DeAndre Hopkins joined some elite company Sunday with yet another strong game for the Houston Texans. Hopkins had seven catches for 89 yards for the playoff-bound Texans in their win over Jacksonville to become the second player to surpass 3,500 yards receiving before his 24th birthday. The other player to do so? Randy Moss. Hopkins finishes the regular season with 104 catches for 1,432 yards and 11 touchdowns.
