Only his 2014 numbers of 75.8 percent are higher in a comparable span.

After three consecutive seasons with sub-60 percent catch percentages, Hopkins is back at a high level. Among receivers with a minimum of 40 passes thrown their way, Hopkins’ percentage is the fifth-highest in the NFL.

“I just think that him and [quarterback] Deshaun (Watson) having more time to work together,” said Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan. “Any time a quarterback and a receiver get extended amount of time together, it’s their second year in beyond the spring practices and all of that, they’re going to have a comfort level that keeps on building.]]>

When looking at their offense, two players stand out in quarterback Deshaun Watson and receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The two without a question have been the source of the Texans offensive success as of the last two years and they’ve especially been vital keys in propelling the Texans to their current three-game win streak]]>

<![CDATA[Tre'Davious White on matchup with DeAndre Hopkins: 'I feel like I'm better']]>
On Sunday, the Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans boasted an exciting matchup between cornerback Tre’Davious White and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

The Bills ultimately lost in Week 6 to Houston, 20-13, but from a head-to-head standpoint, White believes he got the better of Hopkins.

“I feel like I won the battle.” White said. “I mean, what he have, two passes for like 30-something yards on me?”

In total, Hopkins caught five passes for 63 yards and a touchdown against Buffalo’s defense. When he was matched up against White, the All-Pro pass catcher caught only two passes for 23 yards. However, Hopkins’ 13-yard touchdown reception came against White in man-coverage]]>

He also attempted a pass that fell incomplete.

Hopkins paced the Texans in both receptions and receiving yardage, and he also was responsible for the team's only offensive touchdown. The Pro Bowler faced a tough matchup against Tre'Davious White, which likely limited his overall production, as did the fact that quarterback Deshaun Watson was playing with both rib and lung injuries. However, Hopkins remains an elite play in any format heading into a tough Week 7 matchup against the Jaguars.

<![CDATA[Deshaun Watson underwhelming in Texans' 20-13 win over Bills]]> Deshaun Watson looked good in the first quarter, and that was about it for the rest of the day though. Watson took a beating getting sacked by the stout Buffalo Bills defensive line with a total of seven sacks.

Watson finished the day completing 15-of-25 attempts for a very low 177 passing yards. Watson did connect with Texans start wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins for Watson’s lone touchdown on the day, and the receiver had five catches for 63 yards.

With the good though comes the bad, Watson threw for two interceptions and lost one fumble. Watson looked very uncomfortable in the pocket as the Bills pressured the Texans weak offensive line. Defensive lineman Kyle Williams had two sacks along with Lorenzo Alexander’s 1.5 and Jerry Hughes’ 1.5. Shaq Lawson had a sack, and rookie Kyle Murphy and safety Micah Hyde each had a half-sack]]>

<![CDATA[4 'musts' for Texans to beat Bills]]>
Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Buffalo has cornerback Tre’Davious White, safety Micah Hyde, and safety Matt Milano in their secondary, and the unit has limited opposing receivers to just 9.9 yards per reception, the lowest such average in the NFL. However, the Texans passing game doesn’t need to be unnecessarily threatened by those numbers. Buffalo has not faced an All-Pro wideout with the caliber of DeAndre Hopkins, who has built his reputation and skills off of playing with lesser quarterbacks than Deshaun Watson. There is a reason Hopkins leads the NFL with 594 receiving yards. Along with teammates Will Fuller and Keke Coutee, the Texans passing game ought to be able to move the ball on Buffalo]]>

<![CDATA[Good to go Week 6]]> Hopkins (foot) does not carry a Week 6 injury designation after practicing in a limited fashion all week.

The same applies to Keke Coutee (hamstring) and Will Fuller (hamstring), meaning that the Texans will have their top three pass catchers available Sunday against the Bills. Deshaun Watson (chest) is listed as questionable for the contest, but we'd be surprised if he didn't play. Hopkins has been a steady high-volume option through Houston's first five games en route to accumulating 39 catches on 57 targets for a league-high 594 yards and two TDs.

<![CDATA[Bills vs. Texans: 3 matchups to watch for in Week 6]]> DeAndre Hopkins — USA Today photo

In Week 6, the Buffalo Bills will travel to NRG Stadium to take on the Houston Texans. Both teams won by the narrowest of margins in Week 5. The Bills kicked a field goal in the waning seconds to defeat the Tennessee Titans 13-12, while Houston edged the Dallas Cowboys in overtime by a final score of 19-16.

Another theme that Buffalo and the Texans share entering Week 6 is their identical records as they both sit at 2-3 towards the bottom of their respective divisions. Each team will look to reach the .500 mark for the first time this season and improve their odds of making the playoffs]]>

<![CDATA[Bills receivers lag behind in yardage distribution]]>
The Bills are last in the league in total passing yards, gaining a meager 772 yards through the air, as a team. The NFL leader and an opponent this upcoming week, DeAndre Hopkins, has 594. 

This stat is sobering to a sputtering offense, as it ranks behind teams who have already worked through their bye week. After subtracting yards lost from sacks, the Bills average a net of 121.8 passing yards per game.

While the total passing yards are still a work in progress, the yards gained by positions groups is not as imbalanced as other teams in the league. The distribution reveals Buffalo does not rely on one particular unit for moving the ball forward via the air arsenal. Andy Stagg of Pyromaniac.com broke down the Bills passing yardage distribution for the first five games of the year thus far.]]>
