SAN DIEGO -– Eddie Royal, welcome to "Monday Night Football" stardom.

Royal just thrust himself into the Monday night scrapbook with a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown.

In the first quarter, Royal -- an explosive receiver -- had a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

It has to be one of the best "Monday Night Football" performances ever by a special-teams player.

Royal made both plays with fantastic, defense-splitting, downhill running.
