After putting up an 82-catch, 1,083-yard, 5-touchdown regular, then opening the playoffs with 13 catches for 224 yards and two touchdowns in the comeback win over the Chiefs, Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton knows the Patriots will key on him.

Both Hilton and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck are in their second seasons, and with veteran receiver Reggie Wayne going down early in the season, Hilton became Luck’s go-to guy. Luck looked for him on 138 of his 365 passes this season.

Hilton expects the Patriots to use as many coverages as possible to keep Luck from getting the ball to him.

“The main thing for me is just to stay focused and don’t get frustrated,” Hilton said. “They’re going to roll some coverages my way.”
