Colts punter Pat McAfee blows up Denver’s Trindon Holliday on a return (Video)

Indianapolis punter and kickoff specialist Pat McAfee is a big dude. He's 6-1, 233 pounds. So, really, he wasn't a bad last line of defense when Denver's Trindon Holliday broke a long return down the sideline.

Holliday is 5-5, and 170 pounds (170? Who's buying that? Maybe with lead shoes he weighs 170). When he met McAfee on the sideline, he's really not supposed to win that battle.

And did he ever lose that one.

You don't see a position player get blasted by a punter like that very often, which is why NBC showed the replay over and over. And Holliday did get hit pretty hard, as he was sent flying out of bounds.

I guess this should teach returners a lesson: You do not mess with Pat McAfee.
