On Sunday, it paid off in a big way as Hopkins helped rally the Texans to an overtime victory over the Tennessee Titans.
But Hopkins came up big late, after the Texans tied the game and got a two-point conversion.
Hopkins caught a 25-yard pass in overtime to set up first-and-goal and the 1, and three plays later caught the game winning touchdown from Schaub. The heroics came after star receiver Andre Johnson was knocked out of the game with an apparent concussion.
In all, Hopkins had seven catches for 117 yards Sunday.
