Hester ties NFL mark with 19th return TD

Bears kick returner Devin Hester scored his 19th return touchdown against the Redskins this afternoon, which ties him with Deion Sanders for most return TDs of all-time.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears has tied Hall of Famer Deion Sanders' NFL record with his 19th return for a touchdown.

Hester has brought back a punt 81 yards for a score in the second quarter against the Washington Redskins on Sunday. It is Hester's 13th punt return for a TD, extending his own record in that category.

He also has returned five kickoffs and one missed field goal for touchdowns.

Hester had not scored on a return in nearly two years, since Nov. 13, 2011.

The Redskins have allowed a punt return for a touchdown in two consecutive games, and against Oakland in Week 4 surrendered a TD on the return of a blocked punt.
