He had caught at least one pass in every NFL game of his three-year career, but on Sunday Robert Woods for the first time as a pro went without a catch.
Woods came into the game with a 37-game streak with at least one reception. In Sunday’s win he was targeted just once early in the game, but did not come up with the catch. The receiver was again a factor in the run game blocking downfield, but his streak with at least one catch came to an end.
“Yeah just a blocking day,” said Woods when asked about his streak. “One of those ones where the defense is giving us the ground game and we’ve just got to keep going to it. We had two running backs over 100 yards and sometimes you have to take what the defense gives you.”
Tyrod Taylor only attempted 12 passes for the entire game with eight going to Sammy Watkins. Woods still made his presence felt with a key block on the McCoy 48-yard touchdown run.
“We knew that (Dolphins safety) Reshad Jones was very active in run support, trying to get him taken out of (the play),” said Woods. “With him playing down in the box, it’s our job to dig out the safeties.”
Woods 37-game streak was the eighth longest in team history.
