Deion ‘Prime Time’ Sanders gets emotional with Hester after record-breaking night

Devin Hester couldn’t have scripted it any better. 

The Atlanta Falcons receiver became the greatest returner in NFL history on Thursday night during their 56-14 romp of the Tampa Bay Bucs. 

Hester’s 62-yard score in the second quarter gave him 20 career touchdown returns, breaking the record held by Hall of Famer Deion Sanders.

And "Prime Time" himself was in the building to witness it. 

After the game, Hester and Sanders shared an emotional moment on the NFL Network’s TNF Postgame.

"I’m overcome with emotions right now," Sanders said, holding back tears. "I love you as a man, as a father, as a husband. I remember the beginning, man. I love you and I’m so proud of you."
