(INDIANAPOLIS) — After two wins a year ago, the Indianapolis Colts continue to surprise the NFL.
Rookie T.Y. Hilton had two touchdowns and the Colts beat the Buffalo Bills 20-13 on Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Hilton ran back a punt 75 yards in the first quarter to open the scoring for the Colts (7-4). He also caught a touchdown in the third quarter. “That surprises nobody on this team and that’s what he’s paid to do,” veteran Colts receiver Reggie Wayne said. “I’m excited for every one of these guys when they make a big play.”
Quarterback Andrew Luck threw for 140 yards and a touchdown in the victory despite being sacked four times.
The Bills (4-7) got 107 yards rushing from C.J. Spiller, but could not overcome the Colts after quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick pulled them within seven with a fourth-quarter touchdown pass. “This one was obviously really needed,” Fitzpatrick said.
