30. "Don't Kick it to Devin!"

Date: 2/4/2007
Super Bowl: XLI
Matchup: Bears vs. Colts
Location: Miami

In the buildup to Super Bowl XLI, much of the talk centered around stopping the Bears' dynamic rookie returner, Devin Hester. During the regular season he notched six return touchdowns in the first 14 weeks, and had an additional return TD in the playoffs called back due to a penalty away from the ball. Teams had basically stopped kicking to him. So what did the Colts do to start the game? They kicked it right to Hester, who responded with an electrifying 92-yard touchdown return to give his team the quickest lead in Super Bowl history. Unfortunately, their quarterback was Rex Grossman and thus the Bears would go on to lose the game 29-17.
