Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton said after Saturday's victory that the clown mask he wore into NRG Stadium won't make the trip with his team to Arrowhead Stadium for the next round.

Hilton wore the clown mask in response to comments made by Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who called the receiver a "clown" for saying NRG Stadium was his "second home."

The Eagles broke out dog masks to embrace their underdog status during last season's Super Bowl run, but Hilton said he didn't plan to make a similar statement with his clown mask.

"It might be the lucky charm, but nah, it's done," Hilton said. according to NFL.com. "It's retired after today. ... The mask is done after today. It might stay in Houston, or it might go back. I don't know yet."

The mask apparently made the trip back with him, as he tweeted a photo of one of his two children wearing it Sunday.
