The quarter mark of the NFL season is officially in the books. Who would have imagined that the Bills would be alone atop the AFC East while the Rams would be leading the NFC West? Thanks to a veteran kicker's seven field goals and a rookie quarterback's five scores, the Rams and Texans emerged victorious in Week 4. For those performances, those players -- among others -- were recognized by the NFL as the Players of the Week.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after setting an NFL record for most total touchdowns by a rookie with five. Watson -- who led the Clemson Tigers to the national championship in January -- was in rhythm with his receivers as he connected for four scores, as well as a 1-yard run to cap off a 57-14 win over the Tennessee Titans.
For the second straight week, Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. Hauschka was a perfect 3-for-3 in field goals, including a tie-breaking 56-yarder which propelled Buffalo over Atlanta.
