2007 was a great year for kick returns. NFL and team records were set by Eliss Hobbs and Micheal Spurlock, Joshua Cribbs emerged as a major weapon, and, of course, Devin Hester continued to make special teamers look downright silly. Here are ten of the best returns from the 2007 season.
It seems every week [Devin Hester](/player/devinhester/2506897/profile) is has a "can't-Miss Play," taking a kick back for a touchdown. The [Vikings](/teams/minnesotavikings/profile?team=MIN) learned that the hard way in Week 6.
Blocked field goals are rare; seeing that block turn into a touchdown is an even rarer feat, but that's exactly what Dallas accomplished in Week 7.
It wasn't pretty, but it worked. Cedric Griffin takes a lateral from Ben Leber, fumbles, recovers and races to the end zone for a wild score.
Cleveland's [Josh Cribbs](/player/joshcribbs/2506222/profile) shows why he is one of the best return specialists in the NFL with this 100-yard TD return vs. Pittsburgh in Week 10.
The [Panthers](/teams/carolinapanthers/profile?team=CAR)' opting out of a long field goal attempt for a pooch punt against the [Packers](/teams/greenbaypackers/profile?team=GB) in Week 11 turned out to be a poor decision.
We could make an entire list just consisting of [Devin Hester](/player/devinhester/2506897/profile)'s returns. This one comes against Denver in Week 12.
It took 32 years, 512 games and 1,865 kickoffs before Micheal Spurlock recorded the first kickoff return for a TD in [Buccaneers](/teams/tampabaybuccaneers/profile?team=TB) history in Week 15.
