Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins could see more work out of the slot Saturday, Jan. 4, in the wild-card game against the Buffalo Bills. Hopkins lined up in the slot 30 percent of the time this season, but he could be utilized more there Saturday with Bills CB Tre'Davious White only covering the slot receiver on only 3.8 percent of snaps this season.
Huddle Up: This will be the showcase matchup in the game as Hopkins looks to extend his streak of least five catches to 20 straight games. Hopkins caught 5-of-6 targets for 63 yards and a TD in last year's regular-season meeting with the Bills.
