Tom Brady officially wins DeAndre Hopkins’ meme contest, receives his signed jersey
After DeAndre Hopkins caught an improbable touchdown on a hail mary for the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10, he held a meme contest on Twitter for his signed jersey. Despite having an abundance of submissions, the winner of Hopkins’ meme contest was some guy named Tom Brady, who is the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

When the Cardinals faced the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, it appeared as if the Bills were going to steal a win in the desert. Josh Allen would find Stefon Diggs for a late-game touchdown, giving Arizona’s offense only 34 seconds to lead a game-winning drive.
Even though the Cardinals didn’t have much time, Kyler Murray and the offense remained calm down the stretch. And after setting themselves up for a hail mary to end the game, Murray was able to evade defenders before uncorking the ball into the end zone.
Murray would target DeAndre Hopkins, who had three defenders draped all over him in the end zone. Nevertheless, he got his hands on the ball and was able to maintain possession of it as he gave Arizona a miraculous victory.
Following the game, Brady would submit a meme for Hopkins’ contest, posting a GIF of a goat to describe the play. Seeing that Hopkins has sent Brady the autographed jersey, it’s evident that the All-Pro wideout was a fan of Brady’s entry into the contest.
While fans are going to be upset to see an NFL player win the contest, Brady adds another signed jersey to his collection.
