Colts in midst of strong rally, narrow deficit to 41-31

Andrew Luck AP

If the Chiefs are going to win their first postseason game in almost 21 years, they are going to have sweat it out.

The Colts, who were in major trouble after falling behind 38-10 less than two minutes into the third quarter, have drawn to within 41-31 early in the fourth quarter in Saturday’s wild-card game at Lucas Oil Stadium.

It was an up-and-down third quarter for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who was picked twice by Kansas City’s Husain Abdullah, which led to 10 Chiefs points. However, Luck threw a pair of touchdowns in the third, leading three scoring drives lasting less than two minutes. His latest TD pass, a 12-yarder to tight end Coby Fleener, put Indianapolis within 10 points for the first time since early in the second quarter.

Injuries are a concern for the Chiefs, who have lost tailback Jamaal Charles for the game to a concussion. Moreover, cornerback Brandon Flowers and wideout Donnie Avery are both being tested for concussions, the club said.

    The problem playing Colts is NFL has “stories” like Luck they want to continue and refs will help.

    See the Bus finally getting a SB ring.

    If the chiefs somehow hold on to this game there’s no way this team can advance any farther with the way this defense is playing, but how it’s looking now it will be 8 straight playoff losses for the chiefs

    This is crazy. Hope chiefs hang on due to all these weird injuries.

    3rd string Rb trying to run the ball and pick up blitzes is going to be tough for KC.

    The Colts wouldn’t need such a large comeback if Luck hadn’t thrown 3 careless interceptions.

    But hey, why let facts get in the way of a good storyline.

    And down goes Davis!

    This is why Luck is the best young QB in the NFL. Despite having a terrible game early, he kept his head in it. Most young guys would have gone into a shell facing that kind of adversity. It’s not like this team is loaded with weapons either. Without Luck Colts are probably a 2-4 win team.

  15. denverfandownsouth says: Jan 4, 2014 7:37 PM

    Yes, but with manning they’d of had a first round bye

  16. polapea says: Jan 4, 2014 7:38 PM

    And cue the terrible clock management by Andy Reid.

  17. Brinke says: Jan 4, 2014 7:39 PM

    41-38……….epic fold.

  18. oldschoolnflman says: Jan 4, 2014 7:42 PM

    A fan would have ran on the field and murdered someone already (if we switched luck and the way he has played with tony romo playing the same game).

    Vincentbojackson …

    Insert Russell Wilson into your comment and it’s correct .. Keep talking about colts losing their top wr and struggling ..look at what Russell did without 3&4 of his starting linemen for a 8 game stretch in the middle if the season … Also add that they lost what expected to be their # 1 and #2 wr is S. Rice and Harvin … He still excelled and was the main reason his team won those games despite offensive line struggles …

    He never wavers and never gets too high or low , luck is a beast but also makes some extremely terrible decisions and gets bailed out by the fact that he doesn’t play good teams and his “team” finds a way to win ..

    Not saying I don’t like luck but half his “status ” is media driven and his stats are based mostly on his attempts .. IE getting a lot of yards but throwing nearly twice as others who are being compared and still less tds ..:

    I think the colts win but their defense is atrocious and playing a team without its best player . This is why home field is soo important that familiarity to the place and situation help extensively ..

    Good luck I’m rooting for luck just not sure about some of the clear best at his position
    And class crap theirs two guys equally as good of you ask me and what Russell has done with less offensively is remarkable ..

    Luck still likely lose
