TDIF: Nathan Vasher’s 108-Yard TD Return

Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, TCIPF Staff, This Day in NFL History

On this date in football seven years ago, Chicago’s Nathan Vasher returned a missed field goal for a 108-yard touchdown – tying for the second longest play in NFL history behind Antonio Cromartie’s 109-yard touchdown return.  The Bears’ cornerback was able to maneuver the length of the field and into the record books with a few seconds left before halftime.

During his college years at Texas, Vasher obtained the nickname “ESPN3”, due to his highlight-making abilities.  Vasher’s record return against the San Francisco 49ers was yet another highlight he could add to his reel.  Here’s a look back at the play, as originally presented in “Week in Review.”
