Still kudos to coach Andy Reid for getting them to this point, a place few would have expected at the beginning of the season.

The Colts too should be commended as the general opinion was they would take a step back this season, instead they won the division(although almost by default).

Kansas City

The Chiefs have made the playoffs but nobody can be sure just what team we are going to see on Saturday: The one that dominated for 9 weeks or the one that went 2-5 thereafter.

As mentioned previously these teams met recently and the Colts kind of dominated. The only good thing to happen for Kansas City in that game is that they had bunch of sucess running the ball with Jamaal Charles.

They are going to need to be able to do that again because if there is one thing we know about QB Alex Smith is that he is not capable of doing it on his own and even though he and WR Dwayne Bowe never really clicked, it is questionable as to whether he will even be available at this point.

Another question is what has happened to the Chiefs defense. Over the first 9 weeks they did not give up more than 17 points to any of their opponents. Over the last 7 weeks they have held opponents below that total only once.

Injuries were a factor but they are mostly healthy now so they better start playing better or they will be starting their offseason shortly

Indianapolis

The Colts are back in the postseason after a roller coaster regular season.

Early on they showed they can beat anybody in the league handing losses to Seattle and San Francisco, maybe the two best teams in the league…but they also got smacked down by the Rams at home, a confusing result at the time which has been made more so by the way they played down the stretch winning three in a row including beating Kansas City.

Though some expected a sophomore slump, QB Andrew Luck’s numbers somewhat improved this year.

He completed a higher percentage of passes and significantly cut down on turnovers while still showing some of the magic he did as a rookie, though the team did not need it as often.

The running game is still garbage as midseason acquisition Trent Richardson has continued to be a bust but Luck has shown that he can overcome.

How well this team does in the playoffs will be squarely on the defense which has handled Peyton Manning but made Kellen Clemens look like and All-Pro..

Spread Pick: Indianapolis -2.5
O/U Pick: Over
Score Prediction: Indianapolis 27 – Kansas City 21
