It took Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines six games to score his second touchdown of the season after scoring his first in the Colts’ Week 1 win over Jacksonville. It didn’t take him very long to score his third.
With just over a minute left in the second quarter, Colts quarterback Philip Rivers found Hines once again for a 29-yard touchdown pass for his second score against the Detroit Lions, which gave Indianapolis a 20-7 lead with seconds left in the second quarter.
The Colts running back again busted out the cartwheel celebration:

Hines’ second touchdown of the day came not long after his first, which was a 22-yard pass from Rivers early in the second quarter.
A second touchdown for the 23-year-old running back also meant that second straight cartwheel celebration, showing that the NC State product is not only good at football but could also probably succeed as a gymnast.
If Hines scoring touchdowns means fans seeing more of his equally jaw-dropping celebrations, then they certainly are hoping Rivers targets the third-year pro with more passes as the season continues. The Colts are looking to move to 5-2 on the season.
