Hester has two kickoff returns and four punt returns for touchdowns this season. He returned five kicks for scores last season as a rookie.
Hester's 11 combined career return touchdowns are two shy of the NFL record held by Brian Mitchell. Hester is third on the all-time list, trailing Eric Metcalf and Dante Hall, who each have 12.
His punt return in Sunday's game also tied the NFL single-season record, which is shared by Detroit's Jack Christiansen (1951) and Denver's Rick Upchurch (1976) .
