The Houston Texans had a spark, having answered Dion Lewis' 13-yard touchdown catch with a field goal in the first quarter at the New England Patriots on Saturday.

And then, they had to go and kick off to Lewis.

Check out the Patriots' running back/kick returner take the ball 98 yards for a touchdown as the Pats opened the gap to 14-3.

The Texans' special teams coach is Larry Izzo, formerly of the Pats. His expression says it all.

Lewis showed his speed on his first score, taking a pass from Tom Brady and turning it into a TD.

But Lewis giveth and he taketh away: After the Texans cut the lead to 14-6 with a field goal, Lewis fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Houston recovered. C.J. Fiedorowicz caught a 10-yard TD as the Texans suddenly found themselves down just 14-13.

Lewis added a 1-yard TD run in the fourth quarter of the Pats' 34-16 win. His rushing, receiving and kickoff return touchdowns were a first by a player in an NFL postseason game. His school, Pitt, was proud to spread the word on Twitter.
