Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is one of the most difficult receivers to cover in the NFL. Unsurprisingly, it’s impossible to stop him when you leave him open, and the Denver Broncos just learned that obvious lesson.

Deshaun Watson stepped into a clear lane, and as soon as the Texans QB found the open space, he saw Hopkins streaking across the field with no one around him. He threw a quick bullet, and Hopkins pulled in before strolling in for one of the easiest touchdowns of his career.

Fortunately for Denver, it’s been the only big play made by the Texans on Sunday. As long as the Broncos don’t make it a habit, they should still cruise to an incredible victory over the Texans.
