Trindon Holliday Kickoff Return Touchdown: Broncos' 104-Yard TD Opens 2nd Half vs. Ravens (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The shortest player in the NFL is having a huge impact for the Denver Broncos in their playoff matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.

The 5' 5" return ace -- a track star during college years at LSU -- delivered a record-setting, 90-yard punt return touchdown the first time that he touched the ball in the first quarter, staking the Broncos to a 7-0 lead before Peyton Manning even stepped on the field.

After being held in check for the remainder of the wild first half, Holliday opened the second half with a 104-yard kickoff return touchdown. Once again, Holliday was hardly touched as he sprinted from one end of the field to the other. After catching the ball four yards deep in his own end zone, Holliday took the ball out and burst upfield, navigating the crowd in the center of the field. After mazing his way through the traffic, Holliday broke out to his left as he went 104 yards to score.

Holliday's second touchdown of the game put the Broncos back in front, 28-21, and earned him another spot in the NFL record books.
