For the second week in a row, DeAndre Hopkins put up over 100 yards receiving. It's the first time in his career he's done so in back-to-back games. But despite the season-high nine catches for 157 yards receiving, his performance in Sunday's 48-21 loss to Atlanta couldn't even be defined as "bittersweet."
"Really nothing was sweet about it. Just bitter for the most part," Hopkins said after the game.
Hopkins now has seven career 100-yard receiving games. In the past two games, the third-year wide receiver has totaled 17 receptions for 258 yards and a touchdown.
For Hopkins, getting over the loss requires a short-term memory as the team heads into a short week.
"Easily," Hopkins said when asked how the team could recover from the loss. "Go out and win this division game coming up."
The Texans host the Colts on Thursday night in their first AFC South matchup of the season.
