T.Y. Hilton Punt Return Touchdown Gives Colts 7-3 Lead On Bills

In the lead-up to today's game between the Buffalo Bills and the Indianapolis Colts, a lot of attention was being paid to Bills punt returner Leodis McKelvin and the record-setting season he's having.

So, naturally, the Bills gave up a 75-yard punt return touchdown to Indianapolis rookie T.Y. Hilton to open the scoring in today's Week 12 contest. Hilton juked long snapper Garrison Sanborn and found his path to the end zone largely unencumbered on what was easily Buffalo's worst special teams play of the season.

Hilton's score was the second return touchdown that the Bills have allowed in their last two games; Miami Dolphins kick returner Marcus Thigpen had a lengthy kick return for a score in last Thursday's 19-14 Bills win at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Clearly, special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven has his work cut out for him shoring up what is quickly becoming a weak area for the Bills.

Buffalo responded to the poor play with a Rian Lindell field goal on a drive featuring a 24-yard reception by T.J. Graham and a 23-yard run from C.J. Spiller. Indy now leads 7-3 with 4:28 remaining in the first quarter.
