DeAndre Hopkins welcomed to ‘Madden 99 Club’ after Hail Mary catch
DeAndre Hopkins made the play of NFL Week 10 with an incredible Hail Mary catch to seal the Arizona Cardinals’ 32-30 comeback win over the Buffalo Bills.
As a reward for his ability to fight off multiple Bills defenders — and a bolstering of an already impressive résumé — Hopkins has become the newest member of the “Madden 99 Club.”
The announcement that Hopkins has joined the exclusive fraternity in the “99 Club” was shared Thursday by the official Twitter account of “Madden NFL 21.”

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was the most recent addition to the “Madden 99 Club” before Hopkins, and a look at Cardinals wideout’s dazzling display of athleticism on Sunday certainly justifies his inclusion.
