Bears' Hester ties NFL mark with 19th return TD
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.
