Bridgestone Performance Player Of The Week: Jordan Reed


Jordan Reed showed exactly how valuable he is to the Redskins' offense Sunday vs. the Buccaneers, catching 11 passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns, including the eventual game-clinching score, earning this week's Bridgestone Performace Player of the Week honors.

Jordan Reed's return from a concussion couldn't have come at a better time for the Washington Redskins.



]( missing Washington's Week 5 and 6 games against the Atlanta Falcons and the New York Jets -- both losses for the burgundy and gold -- Reed gained medical clearance late last week and became an immediate factor for the Redskins' offense on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Of course, it took a while for the Washington offense to get going -- they found themselves in a 24-0 hole by the second quarter -- but once they found the end zone once, via a touchdown run by quarterback Kirk Cousins, they would be hard to stop.

Reed played a huge part in that.

He had a game- and career-best 11 receptions and led the Redskins with 72 receiving yards and two touchdowns. His second touchdown of the day, a six-yard pass from Cousins, came with 28 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, and tied the game at 30. A Dustin Hopkins extra point later, and Washington had its first lead of the game, which it wouldn't relinquish en route to the franchise's biggest come-from-behind victory in its 83-year history.

Reed's 11-catch performance was the 22nd by a member of the Redskins since 1950, and the first since Pierre Garçon in Week 3 last season.

Reed became the first member of the Redskins to record multiple receiving touchdowns since Leonard Hankerson in Week 1 of the 2013 season. He was the first Redskins tight end to do so since Fred Davis on Dec. 13, 2009, at Oakland.
