DeAndre Hopkins makes splash, sets career-high in Cardinals debut
|Sunday, September 13, 2020, 7:34 PM-|
New offense, no problem for Nuk.
DeAndre Hopkins made his debut in the desert for the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, which made him the highest-paid non-QB in the NFL recently ($27.25 million per year).
Hopkins logged a career-high 14 catches for 151 yards in a 24-20 Arizona win over San Francisco. The catch count is the second-most in a single game for the franchise.
The three-time All-Pro was traded by the Houston Texans over the offseason, which started their season 0-1 with a loss to Kansas City Thursday.
2020 Cardinals first-round draft pick Isaiah Simmons logged three tackles in his debut.
