HOUSTON (AP) — DeAndre Hopkins had the best season of his career Nick Martin Jersey , carrying Houston’s receivers in a year the group was decimated by injuries.Now the self-described best receiver in the NFL will need another big performance for the Texans to get a win over the Colts in the wild-card game on Saturday.“I feel like I’m a leader of this team, not just this offense,” Hopkins said. “I was named captain, so for me to go out and play my best game is important, not just for me but for this team.”Hopkins finished the regular season with a career-high 1,572 yards receiving, which ranked second in the NFL, and his 115 receptions tied a franchise record set by Andre Johnson in 2008. His 11 touchdown receptions were fifth in the league and tied for the second most in his career after he grabbed a franchise-record 13 last season.His performance comes in a season when the Texans lost starting receiver Will Fuller to a torn knee ligament in October, and Demaryius Thomas to an Achilles tendon injury two weeks ago. Houston got solid production from Keke Coutee midway through the season, but the rookie has missed the last five games with a hamstring injury, leaving Hopkins to carry an even bigger load than usual.Coach Bill O’Brien is wowed by the sixth-year player nearly every day, and when asked about him this week he noted Hopkins had just made a nifty one-handed grab in practice a few minutes earlier.“He just has a great skill set, really smart player, excellent competitor, can really make the contested catch, he can line up inside, he can line up outside, he can do a lot of different things Tyler Ervin Jersey , and he’s come up real big for us,” O’Brien said. “He has 115 catches and they’ve all been important catches. He’s a leading third-down target. … He always impresses me.”He’s so good and consistent that second-year quarterback Deshaun Watson admitted he’s tempted to throw it to him on every play.“For sure,” Watson said. “Usually he’s going to make a play happen regardless if you think he’s open. If he’s not open, he’s open.”Hopkins has a knack for making catches at key moments, with 81 of his 115 receptions resulting in a first down or a touchdown. And an even more impressive statistic, according to Pro Football Focus, is that he does not have a single drop this season on catchable targets.After that statistic was released, a meme featured a picture of Hopkins with a bottle of glue in one of his hands bearing a label that read: ‘Hopkins’ Catch-All Multi-Purpose WR, extra strong formula, no drop.’ Hopkins was amused by the meme and his tweet of it received more than 68,000 likes.But he said he’s more concerned about being consistent than the fact he hasn’t dropped a ball all season.“That’s my goal every day. Being consistent, not just on the football field but in life,” he said. “Playing football is something I love doing, and being named as one of the best is something that I work hard for because I think everybody wants to be the best at their position. Otherwise why would you play your position? So, to get that recognition from whoever made that, that was pretty cool … I know that if I don’t drop a ball, it’s going to lead to something good.”Watson didn’t have to play with Hopkins long to realize he wasn’t like most receivers and that his skills could help make up for some of the young quarterback’s mistakes.“I found that out last year when I was throwing to him. It’s ridiculous,” Watson said. “My first start in Cincinnati last year Benardrick McKinney Jersey , some balls there I kind of threw high. Some stop routes. I’d come over and be like: ‘Hey, it’s my bad. I’m going to get it down,’ and he was just like: ‘No, I want it just like that. I want it high. I want it outside. I want it low,’ and he just found a way to get it.”His production this season is even more impressive considering he’s been hampered by minor injuries, but still started every game. While those injuries never kept him out on game day, they limited his practice time, which he acknowledges was difficult.“It’s been challenging not being able to practice with my guys like I want to, being out there, just having fun with the fellas,” he said. “That’s why I look forward to coming to work every day, just being around my teammates, not just going out there and making plays on Sunday.“It’s been challenging from that aspect, but it’s been good,” he continued. “My play has correlated to us winning games, so I feel like me personally, this is my best season. We won the division. Best record I’ve had since I’ve been here yet.”And now Hopkins and the Texans will try to build on that success as they chase their first championship. Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase couldn't hide his irritation with the team's defense after a 42-23 loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday night."We've got to get better fast," he said.The Dolphins allowed a season high in points on a night Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson matched a career best with five touchdown passes Bradley Roby Jersey , including ones of 73 and 49 yards.When asked if second-year defensive coordinator Matt Burke's job was at stake, Gase said he hadn't considered making a major change to his defensive staff. But added that the coaches need to evaluate why the defense is giving up what he called a "massive amount of yardage.""They try to get everything patched up as fast as possible," Gase said of the staff. "These guys were hired because I liked them when we were coming into the situation we were in. I trusted Matt to get this thing going in the right direction."There were a lot of good things that had happened over the last two years," he continued. "We've just got to figure out where are out issues. Is it players? Is it schemes? We have to evaluate that, and we can't be afraid to change if we have to."Miami's rush defense, which entered the week ranked 29th in the NFL by allowing 136.7 yards a game, allowed Houston another 188 rushing yards on 5.4 yards per carry. Former Dolphins running back Lamar Miller had 133 rushing yards on 18 carries, including a 2-yard touchdown run.Linebacker Cameron Wake, a five-time Pro Bowler, defended Burke, saying: "He's good," and placed most of the blame on player performance."There's no magic pill, there is no secret 鈥?it's defense," Wake said. "Each player has a gap or a man or a zone, whatever it is. At some point, the ball is going to get there, and someone is accountable for that. Every man for 60 minutes has to be there. We'll find that guy who's not doing what they're supposed to be doing."After a 3-0 start to the season with wins over the Titans, Jets and Raiders Tashaun Gipson Jersey , the Dolphins have slumped to fall to 4-4."We didn't get this one, but at the same time, four weeks ago, everybody was all flowers and cotton candy and puppies and all that," Wake said. "It's not a situation where the sky is falling, but you've got to look at yourself in the mirror, each man from top to bottom and ask: 'What is your role and are you fulfilling that role?'"With starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill still sidelined with a shoulder injury, the Dolphins turned to Brock Osweiler for a third straight game. In his return to Houston, where he spent one season, Osweiler completed 21 of 37 passes for 241 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. Receiver DeVante Parker had 134 yards on six catches."We need to learn from it and get back to work," Osweiler said. "Coach Gase just told us in the locker room that we need to hone in on the details of our system, and he's exactly right."After Thursday's loss, Gase said he didn't know if Tannehill would be healthy in time for Miami's next game on Nov. 4 against the Jets and that he'd worry about that next week.
