Trindon Holliday Returns 90-Yard Punt for Broncos' First Score

The Denver Broncos got off to a literal fast start in their divisional round showdown with the Baltimore Ravens.

Baltimore's opening possession resulted in a punt. As Peyton Manning and Denver's offense prepared to take the field, punt returner Trindon Holliday decided to instead take matters into his own hands.

Holliday fielded Sam Koch's punt and headed up the hash-marks along the right sideline. The Ravens had only one defender in that part of the field, and Holliday quickly made Baltimore pay for that mistake.

The 5'5" playmaker used his 4.34-second 40-yard dash speed to his advantage as he raced 90 yards for the score and gave Denver a 6-0 advantage.
