DeAndre Hopkins: I think we have best offense in NFL

The Texans won their fifth straight game when they thrashed the Dolphins on Thursday night and it was a memorable night for the team’s offense.

Deshaun Watson threw more touchdowns than incompletions in a performance that hearkened back to the 2017 outings that made him a sensation, Lamar Miller ran for 133 yards and they completely overwhelmed the Miami defense before the night was out. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who caught two of Watson’s five touchdowns, believes that there’s more to come.

“I think we have the best offense in the NFL,” Hopkins said in his postgame press conference.

Hopkins didn’t get credit for his best catch of the night. He was called for offensive pass interference while securing a one-handed catch between his legs by pinning it to his thigh and said after the game that he’s owed an “apology” from the officials for not getting credit for the play.

Hopkins called it his best catch and it’s a pretty good sign for the Houston offense that taking it off the board didn’t wind up costing them a thing.

  1. If one official was fired last week for missing a motion penalty, then the guy who called OI against Hopkins, should be drawn & quartered. That was as bad a call as I have seen in over 50 years of NFL viewing.

    The catch was as good as the call was bad.

  2. He definitely has the best hands in the NFL. But I don’t think their the best offense in the NFL. The Rams, Chiefs, and Saints are way above the Texans and the rest of the NFL.

  3. I’m happy for Houston and their fans. It’s been a long road to reach this point, and the team is obviously doing something right. Let’s hope they can stay healthy, which is always the trick in the NFL. Congrats to the Texans.

  4. Nope…you’ve just played crappy teams. One of the perks for plying in that joke of a division.

  5. I don’t believe that all. I agree they overwhelmed the Dolphins defense. The Dolphins defense. That is far from thrashing a top NFL defense which would them the best offense in the NFL.

  6. Offensive numbers are up across the board. That what the league wanted. I’ll take the chiefs offense though over any other.

  7. Dont get ahead of yourself. You played the worst defense in the NFL….and probably in all of football

  8. Either that or the Dolphins have the worst secondary in the NFL. But seriously, when Will Fuller is healthy, they’re tough to stop. It looks like he might be hurt again.

  9. The best offense in the NFL is the Chiefs, but they looked great last night. Good to see Watson starting to get up to speed after the injury last year. Watson to Hopkins and Mahomes to Hill is gonna light up scoreboards for a while in the NFL. The New QBs look fun.

  10. LOL. Hopkins is an unreal talent, but he pushes off a lot. Check the highlight from last week when he “burned” Jalen Ramsey and made a one-handed catch.

  11. I want to see a match-up with KC and Mahomes. I’d give Houston the edge due to a better defense than KC!

    ========================================
    Saints average more points per game

  13. I mean, I guess its possible he hasn’t seen the Rams, Falcons, Saints, Vikings, Steelers, Bengals, Chiefs, or Chargers play. It’s also possible he just suppressed the Patriots game.

  14. easy there hop! even before fuller got hurt it wasn’t the best offense in the league and their not even close

  15. DeAndre Hopkins: I think we have best offense in NFL
    ========================================
    Saints average more points per game
    ========================================
    Actually 17 teams average more PPG

  16. You barely beat the woeful Bills. You needed a Peterman pick 6 to top the hapless Buffalo men. I think the Rams, Chiefs and Pats have something to say about your statement.

  17. First off, no, you don’t have the best offense in the NFL (see Kansas City). Please refrain from making such statements after simply demonstrating success against a defense like the Dolphins.

  18. If Josh Allen doesnt get hurt my Bills would have beaten that wonderful offense so dont even go there….

  19. So I watch DeAndre Hopkins and think to myself: “wow this guy is unreal.” So like any other nerd fan boi I decide to follow him on instagram and its like: “wow this dude is a man on the field and a chick off it.” What is up with dudes nowadays being all feminine. No real woman I know wanna be with a guy that shops at ASOS…

    Key word Had, you just lost Fuller for the season

    ——————

    ^^^^ 100% right. The offense is totally different in games where Fuller is out. He stretches the field, helps the running game, and takes bracket coverage away from DeAndre.

    Houston should be looking to trade for a WR right now before the deadline. Keke Coutee is OK, but his role is more of a slot/screen guy. Nothing like Fuller’s role in the offense.

    ===================================================

    We are past the point of saying “that’s what the league wanted” .. everyone knows that. And .. it is what everyone wanted. NFL fans wanted it and especially Fantasy Football fans wanted it.

    If everyone had always wanted bad offense then soccer would be immensely popular in this country .. So it is clear, we all want offense .. can we stop needlessly pointing it out now?

  22. The saints have the best offense in the nfl bar none. Year in and year out they are a top 5 offense. One hit wonders come and go but new orleans offense has been doing for more than a decade

  23. He should think that. Most of us would consider him to be wrong. He should think they are the best, so they keep trying to improve and possibly win more games. But, Chiefs, Rams, and possibly a few other teams would disagree with him.

  24. HOU is averaging 24.9 ppg, good for 17th place in the ppg rankings.

    “Best” apparently is in the eye of the beholder.

  25. Saints are the best “consistent” offense in the NFL. They can score against any defense.
    *************************************

    Huh, i must have missed the fact that the Saints have gone 16-0 over the last several seasons. Apparently they can’t “score against any defense”, well at least enough that is to get wins. But hey, having the “best” offense is great when you’re sitting at home watching other teams play, and win, in the playoffs, so at least you have that.

    Having the “best” offense is akin to “winning the off-season” – as both mean the same thing when it comes to actually, you know, winning the games that you play.

  26. Drew Brees and the Saints would probably disagree…as would nearly 100% of fans across the league but okay…whatever you say.

  27. Anyone can “claim” to have the best offense in the NFL…but the Saints appear on track to prove that this season. Not even counting the continually piling up records NFL for Drew Brees ( a 1st ballot HOFer from any perspective ), the Saints have an unsurpassed pass offense, a bruising running attack, and a quarterback that may finally win the NFL MVP this season. Rah rah for any team you would prefer….but this season, the facts speak for themselves.

  28. Lol. You finally win one game “properly” and now you’re the best in the league? Any Texans fan will admit that their previous 4 wins were anything but inspiring – more like “Thank Sky Daddy we didn’t screw that up!”

    You have 1 good win – just stop.

    ==========================================================

    If you are already the “BEST” how is that “motivation” to improve?

  30. Lol. Its a good offense but not even best in the AFC. Thats between the Chiefs and (gasp!) the Patriots. In the NFC both Rams and Saints are better than Houston. Its only halfway through the season so we will see who was the best offense when all the dust gets settled, but its likely to be one of those four.

  31. He must’ve forgotten about when they played the Bills this year, their offensive output was nil in that game.

    And if L Bell comes back with his head screwed on straight I’ll throw in the Steelers as having a better offense than the Texans

    Maybe that’s because the Saints really have the GOAT 🙂

    There are some fans, players and coaches in Kansas City that might beg to differ.
    _______________________________________________________________________________________

    I assure you, there’s fans in Houston who beg to differ.

    Best receiver in the NFL, but not best talent evaluator.

  35. The best offense is the Rams. Why does everyone rank the Chiefs ahead of them? A big reason why the Chiefs are so good is because of Mahomes. You take him aways the offense is nothing probably. The Rams offense could probably be ran with any competitive QB.

  36. I was waiting for Eagles fans to say they have the best offense since they are the Super Bowl Champs !

  37. So many salty chiefs fans, too funny. I guess you have to lay claim to having the best offense in week 8 since you know you aren’t getting past the Pats in the playoffs hahaha
