Devin Hester’s 19th career return TD ties Deion Sanders’ NFL record

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

The Bears' electric return took yet another return to the end zone on Sunday, in the second quarter at Washington.

Hester took a punt 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.
