Hopkins wound up getting carried off the field by teammates after the score, but it wasn’t because of the touchdown.
“I rolled my ankle on a slant at the beginning of that drive, so it was hard to run out there,” Hopkins said in his postgame media session. “The guys knew it. I stayed down for a minute, and they came over and took me off.”
It was Hopkins’ second touchdown of the game and he caught 10 passes for 170 yards overall in the 29-22 victory. Claiborne called the wideout “unbelievable” after the game, which would be an apt description if his remarkable performances were a little less frequent.
