Only In The CFL Can You Return A Kick 129 Yards For A TD (Video)
National Football League players may be bigger, stronger, faster and more skilled than Canadian Football League players, but there are still some things that a CFL player can do, and an NFL player can’t.
Among those things is returning a field-goal 129-yard for a touchdown. For proof of this, look no further than the fact that the longest touchdown in NFL history came on a 109-yard missed field-goal return by Antonio Cromartie during a game between the San Diego Chargers and the Minnesota Vikings, which is 19-yards shorter than the 129-yard missed field-goal return for a touchdown that we witnessed Tristan Jackson record during Saturday’s CFL game between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the BC Lions.
However, we should probably mention the fact that Tristan benefits from playing in a league with a 110-yard field and 20-yard end zones. But don’t let that take anything away from this impressive play by the Roughriders’ speedster.
