National Football League playoff action begins on Saturday, January 4, 2014 when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 4:35 PM ET from Indianapolis, Indiana between these two AFC rivals. With the Colts riding a three-game win streak entering the playoffs, we will back them to win this game at home over the struggling Chiefs as they advance to the second round.
Indianapolis Colts: Headed for Divisional round
Entering the playoffs on a three-game win streak means that the Colts are hot at the right time of the year. During their win streak, the Colts have allowed just 20 points on defense. One of those wins came against the Chiefs by a score of 23-7 in week 16. The Colts have received a strong sophomore season from quarterback Andrew Luck, who threw 23 touchdown passes and cut his interceptions in half to nine. If the Colts stick to the game plan that has helped them win three straight, Saturday should be another win.
Kansas City Chiefs: Playoff loss will complete collapse
To say Kansas City has backed into the playoffs is an understatement. The Chiefs began the season 9-0, but finished on a 2-5 run, including losing two straight games. Their only two wins in that span came against lowly Oakland and Washington. The Chiefs dropped their season finale to the Chargers in overtime, which catapulted San Diego into the playoffs. Kansas City is trying to get completely healthy for Saturday’s game, but that might not even matter if they cannot stop Andrew Luck and co.
