WATCH: Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins scores touchdown against the Texans
Sooner or later, Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins was going to get his against his old team, the Houston Texans.
The three-time All-Pro receiver caught a 1-yard touchdown against the Texans early in the second quarter in Week 7.
Cornerback Desmond King knew the secondary would have a tough day against Hopkins.
“Just making sure that you are playing him, playing the ball,” King offered on ways to stop Hopkins. “He’s a receiver that when the ball is thrown his way, nine times out of 10, he’s going to come down with it. As long as we are in the area and competing all the way until the ball is thrown to the ball is down and whistle blown. That’s all that we can do.”
The Cardinals took the lead 7-5.
