The connection between Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is already difficult to stop. When the Indianapolis Colts make a mistake in the secondary and leave Hopkins open, a 35-yard touchdown is the result.

The Colts sent three rushers against Watson and after slipping away from a sack, he saw Hopkins sitting alone in the end zone. He immediately slung the football downfield and celebrated as Hopkins hauled it in for the go-ahead touchdown.

After cornerback Kenny Moore made an incredible interception on the previous drive, Indianapolis seemed to have a plan of attack to stop Watson and create mistakes. Now it’s back to the drawing board for the defense and finding a way to cover Hopkins.
