yes, the guy actually kicked it backwards

Through Week 12 of the 2008 season, for most returns (kickoff, punt, interception, fumble) that would be Deion Sanders with 19 (6 kickoff, 3 punt, 9 interception, 1 fumble). For kick returns (kickoff and punt) that would be Brian Mitchell with 13 (9 kickoff, 4 punt). Dante Hall has 12 (6 kickoff, 6 punt) and Eric Metcalf has 12 (10 punt, 2 kickoff). Devin Hester has 11 (7 punt, 4 kickoff).

The average NFL career lasts from two to four years.

The shortest punt return for a touchdown was by Shaun Gayle, of the Chicago Bears, who returned a five yard punt for a touchdown against the New York Giants during the 1985-86 NFL divisional playoffs. It was a very windy, 16 degree day at Soldier Field, and when punter Sean Landeta attempted the punt, the wind caused the ball to go off the side of his foot. In fact, Landeta almost completely missed the ball. Gayle then picked the ball up at the five yard line and returned it unchallenged. The Bears went on to win 21-0.
