Kenyan Drake knows a thing or two about timely kick returns. And he did it again on Sunday.
The former Alabama running back returned a kick 96-yards for a touchdown to give the Dolphins a 27-23 lead. The Jets had just taken a lead, so Drake’s touchdown could not have come at a better time.

Drake famously returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the national championship game last year against Clemson. Drake was selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The touchdown was the second of Drake’s NFL career.
His college team hasn’t missed a beat since his departure, as the Crimson Tide are 9-0 this year and ranked No. 1 in the country. The Crimson Tide take on Mississippi State on Saturday.
