Cordarrelle Patterson ties NFL record with eighth career kick return touchdown

Getty Images

The Bears had six points and 117 yards of offense in the first half. They have seven points and a 104-yard kickoff return only 14 seconds gone in the second half.

The Bears have their first lead, 13-7.

Cordarrelle Patterson caught the ball 4 yards deep in the end zone and went coast to coast. Kicker Dan Bailey had the only real shot at him, and Patterson juked him near midfield.

Patterson threw up the deuces before he reached the end zone.

It was his eighth career kickoff return for a touchdown, tying him with Josh Cribbs and Leon Washington for the all-time NFL lead.

  1. One of the biggest pleasures about watching this game is they’re not throwing flags every other play. So refreshing. Take note NFL

  2. Cordarrelle Patterson could have packed his bags and left the NFL as a bust but he continues to put in work and will eventually hold an NFL record. No pony in this dog show but I gotta say good for him.

  3. “Patterson, harvin, and of course Hester were the best I ever saw return kicks“ Bro you should definitely check out some Dante Hall highlights before you hit the hay tonight.

  4. Yea and it’s a good thing he did cuz once again our offense is pathetic. Can we just play our defense and special teams?

  5. I’m completely embarrassed that the Bucs lost to this team. Watching this game, I’m not sure how Chicago has won any games at all. They have the worst offensive line, a god awful quarterback. The jets seriously have far more entertainment value than the Bears who have the most hideous, boring offensive I’ve seen in as long as I can remember. They shouldn’t even be winning THIS game. 100 yards of total offense going in to 4th is a complete joke

    The only team harder to watch than the Jets is Da Bears
    _________________________
    add the Vikings to the list. This Monday Night was the battle of the inept. Cousins and Foles should be benched, or traded for a seventh round, or simply waived.

  7. Bang for the buck, no one was more efficient than Sayers. 6 TD’s on only 92 returns. No one is even close to that ratio.

  8. How is the Bears offense so bad. They are bottom 2-3 in points and yards, despite having a defense that bails them out and gives them good field position. Its atrocious.

  9. I would have NEVER thought a kickoff record could be tied or even possibly broken in the year 2020 or beyond…wow…this is classic 80’s/90’s stuff!!!

  10. Only Gale Sayers averaged more yards per kick off return than Patterson. What’s amazing is that both Patterson and Hester have the moves and no fear, yet could never make it as WR’s.

  11. To the people bringing up Hester, Deven Hester was a great PUNT RETURNER. This is kick returns for touchdowns which is much harder and rarer to pull off since it means running the entire length of the field. Hester wasn’t in Josh Cribbs league (and now Patterson’s) in that category.

  12. ..
    how disgusting… and exciting play with less tan .01% injury rate yet declared as a a high risk danger to be removed from the NFL…

    pathetic, remove all the idiotic rules they changed for kickoffs, less than .01% injury rate isnt remotely dangerous…

  13. Oh, yeah. Very impressive. He ran through holes so big that you could drive a truck through them. The only player on the coverage team he had to beat was the kicker.

  14. I remember a few years ago when he returned a kickoff for a TD against the Packers when they were down 31 to 0 and this guy danced and celebrated like he just won the super bowl or something……

  15. Always liked this guy and I wish the Patriots had kept him after his year here. Last night he often looked liked a man amongst boys out there. In addition to kick returning, he ran the wildcat and lined up as a WR. Heavy duty night for CP84.

    Side note: he was drafted 29th by the Vikings after NE traded them the pick. The picks they got back netted them Jamie Collins, Logan Ryan and a trade for LeGarette Blount. A win-win trade.

    half the people posting never saw Sayers – Also, Cecil Turner ran some back for the Bears –

    Heavy usage? Yes. But, he only got 30 yards on 12 carries and 2 catches for 19 yards. Outside of the kickoff TD, he really wasn’t very efficient. As to that trade, outside of a return man, I think most Viking fans consider him a bust. A 1st round pick for a good return man is not a win of a trade in my book, especially when he does not return punts as well. For what it is worth, I think the Bears would be better sticking him in at WR and giving him half as many carries on jet sweeps as opposed to lining him up in the backfield. His speed would help him more on those.

  18. That’s really impressive for a guy his size – the roster on the Bears website has him listed at 6’2 238.

  19. I just turned 60 years old. I wonder if I could have run him down. I go to my fridge a lot, and I’m pretty quick doing that!

    He did the very same thing late in a game while his Vikings were being annihilated by Seattle in Minneapolis.

    Brian Mitchell too.

  22. Wow. Good job outta him. He’s up there with Devin Hester and Joshua Cribbs.

    I remember nobody more electric to watch than Desmond Howard of Green Bay. Modern-Era all-time best, IMO, second only to the great Jim Thorpe, whom I never saw play but whose acts of athleticism are legendary.
