Hopkins became the third-youngest player in NFL history to reach 8,000 career receiving yards (27 years, 4 months, 22 days old). Only Larry Fitzgerald (27 years, 3 months, 20 days old) and Randy Moss (26 years, 9 months, 25 days old) accomplished the feat at a younger age than Hopkins.
2.) Hopkins, with his 109-yard receiving put up another 100-plus day. He now owns 28 career games with at least 100 receiving yards, which is the second-most through a player’s first seven NFL seasons in franchise history (Andre Johnson, 31)
3.) J.J. Watt had his third pass defensed of the season and owns the sixth-most career passes defended (54) by a defensive lineman in NFL history.
4.) Texans held running back Raiders Josh Jacobs to 66 yards on 15 carries. The Texans have not allowed a 100-yard rusher in 24 consecutive regular-season games, dating back to Week 1 of 2018. Houston joins New Orleans and Indianapolis as the only teams to not allow a 100-yard rusher from 2018-19.
