could mean good things for Crowder going forward.

2019 Week 8 vs JAX (5 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)

While everyone hoped the return of Sam Darnold would mean a rise in Jamison Crowder's prominence, that hasn't been the case. Crowder still seems to get open on a semi-regular basis but either Darnold isn't seeing him or the play is schemed away from Crowder. Given Crowder's ability on short-to-intermediate routes, you would think the Jets would use him as an outlet for Darnold when under pressure, but that's not happening. Whatever magic they had in Week 1, it's long gone.

2019 Week 7 vs NE (5 / 4 / 26 / 0 rec)

Crowder was the only reliable player in the passing game, and even then he had a hard time breaking out of coverage. Even when he did, Darnold was under such duress that it was all he could do to get the ball out, which unfortunately went to the other team when he did. Crowder wasn't even very effective on shorter routes against a tough Pats defense.

2019 Week 6 vs DAL (9 / 6 / 98 / 0 rec)

What a difference a quarterback makes. Sam Darnold has returned and Crowder is again his top target, with the receiver gashing the Dallas defense coming out of the slot. He and Robby Anderson were hard for the Cowboys to deal with when they were on the same side of the field as well, and more than once the secondary was behind covering one while focused on the other. Crowder isn't leaving the coverage behind with speed like Anderson, but continued to be more than capable of adding a few yards after the catch on average. He was also the target on Sam Darnold's interception and while it originally appeared to be a miscommunication between the two, it seems as though it was just a poor throw by the quarterback.

2019 Week 5 vs PHI (3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Crowder is back in the slot, but that really didn't result in anything. He saw almost no passes as Luke Falk locked onto Demaryius Thomas and LeVeon Bell. Even when he got separation, Falk never saw him.

2019 Week 3 vs NE (5 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)

Normally the Jets slot receiver, Crowder was outside more than usual Sunday, though to no real effect. He has seen his targets dip each week since Week 1, though that's largely because quarterback Sam Darnold has been out with mono. Still, the Jets don't seem to be scheming him open either, or trying to come up with new ways to get him the ball.

2019 Week 2 vs CLE (6 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)

After a massive amount of targets in Week 1, Crowder disappeared in Week 2. He saw just one target in the first half, and like Robby Anderson, only saw real action when the playbook opened up with Luke Falk. What was most baffling about the day for Crowder is that his ability to find the open middle of the field on quick slants seems like it would have been an ideal way for the Jets to overcome a fearsome Browns pass rush. He did have one very nice catch in the second half when he used the cushion afforded by a zone defense to split two defenders, make a catch and gain some more yards before stumbling and getting tackled.

2019 Week 1 vs BUF (17 / 14 / 99 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)

Along with LeVeon Bell, Jamison Crowder was the only real bright spot for the Jets offense. Crowder was by far the most targeted member of the team as well as the one with the most catches. Unfortunately he has the dubious honor now of being the first player in history to have 14 catches but under 100 yards. Crowder had a knack for getting open out of the slot, and even when he didn't, he did a fine job snagging the ball even while being blanketed by coverage.
