Paul, who has quickly emerged as a favorite of quarterback Kirk Cousins, was targeted nine times in the passing game. He hauled in six of those passes for 68 yards, including a long of 37 yards.
Paul has been a solid contributor in each of the team's first three games, and will look to keep that going in Week 4 against the Giants. He has 18 receptions for 253 yards heading into Thursday's game.
Paul followed up his 86-yard showing in Week 1 by going off for a team-high 99 yards Sunday. He hauled in eight of 11 passes thrown his way to lead the team in catches as well, including a 2-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Paul has emerged as one of the top options in the team's passing game through two games, having recorded 12 receptions for 185 yards. He will try to keep it going in Week 3 against the Eagles.
Primarily a special teams player, Paul is suddenly staring at a big opportunity.
Although, it wasn't all positive news for Paul during a 17-6 loss. On a third-and-7 play with 4:06 left in the third quarter, Paul picked up 48 yards on a reception, but he was stripped of the football down in the red zone and the Texans recovered the fumble at the 9-yard line.
The 86 yards were by far a career high for Paul, who was targeted four times in the game. His previous career high was 37 yards.
The Redskins are back in action Week 2 against Jacksonville.
