T.Y. Hilton Fakes Being Down To Score A TD

In a great example of gamesmanship that falls just within ethical boundaries, T.Y. Hilton took a dive to avoid being tackled on a long third-quarter catch, and then decided it was best to take his time getting up. It was a great call, because by playing dead, Texans safety Andre Hal took him for a non-threat and strolled right past him, allowing Hilton to get back up untouched and waltz into the end zone to extend the Colts’ lead.


I know a battle between Jacoby Brissett and Tom Savage may not feel like a pro football game, but Hal needs to realize that nobody here is playing by college rules.
