Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 12 vs DET (4 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec)
Miller was largely a non-factor in this game but did catch a 26-yard reception in which he simply outran Nevin Lawson on a deep in route over the middle. Miller is playing more of a deep threat role in this offense along with Allen Robinson as Taylor Gabriel and Tarik Cohen play more of the underneath roles.
2018 Week 11 vs MIN (3 / 2 / 25 / 1 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Anthony Miller's snap counts continue to grow as he was on the field for 81% of the game this past week and while he did not have a significant role in this offense this week as he had just three targets, he did make one of the critical catches this week in the Bears win. Miller made an unbelievable catch on an 18-yard touchdown pass in which Trubisky was scrambling for his life and Miller was able to keep working and find a spot where Trubisky could throw it to. Trubisky underthrew the ball, but Miller was able to make an amazing diving catch coming back to it for the touchdown.
2018 Week 10 vs DET (6 / 5 / 122 / 1 rec)
Anthony Miller's role in this offense continues to grow as his receiving yards have increased for the fifth consecutive week this week and he broke out with a huge game. Miller's day was primarily setup on two plays. The first play was an out route 15 yards downfield and Miller was able to shake off the defender who went high on the tackle which allowed Miller to score on a 45-yard touchdown. The second play was an in-route ten yards downfield, but Miller was able to find space in the zone, juke a safety and cut upfield for 55 yards. Miller will continue to rely on big plays to consistently have value, but he continues to develop and gain the coaches trust every week.
2018 Week 9 vs BUF (6 / 5 / 49 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Anthony Miller's role in this offense continues to grow especially as Allen Robinson missed another game this week. Miller led the team in targets and does a tremendous job going up and catching the ball at its high point as he does a tremendous job catching the ball with his hands instead of his body. Miller's role will be a question moving forward as the Bears may get Allen Robinson back this week. Miller lined up all over the field in this game including out of the slot and out wide which could indicate that he will continue to have a role even when Robinson returns.
2018 Week 8 vs NYJ (7 / 3 / 37 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
The signs continue to be there for the rookie that the Bears want to continue to get him involved in the deep passing attack especially with Allen Robinson sidelined during this game. Miller once again had seven targets in this game and after not being able to connect on his first three targets ended up making two spectacular catches one on a seam route in which Miller took a big hit from the safety and the other in the end zone for a touchdown in which he had the defender face guarding him but was still able to find the ball and get his feet in at the back of the end zone.
2018 Week 7 vs NE (7 / 2 / 35 / 0 rec)
Miller continues to grow in this offense even though the results haven't been there. Miller saw seven targets in this game including several deep throws down the field. Trubisky came out after the game and talked about how he was impressed with Miller's route running ability throughout the game. Miller should have had a touchdown on a badly underthrown ball by Trubisky in which Miller had the perfect route if the ball was thrown deep enough, but it was underthrown by about 15 yards forcing Miller to slow down and have to come back to the ball which ended up being intercepted.
