Former Wildcat Lonnie Johnson is still a rookie in the NFL, but he certainly didn’t look like one during his scoop-and-score touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday’s AFC Divisional Round.

Johnson went into the end zone standing up after recovering a forced fumble following a blocked punt. His efforts put the Texans up 13-0 over the Chiefs early in the game. Take a look:
