Houston Texans. 11. player. 10. <p>In the past two games, DeAndre Hopkins has been tearing it up, totaling 20 catches for 317 yards and two scores. What also helped the Texans out in a major way yesterday was the turnover-limiting quarterbacking methods of Brian Hoyer. No sights of a pouting Ryan Mallet this week.</p> <p>Looking ahead, there’s some chance that the Texans will be 4-4 when they travel to Cincinnati in mid-November. Neither the Dolphins nor the Titans present enough of a threat to think the Texans can’t keep playing well and winning.</p> <p>Brent Grimes on Hopkins will be an interesting matchup to watch.</p>. AFC South. 2-4

Next: 10. San Diego Chargers
