New England Patriots: Ranking the top 5 plays of 2017 so far
3 of 5
3. Dion Lewis’ 103-yard kickoff return touchdown vs. the Broncos
Dion Lewis’ kickoff return touchdown was so nice, even Devontae Booker wanted to give him a pat on the back.
There’s a moment on every kick return when you know it’s going all the way. On Lewis’, it was at the 10-yard line. Great blocking from James Develin, Dwayne Allen, and Matthew Slater gave him an open runway to the end zone and a push from behind by a Broncos defender helped him get there even quicker.
Was it as great as his 98-yard kick return touchdown in the Divisional Round Playoffs? That’s up to you to decide. But, if we can agree on one thing, it’s that Lewis is electric with the ball in his hands.
He notched his second touchdown of the night on an eight-yard run in the third, helping the Patriots to a 42-13 win.
