If grades would have been handed out after the first half of the game, the Indianapolis Colts would have received straight F’s across the entire board. With the second largest comeback in NFL playoff history ousting the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s quite amazing what a difference just 30 minutes can make.
The Kansas City Chiefs lost an eighth-straight postseason game on Saturday, losing 45-44 to the Indianapolis Colts after holding a 28-point lead in the third quarter.
Injuries slowed down the Kansas City Chiefs in the second half of the NFL season, but now they are much healthier as the playoffs approach.
Three seasons ago, Peyton Manning sat on the sidelines with an injury that many thought may end his career. The Indianapolis Colts drafted Andrew Luck out of Stanford and the rebuilding was about to begin. Little did anyone realize that the rebuilding would start immediately.
Just two weeks ago, the Kansas City Chiefs lost at home to the Indianapolis Colts in a game that sealed the AFC West team’s postseason fate. Can they flip that outcome on the road in the playoffs?
It’s hard to believe that the one thing possibly keeping Russell Wilson from being a top five draft pick was his height. Because Wilson is “only” 5-foot-11, NFL scouts including 2000 Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke believed that, “If (Wilson) was six-five, he’d probably be the number one pick in the draft.” Looks like he’s doing a great job of bucking conventional wisdom.
With the Colts and Broncos squaring off this week on Sunday Night Football, some are wondering if Indy, at home with a 4-2 record, can deal the juggernaut Broncos their very first loss of the season. Is this the week Denver falls?
Russell Wilson has shown he has top-tier quarterback skills, well beyond his ability to run.
While the Seahawks as a team looked good in the first half of the game, it was their special teams, specifically their inability to score touchdowns in the second half, that ended Seattle’s bid for a 5-0 start to the season as the Colts were able to win 34-28.
Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes and Donald Brown scored the go-ahead TD with 8:55 to go to lead the Indianapolis Colts past the Seattle Seahawks 34-28 on Sunday.
