Eifert caught three passes (on seven targets) for 26 yards in Monday night's loss to the Texans. Eifert followed his outstanding three-touchdown Week 9 outing with a largely disappointing display Monday night, which was representative of the Bengals' offense overall. In fact, Eifert's mere 26 yards marked his lowest total this season besides his Week 3 goose-egg, and he also dropped a costly pass late in Monday's game. The tight end will look to rebound this Sunday in a difficult matchup against the Cardinals.
Eifert caught four of his eight targets for 39 yards in Sunday's win over the Steelers. Eifert has been a little bit inconsistent this season, as all six of his touchdowns have come in four games. Even so, the third-year tight end has significantly outperformed expectations thus far and plays a pivotal role on a stacked Bengals offense. He caught just half of his targets in this clunker, but Eifert should be just fine moving forward considering how often quarterback Andy Dalton looks his way.
Eifert caught four passes for 30 yards in Sunday's win over the Bills, including one touchdown catch. Eifert wasn't nearly as busy (four targets) as he was the previous week, in part because Marvin Jones was so productive. He's been able to stay healthy all season so far, and now gets the bye week to rest.
Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert had eight catches on 12 targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Seahawks. Eifert scored three touchdowns in the first two games of the season and then had three catches for 69 yards in the next two games combined -- including a donut in Week 3 against the Ravens. He bounced back in a big way Sunday, and he is now tied with James Jones and Larry Fitzgerald for the NFL lead in receiving touchdowns. Up next is a tough Week 6 matchup at Buffalo before the Bengals' bye.
Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert caught three of his four targets for 69 yards in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. The third-year pro bounced back to finish third on the team in receiving after being held without a catch in Week 3, putting up his second-highest receiving total of the season. Eifert has struggled to repeat his 104-yard, two-touchdown game from Week 1, but he remains one of the better red zone threats among tight ends. The Bengals will face a Seahawks defense in Week 3 that has been relatively vulnerable against tight ends this season.
