2007 Week 2 vs CIN (5 / 4 / 44 / 2 rec)

2007 Week 4 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 10 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius played a possession receiver and downfield blocker role for most of the day. He did get underneath the defensive zone coverage for a touchdown reception in the first quarter. He was a third option in the offense for most of the game.

Jurevicius came up with two key pass receptions in the third quarter, allowing the Browns to convert on third and 20 and third and 17. On both receptions, Jurevicius was able to find space in the zone defense and make the reception.

2007 Week 9 vs SEA (6 / 4 / 69 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius' biggest play of the game was his two point reception to help put the Browns ahead 30-27 and ensure that a field goal would only force an overtime. Jurevicius likewise benefited from the extra attention paid to Braylon Edwards.

2007 Week 11 vs BAL (5 / 4 / 82 / 0 rec)
Outside of one big catch, Jurevicius had a very quiet day as the Browns passing offense struggled to find rhythm. His biggest catch of the day was a 52 yard catch in the first half. Despite breaking away from his assigned defender, Jurevicius did not have the speed to break away from the remaining Ravens defenders and was tackled before the end zone.
2007 Week 12 vs HOU (7 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius continued in his role as possession receiver, making most of his catches in short yardage passing situations. His longest reception of the day, a 25 yard catch, came off a play action fake the opened up the right side of the field and allowed Anderson to connect with Jurevicius.

2007 Week 13 vs ARI (8 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)

2007 Week 15 vs BUF (5 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius played a small role in the game, with his biggest catch being a 25 yard reception that bounced off of Braylon Edwards and landed in his hands. Jurevicius proceeded to bolt down the center of the field, ultimately being caught by two Buffalo DB's. The Browns did try to work Jurevicius over the center of the field but here again the snow proved to rob him of both speed any cut ability.
2007 Week 16 vs CIN (6 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius was largely a non-factor in the game as most of Anderson's looks were to either Edwards or Winslow and his third look was usually toward the running back, either Lewis or Wright.
2007 Week 17 vs SF (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius was a non-factor in the game but his only catch of the game was notable as it was Brady Quinn's first completion as a professional. Jurevicius finished the game with 12 yards on one catch.
2006 Week 1 vs NO (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jurevicius was targeted only once in this game, and drew a pass interference call which subsequently led to a Reuben Droughns touchdown.
2006 Week 9 vs SD (7 / 3 / 76 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius was surprisingly active in the game, especially early on. He hauled in a 52 yard bomb on the Browns' opening possession and was much more involved in the offensive sets as the game went along. San Diego CBs had a lot of trouble with the bigger Jurevicius, twice getting called for penalties in addition to getting beaten on fade routes and deep balls on a couple of occasions. One of the penalties was especially costly, as it negated a Marlon McCree fumble recovery by the Chargers, and awarded possession back to the Browns. Jurevicius appeared to injure his lower back late in the game and came off the field for several plays, but was soon back in just in time to recover a Jerome Harrison fumble and save possession. On Cleveland's lone touchdown drive that culminated in a Braylon Edwards' touchdown, Jurevicius nearly scored one play earlier. On a high pass in the end zone, he leaped for the ball and actually had it in his hands momentarily as he was landing, but rookie CB Antonio Cromartie knocked it away at the last minute.

2006 Week 12 vs CIN (5 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius had a quiet afternoon, and did not seem to be on the same page as Charlie Frye in this game, who was under a heavy pass rush all afternoon, as he failed to break off his routes to create opportunities for Frye to make the plays necessary to maintain possession of the ball.
2006 Week 13 vs KC (8 / 6 / 75 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius appeared to be the obvious favorite receiver for the two Browns' signal callers. He rewarded their trust, catching six of the eight passes sent his way. He was really good at pulling in anything close to him with very sure hands.
2006 Week 14 vs PIT (8 / 7 / 111 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius had his best game of the season and second quality game in a row with seven receptions and 111 yards. He became QB Derek Anderson's most reliable target immediately by opening up the game with a sliding 16 yard catch over the middle. Three plays later he turned an out pattern up field for 18 yards. He wasn't targeted again until late in the first half, but caught both passes to him, including a 27 yarder where he had to cross the field right-to-left to haul in a pass from heavily pressured Anderson. Jurevicius also caught two passes of 11 and 14 yards to help set up Cleveland's only touchdown in the fourth quarter.
2006 Week 15 vs BAL (9 / 5 / 46 / 1 rec)

