    Trindon Holliday, panting after his 90-yard TD return.

    Holliday, a former NCAA 100-meter track champion, returned a punt after Baltimore’s failed opening possession 90 yards for a touchdown – the longest postseason punt return in NFL history.

    It was first postseason punt return touchdown in Broncos history. The Broncos claimed Holliday off waivers in October when he was released by Houston, and he has provided plenty of excitement since.
