TY Hilton: Winner

For the fourth time this year, TY Hilton eclipsed 100 yards receiving on Sunday. Hilton, and the rest of the Indy pass catchers, are likely all very thankful to have quarterback Andrew Luck back in peak shape. Through just 11 games, Hilton already has more receiving yards than he did through all 16 games in 2017.

Hilton dominated the Texans secondary on Sunday. Catching nine of his 12 targets for 199 yards. Hilton appeared open almost every time he was thrown at, catching chunks of yards at a time. No matter what the Texans did, they could not seem to contain Hilton, or any of the Colts receivers.

The Colts stopped the Texans’ massive nine-game win streak to come within two games of the division lead. The win also moved the Colts record to above .500 and puts them just one spot out of the playoffs.

The Colts are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. Luck and Hilton are clicking and don’t appear to be slowing down. With continued performances like this, Hilton could help the Colts not only reach the playoffs, but make a run at a Super Bowl appearance.