2006 Week 16 vs TB (5 / 4 / 58 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius looked to be Anderson's only reliable target in this game, but after being driven down hard, was again forced to the sideline with symptoms similar to last week, when he was reported to have sustained a concussion.
2005 Week 1 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 64 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius' second quarter touchdown was likely the easiest he'd ever seen as the safety was confused by Hasselbeck's late check down and Jurevicius was all alone in the end zone. He was shaken up after being hit hard and holding on to a nice fourth quarter reception. Alex Bannister appeared to take his place for the balance of the game.
2005 Week 2 vs ATL (3 / 1 / 6 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius is settling in to the third receiver role well as a Seahawk after scoring his second touchdown in as many weeks. Jurevicius is also being used on some longer routes as well. He set up SS Bryan Scott with a great double move, and drew a pass interference call on Scott as he was about to blow by him for what could have been a huge gain. Scott had no choice but to grab hold of Jurevicius to prevent the big play.
2005 Week 3 vs ARI (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius consistently entered the game when Seattle went to three receiver sets moving WR Bobby Engram into the slot. However, only six of Seattle's 28 first downs came on third down. They moved the ball so well in their base package that Jurevicius wasn't needed in this game.
2005 Week 4 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius saw only one target in the first half, and didn't see the ball again until the fourth quarter. Jurevicius got open off a beautiful spinning double move down the left sideline, but QB Matt Hasselbeck overthrew him. However, Hasselbeck came right back to him on a 17 yard hookup that started Seattle's game tying drive in the fourth quarter.
2005 Week 5 vs STL (10 / 9 / 137 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius had a career day filling the number one receiver role this week for Seattle. He got off to a solid start early in the game pulling in a 52 yard reception after QB Matt Hasselbeck rolled out away from the pass rush. Jurevicius recognized what was going on and broke his route down field giving Hasselbeck an outlet. His touchdown reception came on a crossing route. Jurevicius was matched up with a linebacker and simply outran him across the field. Late in the game when Seattle started to see the game possibly slipping away Hasselbeck and Jurevicius connected on three consecutive short out routes leading to a field goal by PK Josh Brown.
2005 Week 6 vs HOU (5 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius saw six targets, the most of any Seattle wideout in this game and capitalized by scoring the Seahawks' only receiving touchdown. He continues to look like a solid WR.
2005 Week 7 vs DAL (8 / 6 / 54 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius remained as QB Matt Hasselbeck's most reliable target while both starters are out with injury. Jurevicius ran mostly short crossing routes along with some quick slants and outs. However, Jurevicius was injured on the sideline as the Seahawks drove down the field for their lone touchdown. The injury occurred when Jurevicius bobbled a pass that was nearly picked off, but when the defensive back also bobbled the ball Jurevicius got it back. He wasn't unable to prepare himself for the big hit that came because he was concentrating on catching the ball. Even though the made the catch, there was a holding penalty on an offensive lineman that negated the play.
2005 Week 9 vs ARI (6 / 4 / 31 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius saw all six of his targets in the first half when the game was still tight. He recorded 31 yards on four catches and caught Hasselbeck's only touchdown pass of the game.
2005 Week 10 vs STL (7 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)
Even though Jurevicius has been starting for several weeks now, he and QB Matt Hasselbeck appeared to be on different pages multiple times in the first half. Two Hasselbeck passes landed on the ground when Jurevicius ran a different route than was expected. One of them was on third down inside the ten yard line. His only target in the second half came on the final Seattle drive. After a carry for a loss of one on first down, Hasselbeck hit Jurevicius on a quick slant for ten yards setting up an easy third and one. The play was huge in helping the Seahawks milk the clock to end the game.
2005 Week 11 vs SF (7 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius was definitely the second option behind WR Bobby Engram from the beginning of the game. Jurevicius was targeted within ten yards of the line of scrimmage during most of the game. At the start the third quarter he was targeted in the end zone once and nearly scored on another play on their following drive. Jurevicius caught a quick hitch, and broke a tackle making a dive for the goal line. The play was originally called a touchdown, but instant replay ruled him down at the one yard line leading to the second Alexander touchdown. Later in the game Jurevicius was targeted on one deep ball that he nearly made a play on, but couldn't come up with the ball.
2005 Week 12 vs NYG (13 / 8 / 137 / 2 rec)
Jurevicius had a career day, recording 137 yards on eight catches and a pair of touchdowns. He used every bit of his five inch height advantage in out jumping rookie cornerback Corey Webster for his first quarter touchdown. He made the clutch catches when Hasselbeck needed him and was far and away the team's receiving leader in this game.
2005 Week 13 vs PHI (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius, a renowned Eagles' killer, failed to register a catch. He was targeted on a fade in the end zone on Seattle's opening drive, but was unable to get both of his feet in bounds.
2005 Week 14 vs SF (4 / 4 / 63 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius caught his eighth touchdown pass of the season on the Seahawks' first offensive play of the second quarter. In his usual fashion, he used his height advantage to make a leaping catch in the corner of the end zone. Jurevicius was seemingly robbed of another touchdown seconds before halftime when the officials called phantom offsetting penalties following an outstanding catch/no-catch in the corner of the end zone. Had the penalties not been called, the play would have been reviewed and undoubtedly ruled a touchdown. Jurevicius finished the game with 63 yards and one touchdown before Seattle coaches decided to pull the key starters to begin the fourth quarter.
2005 Week 15 vs TEN (5 / 3 / 31 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius only saw one target in the first half, but was a big contributor after Seattle fell behind by ten points. Jurevicius abused a defensive back at the goal line and caught a short slant for a four yard touchdown. He used his size well keeping his body between the defender and the ball. He also had two nice receptions late in the game to keep drives alive.
2005 Week 16 vs IND (2 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
Jurevicius made his first catch during the opening drive of the third quarter. He made a second reception for 14 yards on the last play of the third quarter.
2005 Week 17 vs GB (3 / 2 / 11 / 1 rec)
Jurevicius caught an out on third and seven on the first Seattle possession, but ended up one yard short of the mark. His only other target in the first half was a deep ball down the left sideline just before half. He did a nice job fighting for the ball, but was out of bounds and couldn't come up with the ball. Jurevicius capped the Seahawks' opening drive in the second half pulling in a five yard touchdown on a pattern across the back of the end zone. He did a nice job of finding the hole in the back of the zone.
