DeAndre Hopkins has career day

DeAndre Hopkins set a career-high in touchdowns and receiving yards in the Texans 45-21 win over the Tennessee Titans.

"I thank my offensive line and Fitz (Ryan Fitzpatrick) for putting the ball where it needed to be, my offensive line for doing their blocking," Hopkins said. "We came out here with a great gameplan against these guys and did everything we wanted to do."

The second-year receiver scored two touchdowns and caught nine passes for 238 yards Sunday. With his performance, Hopkins broke his previous game-high of 117 receiving yards, also against Tennesssee (9/15/13), in just three quarters.

"He is one of the top receivers in the league," head coach Bill O'Brien said after the game. "He is a really good player; he is a dynamic player. He gets better and better every time we go out there."

Hopkins scored his first touchdown with 0:38 left in the second quarter on a 58-yard pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick on a one-play drive. He added his second score of the day when he grabbed 34-yard catch from Fitzpatrick with 4:40 left in the third quarter.

Hopkins surpassed his 2013 totals in receptions, yards, and touchdowns with Sunday's Week 13 matchup against the Titans.
