Houston Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins finished Week 4 with nine receptions for 157 yards. Hopkins has complied 258 receiving yards and a touchdown over the last two games and ranks seventh in the NFL in touchdowns (3) and 10th in receptions (22). He was targeted 22 times, but the Texans’ struggles at quarterback limited them as they fell to the Atlanta Falcons, 48-21.
Kicker Chandler Catanzaro was arguably the Week 4 MVP for the Arizona Cardinals. On a day where the Cardinals faced red zone difficulties against a stout St. Louis Rams defense, Catanzaro nailed all five of his field goals on the day. Despite the solid performance from the 2013 Clemson senior, the Cardinals fell 24-22 against the Rams.
