Devin Hester catches touchdown for second straight week

Attempts to turn Devin Hester into a productive receiver with the Bears never quite succeeded as hoped, but the Falcons have seem some rewards from sprinkling the return ace into their offense this preseason.

Hester turned a short reception into a 31-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the Falcons’ game against the Titans. The play showed that Hester still has plenty of jets to turn on when given the opportunity and also displayed running back Jacquizz Rodgers’s knack for pass protection, as his block gave Matt Ryan time to deliver the strike to Hester.

Hester also caught a touchdown in last week’s game against the Texans, although that one didn’t come with the first team.

The score capped an efficient 11-play, 79-yard Falcons drive that saw their starting offense convert after being stuck in a hole after a holding penalty by left tackle Jake Matthews in the first-round pick’s first start at the position. He added a false start on the team’s second possession, which followed a quick three-and-out, and Roddy White picked up two offensive pass interference penalties so not all is going smoothly for Atlanta.

    Glad to see Hester contributing in ways other than Special Teams! Hopefully this can translate into the regular season. Julio, Roddy & Harry Douglas are already dangerous and having Hester actually be decent is one Hell of an explosive WRing Corp!

    Pollard is the pretender! Been decleated twice. He needs to keep his mouth shut

    I really hope to see Hester succeed in Atlanta. I think it was a mistake letting him go. Chicago misses you Devin.
