Hopkins made all four field goals and all five extra points in Sunday's win against the Saints. Hopkins has made 16 of 17 field goals and all 19 extra points this season. His only miss coming on a 50+ yarder.
Hopkins has been a bright spot through Week 7, making 11 of 12 field goals including 2 of 3 from 50+ yards. Hopkins was brought in because of his strong leg on kickoffs but his accuracy on field goals has been a pleasant surprise.
Hopkins made two of three field goals - making a 52 yarder and missing a 53 yarder in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. Hopkins is eight for nine on field goals this season.
Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins converted his sole field goal for 46 yards and was also perfect on three point-after attempts in Sunday's 24-10 victory over the Rams. Hopkins enjoyed a perfect regular-season debut in the Redskins' upset victory after being signed earlier in the week to replace Kai Forbath. The third-year pro also posted four touchbacks in five kickoffs, validating the Redskins' decision to release their veteran kicker for the moment. However, as with any young placekicker, Hopkins will be evaluated week-to-week as the season goes on.
The Redskins released kicker Kai Forbath on Monday, coach Jay Gruden confirmed. He said the Redskins wanted a stronger leg on kickoffs. To take his spot on the roster, the Redskins signed former Bills and Saints kicker Dustin Hopkins.
