CHICAGO - All-purpose threat Cordarrelle Patterson's seventh career kickoff-return touchdown couldn't have come at a better time for the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
The New Orleans Saints had just jumped out to a 9-0 first quarter lead when Patterson fielded a kickoff 2 yards deep in his own end zone and outraced the Saints coverage unit 102 yards for a touchdown.

That marked Patterson's first kickoff-return touchdown as a member of the Bears but the third time he's taken a kickoff return for a touchdown at Soldier Field, which is the only NFL stadium where Patterson has scored multiple return touchdowns.
Patterson's kick-return touchdown was the first by a Bears player since Chris Williams in 2014 versus the Packers.
Patterson leads the NFL with seven kickoff-return touchdowns since he entered the league in 2013. No other player has more than two in that span, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
This was also his fifth career kickoff return of at least 100 yards, extending his own record for the most by any player in NFL history.
