Trindon Holliday has played his way into the record books this afternoon in Denver. If you haven’t heard by now, during the game against the Ravens, after returning a punt 90 yards for a TD, he became the only player in postseason history to run a kickoff back for a TD, and a punt in the same game. He has kept his team in the game as the Ravens have scored 14 points of their own off of Manning turnovers.

Here is Holliday’s punt return:

Now, to finish off Holliday’s record setting day, is his 104 yard kickoff return:

The scary part of both of those plays is the ease that Holliday got through everybody. Look at both of those plays, was there ever a point where he had to break a bunch of tackles? It didn’t look like it. He pretty much made one move, and was off to the races. The Ravens will be well served not to kick it hear Holliday anymore for the rest of this one.
