A week after being held to one catch,
Floyd's longest reception went for 45 yards. He also had a 36-yard reception on the team's opening drive and all his receptions went for at least 10 yards.
Floyd, who was targeted nine times, had a chance for two touchdowns, but both times the play was broken up by the defense. The second time would have resulted in a 38-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but the pass from Stanton was slightly underthrown and it made for an easy pass defense.
He has surpassed 100 yards in two of three games. The Cardinals are on a bye Week 4 before returning to action Week 5 at Denver.
Floyd was targeted six times by backup quarterback Drew Stanton, which included the first play of the game that resulted in Floyd's only catch. Floyd was targeted three times in each half.

After finishing as the No. 24 Fantasy wideout in 2013, Floyd is poised to take a leap. His Week 1 matchup against the Chargers isn't daunting, as the 6-2, 220-pounder will go up against the smallest secondary in the league.
Consider him a high-end WR2.
Floyd has been dealing with a groin injury. It remains to be seen if he plays Saturday against Cincinnati.
