Former Clemson standout Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins had an impressive showing against the Titans in a 34-6 win.

Hopkins finished the game with seven catches on 11 targets for 117 yards and a 15-yard touchdown reception. The scoring play was his 11th of the year which is a franchise touchdown record for a wide receiver.

He also went over 100 catches on the season which he and Andre Johnson are the only two receivers to accomplish that for the Texans. For the season, Hopkins has 104 catches for 1,432 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Hopkins is the third receiver in NFL history alongside Issac Bruce and Randy Moss to have 1400 yards and 11 touchdowns in a single season at the young age of 23 or younger.

Hopkins addressed the media after the game in a cool Jedi-master type headdress. It is actually a Versace scarf given to him by his mother as a Christmas present.
