The Texans are coming off their biggest win of the season, defeating the Patriots on Sunday Night Football 28-22.
In that game, arguably the best corner, Stephon Gilmore, faced arguably the best receiver in the NFL, DeAndre Hopkins.
Gilmore was coming off a game in while he held Amari Cooper to zero catches.
Hopkins finished the game with 5 catches for 64 yards.
Hopkins took to twitter on Tuesday night and posted a picture of himself making a catch over a grounded Stephon Gilmore with the caption: “when you see 10 double him”

Gilmore saw the tweet and tweeted “Bro was doubled on only 2 snaps all game and wants to be loud lol.” Gilmore didn’t tag Hopkins but clearly was replying to him.
