But I see '76s point. The receiver still has to make the catch if that CB stayed on his man, he would have had an opportunity to prevent Hopkins from making the catch.... the ball was placed very well, he had no shot there. But if he were close enough to tackle Hopkins, DeAndre may not have maintained possession, or even a push.... Hopkins would have had a tougher time getting both feet down.
But since that guy got lost looking for the ball, DeAndre caught it unchallenged.
