The Indianapolis Colts picked up a great victory over their AFC South rivals this weekend in the Tennessee Titans in large part thanks to the performances of their key offensive players.
Quarterback Andrew Luck and wide receiver T.Y. Hilton were both phenomenal in this game as they helped the Colts pick up a dominant 38-10 win against the Titans.
Luck had another great game, completing 23-of-29 passes for 297 yards and three touchdowns, his seventh-straight game having three or more touchdowns in a game.
Hilton had his best outing on the year as well, as he caught 9-of-9 targets for 155 yards and two touchdowns.
His best touchdown out of the two occurred midway through the third quarter when Luck connected with him on a 14-yard score near the sideline.
It was so close to the sideline, that the wide receiver managed to keep himself in bounds and the play alive by keeping his heel in the air as he caught the ball. He then turned upfield for the score.
This play will definitely end up on many highlight reels tonight and tomorrow as this weekend’s NFL action is reviewed and analyzed as it’s probably the best piece of footwork that you’ll see all season.
Hilton also had a 68-yard touchdown reception in the game, but his footwork wasn’t near as impressive on that play as it was on this one.
As previously mentioned, Luck recorded his seventh-straight game having three or more touchdowns in a game. Only Tom Brady (2007) and Peyton Manning (2004) have posted longer streaks.
The Indianapolis quarterback now ties Dan Marino for the third-longest streak in the Super Bowl era.
Thanks to the performances of Luck and Hilton, the Colts managed to pick up the convincing win and move to a 5-5 record on the year. They’re currently sitting on a four-game winning streak.
Indianapolis will play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 12.
