The Denver Broncos did their job to start off their Divisional Round matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, when linebacker Von Miller stuffed Ravens running back on third down. Baltimore set up to punt on fourth down and the Broncos put former track star Trindon Holliday back to return.
What happened next was an example of what world class speed can do in the NFL.
Holliday caught the punt and took off sprinting towards the right hash mark. He received a key block and found an opening. There was no looking back. Holliday went untouched until he got inside the five-yard line, but it was took late.
The 90-yard punt return touchdown by Holliday was the first punt return touchdown in Broncos franchise history.
Here is a GIF of Holliday’s return:
The Ravens will have to do a better job of containing Holliday’s speed on special teams or they better get used to watching the back of his jersey running away from them.
