Tyrann Mathieu Roasts Texans for DeAndre Hopkins Trade
DeAndre Hopkins was the talk of the NFL on Sunday after his miraculous game-winning touchdown snag against the Buffalo Bills. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray heaved a Hail Mary with timing winding down, somehow finding Hopkins in the end zone despite multiple Bills defenders on him.
After the game, Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu threw shade at the Houston Texans, who traded Hopkins this summer in a move that left many puzzled.
The Kansas City safety took advantage of the opportunity to poke fun at Houston after Hopkins' incredible play. Mathieu's use of "cultural fit" should especially sting the Texans, since the team used this phrase when it announced the firing of vice president of communications Amy Palcic last week.
The change of scenery has benefitted Hopkins during the 2020 campaign. He's second in the league in receiving yards (861) and tied for second in receptions (67). Hopkins has also caught 4 touchdowns as a member of the Cardinals.
On the flip side, Houston is struggling this season. The team currently sits at 2-7 with no signs of righting the ship.
Hopkins won't get to play his former team during the regular season, but he showed them what they're missing with his catch on Sunday.
