Hayward recorded five tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's win over the Texans.

Hayward now leads the league in interceptions with six. Thrust into a starting role with Jason Verrett (knee) and Brandon Flowers (concussion) sidelined for multiple weeks, Hayward has excelled in the starting role, matching up against the opposition's best wide receivers most weeks. He'll have a tough task in front of him, however, as the Chargers take on Mike Evans and the Buccaneers next week.
