T.Y. Hilton sets Colts playoff record with 224 yards and 2 TDs

Overcoming a 28-point third-quarter deficit, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck threw for 443 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions and scored on a fumble recovery as well.

Only three quarterbacks (Bernie Kosar, Drew Brees (twice) and Peyton Manning) have thrown for more yards in a playoff game in NFL history.

More than half of Luck's receiving yards went to T.Y. Hilton, who finished with 13 receptions for 224 yards and two scores on 18 targets.

Not only did Hilton exceed the club's previous playoff record of 221 receiving yards held by Reggie Wayne, his 224 yards is behind only Eric Moulds (240) and Anthony Carter (227) for third-most all-time. It was the eighth 200-yard game in the postseason in NFL history.

In his past two games, Hilton has a combined 24 receptions for 379 yards and two touchdowns.

Next week, the Colts will head on the road to face either the Broncos (if the Bengals win tomorrow) or the Patriots (if the Bengals lose tomorrow).
