Nyheim Hines, touchdown-scorin’ and backflippin’ machine

Nyheim Hines’ contributions to the Colts’ offense may be more sporadic than we’d like to see, but he is always a threat to make a big play, and so far this afternoon, he’s made two: a 22-yard touchdown catch and a 29-yard touchdown catch.

He showed off some impressive celebratory back-flipping after both scores.

The second score was an absolute dime from Philip Rivers:

Who knows, maybe in another life, Nyheim is a world-class gymnast. For an amateur, he’s got that floor routine looking pretty solid.

As the game stands early in the fourth quarter, Hines is Indianapolis’ leading receiver with 51 yards. Rivers is 19-27 for 215 yards and three touchdowns, and the Colts are on their way to improving to 5-2 on the year.
