Breakfast: DeAndre Hopkins is 1 of a dozen
January 15, 2018 10:00 AM


If you needed a "DeAndre Hopkins Greatness Reminder", we've got you covered.

The First-Team All-Pro wide receiver led the NFL in touchdown catches with 13 this season, and pulled down 96 total receptions for 1,378 yards.

But the fine folks in the Texans media relations department (@TexansPR on Twitter) also pointed out that he's in rare company in another category.

WR DeAndre Hopkins has recorded at least one reception in every game he has played in his NFL career (79 straight) since the Texans drafted him 27th overall in the 2013 Draft. Hopkins' streak of games with a reception to start his career is the longest active streak and the 12th-longest in the Super Bowl era.
