After leaving Houston Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins wide open for a 35-yard touchdown in the second quarter, the Indianapolis Colts came out of halftime determined to shut him down. Unfortunately, that left Will Fuller with perfect opportunities to burn them deep.

On first-and-20 to open the third quarter, quarterback Deshaun Watson saw Fuller get open deep and dropped a dime into Fuller’s hands down the sideline for a 44-yard play to flip the field.

Indianapolis didn’t learn its lesson in how to cover Fuller. He moved to the opposite side of the field and cut across deep downfield before hauling in a gorgeous 51-yard catch.

Keep in mind, Fuller hasn’t played since Week 7 due to a hamstring injury and it is still clearly impacting him. The 25-year-old’s speed is just too much for the Colts to handle and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he burns them deep again.
