He’s been on the roster for two months now and Justin Hunter has made just seven receptions. Seven catches might not seem like much until you realize that four of them have gone for touchdowns.
Fifty-seven percent of Hunter’s catches have resulted in touchdowns making the tall, angular receiver as the team leader in receiving touchdowns this season.
Tyrod Taylor’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Hunter proved to be the game-winning points, but Hunter had to climb the ladder to make the catch.
“I guess he knows the background,” said Hunter of his fellow Virginia native. “I’ve got a 40-inch vertical and it came in handy. He trusted me on that play.”
One of the main reasons Hunter has not made much happen between the 20s is because he’s mainly on the field when the team reaches the red zone. As long as he keeps scoring that role is fine with Hunter.
“I’m not going to complain about it,” he said. “They keep coming like that, I’ll take them however they come. As long as we get in the red zone, it’s my zone.”
