Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 8 vs SEA (39 / 52 / 460 / 1 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

He converted his first third down with a short flat route to Austin Hooper to extend the initial drive. He followed up with a short pass to Devonta Freeman to the opposite flat near midfield. Calvin Ridley dropped a short slant on third and six of the first drive after cornerback Shaq Griffin knocked the ball away. The target was at the receiver's back shoulder. Although it should have been caught and secured, the placement made the corner's job easier to defend the target. Schaub began the second series with a play-action out for 25 yards to Julio Jones. Schaub worked a variety of play-action passes in this game and got Atlanta past midfield with a pair of throws. He took pressure up the middle but found Austin Hooper for a couple of yards to prevent the sack. James Carpenter's replacement Wes Schweitzer committed a false start to force a third and long. Schaub overshot Jones on a skinny post during the third series. Schaub found Jones a couple of times later in the drive, but one of them was a pass interference on Jones up the right sideline while Schaub fired the ball under pressure up the middle. Mychal Kendricks anticipated Schaub's passing lane on a skinny post to Jones later in the drive and made a leaping interception. He found Jones on a play action out route against zone late in the half. Once again Schaub was just behind Justin Hardy on a slant that Griffin broke up at the catch point. Seattle's safety Akeem King dropped what should have been an easy interception on second down from the Seattle 35 late in the half. No receiver was in the area. He lost a fumble at the end of the half against a three-man rush on a Hail Mary situation. Schaub found Hooper on a play-action throwback screen for a big gain to begin the second half with a 35-yard gain. He found Julio Jones on a fin route to reach midfield during the second drive of the third quarter and then a pair of targets to Jones late in the third quarter on the following drive to get Atlanta to midfield once again. He found Jones for 22 yards on a slant that was actually accurate early in the fourth quarter but then threw a hospital ball to Ridley on a corner route thrown behind the receiver inside the 10. Ridley hit his head on the turf after catching the ball, taking the hit and holding on. Schaub led Atlanta's two-minute offense to a drive that cut the lead to 10 points with a play-action touchdown under pressure with a low throw only where Austin Hooper could make the catch. After a three-and-out by Seattle, Jones caught a deep out on a well-anticipated throw by Schaub but came up limping after the wrap at the boundary. He then found Ridley across the middle to get Atlanta to the Seattle 45 on a 30-yardpickup. Schaub drove Atlanta with less than three minutes left to cut the lead to seven points with 1:17 left and another shot at an onside kick.

2019 Week 7 vs LAR (6 / 6 / 65 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

He found Hooper with 5:00 left in the flat for a short gain. He found Justin Hardy against a soft zone up the seam to get across midfield and then Austin Hooper to the 14 in the same area of the field. He returned to Hardy once again in the right flat for 10 yards and then back to Hooper up the right seam for Atlanta's only score of the afternoon.
