On Thursday against the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Kareem Hunt went through all the joy and fear of playing in his first NFL game.

It started with a fumble on the first possession of the game. Then, Hunt redeemed himself big time. The third-round pick caught this touchdown pass from Alex Smith late in the second quarter.

It’s always an awesome accomplishment for a rookie to score his first regular season touchdown. Hunt received the start after veteran running back Spencer Ware was lost to the season with a knee injury.
