Cribbs sets NFL record

By Marla Ridenour Published: December 20, 2009

Browns receiver Joshua Cribbs set an NFL record with his seventh kickoff return for a touchdown Sunday at Kansas City, going 100 yards with 3:56 left in the first quarter. Then he added another, a 103-yarder, with 2:31 in the second quarter that was the second-longest in Browns history.

It was the third and fourth returns for touchdowns this year for the former Kent State quarterback, three on kickoffs. Cribbs now has 10 returns for touchdowns in his five-year career.

On the first, Cribbs eluded one tackler, spun away from kicker Ryan Succop around the 30-yard line, then broke free and turned on the speed. He was untouched on the second.

Cribbs became the first Brown to return two kickoffs for TDs in the same game. Eric Metcalf returned two punts for scores against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 24, 1993.
