Devin Hester still can make you hold your breath and wait for something incredible whenever he catches a kickoff or punt.

The Chicago Bears' electric return man took another punt to the end zone on Sunday in a 45-41 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Hester took the kick outside of the numbers at his own 19. He cut all the way across the field – kids, don't try this at home – and ran down the other sideline behind a wall of blockers for the 81-yard score.

It was the 19th career return touchdown for Hester, tying Deion Sanders' NFL record.

Given how dangerous Hester is every time he touches the ball, you have to assume he'll pass Sanders before he calls it a career.
