After a sluggish first half, the Indianapolis Colts’ offense came to life in the third quarter, thanks to wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.

With the Colts trailing the New Orleans Saints 27-0 on Sunday, quarterback Andrew Luck found Hilton wide open at midfield. Hilton cut back three times to elude Saints cornerback Jairus Byrd, before doing a front flip into the end zone to cap off an 87-yard touchdown.

Hilton followed up the score with another long touchdown, this time for 46-yards, to close out the third quarter.
