HOUSTON -- Houston Texans kick returner Andre' Davis became the seventh player in NFL history to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in the same game on Sunday in a 42-28 victory over Jacksonville.

Davis, in his sixth season, had a 97-yard return in the final minute of the second quarter after the Jaguars had tied the game at 14. He ran across the field to elude a pack of defenders, then raced down the sideline for the score.

He took the opening kickoff of the second half in the end zone, hesitated a moment, then sprinted straight up the field for a 104-yard touchdown, the longest play in Texans history.

Davis was the first player this season to return two kickoffs for scores in the same game. Chicago's Devin Hester did it for touchdowns against St. Louis on Dec. 11, 2006.
