Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton had himself a great year with the Indianapolis Colts as he helped the team reach the playoffs yet again. This time they enter the first round with the division under their belts.
Last year Hilton brought in 50 receptions for 861 yards and seven touchdowns, his longest being 70. This year he’s seen an increase in receptions with 82 and recorded 1,083 receiving yards but with only five touchdowns.
Hilton averages 13.2 during the regular season and is hoping to continue his play during the post-season. First up are the Kansas City Chiefs. A team whose defense has played great for the most part and features a new look offense that has lit teams up.
Indianapolis is trying to avoid becoming one of those teams that get torched by Alex Smith and the Chiefs. The Chiefs got on the board first with a touchdown from Alex Smith to wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, but the Colts responded with some big plays of their own.
Now during Indy’s first possession of the post season, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton has made defensive back Dunta Robinson look silly.
First Robinson tried to tackle Hilton near the sidelines but Hilton delivered such a beautiful move that it nearly caused him to lose his balance. Hilton was running a slant route and wasn’t covered in the middle of the field (until Robinson tried to arm tackle him) which allowed him to pick up a decent amount of yards.
A couple plays later, Andrew Luck was able to place the ball over the shoulder of his 5’9 speedy wide receiver which tied the game at seven all. Hilton beat Robinson once again.
