The Houston Texans are coming off their first loss of the season and the Atlanta Falcons have only one win this season, but there is a lot to look forward to in this Week 5 game.

When folks think of the Atlanta Falcons and the Houston Texans, the first players who are thought of are two of the very best wide receivers in the entire NFL in DeAndre Hopkins of the Texans and Julio Jones of the Falcons.

There is no doubt about it they are the stars of their offenses, and for the two teams they will go as far as those two players can take them this season when games are on the line.

More from Houston Texans News

Jones  has 23 receptions for 317 yards and four touchdowns in 2019, averaging 13.8 yards per reception. Hopkins is coming in at 24 receptions for 259 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 10.8 yards per reception.

Those two players are always must-watch every week and we know that, so for this article they won’t have a larger profile, and neither will their quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Deshaun Watson because we already know what those two bring to the table as well.

Ryan has passed for 1,325 yards with eight touchdowns and six interceptions, while also having a 70.5 completion percentage in ’19. For the Texans, Watson has passed for 938 yards this season with six touchdowns and one interception, while this completion percentage is 65.1 through the first four games.

As this game continues to get closer, the Texans and Falcons have more than just those four players on their roster, and expect some players to stand out this week who might have not stood out thus far in ’19 for either team.

Next are 3 players to watch for the Week 5 game that will be played on Sunday at noon CT in Houston.
