DeAndre Hopkins scored the Texans' first touchdown of the 2014 season with the longest catch of his career. The second-year receiver hauled in a 76-yard catch to give the Texans a 7-6 lead over Washington with 4:15 remaining in the second quarter.
"(Ryan) Fitzpatrick, he took time in the pocket; he didn't look too worried out there," Hopkins said after the game. "He's a veteran quarterback, he knew we would have a good play downfield. He stood in the pocket and made a great throw."
Fitzpatrick's touchdown pass, the third longest of his 10-year career, ended a four-play, 89-yard drive. The Texans' starting quarterback was 6 of 11 for 114 yards, one touchdown, and a passer rating of 121.0 following the score.
