Week 4 marks the end of the first quarter of the NFL season. This year, the league’s fourth week gave fans plenty to talk (and tweet) about.
Whose chirping was amongst the best of the best from this week’s group of games?
Deshaun Watson is no ordinary rookie
Despite starting in just his third NFL game, Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson lit up the Tennessee Titans on Sunday for a total of five touchdowns. The Texans might have finally found their answer under center.

How Deshaun Watson didn’t start Week 1 is one of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries.

Rookie kicker keeps the Chiefs unbeaten
The Kansas City Chiefs kept their unblemished record in tact after defeating the Washington Redskins 29-20 on Monday night. Mostly, thanks to their rookie kicker, Harrison Butker, who knocked in a go-ahead field goal with four seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
