In just 15 games, Brandin Cooks surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for his second straight season with the Houston Texans.
"It's nothing without these other ten guys on the field, these coaches," Cooks said after the game. "So that's more of a credit to those guys than any individual playing. It's a blessing and it's the guys around me that help me get that."
Heading into last week's game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Cooks was just 55 yards shy of the mark, but was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 List and did not play. In Sunday's 23-7 loss at San Francisco, the eight-year veteran reached the career milestone in the fourth quarter.
Cooks finished with a team-high seven catches for 66 yards and a touchdown. He caught an eight-yard touchdown pass from QB Davis Mills in the second quarter to give Houston a 7-0 lead.
Cooks now leads the Texans with 87 catches for 1,011 yards (11.6 average) and has scored six touchdowns. He has now eclipsed 1,000 yards on the season for the sixth time in his career and is currently one of eight active players with at least six 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
