Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs NYJ (7 / 4 / 71 / 1 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Eric Ebron was Andrew Luck's most reliable pass catcher. Ebron is being used more and more as a downfield weapon instead of as a check down option or underneath receiver. Ebron is taking advantage of these opportunities and making plays. Ebron made his first catch running an out breaking route from the slot for 15 yards. Ebron was targeted at the 3 yard line on a screen pass was stopped for no gain. Ebron boxed out his defender and made a contested catch running a corner route for a 19 yard gain.

Ebron made a 19 yard catch right in the middle of the zone defense.
2018 Week 5 vs NE (15 / 9 / 105 / 2 rec)
Eric Ebron played by far his best game of the season and had more than 100 receiving yards for the first time in his career. Ebron was a match up problem for the Patriots' safeties and looked smooth and fast running downfield. Ebron dropped his first target in the flat. Ebron ran a curl route over the middle and picked up 8 yards on 3rd and 5. Ebron came wide open off of play action and made a nice adjustment to catch an underthrown pass from Luck for a gain of 17.

Ebron made a 7 yard catch underneath. Ebron came wide open off of play action for a 1 yard touchdown.
2018 Week 4 vs HOU (10 / 5 / 40 / 1 rec)

Eric Ebron picked up 4 yards running a curl on his first reception of the game. Eric Ebron picked up 6 yards on a check down in the flat from Luck. Ebron was again targeted in the end zone on the same route he scored on against the Bengals but the pass was broken up by Jalen Mills.

2018 Week 2 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 26 / 1 rec)
Eric Ebron's defender fell down as Ebron ran a crossing route and Ebron gained 13 yards on the play. Ebron ran a corner route lined up from the slot and caught a nice back shoulder throw from Luck for a 7 yard touchdown. Ebron picked up 7 yards running a shallow crossing route.

2018 Week 1 vs CIN (5 / 4 / 51 / 1 rec)
Eric Ebron picked up 12 yards on a check down from Luck running a crossing route. Eric Ebron came wide open downfield on what appeared to be a blown coverage. Luck found Ebron for an easy 26 yard touchdown. Ebron beat man coverage over the middle for a gain of 12.

Our View: Erik Swoope is already the #2 tight end with Jack Doyle out.
