Dion Lewis started his birthday celebration early.
Lewis, who turned 25 on Sunday, put the New England Patriots on the scoreboard in the first quarter of their Week 3 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Gillette Stadium. The running back started, stopped and started again while dancing his way to an 8-yard touchdown run.
Lewis has been a big surprise to open the 2015 season. He totaled 258 yards from scrimmage (109 rushing yards, 149 receiving yards) in New England’s first two games, both victories.
Lewis’ first-quarter TD against Jacksonville capped a five-play, 64-yard drive in which tight end Rob Gronkowski caught two passes for 53 yards.
