It seems like it was only four months ago the season started. And just like that, it could all be coming to an end this weekend.
The Colts and Chiefs will kick off the 2013-2014 NFL Playoffs in Indianapolis Saturday afternoon. A rematch from two weeks ago, it's an intriguing contest between teams with identical records but vastly different stories.
The 2013 Colts are like a delicious Oreo Cookie™: a dominant start and a dominant finish are the cookies while their disastrous mid-season performance is the gooey hydrogenated-fat-center. Will the Colts twist-and-dunk on Saturday? Or ... I have no clue how to continue this analogy. Sorry.
For the Chiefs, the story is this: they are lucky the season is only 17 weeks/16 games long. Kansas City started out strong, winning their first-nine games of the season, but finished with a dismal 2-5 record to close out the season. While one of those losses came courtesy of their backups, the point remains: the Chiefs 9-0 record told us more about who the Chiefs played those first nine games than it told us about the Chiefs.
Will the Colts be able to beat a team they dominated just two weeks ago? Or will Alex Smith and the Chiefs learn from their mistakes and put an end to Andrew Luck's season? We'll find out Saturday on NBC! (Or you could just read the rest of this article and find out now, I guess)no comments
