CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears star Devin Hester broke his own NFL record Sunday when he returned a punt 64 yards for a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints, his sixth kick return TD of the season.

Hester returned five kicks for scores last season as a rookie. This year he has two kickoff returns and four punt returns for TDs.

Hester's 11 combined career kick return touchdowns are two shy of the record held by Brian Mitchell.
