Muffed punt leads to another Texans TD in KC

Special teams helped the Houston Texans get off to a hot start in Kansas City on Sunday.

After building a 14-0 lead which included a blocked punt for a score, the Texans punted for the first time with 2:20 left in the first quarter of the AFC Divisional Round game at Arrowhead Stadium. Bryan Anger delivered a 47-yard punt to the Kansas City 9-yard line, but Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill muffed the return. Keion Crossen recovered and Houston's offense took over at the 6-yard line.

Deshaun Watson scrambled for two yards on first-and-goal, then threw a quick four-yard touchdown pass to Darren Fells on the very next play.

Houston took a 21-0 lead over the Chiefs with 1:21 left in the first quarter.
