COLTS WITH TWO FANTASTIC GRABS AMONG NFL’S TOP 100 PLAYS FROM 2012

Posted by Kevin Bowen on May 22, 2013 – 7:40 am

Beginning a little over two weeks ago, “NFL AM” started a countdown of the top 100 plays from the 2012 season. The morning show on NFL Network airs every weekday at 6 a.m. and this week will end with the top 50 plays left.

The Colts have already found themselves on the list twice with the entries below.

99. Hilton scores go-ahead touchdown

-During his stellar rookie campaign, it was Hilton’s speed that usually highlighted his touchdown catches. But in this instance, the 5-9 receiver showcased his leaping ability in out jumping a pair of Dolphins defensive backs for a 36-yard touchdown to give the Colts a 20-17 lead late in the third quarter, in a game that pitted two teams with 4-3 records in the thick of the AFC playoff picture.

81. Wayne doesn’t need two hands

-There was just something about those orange gloves on that early October afternoon. Wayne set a career-high with 13 catches for 212 yards with this one-handed snag among the highlights. On a third-and-six, Wayne got past All-Pro cornerback Charles Woodson and was able to locate the ball while extending his left hand to haul in Andrew Luck’s pass.
