Mark Gaughan's Big Play Breakdown: T.Y. Hilton Double-Move Out and Up
Hilton is the Indianapolis Colts' game-breaking receiver, a three-time Pro Bowler. He's second behind only San Francisco's Marquise Goodwin among all starting receivers in yards per catch this season at 19.29. His 58 catches of 25-or-more yards since 2014 are tops in the NFL.
Hilton is only 5-foot-9 and 178 pounds. The Colts will use him in the slot or send him in motion a lot to allow him to get a free release and avoid getting jammed at the line of scrimmage. Bills cornerbacks must be careful not to bite on Hilton's double-move routes. This was a big play for the Colts against San Francisco in Week 5. He went in motion, then beat cornerback Dontae Johnson on an out-and-up route for a 46-yard gain in overtime.
