The Houston Texans shocked the Kansas City Chiefs and their fans with a punt block touchdown that gave Houston a 14-0 lead five minutes into their Divisional playoff game. After Houston took a 7-0 lead on a long touchdown, they forced a 3-and-out and Barkevious Mingo blocked the punt. Lonnie Johnson picked up the ball and ran it in for the touchdown.

The block was set up by a Travis Kelce drop on 3rd down, which followed a timeout by Patrick Mahomes to save a delay of game penalty. It was just a horrible series of events for Kansas City.
