Bears wide receiver Devin Hester returned a Jason Baker punt 69 yards for a touchdown, setting an NFL record with the 11th punt return for a touchdown during his career. After going two seasons without a return, Hester led the NFL with three punt returns for touchdowns in 2010, allowing him to enter the 2011 season tied with Eric Metcalf for the all-time lead with 10. Entering Sunday, Hester had just three returns for 31 yards before the Panthers punted to Hester just minutes after the three-time Pro Bowl return specialist returned a kick 73 yards that helped set-up Matt Forte's 17-yard touchdown run.
