Colts punter blows up Broncos returner


Trindon Holliday is one of the most electrifying punt returners in the game of football today. The 5’6 Denver Broncos wide receiver is extremely quick and elusive, but he had one of the more embarrassing games of his four-year NFL tenure last night in front of a national audience on Sunday Night Football.

After fumbling a first quarter punt, a giveaway that would eventually lead to a Colts touchdown, Holliday proceeded to get absolutely lit up by Indianapolis punter Pat McAfee on the ensuing kickoff. Like, this wasn’t just a big hit for a punter…this would have been a big hit for anyone on the field.

At 5’6, Holliday is the shortest player currently in the NFL, which could help explain why McAfee was able to get such a good lick on him. Either way, a pretty embarrassing highlight permanently embedded on Holiday’s NFL resume. I’m sure he’s going to catch some heat for that one in the locker room and on the practice field for quite some time.
