Spend Your Afternoon Watching All 20 Of Devin Hester's Return TDs
Devin Hester has returned 14 punts for touchdowns, five kickoffs, and a missed field goal which he took 108 yards against the Giants in 2006. In total, Hester has 20 "return" touchdowns, which is now the NFL record after he broke a tie with Deion Sanders last night against a Buccaneers team that looked/played like an XFL team. (Seriously, what's with those jerseys?)
If you were to add up the yardage Hester's accumulated on his way to the end zone on special teams, you'd get 1,603. That's 16 football fields of touchdown plays that don't involve a play call.
