He received his 11th special teams player of the week award. He has won this award two times this season, the first coming against Carolina.
Hester returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown, his first kick return for a score against the Vikings.
The kick return was the 16th of his career. He had a total 134 yards returning in the game.
Hester had a 27 yard punt return in the game as well that looked to be another score, but FB Tyler Clutts got in the way.
Also, his 48-yard receiving touchdown on the opening drive of the game made him look like a real offensive weapon.
Hester is simply electrifying on returns, here’s to hoping he keeps it up for the rest of the season and the rest of his career.
Pretty soon, they’ll be naming the Special Teams weekly award after Hester if he keeps taking kicks back to the house at this pace.
