WATCH: Antoine Winfield Jr. just embarrassed NMSU's entire coverage team
You won’t see many punt returns better than this one.
In the second quarter of Minnesota’s season opener against New Mexico State, defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. fielded a punt and appeared to be headed to the turf pretty quickly. That’s when he completely embarrassed the entire Aggies coverage team.
Winfield broke tackles, shed defenders and sprinted 75 yards for a Gopher touchdown.

That may not be the only time we see Winfield take one back to the house this season.
