It took just nine games for DeAndre Hopkins to have a signature moment as an Arizona Cardinal.

And that catch heard 'round the NFL also gave Hopkins his initial award as a Card, after the wide receiver was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week Wednesday morning.

Hopkins finished the game against the Bills with seven catches for 127 yards and one memorable 43-yard Hail Murray touchdown with two seconds left, notching the fourth player of the week award for the Cardinals this season.

Quarterback Kyler Murray was named OPOW in Weeks 5 and 7, and safety Budda Baker won NFC Defensive Player of the Week in Week 6.

Hopkins is second in the NFL with 67 catches and 861 yards, although the leader in both categories – Buffalo's Stefon Diggs – has played one more game. It is his second Offensive Player of the Week award in his career, winning it with the Texans in 2015.

He is the fourth Cardinals wide receiver to win the award, joining Roy Green, Larry Fitzgerald and J.J. Nelson.

Hopkins already has five 100-yard games in his nine games with the Cardinals.
