WATCH: DeAndre Hopkins with suplex tackle after interception


by - Assoc. Editor -

The Houston Texas (0-1) fell to the New Orleans Saints (1-0) 30-28 on a last-second 58-yard field goal on Monday Night Football.

Deshaun Watson was 20-for-30 for 268 yards and three touchdowns while DeAndre Hopkins had 8 catches for 111 yards with two scores...AND a huge tackle.

Hopkins had a suplex-style tackle after an interception on a poorly thrown pass by Watson. Hopkins got a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty after the tackle with the teams having a short skirmish after the impressive takedown.

"I didn't know I can't tackle like that," Hopkins said to the media following the game. "The ref said you can't tackle like that. I guess I'll play touch next time, tag. I guess just wrap them up and hope that his teammate doesn't come over and knock you out."
