DeAndre Hopkins apparently didn’t want to stay on Revis Island.
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is touted as one of the best, if not the best, at his job in the NFL, but Hopkins wasn’t fazed by that. The Houston Texans wide receiver burned Revis not once but twice Sunday.
The first time, quarterback T.J. Yates targeted Hopkins late in the second quarter, and Hopkins made a one-handed grab that looked easy.
And not too long after that, Hopkins got out of Revis’ reach and tripped him up on an unbelievable 61-yard touchdown.
Revis headed to the locker room with a head injury in the third quarter, so things aren’t looking great for the Jets’ defense. The Texans also walked away with a 24-17 win, so things aren’t looking great for the Jets in general, either.
