Trindon Holliday Touchdown On Kickoff Return Helps Broncos Beat Bengals (VIDEO)

The NFL's shortest player came through in a big way for the Broncos in their 31-23 win over the Bengals.

Denver received the kickoff to open the second half but Trindon Holliday made sure Peyton Manning wouldn't have to step on the field just yet, returning the kickoff 105 yards for the touchdown. The 5'5 receiver burst right up the middle through a big hole and nearly went untouched as he gave the Broncos a 17-3 lead.

It was the longest kickoff return in Broncos history.

"It was an outside call, but I saw those guys, they were playing the outside, so I saw the hole to the inside and that was it," said Holliday after the game, via the Denver Post. "You have to be ready when they ask you."
