Key play: The chunk plays by T.Y. Hilton haven’t been as frequent in recent weeks but the second-year receiver showcased that elite speed on this scoring drive. With the Colts facing a third-and-four at their own 26-yard line, Hilton lined up in the right slot across from Jaguars cornerback Will Blackmon.

In doing so, Whalen got Jaguars cornerback Mike Harris off balance and that was enough to create separation for Luck to find his college teammate for the Colts final touchdown of the regular season.
