Will Fuller V breaks loose for 2 TD catches

Will Fuller, V gets open and gets in the end zone. Often.

The second-year receiver caught his sixth and seventh touchdowns of 2017 in the first half of the Texans 41-38 loss to Seattle. He finished the day with five receptions for 125 yards, and also drew a pass interference penalty that netted the Texans 22 yards, and a Lamar Miller touchdown later on that drive.

"He's a beast," receiver DeAndre Hopkins said of Fuller. "How many catches of his are touchdowns? Almost every one, it seems like. That helps me out, when guys want to cheat to my side, you have to watch Will."

Fuller now has 13 catches on the season, which means 54 percent of his receptions wind up in the end zone. He's also averaging 21.5 yards per catch in 2017. And he's only played in four games.

"He's a great route-runner," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's very smart. And he's very fast. He's really improved his hands. Him and Deshaun, and Deshaun and Hop, they just have a great connection. I just feel sick that we weren't able to win."

Fuller echoed his coaches sentiments, and was disappointed in the outcome.

"We gotta win," Fuller said. "That's the only thing I'm thinking about. I don't care how I did. I don't care how 'Hop did. We gotta go out there and find a way to win. We had a chance to close it out but we didn't."

Fuller and the Texans will host the Colts next Sunday at NRG Stadium.

Texans fans showed up to support their team at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
