After Week 6 Punt Return, Devin Hester On Brink Of History

It sure would have been nice if this impressive accomplishment came during a victory, but Devin Hester nevertheless deserves a shout-out for inching ever closer to re-writing the NFL record books. Hester's 89 yard punt return was the

13th combined kick return touchdown (nine punts, four kickoffs) of his still-young career. That mark ties him with Brian Mitchell for most in NFL history. Also of note is that Hester is now just one punt return TD away from tying Eric Metcalf for the most ever.
