1. Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (18 receptions, 243 yards, TD) Hopkins was able to catch six passes against the Ravens, but was unable to find paydirt to go along with his 60 receiving yards.

Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso (27 tackles, 1 sack, 2 INT, 1 FF, 1 FR)Alonso continues to make plays for the Bills' defense, as he intercepted Geno Smith this past week to go along with 8 tackles. Alonso also perfo...
