Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

DeAndre Hopkins entered Sunday's game against the New York Jets with 2.939 career receiving yards. With a 61-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter (the second-longest reception in his career), he passed 3,000 career receiving yards. Hopkins had also collected his 200th career reception early in the game as well.

Hopkins became the third-youngest player to reach 3,000 career receiving yards and 200 career reception, behind only Larry Fitzgerald and David Boston.

Hopkins also became the fastest player in Texans franchise history to reach 200 receptions, doing so in his 42nd game. The previous mark was held by Andre Johnson at 43 games. Hopkins (42 games) also passed Johnson for fastest to reach 3,00 yards; Johnson did in 48 games.

Hopkins was also the first player in Texans history to reach 1,000 receiving yards in the first ten games of season. He has also caught a pass in 42 straight games.

Hopkins, as of this post, has 5 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns against the Jets.
