MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Devin Hester has set the NFL record with his 14th career return for a touchdown.

Hester returned a punt 64 yards in the third quarter on Monday night, giving the Chicago Bears a 27-7 lead over the Minnesota Vikings.

Hester fielded a line drive punt from Chris Kluwe and ran right up the sideline virtually untouched for the score.

Brian Mitchell held the previous record with 13, which Hester tied with an 89-yard punt return against Seattle in Week 6. Hester has returned 10 punts and four kickoffs for TDs in just 74 career games. His 108-yard return of a missed field goal in the 2007 Super Bowl does not count in that total.

Mitchell played in 223 career games.
