Injured teammate Wayne encouraged Hilton to make plays

Monday, November 04, 2013 03:08 pm
Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton said injured Indianapolis Colts teammate Reggie Wayne looked him in the eye Sunday night and said, "You owe me one, man." Looks like Hilton paid up.Hilton caught three touchdown passes in the final minutes of the Indianapolis Colts' 27-24 comeback win over the Houston Texans.

Hilton talked with the media in a conference call Monday about the night and other topics.

Here's a transcript of the conversation:“Andrew (Luck) did a great job getting me the ball. We went in at halftime, made some adjustments. The O-line really stepped up. It was just a team win and I was able to make the plays for my team and help us win.”“Oh yeah, it builds a lot of confidence with us, especially with us coming back from the deficit we had on the road. This team, we play 60 minutes, one play at a time, we don't judge. That's what we did last night. We also have a brilliant quarterback who knows what he's doing. We go over this situation all the time in practice and he seems to find a way to come through.”“Yeah, we talked before the game, we talked during the game, we talked at halftime. At halftime, he looked me in the eyes and told me, 'You owe me one, man. Go out there and do what you do best, just go out there and have fun.' Once I hit the second half, I was able to get it going and after the game he said, 'Now that's what I'm talking about. That's what I'm talking about.' We just kind of took that moment in.”“I expected that going in. They had (Johnathan) Joseph following me the whole game. We made adjustments in terms of getting the ball in the running downs. They were sticking me man-to-man and trying to help on third downs. Andrew was able to get me the ball on other downs and we were able to make them pay.”“I don't know, I really don't know. But it was a division game and it was one we had to get. They're the defending division champs and we had to give them everything we had to get the win.”“It was very strange, very weird. And it showed in the first half that we weren't the same without him. But in the second half, we picked it up and guys stepped up and made plays.”“Oh, not at all. We're a family here and we take everybody in. That's our motto, we're a family. We put all our chips in and we just respect one another, no matter what it is. We all respect each other and it shows on the field.”“Oh yeah, most definitely. We take the good with the bad. No matter what, next play in. That's what we've got to do. We know they gave us their best punch in the first half. We're a resilient team and we responded in the second half by throwing our punches. As long as we continue to keep grinding and stay focused, we should be alright.”“Yeah, it kind of did. I don't know what it is, I always seem to drop the ball to get me going. I don't know why I always seem to do that, but I've got to stop. That's going to hurt us.”“Going forward, I know I may face some double or triple teams, probably in the weeks coming up. But I got a lot of faith and a lot of trust in those guys to make the plays. Griff had a big catch on third down and (Coby) Fleener made a great catch on the two-point conversion. So I feel like we'll continue to step up and continue to play as a group and we should be good.”
