    Default Still Haven't Found It

    I've been looking for it but haven't found it including on the CBS sites, which televised the game.

    Chargers' Cromartie returns missed FG record 109 yards for TD

    MINNEAPOLIS -- San Diego Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie returned a missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown as the first half ended Sunday at Minnesota -- the longest play in NFL history.

    The Vikings lined Ryan Longwell up for a 57-yard kick, which was on line but fell just short of the crossbar. Cromartie, camped out at the end line, leaped to catch the ball without stepping out of bounds and started his return.

    He raced up the right sideline, got some good blocks and scored untouched to give the Chargers a 14-7 lead into the locker room. Vikings coach Brad Childress was so upset he chucked his headset off and was so flustered he started to leave the sideline before realizing there was still an extra point attempt.

    The previous record for longest play was 108 yards, missed field goal returns, shared by Chicago teammates Devin Hester and Nathan Vasher and a kickoff return by New England's Ellis Hobbs.

    Cromartie scored two touchdowns last week against the Houston Texans -- a fumble recovery in the end zone and a 70-yard interception return.

    Damn, that was a sweet play. Too bad it got overshadowed by AP setting the single game rushing record with 296 yds.

    As a diehard Sooner fan and a sworn enemy of USC, I think its fair to put the Adrian Peterson vs. Reggie Bush debate to rest.

    pretty cool for him that his record will never be broken because you can not get any closer to the back of the end zone than he was.
