Hester and Mitchell each have 13 career scores, although Hester reached the milestone after only 262 career returns, while it took Mitchell 1,070 attempts to set the record.
"The return game is looking pretty good, but I hate they called Danieal [Manning's] kickoff return back. That would've been a key point to this game," Hester said. "But our special teams is starting to step up. We just got to make sure we put everything together and come up with a win."
After a two-year drought, Hester already has returned two punts for touchdowns this season.
