T.Y. Hilton catches a pass for a touchdown Sunday against Buffalo. Hilton also had a punt return for a TD as the Colts beat the Bills 20-13.

Rookie receiver leads Colts

INDIANAPOLIS – T.Y. Hilton scored on a 75-yard punt return and caught an 8-yard TD pass Sunday, leading the Indianapolis Colts to a 20-13 victory over Buffalo.

He is the first player in franchise history to score both ways in the same game – and on a sluggish day for Indianapolis (7-4), the rookie receiver provided the needed spark.

Hilton made two nifty moves to get free on the return, then caught the pass from Andrew Luck in the back of the end zone. Luck was 20 of 37 for 240 yards with one TD and one interception.

Buffalo (4-7) finally ended its red-zone drought with 11:30 left in the game with a 1-yard TD pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Lee Smith to make it 20-13. But the Bills got no closer.
