“It was huge. Nobody picked us again, but we’re always the underdog, underdog always comes out on top and that’s how we feel.” – Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton on Sunday’s victory.
The Colts’ 34-28 win over the Seahawks yesterday, as we know, nearly plunged into an outright blowout. Down 12-0 in the first quarter, Indianapolis was dangling on the precipice of football disaster – their first three drives netted 9 total yards – when they dialed up a vertical play to T.Y. Hilton (after a three and out by the defense).
Andrew Luck, with a defender pushing guard Mike McGlynn backward into him, sidestepped the pressure and hit a streaking Hilton, who caught the ball around the 31 yard line, made one man miss along the sideline, and jetted into the endzone to complete a 73-yard touchdown.
