Knile Davis' opening kickoff TD gets Chiefs rolling

Print

The NFL playoffs kicked off in incredible fashion.

Knile Davis returned the first kickoff of the 2015 playoffs back for a 106-yard touchdown to give the Chiefs a 7-0 lead over the Texans. Kansas City went on to cruise to a 30-0 win.

It's just the fifth time in NFL playoff history that the opening kickoff of a game was returned for a touchdown, per the ESPN broadcast. The last time it happened was Devin Hester for the Chicago Bears to start Super Bowl XLI.

It marked the second-longest kickoff return in playoff history, behind Jacoby Jones' 108-yard return in Super Bowl XLVII.
