In fairness, it's not difficult to forget about Chandler. Buffalo's a tough team to generate pressure against. They have two good receivers (currently playing), a couple of underrated decoys in C.J. Spiller and Brad Smith, and arguably the NFL's best running back this season in Fred Jackson. Bills opponents have plenty to keep track of on game days.
Chandler is not a featured player in the Bills' offense - to a point. In seven games this season, he has just 15 receptions - a fairly high number for a Bills tight end compared to the mediocrities of seasons past, but it's still only good for fifth on the team. Where Chandler is featured is in the red zone.
In yesterday's 23-0 win over the Washington Redskins, Chandler came out of nowhere to catch two touchdown passes, upping his total to six on the year - a total that ties him with Pete Metzelaars and Jay Riemersma for the most scores by a tight end in a single season. Chandler has now scored in four of Buffalo's seven games, and 40 percent of his receptions have resulted in touchdowns this year.
