CHICAGO (AP) - Devin Hester extended his NFL record for combined touchdowns on kick returns with his 16th when he ran a kickoff back 98 yards for the Chicago Bears early in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings’ Adrian Peterson had just scored on a 4-yard run when Hester delivered the longest kickoff return of his career.

He turned to his right and was touched once on his way to the end zone, making it 33-10. It was his first kickoff return for a touchdown since Nov. 25, 2007, against Denver.

Hester set a record with his 11th punt return for a touchdown against Carolina on Oct. 2.
