Oregon has a monopoly on NFL preseason return touchdowns

Two rookies from the Pac-12 power have introduced themselves in style.

Real, live football is back on your televisions, which means it's time for Oregon Ducks to score touchdowns on helpless special teams units.

It started Thursday, when Chiefs rookie De'Anthony Thomas took a punt 80 yard for a touchdown against the Bengals.

Eagles rookie Josh Huff continued the new tradition Friday, bursting down the left side for a kick return touchdown against the Bears.

That's right -- 100% of return touchdowns scored in the NFL this season have been scored by rookies from Oregon. There are 40 other Oregon players currently in the NFL right now, so expect this to continue for at least the regular season.
