Devin Hester Wins Award

Devin Hester has been named September's Special Teams Player of the Month.

Hester led the NFL with a combined 602 kickoff return and punt return yards in September. That's slightly behind the pace for the NFL single-season record for combined return yardage (2,432, Michael Lewis, New Orleans, 2002).

Hester is the only NFL player to return both a punt and a kickoff for a TD this season.

I guess those numbers are enough to overlook the 100 times he put the ball on the ground.
