Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins’ big afternoon against the Tennessee Titans helped him make franchise history.

Hopkins caught eight passes for 94 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s 20-6 victory. In the process, he broke Andre Johnson’s franchise record for the most receiving yards through a player’s first three seasons.

The 23-year-old now has 2,882 yards receiving through his first 40 games with the Texans, eclipsing Johnson’s mark of 2,806.

Houston improved to 3-5 on the season with the win.
