Only three teams remain undefeated in the NFL: New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, and the Kansas City Chiefs. Week four didn’t see very many Red Raiders on the field this week (compared to previous weeks), but the ones that did take the field made their mark known.

Jakeem Grant has been serving the Dolphins as both in his wide receiver position and in kick and punt returns. This weekend he had a catch for six yards and run with a loss of two yards. In the same game, he had five kick returns for 112 yards. Unfortunately, he left Sunday’s game against the Chargers late in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury. No word yet on the extent of his injury. Sam Equavoen was in the same game. He had a single tackle in the 30-10 loss to the Chargers.

KeKe Coutee is finally back after battling an injury. He caught one of three targets for the Texans in Sunday’s 16-10 loss to the Panthers. He carried the ball for 11 yards. Coutee played a season-high 40 snaps after moving up the depth chart to replace the injured Kenny Stills (hamstring) in the second quarter. Coutee of course had no trouble filling in for Coutee who is is quite familiar with the offense

The Oakland Raiders defeated the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night. Running back DeAndre Washington contributed to that win with six carries for 18 yards and two catches for 8 yards.

Patrick Mahomes was 24-42 for 315 yards and led a touchdown drive with 23 seconds left to lift Kansas City to a 34-30 victory over Detroit. The Chiefs are 4-0 and are one of three teams in the NFL that are still undefeated. While Mahomes did snap his streak of consecutive games with multiple touchdown passes at 14 (one shy of tying Peyton Manning for the longest streak in NFL history), he did become the fifth different player in NFL history with 300 yards passing in each of the first four games of a single season and the first since Peyton Manning and Drew Brees accomplished the feat in 2013. He is only the third quarterback in NFL history to accomplish the task. The other two are Kurt Warner and Tom Brady.

… and if you were wondering. Kliff Kingsbury and the Arizona Cardinals still have not won a game this season.
