Chiefs’ offense off to hot start in Indianapolis

Alex Smith AP

The Chiefs’ offense is rolling in Indianapolis.

Donnie Avery’s 79-yard TD reception from Alex Smith has given the Colts a 17-7 early second-quarter lead in Saturday’s wild-card meeting.

Smith has completed 7-of-13 passes for 176 yards and a pair of scores in just three drives.

The Chiefs are currently playing without tailback Jamaal Charles, who is being tested for a concussion. His return to the lineup has been termed questionable by the Chiefs.

The Chiefs scored first on Saturday, with Dwayne Bowe hauling in a six-yard touchdown from Alex Smith on Kansas City’s first drive.

The Colts would respond with a touchdown of their own, with Andrew Luck hitting T.Y. Hilton for a 10-yard score to even things up.

Then, the Chiefs struck again, with Ryan Succop’s 19-yard field goal giving Kansas City the 10-7 edge late in the first quarter. The field goal was set up by Dwayne Bowe’s 63-yard reception.

Then, after a Colts’ punt, the Chiefs’ offense came up with an even bigger play to give their team a two-score lead.

    This is crazy!

    I knew all along Browns got the better end of the Trent Richardson trade. With Josh Gordon at WR they should consider the passing attack. I want Alex Smith to do good. Let’s go Chiefs

    24-7 with 13:00 to go in the 2nd. That’s some mighty fine “game management” by Alex Smith.

    Colts the lead?

    How’s that MONSTER TRADE working out for you, Mr. Irsay?

    If the colts sign two healthy free agent corners at halftime they got a shot.

    Smith is channeling his inner Favre. Game Manager my butt

    Alex Smith is the man! I always liked him. He never had the fair chance in San Francisco UNTIL Harbaugh took over. Such an athlete, and probably the smartest guy on the field also. Wish we still had him around in SF. Go KC / Alex Smith!

    Yeah man I hate that they use that term with him. He’s just smart with the ball and that’s why he has one of the highest win percentages and lowest interceptions totals in the NFL since 2011

    damn i should have bet more on kc darn it

    Niners should have kept smith. He’s twice the passer kaepernick is right now.

  17. mikenfceast says: Jan 4, 2014 5:46 PM

    Luckily its still early, Disappointing when the first playoff game is a blowout. Perhaps the Colts regroup after the half. Hmm Smith just ran 3 of the last 4 plays? Why is the QB running.

  18. davikes says: Jan 4, 2014 5:47 PM

    If the Chiefs win and the Niners lose, somebody will have some crow to eat.

  19. brudog says: Jan 4, 2014 5:48 PM

    Once again, Smith is showing that the 49ers traded the wrong QB

    Chiefs moving the ball with ease.

    Some faders fans know nothing about football.

    House of cards right?

    Listen, I am a lifelong Chiefs fan but I’m telling you Luck can still come back from this deficit. I’m not celebrating till the games over.

  22. rabbi187 says: Jan 4, 2014 5:59 PM

    Good thing the game wasn’t blacked out in Idie so the entire city can see what trash their team is…

    Go chiefs

  25. nitzenbaum - not yer momma's 'skins fan says: Jan 4, 2014 6:11 PM

    Zero balance on offense. Luck choking having no Wayne so game over.

  26. jayhawk6 says: Jan 4, 2014 6:14 PM

    Has anybody heard from Mr. Irsay’s Twitter account?

  27. FinFan68 says: Jan 4, 2014 6:19 PM

    For some reason, I want the Chiefs and 49ers to go at it in the SB. Alex Smith can raise the Lombardi, look over at Harbaugh, and kiss his bicep and laugh.

  28. rasta028 says: Jan 4, 2014 6:24 PM

    Haha another INT By CHUCK A LUCK!

  29. coolherc says: Jan 4, 2014 6:27 PM

    Someome please tell me again why people were surprised the Colts had trouble selling out their playoff game?

  30. packerbackernj says: Jan 4, 2014 6:33 PM

    Irsay’s going to tie one on tonight and ramble incoherently on twitter.
