Brian Hoyer completed 4/8 passes to DeAndre Hopkins for 39 yards and a touchdown. Mallett completed 5/5 passes to Hopkins for 59 yards and a touchdown. He also found Hopkins for a two-point conversion and the receiver drew a 15-yard pass interference penalty on another Mallett attempt. It's a small sample size, but it doesn't appear that there will be any "drop off" from Hoyer to Mallett as far as Hopkins is concerned.
Texans will start Ryan Mallett in Week 2
