Video: Reggie Bush Return Two Punts for Touchdowns vs Vikings

OK, so the Minnesota Vikings pulled off a much needed victory in the final minute, but let’s talk about Reggie Bush’s record night.

Bush returned not one, but two punts on Monday Night Football and if not for a shoe-string tackle would have had a third. His 176 punt return yards is a franchise record, and his two punt return touchdowns ties an NFL record. A dazzling performance befitting the grand (OK, not quite anymore) stage of MNF.

Is it safe for us to disassociate any hint of the word bust with Bush? Aside from his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, he’s no longer anywhere near that description.

He’s a unique talent that can’t be judged against the prototypical running back. His closest comparison may end up being Devin Hester. Bush has 199 receptions so far in his career, which places him ahead of anyone in NFL history through 33 games.

The trouble is his two punt returns still didn’t help the Saints win, but you can’t exactly hold that against him.
