It was not a great day for former Eagles receivers this past Sunday. In recent weeks we have seen solid production from these players, but this past week those numbers plummeted. Let’s take a look at these not-so-great performances this week from former Eagles.
The Giants offense as a whole did not play well in a losing effort to the Browns, folding 20-6 on Sunday Night Football. Golden Tate was not featured much in the passing game as the Browns defense held the Giants offense in check the entire 60 minutes. Tate was only targeted three times on Sunday, ending the game with two receptions for 13 yards
Hollins had a very similar week to Golden Tate this week with their levels of production. He was also only targeted three times and recorded just two receptions for 18 yards. The Dolphins were still able to beat the New England Patriots 22-12.
The Colts were able beat the Houston Texans this week 27-20 even without Burton being a factor in the game. He was practically invisible, targeted just twice the entire game. He recorded one catch for eight yards, which put him at the bottom of the stat pile for Colts receivers in Week 15.
