Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 7 vs PHI (6 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec)
Former Philadelphia Eagle Torrey Smith seemed to thrive on the us-against-them atmosphere as he impressed against his old teammates. Cam Newton was unable to connect with Smith early, a lofted pass on a corner route batted away at the last second by Malcolm Jenkins. Smith stayed involved, however, with a couple of rhythm plays to get small chunks of yardage. With the game entering its crucial end, Smith came up with a lovely grab on a high sideline pass from his quarterback. On 4th-and-10, with the game on the line, Smith managed to adjust his route just enough to give Newton a throwing window. His quarterback obliged despite being crunched by a defender. Smith saw daylight down the right sideline and turned the first down into a huge gain, a play that would eventually set up a game-winning score.
2018 Week 6 vs WAS (5 / 5 / 43 / 1 rec)
Torrey Smith was the forgotten man in the passing game in the first half, only to come alive in the second. Smith announced himself with a slick catch on a low throw from Cam Newton, then began to make hay with shorter routes designed to get him the ball quickly against soft coverage. Smith cashed in after being targeted three times on one drive, losing his defender in coverage on a shallow crossing pattern on the goal line. Newton spotted him wide open and tossed him an easy touchdown pass. Smith caught the subsequent two-point conversion pass on essentially the same play. It was a case of better late than never for Smith, who showed up for his quarterback when needed.
2018 Week 5 vs NYG (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Torrey Smith was completely blanked in this outing and seems to be the player on the outside looking in. With the offense mixing in Curtis Samuel and D.J. Moore to add a speed element, Smith's talents were not required. He tweaked a muscle in his leg, which may have explained his lack of impact.
2018 Week 3 vs CIN (6 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Torrey Smith endured a mixed bag of a game; from dropping an easy pass on a perfectly thrown dart from Cam Newton to producing a pair of critical third down catches with smooth route-running. Smith was the target on the opening play of the game, a deep shot down the right sideline that floated too far outside for the receiver to run underneath. Later in the game, a defensive back read Smith's route - an inside-breaking dig pattern - and undercut it, but was unable to make the interception as Newton targeted his speedster.
2018 Week 2 vs ATL (7 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
After hardly making an impression in his debut last week, Torrey Smith at least made a dent as the Panthers played mostly from behind. Smith's speed at the intermediate and deep levels of the field is still evident; his first target over the middle would have been an excellent start had Cam Newton not thrown it a few inches too high. Smith was targeted subsequently on a pair of passes: a deep ball which was expertly broken up at the catch point, and a pass over the middle that drew a pass interference penalty. Smith cashed in at last with a touchdown catch when the Panthers returned to the red zone, running a skinny post pattern and attacking a Newton bullet pass as he fell to the artificial turf.
2018 Week 1 vs DAL (2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
The wide receivers struggled to get separation against a stubborn and disciplined coverage unit of the Cowboys, with Torrey Smith perhaps the most affected - and least targeted - of the bunch. Smith showed good quickness off the snap to get inside leverage on the cornerback and catch a slant pass from Cam Newton, but otherwise was a non-factor.
