Offensive Player of the Week: Andrew Luck 29-41 393 yards 4 TDs 1 INT
At this point of the season Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers are the clear cut standard at the quarterback position. Luck threw for more yards than last week and matched his four Touchdown performance. His top two receivers, Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton, both had over 100 receiving yards as Luck spread the ball around to nine different receivers, and each of his touchdowns went to a different receiver. This means Luck is systematically reading the defense and distributing the ball effectively. After a quarter of the season has been played, Andrew Luck has been the best offensive player in the league.
Honorable mention: Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, Eli Manning, Demarco Murray, Steve Smith, Frank Gore, Matt Forte
Defensive Player of the Week: J.J. Watt 5 tackles, 1 Pass Deflection, 1 INT
J.J. Watt is the best defensive player in the NFL and he looked the part in week four. He was constantly knifing his way into the Buffalo backfield as he registered nine quarterback hits even though he didn’t record a sack. He was also a force against the run keeping the Bills talented rushing attack under 100 yards. Watt’s pick six came after a Bills interception had their offense in the red zone before Watt intercepted a pass and raced 80 yards for a touchdown.
Honorable mention: CJ Mosley, Antoine Bethea, Perrish Cox, Justin Durant, Kenny Vaccaro, Lavonte David
Team win of the Week: Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs simply dominated the New England Patriots in all facets of the game. Besides the 27 point margin the Chiefs out gained New England 443-290, and held Tom Brady to just 159 passing yards and forced 3 turnovers. The Chiefs didn’t surprise people like Tampa, they don’t have a solid winning formula like Dallas, and they beat arguably the best franchise over the last decade. The Chiefs had two running backs over 100 yards and receiver Dwayne Bowe had 81 yards in the first half.
Honorable mention: Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
