Darius Reynaud Ties NFL Record with Two Punt Return Touchdowns in Game

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 30, 2012 – 5:10 pm

Darius ReynaudDarius Reynaud had already displayed his big-play ability during a dominating preseason and in Tennessee’s Week 3 win against Detroit with a franchise-record 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

The Titans’ dynamic return man was at it again on Sunday, returning a pair of punts for touchdowns in Tennessee’s 38-20 season-ending victory over the Jaguars.

Reynaud gave the Titans a 21-14 lead late in the first half on on a 69-yard punt return for a touchdown, the first punt return for a TD in his career.

Then, two minutes into the third quarter, he scored again on an 81-yard punt return, giving the Titans a 28-14 advantage.

Reynaud, who credited his blockers for both scores, set the franchise record and tied the NFL record with two punt return touchdowns in the same game. Only 13 NFL players had previously accomplished the feat, most recently Reggie Bush on Oct. 6, 2008.

“It feels good knowing where I came from. I never thought this would happen,” Reynaud said after the game. “I’m glad that it happened in the last game of the season just to give those fans something to look forward to for next year.”

Reynaud now has three total career touchdowns, and should certainly be in the mix for his same role next season.

    The well-executed style of your weblog such as theme and colors are quite fascinating.
    Did you make use of the expert services of a web design
    organization or is it a DIY? I expect you can respond since I would like to design my own blog site.
    If you do not mind, could you tell me the origin of the theme!
    Many thanks.
