Houston Texans and former Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins continued to state his case as the best receiver in the NFL with an incredible go-ahead score for the Texans in a 29-22 win over the New York Jets on Saturday.

Former Clemson QB Deshaun Watson tossed to the well-covered Hopkins and Hopkins did the rest to come down with the score:




Hopkins did come up limping after the catch and was helped to the bench but reentered the game on the next series. Up to the catch, Hopkins hauled in 10 receptions in 11 targets for 170 yards and two scores.


Watson continued the longest streak of games with a TD pass in Texans history with the first Hopkins connection, a 19th game in a row. It was 17th TD between the Clemson pair that became 18 later in 21 games together.

Watson eclipsed the 5,000 career passing yard mark, becoming the first NFL QB to throw for 5,000-plus yards and 40 TDs and rush for at least 700 yards in a player's first 21 games. He finished the night 22-of-28 passing for 294 yards with the two scores.
