Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 17 vs TB (8 / 30 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
He entered the game on the fifth play of the first drive. A play later, he ran hard for three yards, getting hit near the line of scrimmage in the hips. A holding call nullified the play. Hill caught a 2nd and 18 pass in the shallow flat and broke three tackles to push his way for a 9-yard gain. However another penalty put Atlanta into a 3rd and 24. Ryan ran hard up right guard for 11 yards and finished hard on the safety but a holding penalty on the right tackle nullified the play and really was the reason Hill found the cutback. The Buccaneers swarmed Brian Hill on a shotgun delay for a short loss on second and long in the third quarter. Hill got stood up left end inside Atlanta's 25 late in the third quarter. He only earned a yard up the middle on second and three but had to fight through two defenders penetrating into the backfield. He earned 12 yards off left end with a nice cutback inside the flat defender for the first down late in the game. Two plays later, Hill earned nine yards with a strong finish on a pitch to the right.
2018 Week 16 vs CAR (8 / 115 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
He earned a short gain up the middle for two yards in the red zone against no openings in the Carolina defense during the first drive. Once again, Hill got hemmed in up the middle during the drive and had to slowly find a bounce-out for a short gain from the Carolina three to set up a third and goal. He didn't earn more than a yard on a second-down run later in the third quarter while Coleman earned a breather. Hill made a nice bounce to right guard and then cut back against the grain to the left flat and up the sideline for a strong gain but then punched Kareem Jackson with a stiff-arm to the head as he left the boundary. He then had to strong runs up the left side of the line, including a play into the flat where he hurdled a defender. However, he fumbled the ball during the hurdle and Carolina recovered. Atlanta continued using Hill during the following series.
2018 Week 14 vs GB (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
He earned a first down on a short run in the fourth quarter--his first playing time of the season in the middle of the fourth quarter.
