The Denver Broncos would very much like to thank the Houston Texans for waiving return man Trindon Holliday after Week 5 of the 2012 NFL season. The Broncos picked up the third-year man from LSU, and they haven’t lost a game since. In fact, Holliday was 5-0 with the Texans, and 11-0 with the Broncos in the regular season. That’s an interesting trivia note, but when the Broncos kicked things off against the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs, Holliday showed pretty quickly that he’s more than just a guy who hangs around while his team picks up victories. The Ravens got the ball to start, and had to punt after five plays from their own 38-yard line. Rookie punter Justin Tucker booted the ball down to the Denver 10-yard line, whereupon Holliday ran it all the way back, 90 yards, for a touchdown. He was helped greatly by Baltimore’s seeming resistance to having any of their special teams tacklers on the defensive left side of the field. Holliday had one punt return and one kick return each for touchdowns in the regular season.
