Denver's Trindon Holliday has set an NFL playoff record with the 90-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter of Saturday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Holliday caught the punt and was barely touched as he began working his way down a sideline. Punter Sam Koch also barely touched Holliday just before he reached the end zone, where a host of Broncos ran to greet him.

Former Ravens returner Jermaine Lewis held the playoff punt return record of 88 yards against Pittsburgh on Jan. 20, 2002.

Holliday was assigned to the Broncos through waivers when he was let go by Houston in October.

A former track star at LSU, Holliday returned a kickoff 105 yards for a score at Cincinnati. The next week he scored on a punt return at Carolina.
