Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns against Kansas City, breaking and then extending the NFL career record.
After his 100-yard return in the first quarter broke the league record, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound veteran sped 103 yards in the second quarter.
His first return of the day was the seventh of his five-year career and broke the record he had shared with five others.
On that one, he broke free from at least six players who got their hand on him. In his second, he took the ball 3 yards deep in the end zone, cut left, then right and was hardly touched. The 103-yard return was a yard short of the Browns record. Cleveland's 269 yards in returns were a team record.
Cribbs came into the season with five touchdown returns of kickoffs and had a 98-yard return against Pittsburgh on Oct. 18.
Cribbs had been tied with Dante Hall, Gale Sayers, Mel Gray, Travis Williams and Ollie Matson.
The two returns in a game tied the league record.

“Breaking News” eh?
Couldn’t happen to a better guy.
Every Cleveland Browns win falls into that category these days.
Bread & Circuses courtesy of a collection of criminal thugs is now in Breaking News. Lovely.
Sorry, but I’m a Bengals fan....
And I used to think Eric Metcalf was impressive....
Its a new record for crying out loud!
A new record? Kind of like our national debt?
It's Cleveland, for pity's sake...throw him a bone. :-)
Now for some REAL NEWS!
THE COLTS ARE THE ONLY TEAM THAT IS UNDEFEATED!!!!!!!!
Top that, my friend!
We can talk about that all day and it will still be there.
Did you talk about the ND in church today as well?
We’re 3~11! We’re 3~11! We’re 3~11!
Wooof! Woof! Wooof!
If my priest had launched in to a wild cheer for the Browns in midst of mass, I'd have some choice comments for him afterwards.
