DeAndre Hopkins gave Darrelle Revis fits on Sunday en route to the Texans 24-17 win over the Jets. The third-year wideout had 118 yards on five catches and two touchdowns, including a pretty 61 yard bomb barely out of reach of a diving Revis. Hopkins now has 76 catches for 1,045 yards, and nine touchdowns this season, all of which are numbers that place him among the league’s best.
After the game, Hopkins playfully mocked the all-world cornerback when referencing the media hype surrounding the potential problems Revis may give the wideout.
“Yeah, of course, it’s ‘Revis Island,’ as ya’ll say,” Hopkins said, using his fingers to make air quotes as he said Revis’ nickname,
On top of that, Revis is doubtful for next weeks game against Miami due to a concussion he suffered in Sunday’s game
AND ON TOP OF THAT, the Texans social media team had a little fun with Hopkins winning the matchup against Revis.

Well done. Would have packed a bit more punch if the Texans weren’t 5-5 and on the playoff fringe. But hey, tip of the cap.
