Nate Washington, a former Tennessee Titan had a very nice game in his first career game with the Houston Texans. The 32-year-old is entering into his 10th NFL season and is off to a tremendous start. Washington hauled in six receptions for 105 yards with his longest coming on a 32-yard catch and run.

Will Washington sustain this great success? No. It’s that simple. But he had a great week and finds himself on the list as the fourth best receiver of the week. Washington brings a lot of leadership to the Texans’ receiving corps which will be crucial for a Texans offense that has no identity.
