Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 9 vs BAL (14 / 10 / 81 / 1 rec)

If there's one positive for the Patriots, it's that Sanu is integrated into the offense. He led the team with 14 targets on the day, scored on a short pick play touchdown, and made several key catches. He also goofed a bit by not touching a defender on the ground who intercepted a Tom Brady pass, and missing that detail cost the Pats about 30 return yards. Sanu was used in a similar low depth of target way that Julian Edelman is for many routes and catches.

2019 Week 8 vs CLE (5 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Sanu only played about half the snaps, and made his presence known on a couple blocks and one first down conversion. He should see more snaps as he gets more familiar with the offense.

2019 Week 6 vs ARI (4 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)

Ryan had to target Sanu on the run under heavy pressure and airmailed the crossing route to Sanu in the middle of the fourth quarter. Sanu got Atlanta to its 40 on a route u the seam thanks to a fake screen to Jones. Sanu worked the flat to get within a yard of the first-down marker late in the game and into the red zone.

2019 Week 5 vs HOU (5 / 5 / 42 / 1 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Ryan found Sanu on a crossing route from a trips set at the Texans' 13 and dove across the goal line from the four for the first Falcons' touchdown. Sanu cut off a pass intended for Ridley on an improvised crossing route under pressure to convert a third-down during Atlanta's third possession. If he didn't cut off the route, the Texans likely intercept the target because Ridley fell to the ground. Sanu earned a yard when the Texans weren't fooled by the second Wildcat attempt in the game--this time down by 16 late in the third quarter. Sanu took a target in the flat in the flat on 4th and 1 and got the ball to the Texans' 1.

2019 Week 4 vs TEN (12 / 9 / 91 / 0 rec)

He drew a 32-yard pass interference penalty against the defense on a play-action throw-back early in the second series and put Atlanta across the 50 yard-line. Two plays later, Sanu earned nine yards in the middle of the field to reach the Titans' 11 yard-line. Sanu came up a yard short in the middle of the field against zone coverage in the middle of the second quarter, which led to a 4th and 1 situation just past midfield. Ryan overshot Sanu up the middle on a vertical shot late in the second quarter. Good extension by Sanu on a 3rd and 5 later in the drive to earn the first down on a 3rd and 5. Sanu earned another target in the flat for six yards late in the half. He opened the third quarter with an over route in the open zone for 28 yards and got Atlanta into the red zone. Sanu dropped a post route in the end zone on 3rd and 20 and the ball bounced off Sanu's hands. Sanu earned a 3rd and 16 pass for 15 over the middle late in the third quarter. Sanu begin another late-third-quarter drive with a seven-yard gain in the flat. Sanu converted a fourth down in the fourth quarter on a flat route in a tight window between zone defenders.

2019 Week 3 vs IND (6 / 6 / 75 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

He earned a dig route against zone coverage for 15 yards and then a route up the flat for another 10 with less than five minutes in the half. Ryan found Sanu for 16 yards on a dig route against man coverage. Sanu earned a flat route for 12 yards against zone on third down to get Atlanta inside the Colts' 30 yard-line late in the third quarter. He kept the ball on a third-down read-option play in the middle of the third quarter. He followed up with a crossing route for 10 yards. Sanu earned a dig route to reach field goal range late in the game and a late hit on Ryan got Atlanta in the red zone.

2019 Week 2 vs PHI (7 / 4 / 16 / 0 rec)

He made two men miss on a quick throw-out during the initial drive to earn a first down near midfield. He recovered a Luke Stocker fumble late in the third quarter and later made two men miss to earn a first down on a short pass later in the drive. Sanu worked back to the ball late in the game over the middle to set up a third and three.

2019 Week 1 vs MIN (6 / 5 / 57 / 0 rec)

He caught a crossing route for a first down but a James Carpenter hold nullified this play inside the two-minute warning. Sanu's biggest gain came as the clock ran out during the first half when he caught a target across an open zone. Sanu earned a short gain in the flat but had more if not for a great ankle tackle by Eric Kendricks in the open field.
