By Michael Bearak     Dec 20, 2009 in Sports
Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns ran himself into the record books today with 2-100+ yard kickoff returns for touchdowns.
Most players may dream of returning a kick off for a touchdown, if you are Josh Cribbs today you did it not once, but twice. The Cleveland Browns' wide receiver took the Ryan Succop kickoff back 100 yards to make the score 10-3 Cleveland in the first quarter.
Later with the score 24-13 in favor of Kansas City, Cribbs out did himself and took the kickoff 103 yards for the a touchdown closing the game to 24-20 in the second quarter.
The first return he shook off 6 would-be tacklers on the return. His second, and longer, return he went the distance almost untouched.
These accounted for his 7th and 8th kickoff returns for touchdowns in his 5 year career.
When he ran back his 7th of his career it broke a record he shared with 5 former players. Having 2 in one game also set an NFL record.
