When given the chance to show off his stellar hands and feet, DeAndre Hopkins rarely disappoints. That was the case at the end of the first half against the Oakland Raiders when he and quarterback Brock Osweiler connected on a couple stellar passing plays.
An absolute DIME from @bosweiler17 to @Nukdabomb.

When the Houston Texans signed Osweiler in the offseason, these were no doubt the kind of connections that they expected to see a lot of during the season. That didn’t happen too often, but Osweiler and Hopkins sure found the right time to get it going.
Two plays later, Osweiler found Hopkins again, this time for a touchdown.
Definition of DIME.

This gave Houston a 20-7 lead over Oakland at halftime.
