T.Y. Hilton looked like the best player on the field on Saturday afternoon as he had one of his biggest games of the season.
T.Y. Hilton has had a hot-and-cold 2017 season as he’s dealt with a difficult quarterback situation. Hilton and Brissett haven’t always been on the same page this year, but when they have the Colts have looked like a totally different team.
In the Colts’ three wins this season, Hilton had gained 153, 177, and 175 receiving yards in each of those games. Hilton was looking forward to this week’s matchup against a Baltimore defense that was missing its best cornerback in Jimmy Smith.
Hilton was once again Indianapolis’ go-to guy as he led the team in targets (12), receptions (6), and receiving yards (100).

It’s been a frustrating year for just about everyone in Indianapolis, and that includes the Colts’ superstar wide receiver.
This year’s Pro Bowl participants were announced this week, and Hilton was left off of the roster for the first time since 2013. Hilton has overcome injuries at the quarterback position over the past three seasons to put up some big numbers, but it wasn’t enough to punch his ticket to the Pro Bowl this season.
T.Y. Hilton took out his frustration on the Baltimore secondary, but it wasn’t enough to lead Indianapolis to victory.
