Trindon Holliday scored his second touchdown of the day for the Denver Broncos as he returned the second-half kickoff 104 yards.

Holliday made his presence felt earlier in the game against the Baltimore Ravens with a 90-yard punt return, but this gem may have actually been more impressive.

The 5'5" returner caught the ball in the right corner of the end zone before heading across the field and streaking up the far sideline virtually untouched. Holliday's speed makes him impossible to catch in the open field, and Baltimore's defenders were again caught flat-footed.


Twitter has exploded with conversation about Holliday's record-breaking play.

ESPN Stats and Info was quick to highlight Holliday's accomplishments:

 

Trindon Holliday now has the longest Punt Return TD AND longest Kickoff Return TD in NFL postseason history. #BALvsDEN

However, they are not just the longest returns in playoff history, as Holliday is also the first player to score on both return types in the same postseason game.

 

FROM ELIAS: Trindon Holliday is the 1st player with a Kickoff Return TD and Punt Return TD in the same game in NFL postseason history

Trey Wingo posted one of the most mind-blowing facts of the season and added to Holliday's mystique.

 

NOW would be a good time to point out that Trindon Holliday hasn't lost a game yet this season. 5-0 with Texans.. 11-0 with Denver

It would be surprising if Baltimore actually put any more kicks in Holliday's direction, especially considering he has accounted for 12 points already in the game.
