PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Detroit's Jeremy Ross had a punt and kickoff return for a touchdown, and Kansas City also had one of each, the first time two teams did it on the same day in the NFL since at least 1940, according to STATS.

Ross ran a punt back 58 yards and a kickoff 98 yards in the Lions' 34-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in blizzard-like conditions.

In Washington, Quintin Demps had a 95-yard kickoff return and Dexter McCluster had a 74-yard punt return in the Chiefs' 45-10 win over the Redskins, also played in the snow.
