KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There aren't many teams in the NFL that can punish opponents with their return game the way the Chiefs can.
Well, actually, there aren't any at all, not after the Chiefs returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns Sunday.
The Chiefs now have four special teams returns for touchdowns -- best in the NFL.
Perhaps even more remarkable, the Chiefs have...

Although he’s most known for being one of the most dangerous kick returners in the NFL, Devin Hester is listed on the Bears’ roster as a wide receiver. But Wednesday and Friday he went through position drills with the defensive backs.

Devin Hester on Friday downplayed his recent work with Bears defensive backs during position drills. However, he believes he could have a positive impact on a game if the situation required him to play defense.

Devin Hester has been dubbed the “Windy City Flyer” and the “greatest return specialist in NFL history,” but is he faster than a cheetah. The Tennessee Titans’ Chris Johnson is the NFL’s fastest running back and perhaps the only professional tailback in the world fast enough to “set the edge” versus opposing defensive ends.
Both Chris Johnson and Devin Hester will...
The Bears' game-changing Devin Hester is back to his big-play ways after a relatively quiet 2012. The Packers have kept Hester out of the end zone in each of their last six meetings, but "all it takes is one."

Take this 81 yard scamper Sunday against the Redskins as evidence: The return was Hester’s 13th punt return for a TD in his career and 18th total return touchdown overall.
