Will Fuller V makes history…again

Will Fuller
Will Fuller V did it again.
After making his NFL debut with a 100-yard receiving performance against the Chicago Bears last week, Fuller followed up with another stellar outing at NRG Stadium. In the 19-12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the rookie wide receiver had four receptions for 104 yards. Fuller became the first rookie in Texans history to open his NFL career with back-to-back 100-yard receiving games.
Quarterback Brock Osweiler said he wasn't surprised by the rookie's early success.
"I think it says everything about his work ethic," Brock Osweiler said. "You don't just randomly have back-to-back 100-yard games in the National Football League. That takes somebody who works extremely hard and somebody who is constantly getting better at their craft."
Fuller took every rep in training camp and was constantly taking notes, according to Osweiler. His presence has also forced defenses to choose between double-teaming DeAndre Hopkins or focusing their attention elsewhere. Fuller's productivity has not affected Hopkins, who led the receivers with seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. 
"That's a very nice start, I would say," Founder, Chairman, and CEO Bob McNair said. "He's (Fuller's) a terrific player. He's going to do nothing but get better. Of course Hopkins had a great day, too. We are blessed with some good, young receivers. It's going to be fun watching them."
The (2-0) Texans will next face the (2-0) New England Patriots on Thursday night in a primetime road game.
