Hunter Renfrow's NFL career got off to a slow start through the first six games, but he exploded on the scene Sunday in Houston.

During the first quarter of the Raiders' Week 8 matchup with the Texans at NRG Stadium, quarterback Derek Carr dropped back and hit the rookie wide receiver on a slant. The Clemson product broke two tackles and raced 65 yards to the end zone for his first career touchdown.

He gone.

The score gave the Silver and Black and early 7-0 lead, but the Texans answered quickly with Deshaun Watson hitting Duke Johnson for a 12-yard score to tie the game at seven.

The Raiders have been looking to get more out of a thin receiving corps, and Renfrow making an impact would go a long way toward making the offense more lethal in the passing game.
