DeAndre Hopkins’ response to Budda Baker after praising DK Metcalf
The Week 7 match between the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks had an abundance of highlights as the Cardinals sneaked out a 37-34 win to hand Seattle their first loss of the season. Ironically, one of the biggest plays of the evening came at the Cardinals’ expense as DK Metcalf galloped his way to prevent what could have been an incredible pick-6 from Budda Baker.
Baker had acres of space ahead of him but was eventually stopped from behind by Metcalf who came out of nowhere to stop the safety from converting on the interception. After the game, Baker took to Twitter to pay some respects to Metcalf but DeAndre Hopkins quickly reminded his teammate who had the last laugh at the end of the game.
And we Hawked them. https://t.co/Lx3oFopdJH

The Cardinals did end up hawking the Seahawks on Sunday and are just now one game away from Seattle in the tough NFC West Division.
Baker’s second quarter interception was just one of QB Russell Wilson’s three interceptions thrown on the evening as the Arizona defense was all up on the 31-year old’s grill. Arguably this season’s top MVP candidate had all sorts of problems on Sunday and couldn’t get his offense rolling in crunch time. Wilson recorded another interception and was sacked for the second time in the evening in a crucial stretch in OT which put the Cardinals in position to win it all.
For his part, Hopkins tallied his third touchdown of the season in the opening quarter which helped the Cardinals keep things close against the Seahawks.
