AFC Notes: Colts, Jaguars, Texans


Colts WR T.Y. Hilton told reporters that it was good to be back and to help the offense. 

“It was fun, man,” Hilton said, via “The crowd had the energy — it was a little emotional running out of the tunnel. Just hearing those fans, man, makes it all worth it. And then being in the locker room with this team, these group of guys is unbelievable, and just the energy, the juice, that I bring to them, you [saw] it today. They just feed off my energy; me just being out there just brings so [many] smiles, so much enthusiasm to this team, and I just mean so much to them. So I’m glad I did it.”

“We just stayed together, there was ups and downs,” Lawrence told Melanie Collins of CBS. “That’s what we’re all learning. We got a young team… you’re going to have to play a complete game to win, and we did that today. We knew if we got another chance, we were going to go win the game. I think that confidence is starting to build within our locker room.”
