Sammy Watkins has been routinely turning in dynamic and high degree of difficulty receptions in the passing game since training camp started. On Sunday he turned in another.
Watkins took off down the sideline on an outside release. CB Ron Brooks was stride for stride with him. Despite the tight coverage EJ Manuel put the ball up anyway. The pass drifted inside a little bit to where Brooks had positioned himself, but Watkins jumped as the ball was arriving and reached his hands up, out and over Brooks to pull the ball in and kept running. The fans in attendance went nuts.
“My confidence is huge in him,” said Manuel. “I’ve said it before, I was a Sammy fan before we even went and picked him up. When he got here and he showed what he could do to all of us the confidence is only going to go higher.
“When the ball is going to Sammy, he looks at it like it’s his ball, and nine times out of 10 he’s going to come down with it. That was just a prime example of it.”
