Hopkins should have set a new career high in receiving yards Sunday, but his beautiful 53-yard, one-handed catch late in the second quarter was wiped out by an illegal formation penalty on Tyson Clabo.
All but one of Hopkins' catches went for at least 10 yards. His longest catch was 49 yards and he was targeted nine times. Though, Sunday was the first time in three games he did not have a touchdown.
The Texans are back in action Week 4 against the Bills.

Hopkins was limited to just one grab for 7 yards in the first half, but bounced back with a score after half time. He came down with a 12-yard score in the third quarter. He finished the game with three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown in a 30-14 victory.
Hopkins has seven catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns through his first two weeks of the season. He'll look to score in his third straight game in New York against the Giants in Week 3.
Hopkins' touchdown came with 4:15 left in the second quarter and gave Houston a 7-6 lead. He caught a second-down pass from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick at the Redskins' 40-yard line and then made one defender miss on his way to the end zone for his third career touchdown.
Hopkins finished with 89 yards, which trailed only Andre Johnson's 93 yards. Hopkins had four catches on five targets.
The Texans are back in action Week 2 at Oakland.
