Colts QB Andrew Luck does not hold back on praise for T.Y. Hilton

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had plenty of positive things to say when asked about the play of star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.

It’s been a great season both for members of the Indianapolis passing attack, with Luck throwing for 3,759 yards and 34 touchdowns while Hilton has 62 receptions for 986 yards and six scores.

And for anyone that’s watched the Colts play, the chemistry between the two players is more than obvious.

Here’s what Luck had to say about his productive receiver, courtesy of Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis:

“T.Y. does some things very special. He does some things that not many other people can do. So we saw some opportunities through film that we thought we could take advantage of. Once we got that first one, it was like, ‘Okay, yeah here we go, let’s get it.’ When T.Y.’s in the zone, he’s in the zone, man. It’s fun to play with him. It’s an honor to play with him, and I sincerely mean that.”

Despite a huge season from tight end Eric Ebron, there’s no doubt that Hilton is still the top playmaker in this Colts offense, and that was on full display when he racked up nine catches for 199 yards in the win over the Houston Texans.

That helped Frank Reich’s team stay firmly in the playoff race, and now it’s a matter of finishing the season strong.

Next up for the Colts is a home matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, with the New York Giants and Tennessee Titans on tap after that.
