Trindon Holliday Continues Historic Day


Denver Broncos return man Trindon Holliday is having a historic day.

Holliday kicked off scoring in the first quarter when he returned a punt 90 yards for a touchdown during against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC divisional round. It was the first punt return for a touchdown in Broncos postseason history.

It didn’t end there.

Holliday began the second half exactly how he started the first — with a return touchdown. This time, Holliday took the opening kickoff in the second half 104 yards to pay dirt.

With the punt return and kick return touchdowns, Holliday has his place in the NFL history books. He now holds the longest punt return and longest kickoff return touchdowns in NFL history. Not bad for a guy who was cut earlier in the season.

Holliday also becomes the first person in NFL history to have two touchdowns of 90 yards or more in a single postseason game.

The Houston Texans have to be kicking themselves while watching this game. Not only do they need serious help on special teams in the return game, but they let the most dynamic return man this postseason run loose.
