Week 4 has wrapped up and another great round of performances happened this past Sunday. The Texans finally got a win, Jon Gruden finally got a win, and Patrick Mahomes showed why he’s is the league MVP right now. Here are the top 5 performances from Week 4.
The North Carolina product was unstoppable Sunday against the Bears. Trubisky tossed 6 touchdowns as the Bears dominated the Bucs from beginning to end. This is the performance that many Chicago fans were waiting on. Trubisky this season doesn’t need 6 touchdown games like this. Trubisky just needs to not turn the ball over and the Bears will make the playoffs this year, guaranteed, but Sunday was outstanding and long overdue.
A huge overtime win against the defending Super Bowl champs is what Marcus Mariota and head coach Mike Vrabel needed. This win, however, was more important for Mariota. Mariota has fought a hand injury and saw his spot taken by former first-round pick journeyman Blaine Gabbert. But Sunday, Mariota showed why Tennessee is his team and why he should be the starter moving forward. He completed 30 passes for 344 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 26-23 victory in overtime.
Corey Davis deserves a spot on this list after an amazing performance against the Eagles. Davis was looking like a bust as he was selected in the 2017 draft and wasn’t living up to the expectations he had coming out of Western Michigan. He struggled with dropped passes and inability to create separation. This game against the Eagles, however, was his breakout. Davis brought in 9 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown as he helped lead the Titans to an overtime win.
This win was well needed for Deshaun Watson as his job was most likely on the line after such a poor start to the season. This was supposed to be the year the Texans make the playoffs under the new hotshot quarterback. Could this game be the start? Watson threw for over 300 yards for the third time as the Texans won in overtime against the Colts. This game is a kickstart for a hopeful amazing season for Watson and the Texans.
For the fourth week, Mahomes is on this list because he has been absolutely unstoppable. Mahomes is the early season MVP as the Chiefs are 4-0 to start the season. Not only his big-play ability was shown but his clutch factor was on display. He led the Chiefs in a comeback win against their division rival Denver Broncos. Mahomes is so good this season he used his non-throwing hand to complete a clutch first down. This reminds me of last season as the Chiefs started off hot with Alex Smith but cooled off and finished rather disappointed. Will Mahomes suffer the same fate as the 2017 Kansas City Chiefs or will he write his own destiny
