Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The connection between Brock Osweiler and DeAndre Hopkins this year has been very hit and miss.
After back to back 1,000-yard season Hopkins failed to replicate his past success with Osweiler in 2016.
Many times throughout the season Osweiler targeted the pro-bowl wide receiver only to have a good chunk of those passes intercepted.
Of late, the connection between the two has been more in sync leading to 182 yards during the past two games.
“I think we found a way to have some success last week,” Brock Osweiler said. “I think part of that is we were playing on the ball in an up-tempo system and we were really just running our bread and butter plays, we weren’t doing anything flashy, we were just running plays that we’ve been running since OTAs (organized team activities), we kind of call it the back of our call sheet plays things that we all know inside and out.”
Up-tempo has done the Houston Texas well this year when they have used it.
Many players throughout the season have shared how much that they enjoy when the team goes no-huddle and it seems to be something that they execute well.
