What a way to begin the first week of the NFL playoffs.
The Chiefs, led by QB Alex Smith and his best game ever with the team (30-46, 378 yds. 4 TDs) completely dominated the Colts in the first half with the score of 31-10.
The Chiefs were assisted heavily by their receiving crew in Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery (combined for 9 rec. 229 yds. 2 TDs) and played well despite the fact that Kansas City lost their best offensive weapon in RB Jamaal Charles. Charles left the game and headed to the locker room due to a concussion six plays into the first quarter. Jamaal Charles was forced not to return.
As the second half began, the Indianapolis Colts made their adjustments and was a totally different team. Andrew Luck threw 4 second-half touchdowns with receiver T.Y. Hilton being an impact on the receiving end the entire game (13 rec. 224 yds. 2 TDs). The Colts shocked the Chiefs in the end with the final score of 45-44.
The Colts’ victory marks Andrew Luck’s first-ever career playoff win sending Indianapolis to the divisional round against either the Denver Broncos or the New England Patriots.
