Are the #Texans the team to beat in the AFC South? DeAndre Hopkins thinks so

DeAndre Hopkins has eclipsed 2000 plus yards already in his early NFL career.

DeAndre Hopkins says the AFC South will come through the Texans

The AFC South has went through either the Indianapolis Colts or the Houston Texans in the past couple years, but lately the Titans and the Jaguars are stacking up.  The Texans stacked up on the offensive side of the ball, and DeAndre Hopkins thinks the AFC South will run through them.

The team locked Brock Osweiler into a hefty deal after just seven starts with the Broncos last year. Then, the Texans spent their first and third-round picks on explosive, field-stretching wide receivers (Will Fuller and Braxton Miller) to pair with DeAndre Hopkins.

Hopkins, who had an incredible 111 catches for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns despite minimal quarterback play, is enthused with his new situation.

“I feel like we’ve earned that title to be the team to beat in the AFC South,” Hopkins said, via the Houston Chronicle. “When I got here, it was the Colts. We finally [got] over that hump. Hopefully, we can continue to be the team to beat.”
