DeAndre Hopkins denies throwing shade at Texans after loss to Chiefs

The Houston Texans had a tough opening night. They did their best to stop Patrick Mahomes with very little luck.

The Super Bowl MVP threw for 211 yards and three touchdowns, Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran through the rain for 138 yards and another score, and the Chiefs began defense of their first championship in 50 years by beating the Houston Texans 34-20 on Thursday night before a socially distanced crowd of about 17,000 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Following the game DeAndre Hopkins tweeted out he was “Grateful”

Hopkins claimed that the tweet was actually about being on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, which I’m not sure why he’d be grateful for:

When the Texans traded receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals, he had three years left on his existing contract. The Texans traded him in large part because he wanted a new deal.

And he finally got one.

Now that’s something to be grateful for, not making an appearance on Jimmy Fallon. Timing is everything.
