Cards are doing a lot of things right this season.
They’re doing a great job of scoring touchdowns and scoring on fourth downs, and they’re doing it with a little help from Kenesha Hat, the hat trick broadhead from Kansas City.
The trick is a simple but effective play that has been going for years in this league, and now, with more teams putting a lot more emphasis on offense in the NFL, it’s finally getting some attention.
Here are the top four Kenosas hat trick wideouts to watch in Week 3.
Brandon Marshall, Detroit Lions wide receiver, Chicago Bears Bears: The Bears were able to go into this game with a dominant offense and score first in the first half, with Marshall and receiver Alshon Jeffery scoring touchdowns of 21 and 23 yards.
Marshall was on the field for 19 of the Bears’ points in the game, and he got a big first-half carry with just under seven minutes to go in the third quarter.
Bears coach Marc Trestman said he had the team lined up for Marshall, who is a very versatile wideout, in the slot, which makes sense considering how much of a wide receiver he is.
The Bears’ offensive line had struggled to protect Marshall, and the wideout made a nice one-handed grab that was just short of crossing the goal line.
Marshall said the hat was a huge help.
“It was a big boost to me coming in and playing with the big, athletic receivers, so it was a blessing,” Marshall said.
“I love hats.
They are so fun.
It’s always fun when you have a hat on.
It really helps the offense.
It gives them an advantage.”
Marshall, 26, caught 10 passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns.
Mike Wallace, New Orleans Saints defensive end, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Saints defense has been a disaster all season, and Wallace was a major part of that.
He was the only defensive player to start in all 16 games, and when the Saints were in their bye week, Wallace started every game.
Wallace was one of three players who had three sacks in the Saints’ 31-10 win over the Jets in Week 1.
Wallace, a former undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech, had six tackles and four tackles for loss.
Wallace is one of only four players in the league to have two sacks this season, joining Jason Pierre-Paul and Derek Wolfe.
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins defensive end and receiver, New York Giants: Reed had five tackles, two sacks, two quarterback hurries and a pass defensed in the Giants’ 20-10 victory over the Browns in Week 2.
Reed is one in a long line of players to get big sacks in this game, with DeMarcus Ware (two), Eric Weddle (two) and Brandon Jacobs (one) having at least one.
Reed had three quarterback hurrys and a sack, and both of those came against the Jets, who were led by quarterback Josh McCown.
Reed was a dominant force in the box and played with a lot off the edge, making plays on the edge and on the ball.
Reed has been dominant in the nickel, but the Giants have also relied on him as a pass rusher.
Reed should be one of the top candidates for Defensive Player of the Week.
Corey Davis, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver and tight end, Green Bay Packers: Davis was on fire against the Broncos, catching five passes for 113 yards and a touchdown.
Davis is one player to watch this season in this offense.
Davis was the most prolific receiver in the Cardinals’ offense in 2015, catching 60 passes for 834 yards and six touchdowns.
He had eight catches for 126 yards and one touchdown against the Vikings in Week 6, but it was against the Packers that Davis became the biggest star of the game.
Davis has been playing in a much bigger role in this team’s offense this season than he was in 2015.
Davis’ emergence in that game will be key for the Packers this season and for Davis’ place in the Pro Bowl.
Devin Funchess, New England Patriots tight end and wide receiver to start, Denver Broncos: The Patriots have been a major reason for this year’s resurgence in the AFC East, but there are more games to come for FuncheSS.
He caught five passes and scored a touchdown for the Patriots in the victory over Buffalo.
FuncheS has been one of several players to play big roles this season for the Broncos.
He has seven receptions for 119 yards and five touchdowns, and his big plays helped the Broncos move past Buffalo into a tie with New England for the final playoff spot in the division.
FunCheSS had a career high four catches for 69 yards and three touchdowns against the Colts in Week 4.
