Week four of the NFL season has come to a close and I think we can all agree that it's good to have the normal refs back. Now we can all get back to blaming them instead of the replacement refs. RIGHT?! Anywho, the Texans, Cardinals and Falcons all remained undefeated while the Saints dropped to 0-4. Tony Romo embarrassed himself on Monday Night Football and the Lions are looking very little like the playoff team of a year ago.

As with last year, no offensive lineman are mentioned because it's just too hard to really tell how they performed. The Hokies in the NFL are below in alphabetical order:

James Anderson, LB Carolina Panthers- Anderson tallied four total tackles, just one as a solo as the Panthers lost to the Falcons on a late field goal.

Kam Chancellor, SS Seattle Seahawks- Chancellor had four total tackles, all as solo efforts, in Seattle's loss to the Rams.

Shayne Graham, K Houston Texans- Graham hit his only field goal attempt of the day with a 33-yarder and added five extra points as the Texans stayed undefeated by beating the Titans.
1/1 FG (33), 5/5 XP

Cody Grimm, FS Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Grimm did not accumulate any stats.

Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs- Flowers totaled three tackles, all three solo, two passes defending and pulled in an interception, but the Chiefs fell to the Chargers.
3 TAK, 3 SOLO, 2 PD, 1 INT

DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins- Hall racked up five total tackles (all solo), two passes defended and intercepted a Josh Freeman pass. The Redskins scored a touchdown after the turnover.
5 TAK, 5 SOLO, 2 PD, INT

Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants- Hosley was inactive this week.

Jeff King, TE Arizona Cardinals- King had two catches for 22 yards, with a 20-yarder as the long of the day. WOOOO!
2 REC, 22 YDS

Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins- Morgan pulled in four catches for 62 yards, with a long of 17 yards, two for 16 yards and one for 13 yards.
4 REC, 62 YDS

Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers- Eddie caught three passes for 16 yards, including a four yard pass for a touchdown to put the Chargers on the board early.
3 REC, 16 YDS, 1 TD

Darryl Tapp, DE Philadelphia Eagles- Tapp did not accumulate any stats.

Tyrod Taylor, QB Baltimore Ravens- Tyrod did not accumulate any stats.

Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles- Vick was 19 of 30 for 241 yards with one touchdown in the Eagles' win over the Giants on Sunday night. Vick also added 49 yards on the ground on six carries, including an 18 yard carry. Vick did not have any turnovers this week. Vick hit DeSean Jackson with a 19-yard pass to open the scoring for the Eagles. Vick was three for three for 34 yards through the air and added a 13-yard scramble.
19/30, 241 YDS, TD; 6 RUSH, 49 YARDS

Ryan Williams, RB Arizona Cardinals- After a big game last week, Williams only totaled 26 yards on 13 carries. The Cards edged the Dolphins in OT to stay undefeated.
13 RUSH, 26 YDS

David Wilson, RB New York Giants- Wilson may not be much of a factor in the rushing game, but he has found a role in the return game. Wilson returned six kicks for 217 yards. Wilson had returns of 36, 48, 45, 53, 17 and 37 yards.
6 RET, 217 RET YDS

Jason Worilds LB Pittsburgh Steelers- Pittsburgh had a bye week.

Inactive players: CB Jayron Hosley, WR Jarrett Boykin, Green Bay Packers; G Jaymes Brooks, Green Bay Packers (PUP list); CB Roc Carmichael, Houston Texans; RB Darren Evans, Tennessee Titans (practice squad); WR DAnny Coale, Dallas Cowboys (practice squad)

Player of the week: I'm going with Wilson this week. Did he score any touchdowns? No, but he may have earned himself some more playing time now that the Giants know he is a good open-field threat.
