DeAndre Hopkins breaks Texans receiving record

DeAndre Hopkins is making history.

Hopkins has now passed Andre Johnson (2,806) for the most receiving yards in a player's first three seasons in team history. Hopkins now has 2,882 yards through just 40 games.

In Sunday's game against Tennessee, Hopkins scored on a 21-yard touchdown catch following a five-play, 54-yard drive.

"It was man-to-man coverage, press-man coverage," Hopkins said. "Brian Hoyer saw that and we saw that in practice that they go man-to-man. He gave me a chance to make a play and that's what I did."

Heading into the game, he needed just 19 yards to pass Johnson in the record books.

Hopkins finished the game with team-high eight catches for 94 yards receiving and the touchdown in the Texans 20-6 win over Tennessee.
