DW4 to Nuk Hopkins is a lethal combination.

The Houston Texans (7-4) won 20-17 against the Indianapolis Colts (6-5) on Thursday Night Football behind the strong quarterback play of Deshaun Watson and elite playmaking ability of DeAndre Hopkins.

Watson led his team to victory with 19-for-30 passing for 298 yards and two touchdowns and only one interception. Both touchdowns were to Hopkins as he had six total receptions for 94 yards.

In a postgame interview with ESPN's Scott Van Pelt, Hopkins was asked about the locker room talk with teammates on Clemson and other schools like LSU and Ohio State.

"What's understood doesn't need to be explained," he said. "Everybody knows we are the best college football team the past four or five years, especially since Deshaun (Watson) been there. We don't want to brag too much. Those guys know they will have to see us in the playoffs."

Hopkins gave the football from his touchdown to his mother in the stands:
