Andrew Luck’s Massive Playoff Comeback | Colts vs. Chiefs | 2013 AFC Wild Card | NFL Full Game

Andrew Luck’s Massive Playoff Comeback | Colts vs. Chiefs | 2013 AFC Wild Card | NFL Full Game


>>AS WE GET SET FOR THE FIFTH-SEED KANSAS CITY CHIEFS TAKING ON THE HOME TEAM, THE FOURTH-SEEDED INDIANAPOLIS COLTS. KANSAS CITY HAS WON THE TOSS, AS YOU LOOK AT CHUCK PAGANO. THIS IS HIS FIRST FULL YEAR ON THE SIDELINES AFTER BATTLING LEUKEMIA LAST SEASON. AND ANDY REID TRYING TO GET HIS TEAM AND BREAK THIS PLAYOFF DROUGHT. ALEX SMITH, THE QUARTERBACK FOR KANSAS CITY, WILL GET HIS HANDS ON THE BALL FIRST, AS THE CHIEFS SET AN NFL RECORD WITH 29.9-YARD AVERAGE PER KICKOFF RETURN. THEIR SPECIAL TEAMS HAVE BEEN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT — AS QUINTIN DEMPS TAKES IT OUT, BUT HE GETS NO FURTHER THAN THE 16 OR 17-YARD LINE. AND THAT IS WHERE ALEX SMITH AND THE CHIEFS’ OFFENSE WILL SET UP. IT WAS NOT A STANDOUT GAME FOR ALEX SMITH A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AT HOME AT ARROWHEAD. THE CHIEFS TURNED IT OVER FOUR TIMES, AND SMITH WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THREE OF THOSE TURNOVERS. AND HE BEGINS ON THE GROUND WITH JAMAAL CHARLES. AND THE LEAGUE-MVP CANDIDATE GETS SOME GOOD YARDAGE BEFORE HE’S BROUGHT DOWN BY CORY REDDING ALONG THE COLTS’ FRONT.>>YEAH, I THINK A CENTRAL THEME THROUGHOUT THIS ENTIRE GAME, DAN, FOR THE COLTS’ DEFENSE IS GONNA BE IDENTIFYING WHERE JAMAAL CHARLES IS. HE’LL LINE UP AT TAILBACK. HE’LL LINE UP OUT WIDE. WHAT DID THEY SAY ALL WEEK? IT’S, “WHERE’S WALDO?” LOCATE HIM AND NEUTRALIZE HIM.>>ANDY REID SAYS HE’S GONNA HAVE A LONG SATURDAY NIGHT BECAUSE HE’S GONNA GET A LOT OF ACTION HERE TODAY. ON SECOND DOWN AND 5, THEY GIVE IT TO CHARLES, AND CHARLES GOES AHEAD FOR THE FIRST DOWN. JAMAAL CHARLES HAS ACCOUNTED FOR MORE THAN A THIRD OF THE KANSAS CITY OFFENSE THIS SEASON.>>ANDY REID CALLED HIM “DIRTY TOUGH.” WATCH THE LEFT TACKLE HERE, BRANDEN ALBERT, GET OUT ON THE LINEBACKER. PUSHES FREEMAN OUT. AND WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT A 198-POUND TAILBACK BEING DIRTY TOUGH, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? IT MEANS HE CAN DROP THE PAD LEVEL, LIKE YOU SEE RIGHT THERE. HE’LL PASS-PROTECT. DAN, HE’LL DO ALL THE DIRTY JOBS THAT EARNS THE RESPECT OF HIS TEAMMATES.>>THIS OPENING DRIVE LOOKING VERY SIMILAR TO THE ONE A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO WHERE THE CHIEFS GOT THEIR ONLY SCORE OF THE GAME ON THE OPENING DRIVE. AND TO THE AIR FOR THE FIRST TIME, ALEX SMITH GOES FOR ANOTHER FIRST DOWN — TO DWAYNE BOWE, THAT GOOD FOR A GAIN OF 12. VONTAE DAVIS ON THE COVERAGE FOR INDIANAPOLIS.>>REMEMBER, VONTAE DAVIS IS COMING OFF A GROIN INJURY, AND THEY’RE GONNA TEST HIM EARLY. BOWE DOES A NICE JOB TAKING IT UP THE FIELD AND THEN BACK UNDER. AND I WOULD EXPECT TO SEE HIM CHALLENGED EARLY AND OFTEN AND SEE IF THAT GROIN HOLDS UP.>>BOWE HAD TO LEAVE THE GAME WITH A CONCUSSION AGAINST THE COLTS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, BUT BACK HERE FOR THE PLAYOFFS, AS KNILE DAVIS IS THE LONE SET BACK IN NOW BEHIND ALEX SMITH ON FIRST AND 10. AND THE FAKE TO DAVIS. AND SMITH, WHO CAN RUN WELL, INSTEAD GETS RID OF IT FOR A FEW YARDS TO DAVIS FOR THE COMPLETION FOR A GAIN OF 3. SO, ON SECOND AND 6 FROM THEIR OWN 45. SMITH FEELS THE PRESSURE FROM ANTOINE BETHEA AND ESCAPES IT. AND THERE’S THE MOBILITY FOR ALEX SMITH, WHO HAS AN AVERAGE CARRY 5.7 YARDS THIS SEASON. THAT WAS A GAIN OF 15.>>THIS IS CLASSIC ALEX SMITH. FIRST OF ALL, McCLUSTER WAS WIDE OPEN OVER THE MIDDLE, BUT HE DOESN’T SEE HIM, AND HE’S GONNA USE HIS ATHLETIC ABILITY. LOOK AT McCLUSTER. NOBODY ANYWHERE NEAR HIM. SMITH PULLS IT DOWN. PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE, DANNY, LIKE YOU WERE SAYING — AT UTAH, UNDER URBAN MEYER, THIS GUY WAS AN ATHLETE. RUN A 4.7 40. HE’S PRETTY GOOD WITH THOSE LEGS.>>KANSAS CITY MARCHING IT DOWN THE FIELD. THEY’RE AT THE COLT 39. AND THEY GIVE IT BACK TO CHARLES, WHO DARTS HIS WAY FOR MORE GOOD YARDAGE. GAIN OF 7 FOR CHARLES, WHO’S DOWN ON THE TURF. JAMAAL CHARLES HAS MADE HIS WAY OFF THE FIELD AFTER THE GAIN OF 7, GOING THROUGH WHAT APPEARS TO BE CONCUSSION PROTOCOL. KNILE DAVIS NOW IN THE BACKFIELD FOR THE CHIEFS. AND SMITH WITH A PITCH TO DAVIS.>>HOW ABOUT THAT?>>AS WE GO BACK TO THE INJURY OF CHARLES, FROM WHAT WE SAW HERE, MIKE, WE REALLY COULDN’T DETECT ANYTHING SPECIFIC.>>I THINK AT THE END. RIGHT THERE. 61, JERIS PENDLETON, IS A 334-POUND DEFENSIVE TACKLE. HE GETS HIM UP HIGH, AND THEN HIS HEAD BOUNCES OFF THE TURF. AND AGAIN, WE’RE NOT GONNA SPECULATE, BUT WHAT YOU SAW ON THE SIDELINE WAS CONCUSSION PROTOCOL.>>KNILE DAVIS, WHO GOT THE START LAST WEEK AS THE CHIEFS RESTED THEIR ENTIRE LINEUP, VIRTUALLY, GOT THE FIRST DOWN. AND THEN THEY GET IT OUT TO DEXTER McCLUSTER, A PRO BOWL PUNT-RETURN MAN WHO’S GETTING MORE ACTIVE ON THE OFFENSE FOR KANSAS CITY.>>SOON AS KNILE DAVIS CAME IN THE GAME, THEY WENT PISTOL. THEN THEY GO WITH A CREATIVE PLAY TO McCLUSTER. AND, DAN, REMEMBER IN THE SUMMER, CHRIS AULT, THE FORMER COACH AT NEVADA AND KIND OF THE FATHER OF THE PISTOL OFFENSE, HE WORKED WITH ALEX SMITH THIS SUMMER, INSTALLING THE PISTOL FOR JUST THIS SITUATION.>>SECOND AND 5. AGAIN, KANSAS CITY’S OPENING DRIVE. CHARLES STILL ON THE SIDELINE. DAVIS TRYING TO PICK A HOLE. AFTER NOTHING’S DOING THERE, JUST BULLS HIS WAY CLOSE TO THE FIRST DOWN BEFORE GREG TOLER FINALLY WRESTLES HIM DOWN.>>YOU KNOW, I GOT A CHANCE TO WATCH A LOT OF KNILE DAVIS IN COLLEGE. HE HAD 13 FUMBLES IN 381 TOUCHES AT ARKANSAS, SO THERE WERE TWO KNOCKS ON HIM — ONE WAS THE FUMBLING AND TWO WAS THE LACK OF ABILITY TO STAY ON THE FIELD. HE NEVER FINISHED A SEASON. SO IT WAS DURABILITY AND FUMBLING. THE CHIEFS TOOK HIM IN THE THIRD ROUND BECAUSE, DAN, HE’S 230 POUNDS, HE RUNS 4.4, AND HE’S REALLY GIFTED.>>YOU CAN SEE CHARLES UP AND TRYING TO GET THE COBWEBS OUT. THEY’VE COME OUT TO MEASURE FOR THE FIRST DOWN. AND, MAN, IS THAT CLOSE. THEY’RE GOING TO GIVE IT TO HIM. SO KANSAS CITY’S DRIVE HERE CONTINUES DOWN JUST OUTSIDE THE COLTS’ 16 — AND CHARLES BEING WALKED AROUND THE SIDELINE. AS DAVIS, WHO GOT HIS FIRST CAREER START IN FOR JAMAAL CHARLES LAST WEEK WHEN HE RESTED. THEY’RE GONNA TAKE HIM TO THE LOCKER ROOM AS WE GET SET FOR THE 10th PLAY OF THIS DRIVE. TO THE RIGHT OF SMITH IS DEXTER McCLUSTER. AND SMITH GOES TO HIM OUT OF THE BACKFIELD FOR ANOTHER GOOD GAIN. JERRELL FREEMAN ON THE COVERAGE OF McCLUSTER.>>IT’S A GOOD THING THAT BALL CAME OUT QUICKLY, ‘CAUSE MATHIS WITH THE SPIN MOVE UP TOP WOULD HAVE HAD A BIG HIT ON HIM. REALLY GOOD TIMING. McCLUSTER DOING A NICE JOB REGARDLESS WHERE THEY LINE HIM UP.>>THAT’LL BRING UP SECOND DOWN AND SHORT FROM THE 9. AND THEY GIVE IT TO DAVIS. LOOKING FOR A HOLE AND THE FIRST DOWN. AND IT APPEARS HE GOT IT. KAVELL CONNER ON THE STOP FOR THE COLTS. AND THEY DO GIVE HIM THE FIRST DOWN, SO FIRST AND GOAL FOR KANSAS CITY ON THIS IMPRESSIVE OPENING DRIVE. AGAIN, THE LAST FEW PLAYS WITHOUT THE SERVICES OF JAMAAL CHARLES, WHO’S BEEN TAKEN TO THE LOCKER ROOM. AND CHUCK PAGANO CALLED JAMAAL CHARLES PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE. THAT’S HOW HE’S BEEN REFERRING TO HIM. AND YOU ASK ANY COACH ON THE COLTS’ SIDE OF THE FIELD — AND, REALLY, ON KANSAS CITY’S SIDE OF THE FIELD — “WHO’S THE KEY PLAYER IN THIS GAME?” EVERYBODY INSTANTLY WENT TO JAMAAL CHARLES. SO HE IS NOT A FACTOR RIGHT NOW. SMITH TO THE END ZONE. JUST OUT OF THE OUTSTRETCHED ARMS OF JUNIOR HEMINGWAY. SECOND AND GOAL. DARIUS BUTLER ON THE COVERAGE.>>I THOUGHT HE HAD A CHANCE TO MAKE A PLAY THERE. THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FIELD GOALS AND TOUCHDOWNS. LITTLE OUT-AND-UP — AND A HOLD. BALL’S IN THE AIR. I THINK THAT’S GOT TO BE CALLED. THAT’S A GOOD MOVE BY HEMINGWAY AND CLEARLY A HOLD BY BUTLER.>>SECOND AND GOAL FROM THE 6. AS DWAYNE BOWE IN MOTION TO THE RIGHT. PLAY-ACTION FAKE. SMITH LOOKING LEFT. GOING TO THE END ZONE. AND HE CANNOT CONNECT WITH DONNIE AVERY. THIRD AND GOAL. SO THE COLTS’ FANS APPRECIATING THE WAY THE DEFENSE HAS STEPPED UP HERE. THE FIRST THIRD-DOWN TRY, IT’LL BE. AND, AGAIN, IT’LL COME FROM THE 6. THIRD AND GOAL. DAVIS AND McCLUSTER. McCLUSTER IN MOTION TO THE LEFT. SMITH TO THE END ZONE. AND HE’S GOT DWAYNE BOWE FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. SO ON THIRD AND GOAL, SMITH GETS DWAYNE BOWE TO OPEN UP THE SCORING IN THE NFL PLAYOFFS.>>THAT’S A CASE OF BIG BODY WINS. HERE HE IS ON BUTLER. HIS BIG BODY WALLS OFF THE DEFENDER. AS LONG AS THAT THROW IS ON BODY, THEN BOWE SHOULD WIN THAT EVERY TIME.>>IN HIS ONLY OTHER PLAYOFF GAME, BOWE WAS HELD WITHOUT A CATCH. AND SO NOW IT’S RYAN SUCCOP TO TRY TO MAKE IT 7-0, KANSAS CITY. ALMOST MIDWAY THROUGH THE FIRST QUARTER. SO IT’S AN IMPRESSIVE OPENING DRIVE. LaVON BRAZILL AWAITING THE KICK FROM RYAN SUCCOP. 7-0, KANSAS CITY. TRYING TO BREAK A SEVEN-GAME PLAYOFF LOSING STREAK WHICH DATES BACK 20 YEARS. HERE COMES BRAZILL OUT FOR THE COLTS. AND A GOOD RETURN FOR HIM ACROSS THE 25-YARD LINE. HERE IN THE GREAT CITY OF INDIANAPOLIS. THE COLTS BEGIN THEIR FIRST DRIVE WITH A PASS COMPLETE TO T.Y. HILTON FOR THE FIRST DOWN. SO ANDREW LUCK — WE WERE TOLD BY PAGANO AND THE STAFF, LIKE THE LAST THREE GAMES OF THE COLTS’ REGULAR SEASON, THEY’RE GONNA DO THIS HURRY-UP. AND LUCK TO THE AIR RIGHT AWAY, AGAIN TO HILTON. HILTON, THE REAL KEY PLAYER FOR INDIANAPOLIS AS THEY WERE DECIMATED BY INJURIES ON OFFENSE, NONE MORE COSTLY THAN REGGIE WAYNE, WHO TORE HIS ACL IN MIDSEASON, AND T.Y. HILTON IS THE MAN THAT STEPPED UP THE MOST FOR THE COLTS’ OFFENSE.>>YEAH, AND THEY’RE TRYING TO GET HIM ACTIVELY INVOLVED EARLY. BOTH THROWS, FIRST POSSESSION, TO NUMBER 13.>>ON SECOND AND 5. SEE HOW QUIET IT GETS.>>[ LAUGHS ] THIS IS A CROWD USED TO PEYTON MANNING, USED TO RESPECTING THE OFFENSIVE QUARTERBACK.>>SO HE CAN CALL OUT HIS SIGNALS AND AUDIBLES. SECOND AND 5. HE GOES TO HILTON AGAIN. 3 FOR 3, AND HILTON BREAKS LOOSE FOR A HUGE GAIN DEEP INTO CHIEFS TERRITORY BEFORE HE’S PUSHED OUT OF BOUNDS BY KENDRICK LEWIS. A GAIN OF 24 FOR T.Y.>>KANSAS CITY IS KNOWN FOR MAN COVERAGE. LOOK HOW FAR DUNTA ROBINSON, 21, HAS TO COME TO COVER THAT CROSSING ROUTE. SO WHEN YOU PLAY A TEAM THAT’S HEAVY MAN, THAT’S ONE OF THE MAN BREAKERS RIGHT THERE — A TON OF CROSSING ROUTES.>>HILTON IN HIS SECOND YEAR. OVER 1,000 YARDS THIS SEASON FOR THE FIRST TIME. LUCK’S GONE TO HIM EVERY TIME. THIS TIME HE GOES TO LaVON BRAZILL. AND THIS TIME THE CHIEFS WERE THERE TO BRING HIM DOWN. HUSAIN ABDULLAH ON THE STOP OF BRAZILL. ANDREW LUCK… [ CROWD BOOING ] …SET AN NFL PASSING RECORD THIS YEAR — AS WE LOOK AT BRAZILL. THIS IS WHAT THE FANS REACTED TO…>>IT WASN’T ON THE FACE MASK.>>…AS DONTARI POE TOOK A GRAB THERE OF BRAZILL. SO NO GAIN, SECOND DOWN AND 10. AND LUCK TO THE AIR ON THE OTHER SIDE. AND THAT’S COMPLETE TO COBY FLEENER FOR A FIRST DOWN. ERIC BERRY ON THE COVERAGE. GAIN OF 18 FOR FLEENER, LUCK’S TARGET AT STANFORD AS WELL.>>YEAH, THIS IS A GREAT MATCHUP. ALL-PRO SAFETY ERIC BERRY, ONE-ON-ONE, NO HELP. AND I THINK LUCK WILL TAKE THAT EVERY SINGLE TIME. PRESNAP, I THINK HIS EYES LIT UP.>>SO THE BALL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE KANSAS CITY 15. FIVE PLAYS, FIVE PASSES SO FAR FOR LUCK. ANOTHER PASS. ANOTHER COMPLETION, TO BRAZILL, WHO’S DOWN TO THE 10.>>THE BALL’S COMING OUT VERY QUICKLY. IT’S HELPING THEIR TACKLES, CASTONZO AND CHERILUS, IN BLOCKING BOTH TAMBA HALI AND JUSTIN HOUSTON.>>GONNA SAY A GREAT YEAR FOR LUCK. SET AN NFL RECORD WITH THE MOST PASSING YARDS IN THE FIRST TWO SEASONS OF A CAREER. AND HE HAS COME OUT LIGHTING IT UP HERE IN THE COLTS’ OPENING DRIVE. SECOND DOWN AND 5 FROM THE KANSAS CITY 10. ANOTHER PASS. THAT ONE FOR A TOUCHDOWN TO HILTON!>>FOR A YOUNG RECEIVER, HE GIVES JUST ENOUGH OF AN INSIDE MOVE TO GET DUNTA ROBINSON SOME SEPARATION, AND THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL THROW TO THE BACK OF THE END ZONE.>>LITERALLY A PERFECT OPENING DRIVE FOR ANDREW LUCK. 7 OF 7. 74 YARDS, ALL PASS PLAYS. FOUR TO HILTON, AND THEN THE LAST FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. AS ADAM VINATIERI, IN HIS 18th YEAR — AND THE 41-YEAR-OLD VETERAN TIES IT UP. T.Y. HILTON WITH A TOUCHDOWN CATCH FROM LUCK, WHO WAS A PERFECT 7 OF 7, AS KANSAS CITY WILL GET THEIR HANDS ON THE FOOTBALL AGAIN. QUINTIN DEMPS IS GONNA COME OUT WITH IT. AND DEMPS MOVES ACROSS THE 20, CLOSE TO THE 25-YARD LINE. AGAIN, THE STORY LINE HERE EARLY, JAMAAL CHARLES HURT ON THE SIXTH PLAY OF THE GAME. ANDY REID IN HIS 20th POSTSEASON GAME, 10th PLAYOFF APPEARANCE IN 15 SEASONS. BUT THIS TURNAROUND IN KANSAS CITY HAS BEEN REMARKABLE. WORST IN THE NFL, 2-14 LAST YEAR, AND LOOK WHAT THEY’VE DONE IN THIS TURNAROUND AT 11-5. SECOND IN THE TURNOVER MARGIN, PLUS-18, HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BIG KEYS. BUT, AGAIN, JAMAAL CHARLES OUT OF THE LINEUP, BEING EVALUATED FOR A CONCUSSION — AS ALEX SMITH GOES TO THE AIR, LOOKING FOR DWAYNE BOWE, WHO HE CONNECTED WITH ON THE FIRST TOUCHDOWN.>>AND, DAN, FROM THAT GRAPHIC I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT NUMBER THERE WAS THE TURNOVER DIFFERENTIAL, AND I ATTRIBUTE 90% OF THAT TO THE ACQUISITION OF THE QUARTERBACK, ALEX SMITH. NOW, IT COST THEM A SECOND-ROUND PICK LAST YEAR AND WHAT BECAME A SECOND-ROUND PICK THIS YEAR, BUT I WOULD TELL YOU I THINK ALEX SMITH HAS BEEN WORTH EVERY BIT OF THAT.>>YOU CAN SEE KNILE DAVIS IN THERE BEHIND THE FULLBACK, ANTHONY SHERMAN, ON SECOND DOWN AND 10. AND SMITH BUYS SOME TIME, GOES UP. AND DOWN HE GOES, JUST ACROSS THE 25. A FLAG IS DOWN AT ABOUT THE 44.>>WHILE THE QUARTERBACK WAS IN THE POCKET, ILLEGAL CONTACT. NUMBER 23, DEFENSE. IT’S A 5-YARD PENALTY. FIRST DOWN.>>AND THAT’S ON VONTAE DAVIS.>>HE DOESN’T LOOK 100% TO ME. BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. HANDS ARE ON RIGHT THERE ON THE TURN. QUARTERBACK’S IN THE POCKET, SO IT’S A 5-YARD PENALTY. I’VE BEEN WATCHING HIM KIND OF CLOSELY. HAD AN MRI ON THE GROIN AFTER LAST WEEK. IT CAME BACK NEGATIVE. BUT I DON’T THINK HE’S BOUNCING AROUND LIKE HE USUALLY DOES.>>SO IT’S A FIRST AND 10 FOR KANSAS CITY JUST ACROSS ITS OWN 30. FOUR-MINUTE MARK, OPENING QUARTER. AND HERE’S DAVIS. AND THE ROOKIE OUT OF ARKANSAS, WHO WAS A THIRD-ROUND DRAFT PICK, GETS ANOTHER 4 YARDS. AND, AGAIN, IN FOR CHARLES, WHO WAS OUT OF THE GAME AT THE 11:40 MARK OF THIS QUARTER. WELL, THERE’S THE BRAIN TRUST. HAS A LOT TO DO WITH THE TRANSFORMATION OF THIS TEAM. CLARK HUNT, THE OWNER OF THE CHIEFS. JOHN DORSEY, THE NEW G.M. BUT IT WAS REID WHO HUNT FIRST HIRED AS THE BIG MOVE. AND HERE’S DWAYNE BOWE WITH A BIG GAIN. AND HE’S STILL ON HIS FEET! IS HE GONNA GET TO THE END ZONE? JUST DRAGGED DOWN INSIDE THE 5 BY ANTOINE BETHEA. 63-YARD GAIN FOR BOWE.>>GREAT PLAY-ACTION. BOWE IS GONNA GET INSIDE TOLER. ONCE HE’S INSIDE, HE WINS. NOW WATCH NUMBER 30, LANDRY. RIGHT HERE, MISS THE TACKLE. THERE’S ANOTHER MISSED TACKLE. IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA GET IT TO THE HOUSE, BUT BETHEA CATCHES HIM FROM BEHIND. THAT IS A GREAT CUT RIGHT THERE BY BOWE. AT 221 POUNDS, HE BREAKS TWO TACKLES AND GETS IT ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE 2-YARD LINE.>>YOU SAW REID EARLIER THERE. THEY AWARDED BOWE A 5-YEAR, $56-MILLION DEAL THIS YEAR. AND HE JUST PAID OFF BIG-TIME THERE. FIRST AND GOAL. SMITH ROLLS TO HIS RIGHT AND JUST THROWS IT AWAY. SECOND AND GOAL.>>AND THAT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE MUCH, THAT PLAY RIGHT THERE, BUT IT KIND OF EXEMPLIFIES WHAT ALEX SMITH IS. HE DOES NOT TAKE CHANCES. SOMETIMES THAT’S GOOD. SOMETIMES THEY’D RATHER SEE HIM TRY TO MAKE A BIG PLAY, FORCE SOMETHING, BUT HE DOES NOT FORCE THE FOOTBALL.>>AND THAT’S WHY HE GETS TAGGED WITH, “OH, HE’S A GOOD MANAGER OF THE GAME. NOTHING SPECTACULAR.” BUT HE WAS THE NUMBER-ONE OVERALL PICK NINE YEARS AGO OUT OF UTAH. SPENT EIGHT YEARS IN SAN FRANCISCO BEFORE COLIN KAEPERNICK UNSEATED HIM, AND HERE HE IS WITH THE CHIEFS TRYING TO BREAK A PLAYOFF-LOSS STREAK — AS DAVIS GETS CLOSE TO THE GOAL LINE. IT’LL BRING UP THIRD AND GOAL FROM INSIDE THE 1.>>WELL, I THOUGHT HE WAS IN, AND KAVELL CONNER MADE A BIG HIT ON THE 1-YARD LINE. WATCH CONNER FILL. RIGHT THERE. TURNS HIM SIDEWAYS AND HE DOESN’T GET IN THE END ZONE.>>WELL, KANSAS CITY SCORED ON THE OTHER THIRD AND GOAL WHEN ALEX SMITH FOUND BOWE, AND THEY’VE GOT THIRD AND GOAL NOW FROM JUST OUTSIDE THE GOAL LINE. AND THEY HAND IT OFF TO DAVIS. AND HE’S STOPPED! LEADING THE SURGE WAS CORY REDDING.>>33 YEARS OLD. STILL SO QUICK. WATCH HIM JUMP OUTSIDE THE BLOCK OF SCHWARTZ. STILL QUICK ENOUGH TO GET INSIDE. AND THEN HE GETS A BUNCH OF HELP FROM HIS FRIENDS. BOY, WHAT A NICE GOAL-LINE STOP BY THE HOME TEAM.>>REDDING, WHO PLAYED FOR PAGANO IN BALTIMORE. AND THAT SETS UP FOURTH AND GOAL AND THE FIELD-GOAL UNIT FOR KANSAS CITY, AS RYAN SUCCOP — YOU CAN SEE HE’S MISSED THREE OF HIS LAST FOUR ATTEMPTS. THIS IS JUST A CHIP SHOT, BUT HE MISSED A 41-YARD FIELD GOAL LAST WEEK IN THE LOSS TO THE CHARGERS IN OVERTIME. AGAIN, THAT WAS A GAME WHERE KANSAS CITY BASICALLY PLAYED ITS RESERVES. SO THIS ONE JUST FROM 19 YARDS OUT TO TAKE A 10-7 LEAD. AND NO PROBLEM FOR RYAN SUCCOP. SO BOTH TEAMS HAVE SCORED ON ALL OF THEIR POSSESSIONS SO FAR. ANDREW LUCK AND THE COLTS’ OFFENSE WILL GET ANOTHER CHANCE COMING UP. THE MOST PASSING YARDS IN THE FIRST TWO SEASONS IN NFL HISTORY, LUCK PASSING CAM NEWTON THIS SEASON. AND PEYTON MANNING — YOU SEE HIM IN THE COLT JERSEY THERE — BACK IN ’98-’99 HAD THE RECORD AT ONE POINT AS WELL. MAN HE TOOK OVER FOR AND STILL HEARS A LOT ABOUT — PEYTON MANNING — BUT LUCK 7 FOR 7 IN THAT OPENING DRIVE. ALL PASSES. AND HE AND THE COLTS WILL HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE HERE, TRAILING 10-7 WITH 53 SECONDS LEFT IN THE OPENING QUARTER. AND TAKING IT MIDWAY IN THE END ZONE IS BRAZILL. AND BRAZILL IS OUT CLOSE TO THE 30-YARD LINE. COLTS WITH AN NFL-LOW 14 TURNOVERS IN THE REGULAR SEASON. THEY BEGIN THIS DRIVE AT THEIR OWN 30. AND THIS IS DONALD BROWN WITH HIS FIRST CARRY OF THE GAME. AND IT COMES WITH 40 SECONDS LEFT IN THE OPENING QUARTER.>>YOU KNOW, IT’S INTERESTING. WE SHOWED THE GRAPHIC A MINUTE AGO, DANNY, WITH THE TOP THREE QUARTERBACKS ALL TIME. AND PEYTON MANNING’S STANDING THERE, AND WHEN YOU TALK TO ANDREW, HE DOES NOT LIKE THE COMPARISONS TO HIM. BUT WHEN I WATCH HIM LIKE RIGHT NOW, THE CONTROL HE TAKES, WEARING A COLTS UNIFORM, AND THE TALENT HE HAS, YOU CAN’T HELP BUT THINK OF IT.>>BACK TO THE AIR AGAIN. BALL WAS DEFLECTED OUT OF HIS ARM OR SOMEBODY GOT A PIECE OF HIS ARM AS HE WAS LOOKING FOR GRIFF WHALEN. THAT’LL BRING UP THIRD AND 6.>>YEAH, THE FIRST TIME THEY’VE REALLY AFFECTED THE QUARTERBACK. WATCH JUSTIN HOUSTON FROM THIS SIDE AND HALI FROM THIS SIDE. HOUSTON BEATS CHERILUS. HALI BEATS CASTONZO. BOY, THAT’S REALLY STRONG. AND THAT’S THE FIRST TIME THEY’VE REALLY AFFECTED ANDREW LUCK.>>TAMBA HALI AND JUSTIN HOUSTON BACK ON THE FIELD FOR THE SAME TIME IN MORE THAN A MONTH. BOTH HAVE BEEN BANGED UP, ESPECIALLY HOUSTON, WHO DISLOCATED HIS ELBOW MORE THAN A MONTH AGO AND IS HAVING HIS FIRST ACTION BACK. THIRD AND 6 NOW. AND MORE PRESSURE FOR LUCK, AND HE JUST STANDS IN THERE. AND THIS ONE IS KNOCKED DOWN AT THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. FOURTH DOWN, AND THAT’LL BRING UP THE PUNTING UNIT FOR INDIANAPOLIS.>>YEAH, THAT TIME THEY BROUGHT RON PARKER. ONE OF THE THINGS THIS TEAM DOES IS THEY CAN BLITZ FROM ALL THREE LEVELS. THAT MEANS DEFENSIVE LINEMEN, LINEBACKERS, AND DEFENSIVE BACKS. SAFETY RON PARKER COMES. BUT LUCK DOES A GREAT JOB CLIMBING THE POCKET. RIGHT THERE. STEPS UP IN THE POCKET, SHRUGS IT OFF, TRIES TO GET THE BALL DOWN THE FIELD. AND AWAITING THE PUNT OF PAT McAFEE, ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS PUNT-RETURN MEN IN HISTORY, DEXTER McCLUSTER, WHO’S GOT TWO PUNT RETURNS FOR TOUCHDOWNS THIS SEASON. DOES A LOT OF JUKING THERE BUT GETS NO FARTHER THAN THE 20. THE CHIEFS HAVE A 10-7 LEAD AND THE BALL BACK BEGINNING AT THEIR OWN 21-YARD LINE AS WE BEGIN THE SECOND QUARTER. DAN HICKS, MIKE MAYOCK, ALEX FLANAGAN WITH YOU TO OPEN UP THE NFL PLAYOFFS IN 2014. ALEX SMITH. INCOMPLETE. BIG STORY OF THE GAME IN THE FIRST QUARTER — JAMAAL CHARLES OUT FOR KANSAS CITY. AND FOR MORE, WE HEAD DOWN TO ALEX. ALEX.>>DAN AND MIKE, THE HIT THAT JAMAAL CHARLES TOOK IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF THIS GAME WAS SO INNOCUOUS THAT HEAD ATHLETIC TRAINER RICK BURKHOLDER AND ONE OF THE TEAM PHYSICIANS HAD TO REVIEW IT ON THE SIDELINE ON THE INJURY REPLAY SYSTEM MULTIPLE TIMES. IT APPEARS LIKELY THAT IT WAS THE TURF, THOUGH, THAT CAUSED A CONCUSSION IF THAT IS IN FACT WHAT HE HAS. MEANWHILE, RUNNING BACKS COACH ERIC BIENIEMY HAS BEEN SPENDING A LOT OF TIME WITH KNILE DAVIS ON THE SIDELINES, MOSTLY GOING OVER PASS PROTECTION, YOU GUYS, A VERY UNDERRATED PART OF JAMAAL CHARLES’ GAME.>>THANK YOU, ALEX. THEY FAKE IT TO DAVIS, AND SMITH AGAIN INCOMPLETE. SECOND DOWN AND 10. ROBERT MATHIS MAKING HIS PRESENCE KNOWN. THIRD DOWN AND 10 IT’LL BE FOR THE CHIEFS.>>EVERYBODY YOU TALK TO IN THIS ORGANIZATION TELLS YOU THERE ARE TWO PILLARS WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION ON THAT PLAYING FIELD. ONE OF THEM’S ROBERT MATHIS, AND THE OTHER IS REGGIE WAYNE.>>THE UNDISPUTED LEADERS OF THIS INDIANAPOLIS COLTS TEAM. OF COURSE WAYNE OUT, INJURED, BUT A HUGE PRESENCE COACHING ON THE SIDELINES, CHEERING ON THE OFFENSE. AND OF COURSE ROBERT MATHIS HAVING A PRO BOWL YEAR AGAIN. SMITH, ON THIRD AND 10, LOOKING DEEP DOWNFIELD, AND WIDE OPEN IS DONNIE AVERY! 79 YARDS TO AVERY, AS SMITH HAS FOUND BOWE FOR A BIG GAIN AND NOW AVERY.>>STEPHENSON’S GONNA PUSH MATHIS UP THE FIELD, AND A NICE JOB BY ALEX SMITH STEPPING UP INTO THE POCKET. AND THEN TOLER, NUMBER 28, LOOKS TO ME — AND, AGAIN, HE WAS INJURED. THIS IS HIS FIRST START IN SEVERAL WEEKS. DONNIE AVERY, ONE OF THE FASTEST WIDE RECEIVERS IN FOOTBALL, JUST BLEW RIGHT BY HIM.>>THAT COLTS DEFENSIVE SECONDARY GIVING UP SOME HUGE PASS PLAYS. KANSAS CITY WAS ABLE TO GET THE FIELD GOAL EARLIER WHEN BOWE GOT LOOSE FOR 63 YARDS. THAT ONE GOES FOR 79. AND KANSAS CITY, A CHANCE TO OPEN UP A 10-POINT LEAD HERE IN THE OPENING MOMENTS OF THE SECOND QUARTER. BACK HERE AT LUCAS OIL. KANSAS CITY OPENING UP A 17-7 LEAD, AS THAT LATEST DRIVE TOOK ALL OF 21 SECONDS — THE 79-YARD SCORING STRIKE TO DONNIE AVERY — AS ANDY REID AND THE CHIEFS LOOK TO BREAK THAT 0-FOR-7 PLAYOFF DROUGHT. KANSAS CITY HAS SCORED ON ALL THREE OF ITS FIRST POSSESSIONS. FIELD GOAL AND A COUPLE OF TOUCHDOWNS. LaVON BRAZILL TAKES A KNEE FOR INDIANAPOLIS. AND THAT WILL COME OUT TO THE 20.>>WE SPOKE TO ALEX SMITH YESTERDAY, AND ONE OF THE MAIN POINTS HE MADE WAS HE HAD TO IDENTIFY WHICH SIDE MATHIS LINED UP ON. AND THEN BECAUSE OF THE SPEED MATHIS HAS, MAKE SURE HE CLIMBS THE POCKET. LOOK AT HIM. HE STEPS UP, DROPS THE SHOULDER THROUGH SO THE BALL CAN’T BE RIPPED AWAY FROM HIM. THAT’S TEXTBOOK QUARTERBACK PLAY AGAINST AN OUTSIDE SPEED RUSHER.>>SO THERE’S THE LATEST CONNECTION. DONNIE AVERY THE RECIPIENT OF THE SMITH TOUCHDOWN PASS. TRENT RICHARDSON THE LONE SET BACK, AS HILTON GOES IN MOTION. AND THEY PITCH IT TO TRENT RICHARDSON, THE BIG ACQUISITION IN SEPTEMBER FOR THE COLTS. AND HE PUTS THE BALL ON THE GROUND, AND IT’S PICKED UP BY JUSTIN HOUSTON, AND KANSAS CITY HAS IT. SO THE FIRST TIME TRENT RICHARDSON TOUCHES THE BALL, HE FUMBLES IT. THIRD PICK OVERALL IN THE DRAFT. TRADED FROM CLEVELAND. AND IN HIS FIRST PLAYOFF TOUCH FOR INDIANAPOLIS, TURNS IT OVER.>>LOT OF DANCING HERE. SEAN SMITH FORCES HIM TO TURN IT BACK INSIDE. HE DOESN’T PROTECT THE FOOTBALL. WHO RIPS IT AWAY FROM HIM? HE JUST LOSES IT. WHEN HE TURNS BACK TO THE INSIDE — CARDINAL SIN. EVERYTHING — THERE IT IS RIGHT THERE. TAMBA HALI JUST GOT HIS HAND ON THE FOOTBALL.>>SO KANSAS CITY SET UP AT THE 17. AGAIN, ONLY 14 TURNOVERS ALL REGULAR SEASON FOR INDIANAPOLIS. THEY COUGH IT UP HERE, AND KANSAS CITY WITH AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY HERE TO INCREASE THEIR LEAD. THEY LEAD BY 10 ALREADY. AND DAVIS WITH THE CARRY. AND HE’S GOT A FIRST DOWN. FIRST AND GOAL, CHIEFS. ANTOINE BETHEA BROUGHT HIM DOWN. AND, AGAIN, ALL OF THIS BEING DONE WITHOUT JAMAAL CHARLES, OUT OF THE GAME ON THE SIXTH PLAY OF THE GAME.>>THE KANSAS CITY FRONT HAS BEEN DOMINANT. WATCH THE CUTBACK BY KNILE. THERE’S THE CUT, BACK ACROSS THE GRAIN. BETHEA, THE SAFETY, COMES IN TO MAKE THE TACKLE. BUT I LOVE THE WAY KNILE DAVIS FINISHES THIS RUN. GIVE CREDIT TO RODNEY HUDSON AND JEFF ALLEN ON THE FRONT SIDE OF THAT PLAY.>>THERE’S RICHARDSON ON THE SIDELINE, AS KANSAS CITY TRIES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS TURNOVER. ON FIRST AND GOAL, THEY GIVE IT TO DAVIS. NOTHING GOING LEFT. TRIES TO CHURN HIS WAY UP THE MIDDLE. AND HE LOST A LITTLE GROUND.>>THE KEY BLOCK THERE IS THE TIGHT END, FASANO, AND HE COULDN’T GET IT DONE. ANDREW LUCK, OF COURSE, SITTING THERE GOING, “OKAY, WHAT KIND OF DEFICIT AM I GONNA BE WORKING WITH HERE?”>>AGAIN, SUCH AN EFFICIENT, TURNOVER-FREE INDIANAPOLIS SEASON IT HAS BEEN. BUT HERE’S KANSAS CITY ON SECOND AND GOAL FROM THE 6. AND A TIME-OUT CALLED BY THE COLTS.>>THIS IS THE FIRST CHARGED TIME-OUT. INDIANAPOLIS — 30-SECOND TIME-OUT.>>WELL, THE COLTS’ DEFENSE DUG IN EARLIER WHEN KANSAS CITY GOT UP CLOSE. LOOK AT THE SHOVEL PASS THERE TO ANTHONY SHERMAN!>>[ LAUGHS ]>>HOW ABOUT THIS PLAYBOOK?>>WAIT A MINUTE. WHO SAID HE CAN’T MAKE PLAYS? IS THIS A GAME MANAGER? [ LAUGHS ] HE’S GONNA STEP UP INSIDE MATHIS AGAIN, OKAY? OUTSIDE OF STEPHENSON. STEPS UP INSIDE. SEES SHERMAN, THE FULLBACK OUT OF UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT. AND WATCH THE SHOVEL. [ LAUGHS ] THAT’S A PLAYMAKER, TO ME. THAT WAS COOL.>>SCORED HIS FIRST CAREER TOUCHDOWN ON A RECEPTION EARLIER IN THE YEAR AGAINST CLEVELAND, AND ANTHONY SHERMAN, AFTER ALL THAT SPECTACULAR WIDE-RECEIVING NUMBERS THAT ALEX SMITH WAS PUTTING UP TO BOWE AND TO AVERY, IT’S A LITTLE SHOVEL PASS TO THE FULLBACK. AND CHUCK PAGANO AND THE COLTS IN A 24-7 HOLE.>>AND I THINK AT HALFTIME WE OUGHT TO ASK TONY DUNGY A LITTLE BIT ABOUT 2005. HIS INDIANAPOLIS COLTS TEAM BEAT PITTSBURGH AND THUMPED THEM PRETTY GOOD LATE NOVEMBER, AND CAME BACK IN THE FIRST ROUND AND LOST TO THEM. VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE’RE SEEING HERE.>>AS BRAZILL TAKES A KNEE. AND WITH 13 MINUTES LEFT IN THE OPENING HALF.>>AND THE BIG PLAYS ADD UP TO A 24-7 DEFICIT FOR INDY. AND ON THE GROUND IS DONALD BROWN. HE HAD THE BIG GAME A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AGAINST KANSAS CITY ON THE ROAD. 33-YARD TOUCHDOWN RECEPTION. ALSO ADDED A 51-YARD TOUCHDOWN RUN, SO BROWN NOT A HUGE FACTOR THUS FAR AS LUCK AND THE COLTS OPEN UP WITH ALL PASSING EARLY ON. SO BROWN IN THERE FLANKING AGAIN LUCK HERE ON SECOND DOWN AND 7. AND LUCK FLOATING IT DOWN THE SIDELINE IN THE AREA OF HILTON INCOMPLETE. THAT’LL BRING UP THIRD AND LONG.>>REALLY NICE JOB BY THE CORNER HERE. WATCH WHAT HAPPENS. HE NEVER BITES AT ALL. IT’S A DOUBLE MOVE BY T.Y. HILTON. MARCUS COOPER, THE ROOKIE FREE AGENT OUT OF RUTGERS, DOESN’T BUY IT, AND THAT’S REALLY GOOD SITUATIONAL FOOTBALL. YOU’VE GOT A BIG LEAD. WHY WOULD YOU JUMP A DOUBLE MOVE?>>WELL, TRENT RICHARDSON IS BACK IN THE GAME FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER THE FUMBLE, WHICH LED TO THE LATEST KANSAS CITY SCORE. LUCK AVOIDS THE PRESSURE. STEPS UP. AND IT IS CAUGHT CLOSE TO THE 40-YARD LINE BY GRIFF WHALEN, ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE STANFORD CONNECTIONS FOR ANDREW LUCK. T.Y. HILTON SLOW — IN FACT HAS NOT GOTTEN UP OFF THE TURF. AFTER A 17-YARD GAIN BY WHALEN, HILTON, WHO WAS THE MAIN TARGET FOR LUCK IN THE OPENING DRIVE THAT ENDED WITH A TOUCHDOWN. TAKE A LOOK AT NUMBER 13.>>YOU’RE GONNA SEE 13. HE’S BEHIND WHALEN. AND THE SAFETY ON THE WAY — RIGHT THERE IS GONNA TAKE A BIG HIT. KENDRICK LEWIS TRYING TO GET TO WHALEN.>>NEVER SAW IT COMING. T.Y. HILTON, GOOD NEWS FOR COLTS, IS BACK UP, AS DONALD BROWN GETS THE CARRY ON FIRST DOWN AND 10. CLOSE TO THE 45-YARD LINE.>>IT’S GONNA BE TOUGH MAKING A LIVING IN THERE WITH BIG DONTARI POE.>>AND ALL THOSE PRO BOWLERS. YOU KNOW, THE CHIEFS HAD SIX PRO BOWLERS LAST YEAR WHEN THEY WENT 2-14. THEY’VE GOT EIGHT THIS YEAR. AND AGAIN, WITH THE ADDITION OF HOUSTON BACK AND HALI BACK IN THERE, THEY ARE ARE FORMIDABLE ESPECIALLY FRONT SEVEN. IT’S SECOND DOWN AND 5. LUCK BUYING SOME TIME. WAS PRESSURED THERE. INCOMPLETE. INTENDED FOR WHALEN. HALI WAS IN THERE.>>YEAH, THAT PASS WAS AFFECTED BY TAMBA HALI. HE WAS WORKING ON ANTHONY CASTONZO. AND THEY CALL THIS CONVERTING SPEED TO POWER.>>AGAIN, DIDN’T PRACTICE ALL WEEK. HE REALLY AGGRAVATED THAT SWOLLEN KNEE IN THE LAST GAME A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO — AS THAT PASS IS COMPLETE TO COBY FLEENER BUT SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN. ERIC BERRY, PRO BOWLER THERE, FOR KANSAS CITY.>>THERE’S THAT MATCHUP WE TALKED ABOUT EARLIER IN THE GAME. FLEENER WON WHEN HE WAS LINED UP OUTSIDE. THIS TIME HE’S IN-LINE. AND HERE’S BERRY, AND THIS IS THE ONE-ON-ONE MATCHUP WE TALKED ABOUT. VERY CLOSE TO A FIRST DOWN. AND IF HE DOESN’T MAKE THIS RIGHT NOW, CHUCK PAGANO’S GOT TO BE THINKING, “AM I GONNA GO FOR IT OR NOT?”>>YEAH, DOWN 24-7.>>EXACTLY.>>”HOW MANY POSSESSIONS DO I HAVE LEFT?”>>AND HE’S SHORT.>>I THINK YOU GO FOR IT RIGHT HERE. I REALLY DO.>>AND THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE GONNA DO. WITH 11:08 LEFT IN THE HALF, TRENT RICHARDSON IS OUT THERE.>>ARE THEY JUST TRYING TO GET THEM TO JUMP OFF?>>AND LUCK KEEPS IT! THEY FAKED IT TO RICHARDSON, AND LUCK SLIDES IN SAFELY. GAIN OF 21. THEY HAD EVERYBODY FOOLED. EVERYBODY WENT FOR RICHARDSON, AND LUCK KEPT IT FOR A BIG GAIN.>>THAT IS THE FIRST TIME THIS ENTIRE SEASON THAT ANDREW LUCK KEPT THE FOOTBALL IN ZONE READ. THEY’VE BEEN PROTECTING HIM. THEY DIDN’T WANT THE FRANCHISE TO GET HURT. BUT IN THE PLAYOFFS, THE FIRST TIME ALL YEAR. AND THEN SMART ENOUGH TO GET DOWN.>>AND OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR PEP HAMILTON LIKES THOSE SLIDES, DOESN’T HE?>>[ LAUGHS ]>>ANDREW LUCK’S A BIG GUY, 6’4″, 240, AND HE CAN TAKE SOME DEFENDERS OUT, BUT THAT’S WHAT PEP LIKES TO SEE. KEEP THE FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK HEALTHY. THEY JUST GET THIS PLAY OFF. AND LUCK TO THE AIR. AND HILTON, WHO TOOK A BIG HIT EARLIER, TAKES ANOTHER ONE THERE AND ENDS UP STREAKING UP THE SIDELINES FOR A GAIN OF 10.>>HOW DOES 178 POUNDS RUN THROUGH THAT HIT BY BERRY? BERRY’S GONNA COME UP FLYING, DELIVERS A BIG HIT. [ LAUGHS ] THAT’S AN EXCELLENT JOB. T.Y. HILTON.>>HILTON GETS LOOSE, PICKS UP THE FIRST DOWN. AND COLTS WITH A LITTLE LIFE HERE, TRAILING 24-7. INCOMPLETE. FALLING DOWN WAS HILTON ON THE FAR SIDELINE, AS MARCUS COOPER WAS DEFENDING. CROWD DOESN’T LIKE IT, AS THEY SAW HILTON STUMBLE.>>REMEMBER, COOPER IS A ROOKIE FREE AGENT OUT OF RUTGERS. HILTON’S TRYING TO GET — THERE’S THE FIRST LEGAL JAM. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT. CONTACT STARTED AT ABOUT 3 OR 4 YARDS. WHAT THEY’VE DONE IS THEY’VE MOVED COOPER TO CORNER AND BRANDON FLOWERS HAS KICKED INSIDE TO PLAY THE SLOT.>>FLOWERS, THE PRO BOWL CORNERBACK. JUST INSIDE THE 20 ON SECOND AND 10. HALI COMING AROUND THE CORNER. LUCK EVADES HIM. AND INCOMPLETE TO WHALEN. WHALEN ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE RECEIVERS ALONG WITH HILTON WHO HAS EMERGED WITH REGGIE WAYNE OUT. REGGIE WAYNE, AFTER 189 GAMES, TORE HIS ACL. A HUGE BLOW FOR THE COLTS. THEY MISSED A NUMBER OF STARTERS ON OFFENSE. THEY ALSO LOST A COUPLE OF RUNNING BACKS. THEIR STARTING TIGHT END, DWAYNE ALLEN, OUT. AND THEY’VE BEEN PICKING UP THE PIECES EVER SINCE, AND THAT WAS THE BIGGEST PIECE TO FILL THERE WITH WAYNE. THAT BALL IS DEFLECTED BY JUSTIN HOUSTON. YOU CAN SEE HIM WEARING THAT BIG ELBOW BRACE ON HIS RIGHT ARM AFTER DISLOCATING IT MORE THAN A MONTH AGO. HIS FIRST GAME BACK SINCE.>>YEAH, WHEN THEY’RE HEALTHY, WHEN HE’S ON ONE SIDE, TAMBA HALI ON THE OTHER, DONTARI POE IN THE MIDDLE, THEIR FRONT IS AS GOOD AS ANY FRONT IN THE LEAGUE. AND, DAN, THE WORST GAME INDY PLAYED WAS AGAINST ST. LOUIS. THEY GOT WHACKED 38-8, AND I THINK THIS DEFENSIVE FRONT OF KANSAS CITY IS VERY SIMILAR TO ST. LOUIS.>>SO RYAN VINATIERI, THE 41-YEAR-OLD VETERAN WHO CONNECTED ON A CAREER-HIGH 35 FIELD GOALS — ADAM VINATIERI — DURING THE REGULAR SEASON, CONNECTS THERE FROM 37 YARDS OUT. HAD A NICE CONVERSATION WITH ROBERT YESTERDAY. OF COURSE A CANDIDATE FOR DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR. AND HE SAID, “I ADMIT IT. IT WOULD BE A DREAM COME TRUE,” FOR A GUY THAT WAS OUT OF ALABAMA A&M SOME 11 YEARS AGO, HAVING A CAREER SEASON. SIX STRAIGHT PRO BOWLS AT THE AGE OF 32 AND ONE OF FOUR COLTS WHO PLAYED FOR THE SUPER BOWL CHAMPION INDIANAPOLIS TEAM THAT IS STILL A PART OF THIS TEAM. QUINTIN DEMPS COMING OUT OF THE END ZONE FOR KANSAS CITY. AND HE’S KNOCKED DOWN HARD SHORT OF THE 20-YARD LINE BY KAVELL CONNER.>>AND YOU NOTICE TOLER IS OUT OF THE GAME. I TOLD YOU I DIDN’T THINK HE COULD GO. THEY’RE NOW PLAYING DARIUS BUTLER AT THE LEFT CORNER. KNILE DAVIS AROUND THE LEFT END. FOR A BIG GAIN. LaRON LANDRY MAKES THE STOP FOR THE COLTS BUT NOT BEFORE A GAIN OF 7 FOR DAVIS. AGAIN, NO JAMAAL CHARLES STILL.>>A LOT PEOPLE CRITICIZED ANDY REID LAST WEEK FOR NOT PLAYING HIS STARTERS, AND I THINK YOU GET TWO BENEFITS. ONE, YOU REST THE STARTERS, BUT SECONDARILY GUYS LIKE KNILE DAVIS GET ADDITIONAL TOUCHES. HE WAS A BELL COW A WEEK AGO, AND NOW HE’S GOT TO STEP UP AND PLAY.>>HERE’S DAVIS AGAIN, LOOKING FOR A HOLE, AND HE’S GOT THE FIRST DOWN. ANTOINE BETHEA BRINGING HIM DOWN.>>THAT OFFENSIVE LINE IS REALLY DOING A NICE JOB FOR KANSAS CITY. THEY’RE CONTROLLING — I THINK BOTH SIDES OF THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE RIGHT NOW ARE BEING CONTROLLED BY KANSAS CITY.>>BY THE WAY, JAMAAL CHARLES OFFICIALLY RULED OUT FOR THE REST OF THIS GAME. SO AGAIN, A PLAYER THAT ACCOUNTED FOR MORE THAN A THIRD OF THE OFFENSE IN THE REGULAR SEASON FOR KANSAS CITY OUT OF THE GAME. BUT DAVIS IN THERE FOR CHARLES. HAS 10 CARRIES AND 42 YARDS. AS ALEX SMITH KEEPS IT.>>[ LAUGHS ] OH, BOY, YOU KNOW, TWO WEEKS AGO WHEN THEY PLAYED INDIANAPOLIS IN THE REGULAR SEASON, ALEX SMITH RAN ZONE READ KEEP, LIKE YOU SAW RIGHT THERE, TWICE. BOTH TIMES INDIANAPOLIS WAS FOOLED. I THINK THERE WAS A POINT OF EMPHASIS THIS WEEK, DANNY, ON THAT PLAY, AND THEY HANDLED IT PRETTY WELL.>>YOU SEE WEEK 16 VERSUS THE COLTS. 153 YARDS PASSING. AND ALEX SMITH HAVING A GOOD GAME HERE TODAY WITH ALREADY 181 YARDS THROUGH THE AIR. COUPLE OF BIG STRIKES TO AVERY AND BOWE. ON SECOND AND 7, SMITH’S GONNA RUN IT AGAIN. HE’S SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN, I BELIEVE, BUT SMITH SHOWING HIS MOBILE WAYS AGAIN. A GAIN OF 6.>>SNEAKY ATHLETIC. YOU KNOW, HE DOESN’T RUN 4.5. HE WON’T BLOW YOU AWAY WITH HIS ATHLETICISM. BUT AT COLLEGE, AT UTAH WITH URBAN MEYER, HE RAN THE SPREAD. WAS VERY EFFECTIVE BOTH WITH PLANNED QUARTERBACK RUNS AND WHAT YOU SAW RIGHT THERE, A SCRAMBLE.>>DID SET A KANSAS CITY QUARTERBACK RUSHING RECORD WITH A PER-CARRY AVERAGE OF 5.7. JUST SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN THERE, SO THIRD AND SHORT AT THE 39. AND HERE IS SMITH AGAIN. PICKS UP THE FIRST DOWN ACROSS THE 45.>>HOW ABOUT THAT? A LITTLE QUARTERBACK KEEP. I LOVE THE CALL. TWO KEY PLAYS IN THE FIRST HALF HAVE BEEN PLANNED QUARTERBACK RUNS. SEE STEPHENSON PULLING OUT, KNOCKING BETHEA UP THE FIELD. AND HOW ABOUT ALEX SMITH FINISHING THE RUN?>>A LOT OF ANXIOUS EYES ON ALEX SMITH AS FAR AS KANSAS CITY IS CONCERNED, IN HIS FIRST SEASON WITH KANSAS CITY. “IS THIS GONNA BE THE GUY THAT IS GONNA GET KANSAS CITY TO THE BIG ONE?” IS HE THE KIND OF QUARTERBACK THAT CAN DO THAT? CERTAINLY HAD SOME IMPRESSIVE GAMES AS A 49er. AND FIRST AND 10, SWINGS IT OUT TO KNILE DAVIS. JERRELL FREEMAN ON THE COVERAGE FOR INDIANAPOLIS, AS WE SEND IT BACK DOWN TO ALEX.>>WELL, DAN, I THINK ANDY REID AND ALEX SMITH BOTH HAVING AN AWFUL LOT OF FUN TOGETHER THIS SEASON, THE TWO TIED AT THE HIP, REALLY, IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT IN GETTING A FRESH START — OF COURSE ALEX SMITH COMING FROM SAN FRANCISCO AND ANDY REID BEING FIRED IN PHILADELPHIA. BUT ANDY SAYS HE HAS SO MUCH TRUST IN ALEX SMITH, THAT ALEX, HIS QUARTERBACK, DOESN’T LET THE LITTLE THINGS GET TO HIM, AND HE CAN RECOVER SO WELL IN GAMES. AND I THINK WE’RE SEEING KIND OF SOME OF THE UPSIDE OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP TODAY.>>NOW SECOND AND 9. DEXTER McCLUSTER WITH A NICE CATCH. THAT’LL BRING UP THIRD DOWN.>>NICE BLOCK BY DWAYNE BOWE. BUT TO WHAT ALEX WAS JUST SAYING, I THINK THE WHOLE ANDY REID THING IS INTERESTING. I THINK IT WAS TIME FOR HIM TO LEAVE PHILADELPHIA. I THINK IT WORKED OUT TO THE BENEFIT OF KANSAS CITY. CHIP KELLY COMES IN. PHILADELPHIA PLAYS TONIGHT. I THINK IT WAS A WIN-WIN.>>AND HE’S BACK TO COACHING. HE WAS SO HAPPY WHEN WE TALKED TO HIM YESTERDAY. HE SAID, “I GOT THAT PERSONNEL THING GOING IN PHILADELPHIA WHERE I REALLY GOT AWAY FROM WHAT I REALLY LOVE TO DO.” AND THAT’S BEEN RETURNED TO HIM AGAIN IN KANSAS CITY. THIRD AND 4. SMITH LOOKS RIGHT, GOES LEFT. AND DROPS IT OUT FOR THE FIRST DOWN TO ANTHONY FASANO, WHOSE FIRST CATCH OF THE GAME IS A KEY ONE AND KEEPS THE CHAINS MOVING AFTER A GAIN OF 5.>>ANDY REID IS KNOWN FOR THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE SCREEN GAME IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. THEY’RE GONNA FAKE SCREEN RIGHT AND COME BACK TO FASANO IN A TIGHT-END MIDDLE SCREEN. WELL DESIGNED. AND FASANO’S NOT GONNA BREAK THE SPEED LIMIT, BUT HE GETS YOU THE FIRST DOWN.>>FASANO A STARTER IN MIAMI FOR SOME FIVE YEARS. AND WHEN WE TALKED TO PAGANO AND THE COLTS, HE SAID, “WE’RE GONNA SEE A LOT OF DIFFERENT STUFF THAN WE SAW IN THE FIRST MEETING A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO FROM ANDY REID AND HIS OFFENSE.” AS KNILE DAVIS GETS THE CALL, AND HE’S INSIDE THE 40-YARD LINE. JERRELL FREEMAN BRINGING HIM DOWN.>>THIS IS A NICE DRIVE. YOU’VE GOT A 24-10 LEAD. INDY HAD A LITTLE BIT OF MOMENTUM AFTER THAT ANDREW LUCK KEEP ON FOURTH AND 1. THEY KICK A FIELD GOAL. AND NOW THE ANSWER HERE IS PRETTY SIGNIFICANT. DWAYNE BOWE IN THE BACKFIELD.>>LOOK AT THE TOTAL YARDS ALLOWED BY THE CHIEFS — 289 TODAY. SECOND DOWN AND 5. AND THAT BALL’S TIPPED AT THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE BY DARIUS BUTLER, ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE ACQUISITIONS BY RYAN GRIGSON, THE G.M. OF INDIANAPOLIS, A GUY THAT WAS A SECOND-ROUND PICK BY NEW ENGLAND YEARS AGO.>>HE DOES A NICE JOB. MOST DEFENSIVE BACKS ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE WORKING ON A TACKLE.>>BUTLER JUST 5’10”, ABLE TO SKY UPWARD AND KNOCK THAT DOWN. THAT’LL BRING UP THIRD DOWN ON THE 11th PLAY OF THIS DRIVE.>>BIG FIRST DOWN HERE ‘CAUSE I DON’T BELIEVE THEY’RE IN FIELD-GOAL RANGE.>>A TIME-OUT CALLED. THERE’S GREG MANUSKY, THE COLTS’ DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, WHO SPENT SOME TIME IN SAN FRANCISCO WHEN ALEX SMITH WAS THERE.>>SURE DID. AND HE WAS A LINEBACKER FOR THE CHIEFS.>>THIRD DOWN AND 5. SMITH TO THE AIR TO McCLUSTER FOR THE FIRST DOWN AND MORE. SO THEY GO TO THE PRO BOWL PUNT-RETURN MAN, McCLUSTER, FOR THE FIRST DOWN.>>AND THAT WAS A PICK PLAY. YOU’RE GONNA SEE DWAYNE BOWE, NUMBER 82, RIGHT HERE. WATCH HIM SET A PICK ON 20, DARIUS BUTLER. AS A FORMER DEFENSIVE BACK, I GET HIGHLY FRUSTRATED THAT NEVER GETS CALLED, BUT IT’S A DIFFICULT CALL THE WAY IT’S SET UP RIGHT NOW IN THE NFL.>>AND ALL LUCK CAN DO IS WATCH FROM THE SIDELINES AS KANSAS CITY IS NOW INSIDE THE 20 WITH ANOTHER FIRST AND 10. SMITH’S GOT PRESSURE COMING UP THE MIDDLE. AVOIDS IT AND SHOVELS IT AWAY TO KNILE DAVIS.>>WHO IS THIS ALEX SMITH WE’RE SEEING TODAY?>>HE IS MR. SHOVEL.>>HE’S GONNA THROW ONE BEHIND HIS BACK SOON. WATCH THE FOOTWORK HERE. NOW, MY THING WITH HIM — HE’S A HALF-FIELD GUY. WHEN HE SEES COLOR LIKE THAT, AND KAVELL CONNER FLASHED IMMEDIATELY, HE PULLS THE BALL DOWN. SNEAKS DOWN. HERE COMES KNILE DAVIS SNEAKING OUT. GETS THE FOOTBALL. AND THE HIT BY FREEMAN. IT’S GOOD FOOTWORK. REALLY GOOD FOOTWORK.>>DAY AT THE IMPROV AT LUCAS OIL FOR ALEX SMITH. SECOND DOWN AND 7. SMITH GOES TO THE MIDDLE, AND UNABLE TO HOLD ON IS AVERY. AND JERRELL FREEMAN HAS BEEN VERY ACTIVE. FREE AGENT SIGNEE FROM MARY HARDIN-BAYLOR. HE’S OUT OF WACO, TEXAS. HE’S BEEN THE LEADING TACKLER THE LAST COUPLE OF SEASONS FOR INDIANAPOLIS. HE WAS RELEASED BY THE TITANS PRIOR TO THE ’08 SEASON, SO HE WENT TO THE CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE FOR THREE YEARS, PLAYED WITH SASKATCHEWAN, GOT HIS WAY BACK INTO THE NFL. GOT A CALL FROM RYAN GRIGSON AND HAS TURNED IT INTO THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME. HE SAYS HE PLAYS LIKE HE DOESN’T WANT TO GO BACK TO CANADA. AND HE’S BEEN PLAYING LIKE THAT FOR THE COLTS. THIRD DOWN AND 7. THEY JUST GET THE PLAY OFF. AND SMITH’S GONNA TRY TO RUN FOR THE FIRST DOWN, AND HE GETS IT! 1:59 LEFT HERE IN THE OPENING HALF. KANSAS CITY UP 24-10. FIRST AND GOAL FROM THE COLT 8. SMITH GOING TO THE END ZONE, AND HE WAS LOOKING FOR BOWE. SECOND AND GOAL. FLAG HAS BEEN DROPPED AT ABOUT THE 3-YARD LINE.>>YEAH.>>DURING THE PLAY, PERSONAL FOUL, FACE MASK. NUMBER 23, DEFENSE. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. FIRST DOWN.>>AND THAT’S ON VONTAE DAVIS.>>TOP OF THE SCREEN. WORKING ON AVERY. WHEN AVERY COMES BACK TO THE OUTSIDE, THAT’S AN OBVIOUS GRAB, AN OBVIOUS CALL. AND AGAIN, I DON’T SEE THE SAME POP AND MOVEMENT SKILLS THAT I’VE SEEN ALL YEAR LONG FROM VONTAE DAVIS. I DON’T THINK HE’S ANYWHERE NEAR 100%.>>SO FIRST AND GOAL. BALL NOW INSIDE THE 5. AND BULLING HIS WAY IN IS KNILE DAVIS FOR ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN.>>WATCH THESE TWO GUYS ON ZONE SCHEME. YOU’RE GONNA SEE SCHWARTZ AND FROM THE BACK SIDE, STEPHENSON, GET A PIECE. AND WHENEVER YOU’RE IN A ZONE, YOU DON’T HAVE A SPECIFIC MAN, BUT THEY DO A GREAT JOB OF CREATING MOVEMENT. RIGHT THERE. AND THEN DAVIS CUTS BEHIND IT.>>SO KNILE DAVIS GETS INTO THE SCORING ACT FOR KANSAS CITY. AND NOW SUCCOP TRYING TO MAKE IT A 31-10 LEAD FOR KANSAS CITY WITH 1:51 LEFT. SO THE CHIEFS IN CONTROL. AS KANSAS CITY HAS OPENED UP A 31-10 LEAD ON INDIANAPOLIS. AND BRAZILL, BACK IN HIS END ZONE, TAKES A KNEE. AND SO WITH 1:51 LEFT HERE, ANDREW LUCK AND THE COLTS TRY TO GET SOME SORT OF DRIVE AND POSITIVITY GOING INTO THE LOCKER ROOM HERE, MIKE.>>YEAH, THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DRIVE, OBVIOUSLY. I’M STATING THE OBVIOUS, BUT AT THIS POINT ANDREW LUCK’S GOT TO DO ANYTHING HE CAN TO GET POINTS ON THE BOARD. T.Y. HILTON IS BACK IN THE GAME HEALTHY, AND HE’S BEEN THE ONE DIFFERENCE MAKER SO FAR FOR INDIANAPOLIS.>>LUCK HANGS IN THERE, AND IT’S COMPLETE TO COBY FLEENER. NO, INCOMPLETE, AS FLEENER MADE A GOOD TRY FOR IT. YET ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE CONNECTIONS AT STANFORD. YOU GOT FLEENER, YOU GOT PEP HAMILTON, THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR INDIANAPOLIS, ALONG WITH GRIFF WHALEN.>>I LOVE WHAT PEP SAID ABOUT GRIFF WHALEN WHEN HE WALKED ON AT STANFORD AS A TRUE FRESHMAN. HE SAID HE HAD 17% BODY FAT AND RAN A 4.8 40. AND HE SAID, “WHAT DO I DO WITH THAT?”>>NO SURPRISE TO LUCK HOW WHALEN HAS WORKED HIS WAY INTO THE LINEUP HERE FOR INDIANAPOLIS. AND HERE IS LUCK. AND CLOSE TO THE 30-YARD LINE. FOR A GAIN OF 9. PEP HAMILTON SO COMPLIMENTARY OF COURSE, YOU WOULD EXPECT, ABOUT ANDREW LUCK, WHO HE COACHED AT STANFORD. JUST SAYS HE CONTINUES TO BE MARVELLED BY HIS MEMORY AND THE WAY HE’S ABLE TO RECALL FORMATIONS. HE WAS TELLING US YESTERDAY, HE GOES BACK TO THE 2010 ORANGE BOWL WITH SOME THINGS, AND LUCK SAYS, “OH, YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. BUT WASN’T IT A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN THAT?” THERE’S A PASS COMPLETE TO FLEENER. SECOND-ROUND DRAFT PICK FROM THE CARDINAL. HUSAIN ABDULLAH WITH THE STOP.>>ANDREW IS SO SELF-EFFACING, HE CAN’T STAND THAT KIND OF COMPLIMENT.>>COLTS READY TO GO FROM THE 30, FIRST AND 10, AFTER CALLING THE TIME-OUT. ONE LEFT HERE WITH 1:02 LEFT. TRAILING 31-10. AND MOVEMENT ON KANSAS CITY’S DEFENSE, AND THE FLAGS COME IN.>>GOT THE IVY LEAGUER. HE’S GONNA HAVE TO LEAVE THE GAME NOW. MIKE CATAPANO. YOU GET SO FEW OPPORTUNITIES.>>NEUTRAL-ZONE INFRACTION. NUMBER 77, DEFENSE. 5-YARD PENALTY. STILL FIRST DOWN.>>ON THE ROOKIE OUT OF PRINCETON. BUT REMEMBER HOW ANDREW LUCK BEGAN THIS GAME — PERFECT 7 FOR 7. ALL PASSES IN THE OPENING DRIVE. SINCE THEN, 4 FOR 12, SO HE HAS COOLED OFF CONSIDERABLY.>>WE TALK ABOUT, CAN YOU AFFECT A QUARTERBACK? AND IT DOESN’T ALWAYS TRANSLATE INTO SACKS. IT’S PRESSURES. IT’S HITS. AND I THINK THEIR FRONT’S DONE A NICE JOB THERE. STATISTICALLY YOU DON’T SEE IT, BUT THEY’VE AFFECTED THAT GUY.>>TAMBA HALI, NUMBER 91, TRYING TO GET AROUND THE EDGE AGAIN AT LUCK. LUCK’S PASS COMPLETE AND CAUGHT BY T.Y. HILTON FOR THE FIRST DOWN. GAIN OF 22. JUST UNDER A MINUTE LEFT.>>YEAH, THAT WAS A GOOD THROW DESPITE PRESSURE UP THE MIDDLE FROM ALLEN BAILEY. THE BALL’S THROWN. WIDE-OPEN T.Y. HILTON. THAT’S SIX CATCHES FOR HILTON AND 84 YARDS.>>AND HILTON WAS THE PLAYER THAT CAPPED OFF THAT IMPRESSIVE OPENING DRIVE FOR LUCK. AND SO BALL DOWN AT THE KANSAS CITY 43. AND LUCK BROUGHT DOWN BY JUSTIN HOUSTON. THE LATEST EXAMPLE OF HOW IMPORTANT HE HAS BEEN ON THAT KANSAS CITY DEFENSE. THEY STARTED OFF LIKE GANGBUSTERS DURING THE FIRST PART OF THE SEASON, THEN HOUSTON GOT HURT AND THEY KIND OF HAD TO FIND THEIR WAY.>>YEAH, AND WITHOUT HIS COUNTERPART, HALI HAS NOT BEEN AS EFFECTIVE EITHER.>>THAT WAS A LOSS OF 7. AND LUCK’S PASS IS PICKED OFF BY BRANDON FLOWERS. THE PRO BOWL CORNER WITH THE INTERCEPTION AND ANOTHER TURNOVER BY INDIANAPOLIS. SECOND OF THE GAME. AGAIN, A TEAM THAT LED THE NFL WITH THE FEWEST TURNOVERS.>>REMEMBER WE TALKED HOW THEY KICKED BRANDON FLOWERS INSIDE TODAY. HE’S GONNA READ THE EYES OF ANDREW LUCK AND PICK HIM BLIND. RIGHT, THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL MOVE. ANTICIPATING THE THROW AND FOLLOWING AND TRACKING THE EYES OF THE QUARTERBACK. THEY’RE IN ZONE. HE GETS HIS EYES BACK ON THE QUARTERBACK. MAKES A BEAUTIFUL CATCH.>>TOOK A HIT BY HIS OWN MAN, DERRICK JOHNSON, THERE. HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TURN IT INTO AN EVEN BIGGER INTERCEPTION RETURN. AND THE KANSAS CITY OFFENSE WITH 21 SECONDS LEFT HERE IS AT THE 45-YARD LINE. SMITH STUMBLES. AND JUST GETS BACK ACROSS THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. CLOCK STOPS WITH 13 SECONDS LEFT, AS A TIME-OUT IS CALLED BY THE CHIEFS. FIRST TEAM SINCE ’04 TO SCORE ON THE FIRST FIVE DRIVES OF A POSTSEASON GAME. AND TWO TURNOVERS BY CHUCK PAGANO’S TEAM ADDS UP TO A 31-10 LEAD FOR THE CHIEFS. AND THAT ONE COMPLETE TO DAVIS.>>GET OUT OF BOUNDS. AND HE GETS OUT OF BOUNDS. 5 SECONDS LEFT. JOSH McNARY ON THE STOP FOR INDIANAPOLIS.>>McNARY IS REALLY A COOL STORY. McNARY WAS THE ALL-TIME SACK LEADER AT ARMY. HAD 28 CAREER SACKS AND WAS AN OUTSIDE PLAYER. SERVED OUR COUNTRY FOR TWO YEARS. WENT TO A REGIONAL SCOUTING COMBINE SPONSORED BY THE NFL WHERE RYAN GRIGSON, THE G.M., SAW HIM RUN 4.71 AT 251 POUNDS AND SIGNED HIM. AND HE WAS ON THE PRACTICE SQUAD FOR 12 WEEKS, BEEN PLAYING MORE AND MORE AND BECOMING AN INTEGRAL PART OF THIS TEAM.>>FINAL PLAY OF THE FIRST HALF. SMITH JUST GONNA LOFT IT UP TOWARD THE END ZONE. INCOMPLETE. AND THAT’S THE WAY THE FIRST HALF WILL END. ALL KANSAS CITY IN THE FIRST HALF. THEY HAVE A 21-POINT LEAD OVER THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS, AS THE COLTS ARE AT HOME. AND, MIKE MAYOCK, A LOT OF PEOPLE WANTED TO MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF THE MATCHUP A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO WHEN, AT ARROWHEAD, INDIANAPOLIS HANDLED KANSAS CITY. YOU WEREN’T IN THAT CAMP.>>I JUST FELT LIKE KANSAS CITY’S GOT A LOT MORE FRONT-LINE TALENT AND MORE DEPTH. AND NOTHING WAS MORE EVIDENT. YOU LOSE YOUR BEST FOOTBALL PLAYER, JAMAAL CHARLES. KNILE DAVIS COMES IN. 12 CARRIES FOR 51 YARDS. IT’S BEEN ALL K.C.>>KANSAS CITY SCORED ON ITS FIRST FIVE POSSESSIONS — FOUR TOUCHDOWNS AND THE FIELD GOAL — TO HELP BUILD THIS 31-10 LEAD. INDIANAPOLIS WILL HAVE ITS FIRST CHANCE ON OFFENSE, AS BRAZILL HAULS IT IN. AND THE COLTS WILL BEGIN AT THE 20. LET’S SEND IT DOWN TO ALEX.>>HEY, DAN. WELL, ALEX SMITH WITH A NUMBER OF SUCCESSFUL QUARTERBACK SCRAMBLES IN THE FIRST HALF. HEAD COACH ANDY REID TELLING ME THAT WHEN PROTECTION BREAKS DOWN OR WHEN HE DOESN’T HAVE WHAT HE WANTS, THAT HE EXPECTS HIM TO CONTINUE TO TAKE OFF AND GO IN THE SECOND HALF. REID TELLING ME THAT HE’S CONFIDENT IN HIS ROOKIE RUNNING BACK, KNILE DAVIS, CARRYING THE BALL IN THE SECOND HALF. MEANWHILE, CHUCK PAGANO SAYS THAT HIS TEAM HAS GOT TO THROW THE BALL IN THE SECOND HALF, DOWN 31-10. HE SAYS THAT THEY’VE PROTECTED ANDREW LUCK WELL ENOUGH BUT THAT THEY HAVE TO DO A BETTER JOB OF EXECUTING IN THE SECOND HALF AND THAT TURNOVERS AND THE BIG PLAYS HAVE KILLED THEM.>>OKAY, THANK YOU, ALEX. AND LUCK BEGINS WITH A PASS. AND ANOTHER INTERCEPTION. STEPPING UP IN FRONT IS HUSAIN ABDULLAH. SECOND PICK BY LUCK. THIRD TURNOVER OF THE GAME.>>THAT’S A HORRIBLE DECISION AND THROW BY ANDREW LUCK. IT’S A TWO-DEEP SHELL WITH MAN COVERAGE UNDERNEATH. ABDULLAH IS MAN-TO-MAN, AND HE’S JUST GONNA STEP IN FRONT. TWO DEEP. MAN COVERAGE. STEPS UNDER IT. HECK OF A PLAY BY ABDULLAH, AND A REALLY BAD READ AND THROW BY LUCK.>>LUCK HAS THROWN INTERCEPTIONS ON HIS LAST TWO PASSES. AND FOR A GUY WHO SEEMINGLY IS BUILT FOR THE POSTSEASON, WHEN YOU GOT TO TAKE CARE OF THE FOOTBALL, BE CAREFUL WITH IT, GIVE YOUR TEAM A CHANCE IN THE END, LUCK HAS GIVEN IT AWAY IN HIS LAST TWO PASSES.>>YEAH, HE FORCED THAT ONE. NO DOUBT.>>AND SO ALEX SMITH SET UP RIGHT AWAY. AND OUT TO McCLUSTER. AND SO THEY START OFF THE GAME IN A WAY YOU JUST CAN’T IN THE SECOND HALF.>>AND I MADE THE STATEMENT AT THE TOP THAT I THOUGHT HE WAS THE BEST YOUNG QUARTERBACK IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. AND I THINK FRUSTRATION IS GETTING THE BETTER OF HIM RIGHT NOW. HECK OF A PLAY BY ABDULLAH.>>AND THAT’S WHERE LUCK HAD CLEANED UP HIS GAME EVEN MORE FROM LAST YEAR. HE HAD 18 INTERCEPTIONS IN HIS ROOKIE YEAR, NINE THIS YEAR COMING INTO THIS POSTSEASON. TWO ALREADY. AND ON SECOND DOWN AND 5, IT’S DAVIS. AGAIN, IN FOR JAMAAL CHARLES. AND WHEN JAMAAL CHARLES WENT DOWN ON THE SIXTH PLAY OF THE GAME, IT LOOKED BLEAK FOR KANSAS CITY, DIDN’T IT? A GUY THAT REPRESENTS THAT MUCH OFFENSE FOR KANSAS CITY, SO CRUCIAL TO THEIR TEAM.>>I MEAN, KNILE DAVIS HAD 12 CARRIES FOR 52 IN THE FIRST HALF. HE ALSO CAUGHT FOUR PASSES. SO, EFFECTIVELY STEPPING INTO THE ROLE OF JAMAAL CHARLES.>>THIRD AND 2. BALL AT THE INDIANAPOLIS 10. SMITH AVOIDS PRESSURE AGAIN. THOSE QUICK FEET. AND DELIVERS THE SCORING PASS TO DAVIS.>>WOW, HE REALLY — AGAIN, WE JUST SHOWED WHAT HE DID IN THE FIRST HALF. HE KIND OF BAITED THE SAFETY, ANTOINE BETHEA. BETHEA HAD MAN COVERAGE. YOU’RE GONNA SEE 41 OVER HERE. HE’S GOT MAN COVERAGE ON KNILE DAVIS. WHEN YOU BREAK THE POCKET, NOW HE’S IN NO-MAN’S-LAND. DO YOU COME UP AND GET THE QUARTERBACK OR DO YOU STAY WITH YOUR MAN? AND THE OLD NFL MANTRA IS, DO YOUR JOB. AND YOUR JOB’S TO COVER HIM, SO YOU HAVE TO STAY WITH HIM.>>AND ALEX SMITH, WHO DID A GREAT JOB OF AVOIDING THE PRESSURE, TOSSES HIS FOURTH TOUCHDOWN OF THE GAME, THIS ONE TO DAVIS. AND NOW IT IS REALLY WIDE OPEN. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THIS AFTER INDIANAPOLIS WON ITS FINAL THREE GAMES OF THE REGULAR SEASON AND KANSAS CITY LOST FIVE OF SEVEN COMING INTO THESE PLAYOFFS? INDIANAPOLIS WAS THE SLIGHT FAVORITE HERE AT HOME. AND FIND THEMSELVES IN A DEEP HOLE, AS THEY’LL COME OUT TO THE 20 WHERE THEIR LATEST TRY, AS KANSAS CITY TACKS ON MORE POINTS JUST MOMENTS INTO THE THIRD QUARTER.>>I KIND OF FEEL LIKE BOB SUTTON, THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR IN KANSAS CITY, HAS VERY QUIETLY DONE A GREAT JOB FOR THIS TEAM. NOW, HERE’S A GUY THAT’S 62 YEARS OLD. HE’S BEEN A SUCCESSFUL HEAD COACH AT ARMY. HE GOES TO THE NEW YORK JETS AS A LINEBACKER COACH, WHERE HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME WITH REX RYAN, AND I WANT TO DEVELOP THAT STORY AFTER THIS PLAY.>>AND SUTTON GETTING THE FULL COMPLEMENT OF HIS TALENTED DEFENSE BACK HERE — AS DONALD BROWN GETS THE CALL — SO WE’VE REALLY BEEN ABLE TO SEE SUTTON’S KIND OF FULL HAND HERE.>>YEAH, WE ASKED HIM YESTERDAY, YOU KNOW, “WHAT ABOUT THE REX RYAN INFLUENCE? DID YOU LEARN ANYTHING FROM HIM?” AND HERE HE IS AT AGE 62, AND HE SAID, “YEAH!” QUICK SNAP.>>SECOND AND 7. LUCK GOES TO THE AIR. HE’S GOT HILTON, WHO AVOIDS ONE DEFENDER AND PICKS UP THE FIRST DOWN AFTER A GAIN OF 10. KENDRICK LEWIS ON THE STOP.>>YEAH, HE SAID, “I LEARNED THAT I HAVE TO BE A FEARLESS PLAY CALLER. MAKE THE OFFENSE WORRY ABOUT YOU.” YOU CAN BE AFRAID TO CALL BLITZES, AND BOB SUTTON HAS GOTTEN MUCH MORE AGGRESSIVE AS A DEFENSIVE PLAY CALLER.>>HE TOLD US YESTERDAY, “WE HAVE TO AFFECT LUCK.” LUCK’S ALREADY THROWN TWO PICKS. A LITTLE SMOOTHER START TO THIS DRIVE, AS DONALD BROWN GETS IT OUT OF THE BACKFIELD AND PICKS UP A FIRST DOWN FOR INDIANAPOLIS. DONALD BROWN COUNTED ON THIS YEAR WHEN VICK BALLARD, AHMAD BRADSHAW WENT DOWN EARLY, AMONG THOSE KEY INJURIES ON OFFENSE FOR INDIANAPOLIS. AND LUCK AVOIDS THE PRESSURE AND HAULS IT DOWNFIELD. AND HAULED IN BY DA’RICK ROGERS. WHAT A CATCH BY THE ROOKIE OUT OF TENNESSEE TECH.>>WOW. HEAVY PRESSURE. NICE JOB PUTTING THE BALL UP AND GIVING YOUR WIDE RECEIVER AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A PLAY. BOTH THESE GUYS ARE 6’3″. DA’RICK ROGERS GOES UP AND TAKES IT AWAY FROM SEAN SMITH. HE WAS UNDRAFTED OUT OF TENNESSEE TECH BECAUSE OF OFF-THE-FIELD ISSUES, BUT THIS KID HAS FIRST- OR SECOND-ROUND TALENT.>>PROTOTYPE WIDE RECEIVER. BIG, LONG ARMS, AND IT JUST PAID OFF THERE. THIS IS DONALD BROWN, WHO WALTZES INTO THE END ZONE FOR THE COLT TOUCHDOWN. SO LUCAS OIL WAKES UP A LITTLE BIT.>>ROOKIE THIRD-ROUND PICK HUGH THORNTON GETS UP IN THE HOLE. AND WATCH DONALD BROWN GET SKINNY THROUGH THERE. GETS SKINNY, DUCKS DOWN, EXPLODES INTO THE END ZONE. ALL OF A SUDDEN, DANNY, A LITTLE LIFE IN THIS PLACE, HUH?>>DA’RICK ROGERS WITH A HUGE GAIN. AND THEN DONALD BROWN, WHO WAS NUMBER THREE ON THE DEPTH CHART TO START THE YEAR, BEHIND BRADSHAW AND VICK BALLARD WHEN THOSE INJURIES SET IN. ADAM VINATIERI TACKS ON THE EXTRA POINT. 38-17 NOW. LITTLE MORE LIFE IN THE BUILDING HERE AT LUCAS OIL, BUT THE COLTS STILL IN A DEEP HOLE. 38-17. KANSAS CITY WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO ANSWER LUCK’S BIG STRIKE TO ROGERS AND THE ENSUING TOUCHDOWN BY DONALD BROWN. PAT McAFEE WITH THE KICK. TAKEN BY QUINTIN DEMPS. SPECIAL TEAMS HAVE BEEN OUTSTANDING. SO HERE’S ALEX SMITH AND THE CHIEFS FROM THEIR OWN 22. AND AGAIN SMITH IS ON THE RUN. HE’S BEEN DOING A LOT OF DANCING IN THE BACKFIELD TODAY. HAS BEEN ABLE TO AVOID, FOR THE MOST PART, THE COLTS’ DEFENDERS, BUT HE’S DROPPED THERE. FOUR TOUCHDOWN PASSES, IT WAS MENTIONED EARLIER, FOR SMITH, A CHIEFS RECORD FOR A POSTSEASON GAME, AS WELL AS THESE 38 POINTS THAT THEY’VE ALREADY CHALKED UP.>>I DON’T THINK THEY’VE WON A POSTSEASON GAME SINCE JOE MONTANA.>>YEAH, THAT’S HOW LONG IT’S BEEN. 20 YEARS. SINCE THEN, SEVEN STRAIGHT POSTSEASON DISAPPOINTMENTS. SMITH WITH PLAY-ACTION. THIS PASS COMPLETE FOR THE FIRST DOWN TO JUNIOR HEMINGWAY. SO AFTER SMITH GETS DROPPED FOR THE 2-YARD LOSS, HEMINGWAY PICKS UP THE FIRST DOWN.>>AND A NICE JOB AGAIN BECAUSE THIS TIME MATHIS WAS WORKING ON THE LEFT TACKLE, WAS CLOSING IN ON THE QUARTERBACK, AND ALEX SMITH GOT RID OF THE FOOTBALL AGAIN QUICKLY. BRANDEN ALBERT PUSHES HIM UP THE FIELD. BALL’S THROWN BEAUTIFULLY. MAN COVERAGE BY ANTOINE BETHEA. ALL THE “GAME MANAGER” STUFF ABOUT ALEX SMITH, AND I THINK HE’S REALLY STEPPED IT UP HERE IN THE PLAYOFFS. I’M VERY, VERY EXCITED TO WATCH HIM.>>THIS TIME SETS IT UP FOR KNILE DAVIS, AND HE’S GOT ANOTHER FIRST DOWN. AGAIN, JAMAAL CHARLES OUT WITH A CONCUSSION. BY THE WAY, DONNIE AVERY, THE WIDE RECEIVER FOR ALEX SMITH, ALSO IS BEING EVALUATED FOR A CONCUSSION. NEVERTHELESS, KANSAS CITY HASN’T MISSED A BEAT, AS ANDY REID TRIES TO WIN FOR THE FIRST TIME HERE IN THE POSTSEASON FOR KANSAS CITY AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS WITH THE EAGLES. HE TOOK PHILADELPHIA TO FIVE NFC TITLE GAMES, ONE SUPER BOWL. 10-9 IN HIS DAYS IN PHILADELPHIA IN THE PLAYOFFS. DAVIS THE BUSY MAN, BUT CHARLES OUT. HAS A TOUCHDOWN ON THE GROUND AND THROUGH THE AIR.>>TAKE A LOOK AT THAT BODY, OKAY? HE WAS A THIRD-ROUND DRAFT PICK THIS YEAR BECAUSE HE’S 227 POUNDS, HE RUNS SUB-4.5. HE’S GOT ALL THE TALENT IN THE WORLD, BUT WE TALKED ABOUT THE FUMBLING AND THE DURABILITY ISSUES AT ARKANSAS. I SPOKE WITH ANDY REID THIS SUMMER ABOUT HIM, AND HE LOVED HIS WORK ETHIC THIS SUMMER. THE KID FUMBLED TWICE TWO WEEKS AGO, AND WHEN WE ASKED ANDY YESTERDAY IF THAT WOULD AFFECT HOW HE USED HIM, HE SAID, “HECK NO. HE’S FINE. WE TRUST HIM.”>>ROBERT MATHIS LOOKING TO BECOME MORE OF A FACTOR HERE IN THE SECOND HALF, AND HERE COMES MATHIS TO ALEX SMITH’S RIGHT. AND THERE’S MATHIS, AND HE FORCES THE FUMBLE! AND THE COLTS SCRAMBLING AFTER IT.>>IT’S A GREAT CALL, DANNY.>>KELVIN SHEPPARD CHASED IT OUT, BUT IT WAS ROBERT MATHIS, WITH 19 1/2 SACKS TO LEAD THE NFL, ALSO A PART OF HIS RéSUMé IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAW THERE — FORCED FUMBLES ON THE RUN.>>THEY’RE GONNA TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.>>THE RULING ON THE FIELD WAS A FUMBLE AND RECOVERED IN BOUNDS AT THE SIDELINE BY NUMBER 52. FIRST DOWN, INDIANAPOLIS.>>KELVIN SHEPPARD.>>WATCH THE END OF THIS RIGHT HERE. DOES HE HAVE FULL POSSESSION BEFORE ANYTHING HITS OUT OF BOUNDS? BECAUSE IF HE DOESN’T, IT’LL GO BACK TO KANSAS CITY. HERE YOU GO. RIGHT HERE. IT’S BETWEEN HIS ELBOWS. IT’S ON THE GROUND. IF HE POSSESSES IT BEFORE ROLLING OUT OF BOUNDS — AND I THINK HE DID — IT’LL STAY WITH INDIANAPOLIS.>>LOOKED LIKE HE HAD IT. AGAIN, THE CALL ON THE FIELD IS A RECOVERY FOR THE COLTS. THEY’RE REVIEWING THIS. AND WHILE THEY REVIEW IT, WE’LL TAKE A TIME-OUT AND BE RIGHT BACK WITH THE DECISION. AGAIN, THE CALL ON THE FIELD IS A COLTS FUMBLE RECOVERY. AS THEY ARE STILL CHECKING THIS OUT, REMEMBER IT HAS TO BE CONCLUSIVE TO TURN IT AROUND.>>HE HAS TO HAVE FULL POSSESSION PRIOR TO TOUCHING OUT OF BOUNDS, AND I STILL HAVEN’T SEEN AN ANGLE — I’D LOVE TO SEE ONE RIGHT DOWN THE SIDELINE — THAT SHOWS ME OTHERWISE. SEE, THE BALL’S BETWEEN HIS KNEES RIGHT THERE.>>AND THERE MIGHT JUST NOT BE ENOUGH VIDEO EVIDENCE HERE TO TURN IT AROUND.>>THAT’S THE WAY I FEEL. BUT I THINK IT’S A GOOD CHALLENGE.>>COLTS HOPING IT TURNS INTO KANSAS CITY’S FIRST TURNOVER OF THE DAY. WHAT RELENTLESS PRESSURE THERE BY ROBERT MATHIS COMING AROUND THE CORNER.>>AFTER REVIEWING THE PLAY, THE RULING ON THE FIELD STANDS AS CALLED. FIRST DOWN.>>SO THE FUMBLE RECOVERY, AND ROBERT MATHIS CAUSED IT.>>HE’S SO RELENTLESS. ONE OF THE REASONS HE’S AS GOOD AS HE IS. HE GETS DOUBLE-TEAMED. FIRST FASANO. THEN COMES THE SECOND — THE GUARD, ALLEN. AND WATCH HIM. HE JUST KEEPS TRACKING HIM. ALEX SMITH HAS NO IDEA THAT HE’S BEING TRACKED BY ROBERT MATHIS. THAT’S HIS NINTH FORCED FUMBLE OF THE SEASON.>>AND INDIANAPOLIS NEEDED A TURNOVER AND GOT IT. AND THEY’RE AT THE KANSAS CITY 41. LUCK HANGING IN THE POCKET. GOING DEEP DOWNFIELD TOWARD THE END ZONE. HE WAS LOOKING FOR HILTON, AND THERE’S A FLAG BACK TOWARD THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE.>>ILLEGAL FORMATION. NUMBER 74, OFFENSE. WAS ON THE END OF THE LINE, UNCOVERED. 5-YARD PENALTY. STILL FIRST DOWN.>>ON ANTHONY CASTONZO, THE LEFT TACKLE.>>HOW ABOUT THAT PLAY CALL, HUH, FROM ALL OF A SUDDEN THE MOMENTUM SWING — THERE’S MATHIS.>>IS THAT YOUR DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR?>>YES, IT IS. I’VE WATCHED A BUNCH OF THEIR TAPE, AND I JUST AM BLOWN AWAY BY HIS TALENT, HIS WORK ETHIC, AND THE FACT THAT HE’S SUCH A GREAT LEADER ON THIS TEAM.>>AND DOING THIS AT THE AGE OF 32. SO FIRST AND 15, AS THE COLTS ARE BACKED UP. AND LUCK GOING NEAR SIDE, AND IT’S COMPLETE TO HILTON.>>LITTLE BUST THERE IN THE KANSAS CITY COVERAGE. SEAN SMITH AND BRANDON FLOWERS BOTH GO INSIDE. SMITH WITH THE CHUCK OUTSIDE. LOOK, HERE AND HERE. THEY’RE BOTH JUMPING INSIDE. T.Y. HILTON, WHO’S BEEN THE BEST PLAYER FOR THE COLTS ALL DAY, WIDE OPEN OUTSIDE.>>AND HE’S GOT ANOTHER 100-PLUS-YARD GAME RECEIVING. HE’S AT 110 YARDS NOW. PICKS UP A KEY FIRST DOWN. LUCK STEPS UP, AND HE DELIVERS TO HILTON AGAIN. T.Y. HILTON. HAD A GOOD CONVERSATION WITH HIM YESTERDAY. OUT OF FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL. AND THE WAY HE DECIDED TO GO TO FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL WAS HILARIOUS. HE SAID HIS YOUNG INFANT SON WAS ON A BED, CRAWLED TO A HAT OF FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL ON THE BED, WHAT, SOME EIGHT TIMES IN A ROW OVER WESTERN VIRGINIA. THAT’S HOW HE CHOSE HIS COLLEGE.>>I’D HATE TO BE WEST VIRGINIA AND LOSE BECAUSE OF THAT.>>SECOND DOWN AND 2 AFTER THE GAIN OF 8 BY HILTON. AND LUCK TO THE AIR. FIRST AND GOAL, INDIANAPOLIS, AS HE CONNECTS WITH BRAZILL FOR A GAIN OF 19.>>THAT’S WHAT WE EXPECTED TO SEE FROM ANDREW LUCK. LaVON BRAZILL’S GONNA WIN INSIDE. THE BALL COMES OUT ON TIME IN BETWEEN THE CORNER AND THE SAFETY. SO THE WIDE RECEIVER HAS TO BEAT THE CORNER AND GET INSIDE. THE CORNERBACK HAS TO BEAT THE SAFETY. AND THERE YOU SEE 29, ERIC BERRY, THE SAFETY, COMING IN LATE.>>SO ON FIRST AND GOAL, LUCK LOOKING FOR FLEENER. INCOMPLETE. BUT YOU COULD REALLY SENSE HOW THE COLTS’ OFFENSE HAS ALL OF A SUDDEN REDISCOVERED THAT RHYTHM THAT THEY HAD IN THE OPENING DRIVE. AND AGAIN, THIS WAS ALL CAUSED BY ROBERT MATHIS, WHO STRIPPED ALEX SMITH. HIT FLEENER IN THE HANDS. YOU GOT TO CATCH THAT, RIGHT?>>SURE DO. NOW, YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT A 21-POINT DEFICIT. THEY’VE GOT TO SCORE 7 HERE. THERE’S PLENTY OF TIME. CHUCK PAGANO’S GUYS CAN CLIMB BACK INTO THIS FOOTBALL GAME, BUT THEY HAVE TO CONVERT HERE.>>SINCE HIS TWO STRAIGHT INTERCEPTIONS, LUCK IS 6 FOR 7. 7 FOR 8. DONALD BROWN TRYING TO GET IN. TOUCHDOWN, COLTS!>>THEY GET A QUAD LOOK. FOUR PLAYERS OUT THERE. IT’S HURRY-UP, AND IT’S A BUBBLE SCREEN. KANSAS CITY GETTING OUT THERE LATE. DONALD BROWN GETS IT. LOOK AT NUMBER 81, DARRIUS HEYWARD-BEY, TAKING TWO KANSAS CITY PLAYERS INTO THE SIDELINE. GREAT BLOCK BY HEYWARD-BEY.>>SO ALL OF A SUDDEN DONALD BROWN HAS BACK-TO-BACK TOUCHDOWNS, AS THE COLTS WERE DOWN 38-10 MOMENTS INTO THE SECOND HALF AND NOW HAVE TURNED IT INTO A TWO-SCORE GAME HERE.>>THERE’S AN INJURY. BRANDON FLOWERS DOWN.>>THAT IS BRANDON FLOWERS DOWN.>>OH, BOY. RIGHT TO THE LOCKER ROOM.>>FLOWERS LOOKS LIKE HE IS ON HIS WAY TO AN EVALUATION. AND SO ANDY REID NOW WITHOUT THREE PLAYERS, AND THESE ARE KEY PLAYERS, ESPECIALLY JAMAAL CHARLES AND DONNIE AVERY, AND NOW FLOWERS MAKING HIS WAY OUT. SO, HUGE, BIG-TIME TURNAROUND OF THE FEEL OF THIS GAME.>>AND THERE’S PLENTY OF TIME. AND AFTER THE CONVERSION, IT’S GOING TO BE A 14-POINT DEFICIT. AND THERE’S CLYDE CHRISTENSEN, THE QUARTERBACK COACH, SITTING WITH ANDREW LUCK. AND TRUST ME, EVEN THOUGH HE HASN’T PLAYED A GREAT GAME, THAT KID IS GONNA HANG IN THERE, HANG IN THERE. AND IF HE HAS A CHANCE TO WIN IT IN THE FOURTH QUARTER, HE JUST MIGHT DO IT.>>YEAH, HE’S GOT A TRACK RECORD THAT SHOWS THAT ALREADY IN TWO YEARS HERE IN INDIANAPOLIS, AND ALSO AT STANFORD, WHERE LUCK WAS ALL ABOUT CLUTCH PERFORMANCES LATE IN THE GAME TO PULL GAMES OUT. AND KANSAS CITY HAS FOUND OUT THAT THE COLTS ARE ALIVE AND WELL, DOWN JUST A COUPLE OF SCORES, 38-24. THIS IS QUINTIN DEMPS COMING OUT FOR KANSAS CITY. AND HE’S HIT HARD. ANOTHER PLAYER DOWN FOR KANSAS CITY. THAT IS JUNIOR HEMINGWAY. SO HEMINGWAY ABLE TO MAKE HIS WAY OFF THE FIELD, AND CLEARING THE WAY FOR THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS. AND A LITTLE NOISE BEING MADE HERE AT LUCAS OIL STADIUM FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A WHILE. CHIEFS BEGINNING FROM THEIR OWN 20. KNILE DAVIS, NOT MUCH. DRIVEN BACK BY THAT REJUVENATED COLT DEFENSE. KAVELL CONNER LEADING THE WAY.>>GREG MANUSKY, THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, PLAYED FOR KANSAS CITY YEARS AGO IN HIS PLAYING CAREER. HE’S AN OLD-SCHOOL, TOUGH FOOTBALL COACH, AND I REALLY RESPECT THE WAY HE’S BROUGHT ALONG SOME OF THESE YOUNG GUYS.>>SMITH’S GONNA RUN IT AGAIN. WORKING HIS WAY BACK UP. NOT MUCH THERE. THAT’LL BRING UP THIRD DOWN. AND MANUSKY AND THE COLTS’ DEFENSE NOW LIKING WHAT THEY SEE. IT’S JUST BEEN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT GAME IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES. REMEMBER, KANSAS CITY SCORED IN THE FIRST OPENING MOMENTS OF THE SECOND HALF. HOW ABOUT THAT OUTFIT?>>[ LAUGHS ] I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW YOU SEE.>>QUICK HIT. INCOMPLETE. AND THE BALL WAS JUST HOVERING ABOVE THE FIELD FOR A SECOND OR TWO, AS IT WAS INTENDED FOR DWAYNE BOWE. AND THAT’LL BRING UP FOURTH DOWN AND THE PUNTING UNIT FOR KANSAS CITY.>>GREG TOLER IS OUT OF THE GAME. JOSH GORDY, 27, IN.>>LOOK AT THE BALL. GOES OFF OF HIS FOOT.>>OFF THE HEEL, INTO THE AIR. LANDRY ALMOST COMES UP WITH IT.>>THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOME CIRCUS INTERCEPTION, HUH? SO GRIFF WHALEN IS BACK TO RECEIVE KANSAS CITY’S FIRST PUNT OF THE DAY. AND WHALEN CALLS FOR THE FAIR CATCH, SO INDIANAPOLIS WILL TRY TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM IN ITS DIRECTION STARTING AT ITS OWN 28. ANOTHER PLAYER DOWN. THAT IS DARRIUS HEYWARD-BEY ON HIS KNEES AT THE 45-YARD LINE. LUCK BEGINS THIS DRIVE. AND HILTON HAD IT, BUT THEN IT WAS TAKEN OUT OF HIS ARMS BY HUSAIN ABDULLAH. AND YET ANOTHER INTERCEPTION FOR LUCK.>>LET’S SEE IF HE HAS POSSESSION PRIOR TO GOING OUT OF BOUNDS. THE BALL’S THROWN A LITTLE BIT BEHIND THE INTENDED RECEIVER. YOU SEE HOW IT’S BEHIND? NOW IT’S IN THE AIR. I THINK HE’S GOT POSSESSION ALL THE WAY THROUGH, AND THAT’S A PICK. T.Y. HILTON POPS UP IN THE AIR. ABDULLAH CATCHES IT. BOTH FEET DOWN WITH POSSESSION. THAT’S A TURNOVER. AND THAT’S A BAD THROW. WAY BEHIND THE INTENDED RECEIVER.>>LUCK’S THIRD INTERCEPTION TODAY, AFTER THROWING NINE ALL REGULAR SEASON. AND ALL THAT MOMENTUM WE’VE JUST TALKED ABOUT — POOF.>>ABDULLAH PLAYING EXTREMELY WELL TODAY. SO NOW KANSAS CITY AND ALEX SMITH TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE LATEST LUCK PICK. FROM THE COLT 28. PASS CAUGHT BY BOWE, WHO’S BEEN PRETTY QUIET SINCE THAT BIG GAIN EARLIER IN THE GAME. VONTAE DAVIS ON THE COVERAGE.>>I REALLY LIKE THE WAY THAT ALEX SMITH IS WORKING THE POCKET TODAY. HE’S FEELING PRESSURE. HE’S STEPPING UP. HIS EYES, FOR THE MOST PART, ARE STAYING UP AND LOCATING SECONDARY AND TERTIARY RECEIVERS. IT’S ONE OF THE BEST GAMES I’VE SEEN HIM PLAY.>>SECOND AND 6. DAVIS. MAYBE A YARD ON THE FORWARD PROGRESS. LaRON LANDRY LED THE CHARGE FOR INDIANAPOLIS. AND THAT’LL BRING UP THIRD DOWN.>>FOUR TURNOVERS FOR INDY. ONE FOR KANSAS CITY. HERE’S WHERE YOU’VE GOT TO PROTECT THE FOOTBALL. NO INTERCEPTIONS, NO FUMBLES, NO STRIP SACKS. WORST-CASE SCENARIO, YOU’VE GOT TO KICK A FIELD GOAL.>>IT’LL BE THIRD AND 6 FROM THE 24. HERE COMES THE PRESSURE. SMITH GETS RID OF IT. AND THAT’LL BRING UP FOURTH DOWN AND A FIELD-GOAL ATTEMPT.>>THEY BRING McNARY OFF THE DEFENSIVE RIGHT SIDE. GONNA SEE FROM OVER HERE, HERE COMES 57, McNARY. HE GETS A PIECE OF KNILE DAVIS. THE PLAY AT THAT POINT IS COUNTERFEIT, AND A BIG STAND BY THEIR DEFENSE.>>SO RYAN SUCCOP, WHO HAD A 19-YARD FIELD-GOAL CHIP SHOT IN THE FIRST QUARTER, HERE TO ATTEMPT A 42-YARDER, AS WHISTLES COME IN AND A TIME-OUT IS CALLED BY THE COLTS. TALKED ABOUT CANDIDATES — PLAYERS OF THE YEAR AND SO FORTH. WHAT ABOUT ANDY REID AS COACH OF THE YEAR IN THIS TURNAROUND FOR KANSAS CITY, 2-14 LAST YEAR, AND WHAT HE’S DONE FOR THE CHIEFS?>>YEAH, HE’S NOT HAPPY BECAUSE HE THOUGHT THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN A PENALTY FOR 12 MEN ON THE FIELD PRIOR TO THE TIME-OUT.>>SO THAT WAS THE LENGTHY DISCUSSION OUT THERE WITH THE OFFICIALS, BUT HERE IS SUCCOP FOR THE 42-YARD ATTEMPT FINALLY. MISSED ONE FROM 41 YARDS OUT AGAIN LAST WEEK, WHICH WOULD HAVE WON THE GAME AGAINST THE CHARGERS. THIS ONE HOOKING A LITTLE LEFT BUT INSIDE THE UPRIGHT. AND ANDY REID A YEAR REMOVED FROM THAT 2-14 SEASON, HIS FIRST YEAR HERE IN KANSAS CITY, LEADING THE WAY. AND ALEX SMITH COMING OVER FROM SAN FRANCISCO. AND BRAZILL COMING ON WITH IT FOR THE COLTS. SO, MIKE, WE’VE TALKED A LOT ABOUT MOMENTUM THIS GAME. THE COLTS LOOKED LIKE THEY HAD IT, AND LUCK WITH ANOTHER INTERCEPTION.>>YOU CAN’T WIN AGAINST GOOD FOOTBALL TEAMS WHEN YOU TURN THE FOOTBALL OVER. LUCK GOES TO WORK THROUGH THE AIR. DONALD BROWN HAS IT. AND HE’S GOT A FIRST DOWN AND MORE. ALL THE WAY UP TO THE 45-YARD LINE BEFORE HE’S BROUGHT DOWN BY ERIC BERRY.>>I THINK THIS GUY HAS VERY QUIETLY HAD A GOOD SEASON.>>YOU TALKED ABOUT KNILE DAVIS AND HIS PROPENSITY TO TURN THE BALL OVER. HOW ABOUT DONALD BROWN, WHO HAS NEVER LOST A FUMBLE IN HIS NFL CAREER?>>HE’S A FORMER FIRST-ROUND PICK, AND WHEN THEY TRADED FOR TRENT RICHARDSON, EVERYBODY THOUGHT HE’D BECOME OBSOLETE. WELL, HE HASN’T.>>LUCK AVOIDS — JUST SIDESTEPS A DEFENDER AND GETS IT TO BRAZILL. AND BRAZILL IN THE OPEN FIELD DOWN TO THE 25-YARD LINE OF KANSAS CITY. LUCK JUST KIND OF SKIRTED THE DEFENDER BEFORE HE HOOKED UP FOR A 30-YARD GAIN TO NUMBER 15.>>AND HE’S HURRYING THIS THING UP. HE WANTS UP-TEMPO. THIS IS ONE — HE’S OVER THE LINE ALREADY.>>LUCK. BACK UP TOP TO DA’RICK ROGERS, WHO HAD THE BIG GAIN EARLIER OF 46 YARDS. SEAN SMITH DEFENDING THE 6’3″ ROGERS.>>ROGERS HAD A CHANCE TO MAKE A PLAY THERE. NOW, ON THAT LAST PLAY, YOU EITHER KIND OF FEEL THIS OR YOU DON’T. HE MAKES ALLEN BAILEY MISS, TUCKS IT AWAY, DRAWS EVERYONE UP, AND THEN FLIPS IT OUT TO BRAZILL. AND THAT’S A LITTLE BIT LIKE A RUSSELL WILSON PLAY, AND I BELIEVE THESE GUYS EITHER FEEL IT INNATELY OR YOU DON’T.>>AND, AGAIN, THIS IS A QUARTERBACK THAT’S 6’4″, 240. STRONGER AND FASTER THAN YOU THINK. DONALD BROWN RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE. DOWN CLOSE TO THE 12-YARD LINE. KENDRICK LEWIS ON THE TACKLE.>>THERE’S A DRAW PLAY. GREAT BLOCKING UP FRONT. AND LUCK’S GOT THIS THING GOING IN HYPERSPEED RIGHT NOW.>>ANOTHER FIRST DOWN. LUCK LOOKING RIGHT. AND THAT BALL IN AND OFF THE ARMS OF DONALD BROWN.>>WE HAVEN’T MENTIONED DONTARI POE TONIGHT, WHO I THINK HAS BECOME ONE OF THE BEST FOOTBALL PLAYERS IN THE NFL. I THOUGHT HE HAD A HUGE ADVANTAGE IN ATHLETIC ABILITY OVER THAT FRONT FROM INDIANAPOLIS, BUT THEY’VE DONE A NICE JOB KEEPING HIM OUT OF ANDREW LUCK’S FACE.>>TO THE END ZONE — TOUCHDOWN! TO COBY FLEENER.>>THEY’RE IN A ZONE HERE. FLEENER’S GOING RIGHT DOWN THE SEAM. ONCE HE CLEARS DERRICK JOHNSON, THE BALL’S THROWN OVER JOHNSON’S HEAD. AND THE DEFENSIVE BACKS DO NOT HAVE TIME TO GET THERE.>>SO THAT IS A HUGE SCORE FOR INDIANAPOLIS, WHO CAN CUT THE LEAD TO 10. REMEMBER, THEY GOT AWAY WITH A FIELD GOAL FOR KANSAS CITY, SO THEY’RE INCHING CLOSER — THE CLOSEST THEY HAVE BEEN IN A WHILE.>>AS BADLY AS ANDREW LUCK HAS PLAYED — AND I HAVEN’T SEEN HIM PLAY THIS BADLY — HE JUST KEEPS COMING BACK FIRING.>>OFFENSE THIS HALF IN BIG-TIME FAVOR OF THE COLTS. AND STILL 2 1/2 LEFT IN THE THIRD. PLENTY OF TIME FOR THE COLTS TO MAKE IT REALLY DRAMATIC HERE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER. TELL YOU WHAT, WHO ALSO REPRESENTS THAT NEVER-QUIT ATTITUDE FOR THE COLTS — CHUCK PAGANO ON THE SIDELINES.>>HE’S THE LEADER OF THIS WHOLE BUILDING THEY HAVE HERE.>>BEEN AN INSPIRATION TO THIS TEAM AND THIS TOWN. THIS IS QUINTIN DEMPS GETTING SPUN AROUND JUST PAST THE 15-YARD LINE. JOSH McNARY, THE FORMER MAN FROM ARMY, WITH THE SPECIAL-TEAMS TACKLE. AND ALEX SMITH AND KANSAS CITY WILL TRY TO SEIZE BACK SOME MOMENTUM. THIS DRIVE GONNA BEGIN JUST SHORT OF THE 20, AT THE 19.>>IF THEY GO THREE-AND-OUT, THIS PLACE IS GONNA EXPLODE.>>SMITH. CAUGHT. DWAYNE BOWE. SMITH WAS FEELING MORE PRESSURE UP THE MIDDLE, BUT HE GETS IT AWAY FOR 21 YARDS. DARIUS BUTLER ON THE COVERAGE FOR THE COLTS.>>YEAH, THEY’RE BRINGING A FULL BLITZ. HERE COMES FREEMAN HERE. ANOTHER LINEBACKER HERE. BALL COMES OUT QUICKLY AGAINST MAN-TO-MAN COVERAGE, BOWE BEATING BUTLER. AND GREG MANUSKY’S CHALLENGING THEM, AND I’LL TELL YOU WHAT — YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE KANSAS CITY CREDIT. THAT’S WELL DONE.>>BOWE IS OVER THE 100-YARD MARK. FIVE CATCHES FOR 106 YARDS. PRO BOWLER FROM A COUPLE OF SEASONS AGO. AND KANSAS CITY UP TO THE 40. SMITH DUMPS IT OUT TO DAVIS. AND HE’S MET IMMEDIATELY BY JERRELL FREEMAN. AND THE FORMER SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDER WAS ON HIM.>>BEST THING HE DOES IS RUN. HE’S A 4.5 GUY. HE’S NOT A DOWNHILL THUMPER. LOOK AT HIM TAKE OFF. HE RUNS LIKE A RUNNING BACK.>>GRIGSON HAD A BEAD ON HIM, SIGNED HIM, AND HE’S BEEN COMING UP BIG ALL YEAR. SECOND AND 11. SMITH COMING UP BIG, GETTING INTO COLT TERRITORY, AND PICKING UP THE FIRST DOWN. SO SMITH QUIETS THE CROWD DOWN WITH A GAIN OF 13.>>THAT’S A DESIGNED, A PLANNED QUARTERBACK KEEP. AND DWAYNE BOWE, THE WIDEOUT, MAKES A KEY BLOCK. WATCH THE FAKE TO KNILE DAVIS, AND LOOK AT WALDEN GO INSIDE. AND NOW THE BLOCK OUTSIDE BY BOWE. WELL DESIGNED, AND EVEN BETTER EXECUTION.>>ALEX SMITH, THE SECOND-LEADING RUSHER ON THE TEAM, COMES UP WITH A BIG GAIN THERE. HE’S GOT 8 FOR 57 YARDS. CLOSING SECONDS OF THE THIRD QUARTER. SMITH, INCOMPLETE.>>THERE’S THE FLAG.>>AND A FLAG COMES IN. JOSH GORDY, NUMBER 27, WAS OVER THERE ON THE COVERAGE.>>YEAH, THIS IS GONNA BE A HOLD ON GORDY AS OPPOSED TO AN INTERFERENCE.>>HOLDING. NUMBER 41, DEFENSE. 5-YARD PENALTY. FIRST DOWN.>>HE SAID 41 — ANTOINE BETHEA.>>HERE COMES 80, FASANO. HE BREAKS OUTSIDE. THERE’S THE HOLD RIGHT THERE. CERTAINLY WASN’T ON BETHEA. IT’S ON JOSH GORDY, WHO’S IN THE GAME FOR GREG TOLER.>>SO FIRST AND 10. 17 SECONDS LEFT IN THE THIRD. BALL INSIDE THE 45-YARD LINE OF INDIANAPOLIS. KANSAS CITY UP BY 10. COLTS IN A DESPERATE COMEBACK HERE IN THE CLOSING SECONDS OF THE THIRD QUARTER. KNILE DAVIS ON THE GROUND. THAT’LL BRING UP SECOND DOWN. AND THAT WILL BE THE FINAL PLAY OF THE THIRD QUARTER. AND KANSAS CITY FROM THE 41 TO BEGIN THE FOURTH QUARTER. DAN HICKS, MIKE MAYOCK, ALEX FLANAGAN HERE TO START THE NFL PLAYOFFS IN 2014. AND ON SECOND AND 8, ALEX SMITH GOING FAR DOWN THE SIDELINES. HE HAD A WIDE-OPEN CYRUS GRAY.>>INDIANAPOLIS WAS CONFUSED PRIOR TO THE SNAP. THAT’S A RUNNING BACK SPLIT OUT WIDE. AND YOU CAN SEE RIGHT THERE, TOLER — EXCUSE ME, GORDY LETS HIM GO. THERE’S NO SAFETY OVER TOP.>>OOH, MAN, HE HAD HIM. DARIUS BUTLER’S PLAYING SAFETY, AND HE’S TYPICALLY A CORNER. SO I’M NOT SURE WHERE THE MISTAKE WAS THERE, BUT IT WAS EITHER GORDY OR BUTLER WHO’S PLAYING SAFETY IN THEIR BASE DEFENSE.>>SMITH FRUSTRATED AFTER MISSING HIM. SO THIRD DOWN AND 8.>>MAN COVERAGE ALL THE WAY ACROSS.>>SMITH BACKING UP. FLUSHED OUT BY MATHIS. AND THROWS IT AWAY. FOURTH DOWN. HE WANTED A.J. JENKINS. BUT THE COLTS’ DEFENSE IS UP TO THE TASK, AND THAT’LL BRING OUT DUSTIN COLQUITT TO PUNT IT FOR KANSAS CITY. SINCE TRAILING BY 28 — REMEMBER, IT WAS 38-10 — THE COLTS OUTSCORED KANSAS CITY 21-3 TO END THE THIRD QUARTER. AND SO NOW ONLY TRAIL BY 10. COLQUITT, THE LEFT-FOOTED PUNTER, ONE OF THE LEAGUE’S BEST. AND WHALEN CALLING FOR THE FAIR CATCH AT THE 10-YARD LINE. WELL, IT’S BEEN A TALE OF TWO HALVES. AND WHEN YOU COMPARE THE TWO QUARTERBACKS, YOU SEE THAT ALEX SMITH HAD A MUCH BETTER FIRST HALF THAN ANDREW LUCK. THREE TOUCHDOWN PASSES FOR SMITH. AND THEN THINGS TURNED BETTER FOR ANDREW LUCK AND THE COLTS IN THE SECOND HALF, EVEN THOUGH LUCK THREW TWO OF HIS THREE PICKS IN THE SECOND HALF. HE’S GOT 180 YARDS TO SMITH’S 69.>>IF YOU TOLD ME THAT ANDREW LUCK WAS GONNA THROW THREE INTERCEPTIONS AND THAT K.C. WOULD HAVE 41 POINTS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FOURTH QUARTER, I WOULD HAVE SAID IT’S A BLOWOUT, GAME’S OVER.>>AND I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU THAT JAMAAL CHARLES WOULD BE OUT LESS THAN THREE MINUTES INTO THE GAME ON TOP OF THAT, YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE IT.>>EXACTLY.>>CRAZY START TO THE NFL PLAYOFFS — AS DONALD BROWN HAS NOTHING GOING. SO INDIANAPOLIS BACKED UP DEEP IN ITS OWN TERRITORY HERE.>>BOY, WAS THAT AN ATHLETIC PLAY BY DONTARI POE. 350-POUND DANCING BEAR.>>[ CHUCKLES ] STARTED EVERY GAME OF HIS TWO-YEAR CAREER. SECOND DOWN NOW FOR LUCK. STEPS UP. BALL INCOMPLETE. HE WANTED BRAZILL.>>CANNOT BE DROPPING THE FOOTBALL IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, BUT CERTAINLY NOT DOWN 10 IN A PLAYOFF GAME. HUGE, HUGE THIRD DOWN HERE. YOU CAN’T PUNT THE FOOTBALL AND GIVE THEM FIELD POSITION. FLEENER IN THE BACKFIELD.>>LUCK AVOIDS THE PRESSURE. STEPS UP AND DELIVERS THE FIRST-DOWN RECEPTION TO T.Y. HILTON. KEY THIRD-DOWN GAIN OF 16. LUCK TO HILTON.>>THIS ENTIRE COMEBACK IS HAPPENING BECAUSE ANDREW LUCK CONTINUES TO USE HIS LEGS TO CREATE PLAYS IN THE PASSING GAME.>>AND HILTON CONTINUES TO ADD TO THAT TOTAL. NOW 10 CATCHES, 134 YARDS. HE HAD THE OPENING TOUCHDOWN FOR INDIANAPOLIS. AND THAT KEY PLAY — BIG GAIN — KIND OF REALLY HELPING THE FIELD POSITION HERE FOR INDIANAPOLIS AS IT’S NOW ACROSS THE 25. A LITTLE BREATHING ROOM HERE FOR LUCK. AND THAT’S ANOTHER FIRST DOWN TO HILTON.>>HILTON IS RIPPING IT UP. DUNTA ROBINSON CAN’T STAY WITH HIM IN MAN COVERAGE. ROGERS IS GONNA CLEAR IT OUT, AND THEN UNDERNEATH COMES T.Y. HILTON. ROBINSON HAS BEEN UNABLE TO STAY WITH HIM.>>OPENING MOMENTS OF THE FOURTH QUARTER. BALL AT THE 40. TO BROWN. SURGING HIS WAY UP ACROSS THE 45 FOR A GOOD GAIN.>>THEY’VE HAD SOME LUCK WITH THAT PLAY. IT’S A LITTLE BIT OF A DRAW PLAY. ALL THE OFFENSIVE LINEMEN DO THEIR PASS SET, AND DONALD BROWN’S BEEN ABLE TO SNEAK IN THERE FOR GOOD YARDAGE.>>AND THE NOISE FACTOR HAS COME DOWN. THAT MEANS THE COLTS ARE AT WORK. AND ON SECOND AND 3. LUCK TO THE AIR TO HILTON AGAIN. THIS LOOKS LIKE THE OPENING DRIVE OF THE GAME, WHEN HILTON CAUGHT FOUR OF THE FIRST SEVEN PASSES BY LUCK.>>YEAH, HE JUST WORKS BACK ACROSS THE FACE OF ABDULLAH. AND IT DOESN’T MATTER IF IT’S DUNTA ROBINSON, ABDULLAH, THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO COVER HIM IN MAN OR ZONE.>>THEY’RE UP AT THE KANSAS CITY 41. AND THEY’RE MIXING IT UP NICELY HERE, AS BROWN GOES ON THE GROUND.>>AND I LIKE THE PHYSICALITY OF THE LEFT SIDE OF THEIR OFFENSIVE LINE. CASTONZO AND HUGH THORNTON WERE BLOWING PEOPLE OFF THE BALL. DONALD BROWN COMES DOWNHILL.>>SECOND DOWN AND 4 IT’LL BE FROM THE 35. LUCK LOOKING TO HIS RIGHT. NOTHING THERE. IS GONNA RUN IT. GONNA PICK UP THE FIRST DOWN, AND INSIDE THE 25 HE SLIDES.>>AGAIN WITH HIS LEGS. REALLY NICE POCKET FORMED. AND HE’S GONNA STEP UP INSIDE. FEELS IT, SEES IT. AND THEN SLIDES.>>THIRD RUSH FOR LUCK. HE’S PICKED UP 42 ON THE GROUND. AND HERE’S BROWN AGAIN. INSIDE THE 20.>>TWO WEEKS AGO, KANSAS CITY WAS SPYING ANDREW LUCK IN SEVERAL COVERAGES SO HE COULDN’T BEAT THEM WITH HIS LEGS. I THINK THE SECOND HALF HAS BEEN ALL ABOUT HIS ABILITY TO STEP UP IN THE POCKET AND CREATE PLAYS.>>BRINGS UP SECOND DOWN AND 6 AT THE 19. QUICK DROP BY LUCK. AND HE’S GOT WHALEN. AND WHALEN’S GOT THE FIRST DOWN INSIDE THE 10. A GAIN OF 9, WHERE IT’LL BE FIRST AND GOAL.>>YEAH, THEY DOUBLE-TEAMED T.Y. HILTON IN THE SLOT, SO THE CORRECT READ IS TO COME OFF THAT TO GRIFF WHALEN. PRETTY GOOD MATCHUP — THE FREE AGENT OUT OF STANFORD AGAINST THE SEVENTH-ROUND PICK OUT OF RUTGERS, MARCUS COOPER.>>BALL RIGHT ON THE 10-YARD LINE. FIRST AND GOAL. JUST A CLINICAL DRIVE BY THE COLTS. QUICK THROW OUT TO BROWN, WHO’S TRYING TO GET LOOSE TOWARD THE GOAL LINE. JUST SHORT OF IT. THEY MARK HIM OUT AT ABOUT THE 2.>>THAT PLAY IS SET UP EXPRESSLY TO GET DONALD BROWN IN SPACE, ONE-ON-ONE, AND HE WINS. BERRY MISSES THE TACKLE. BROWN MAKES A PLAY.>>ALREADY TWO TOUCHDOWNS FOR BROWN, AND THEY GIVE IT TO HIM AGAIN. OH, HE FUMBLES THE BALL! AND LUCK IS THERE TO PICK IT UP AND GO OVER THE GOAL LINE!>>[ LAUGHS ] ARE YOU KIDDING ME?>>TALK ABOUT “LUCK”! KANSAS CITY WAS POISED TO HOP ON IT. LUCK PICKED IT UP AND JUST CATAPULTED HIMSELF ACROSS THE GOAL LINE.>>29, ERIC BERRY, IS GONNA GET THE HIT RIGHT THERE. BALL POPS IN THE AIR. [ LAUGHS ] YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP, FOLKS.>>AND WHAT DID I SAY EARLIER, HOW BROWN HAS NEVER LOST A FUMBLE IN HIS NFL CAREER?>>STILL HASN’T.>>STILL HASN’T, THANKS TO LUCK. WHAT A COMEBACK. THIS WILL MAKE IT 41-38. AND THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS, TRAILING BY 28 MOMENTS INTO THE SECOND HALF. QUINTIN DEMPS IS GONNA BRING IT OUT FROM 8 YARDS DEEP. STUMBLES A BIT ON THE 10 AND GETS IT NO FURTHER THAN THE 17. SO HERE’S ALEX SMITH AND KANSAS CITY. FROM DEEP IN THEIR TERRITORY THEY GET IT TO JUNIOR HEMINGWAY, WHO WAS SLOW IN GETTING UP EARLIER IN THE GAME. HE’S BACK IN THERE, AND A GAIN OF 12 FOR THE CHIEFS. AND RIGHT AWAY THEY QUIET THIS CROWD DOWN, AS LUCK HAD THEM ENERGIZED.>>THAT WAS A GOOD OFFENSIVE PLAY CALL. IT WAS THE EXACT SAME PLAY OFF PLAY-ACTION THAT ALEX SMITH HIT BOWE IN THE FIRST HALF FOR, FOR A HUGE GAIN. THAT TIME IT WAS HEMINGWAY.>>REMEMBER TALKING TO YOU ALL WEEK. THIS GAME, MIKE, YOU SAID THAT IF IT GOT TO THE FOURTH QUARTER, YOU LIKED ANDREW LUCK AND THE COLTS’ CHANCES. WELL, HERE WE ARE. WE’LL SEE WHAT ALEX SMITH CAN DO WITH HIS KANSAS CITY TEAM WHICH IS TRYING TO AVOID WHAT WOULD BE A BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT HERE WITH A 28-POINT LEAD IN THE SECOND HALF AND TRYING TO GET BACK TO THE PLAYOFFS. AND ANOTHER CHIEF IS DOWN. AND THAT IS KNILE DAVIS. REMEMBER, THEY’VE ALREADY LOST JAMAAL CHARLES EARLY IN THE GAME. AND HE IS HOLDING THAT LEFT KNEE.>>THIS HAS BEEN A WAR OF ATTRITION HERE FOR KANSAS CITY. CHARLES DOWN. IF KNILE DAVIS CAN’T GO, IT BECOMES CYRUS GRAY. THEY’VE LOST DONNIE AVERY.>>SO INJURY TIME-OUT ON THE FIELD WITH A SECOND AND 5 FOR KANSAS CITY. THERE IS KNILE DAVIS, THE BACKUP RUNNING BACK TO JAMAAL CHARLES, WHO’S ALREADY OUT WITH A CONCUSSION, BEING HELPED OFF THE FIELD. AND SO SECOND AND 5 FROM THE 35. GOT CYRUS GRAY IN THE BACKFIELD, AND THAT IS BATTED DOWN AT THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE BY ERIK WALDEN TO BRING UP THIRD AND 5.>>WALDEN WAS LINED UP VERY WIDE. 93, BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN. NO CHANCE TO CUT HIM. TYPICALLY YOU WANT TO CUT THE OUTSIDE GUY TO GET HIS HANDS DOWN. ANOTHER BIG PLAY BY THE COLTS.>>WALDEN WITH A BIG PLAY. STARTED THE LAST TWO YEARS FOR THE PACKERS. AND THERE’S DAVIS BEING WORKED ON. AND THERE IS CYRUS GRAY. THEY’RE DOWN TO THEIR THIRD RUNNING BACK. AND ON THIRD AND 5, THEY’RE GONNA HEAR IT FROM THE COLT CROWD. SMITH’S PASS COMPLETE. AND DIVING FOR THE FIRST DOWN IS DWAYNE BOWE.>>I LIKE HOW THE LEFT SIDE OF THE OFFENSIVE LINE PICKED UP THE STUNT WITH MATHIS. MATHIS IS COMING INSIDE. THE DEFENSIVE TACKLE IS COMING OUTSIDE. NICE JOB TRADING OFF BY JEFF ALLEN, THE LEFT GUARD, PICKING UP MATHIS AND ALLOWING THE TIME FOR DWAYNE BOWE TO WIN OUTSIDE AGAINST JOSH GORDY.>>6 CATCHES, 112 YARDS FOR BOWE. BALL JUST ACROSS THE 40-YARD LINE. THERE’S GRAY, THE LONE SET BACK, AND ABOUT THE ONLY RUNNING BACK LEFT ON THE CHIEFS’ SQUAD. THEY GIVE IT TO HIM. AND GRAY GETS MAYBE A COUPLE. SIXTH-ROUND DRAFT PICK OUT OF TEXAS A&M A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. JUST NINE CARRIES THIS YEAR BEFORE THIS GAME.>>LET’S UNDERSTAND THE CHALLENGE FOR THIS KANSAS CITY OFFENSE WITH ALL THE INJURIES. TWO TAILBACKS DOWN. DONNIE AVERY, YOUR STARTING WIDE-OUT, IS DOWN. AND WHAT WE’RE SEEING NOW IS GUYS LIKE JUNIOR HEMINGWAY, GUYS LIKE A.J. JENKINS AT TAILBACK. CYRUS GRAY. IT’S A PLAY-CALLING CHALLENGE FOR ANDY REID AND DOUG PEDERSON.>>PLAY-ACTION. THEY GO TO FASANO, FAR SIDELINE. AND THAT’LL BRING UP THIRD AND LONG. MAYBE A YARD GAIN THERE BY THE TIGHT END.>>SO WHO’S LEFT THAT CAN MAKE A PLAY OFFENSIVELY? DWAYNE BOWE IS STILL IN THE BALLGAME. AFTER THAT, THERE’S NOBODY YOU TRUST OUTSIDE OF MAYBE FASANO, WHO THEY WENT TO THERE.>>DEXTER McCLUSTER IS A BIG-PLAY KIND OF GUY, NUMBER 22.>>McCLUSTER AND BOWE TO THE SAME SIDE.>>PLAY CLOCK DOWN TO :04, AND KANSAS CITY CALLS A TIME-OUT.>>[ CHUCKLES ]>>AND THE CROWD TAKES A COLLECTIVE BREATH. WELL, WE’VE SEEN SOME GREAT COMEBACKS IN NFL PLAYOFF HISTORY, AND THIS ONE WOBBLING ON THE EDGE OF RECORD FASHION. REMEMBER, DOWN BY 28 LESS THAN THREE MINUTES INTO THE SECOND HALF — AS YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE TEAMS TO WIN AFTER TRAILING BY 28 OR MORE POINTS. EVERYBODY REMEMBERS THAT INCREDIBLE BUFFALO BILLS COMEBACK ON THE OILERS. 32 THEY WERE DOWN. FRANK REICH GAME. THAT HAPPENING BACK IN 1993. AND CAN CHUCK PAGANO’S TEAM PULL OFF A SIMILAR TYPE OF HISTORIC COMEBACK WITH ANDREW LUCK AND COMPANY?>>I THINK YOU’RE EITHER LOOKING AT BOWE OR McCLUSTER. AND IF I’M INDY, I’M GONNA DOUBLE-TEAM BOWE.>>SMITH GETS IT AWAY. CAN JENKINS PICK UP THE FIRST DOWN? EASILY. HE HAS A NICE RUN TO THE NEAR SIDE. BIG GAIN FOR A.J. JENKINS. THEY’RE GONNA MARK HIM OUT OF BOUNDS ALL THE WAY UP TO THE 29-YARD LINE OF THE COLTS. A GAIN OF 27. COULDN’T HAVE COME AT A BETTER TIME FOR REID.>>KANSAS CITY’S MADE A LIVING WITH THIS PLAY ALL YEAR LONG. IT’S JUST A DOWN-THE-FIELD SCREEN. THE ONLY LIVE RECEIVER ON THAT PLAY WAS JENKINS. EVERY OTHER RECEIVER, TIGHT END, AND RUNNING BACK WAS DOWN THE FIELD BLOCKING.>>JENKINS, THE 30th PICK IN THE 2012 DRAFT BY THE 49ers. ONLY EIGHT CAREER RECEPTIONS. THREE LAST WEEK. PICKS UP A HUGE ONE THERE.>>WOW.>>AND THAT’S ANOTHER TIME-OUT CALLED, AS THE PLAY CLOCK WAS DOWN TO 1 SECOND.>>SMITH IS UPSET.>>SO WE’LL SEE HOW THAT FACTORS IN AT THE END OF THIS ONE, AS KANSAS CITY’S BEEN FORCED TO TAKE TWO TIME-OUTS NOW. JUST ONE LEFT.>>THIS IS A DOWN-THE-FIELD SCREEN PASS. ANDY REID’S MADE A LIVING WITH THIS ALL SEASON LONG. OKAY, HERE’S YOUR INTENDED RECEIVER. WATCH EVERYBODY BLOCK DOWN THE FIELD. THEY’RE NOT EVEN GONNA LOOK FOR THE FOOTBALL. THEY’RE ALL BLOCKING. WHY? SO THEY GET THAT MOVEMENT RIGHT THERE, GET A GUY THAT RUNS 4.35. AND, REMEMBER, THE TRADE FOR JENKINS, DAN, IT WAS A FAILED WIDE RECEIVER IN SAN FRANCISCO FOR A FAILED WIDE RECEIVER, JONATHAN BALDWIN, IN KANSAS CITY. BOTH FIRST-ROUND PICKS.>>CAN KANSAS CITY CAPITALIZE ON THE BIG GAIN BY JENKINS? THAT’S McCLUSTER LINED UP BEHIND SMITH. AND McCLUSTER IS ALWAYS DANGEROUS, AS HE EARNED HIMSELF A PRO BOWL BERTH AS A PUNT RETURNER. KNOCKED OUT OF BOUNDS BY BETHEA AFTER A GAIN OF 4.>>KEEP IN MIND McCLUSTER’S VERY COMFORTABLE DOTTING THE “I” AS A TAILBACK. AT OLE MISS, ONE OF THE REASONS WHY SCOUTS LOVED THIS GUY WAS THE TOUGHNESS HE EXHIBITED AS A TAILBACK DESPITE HIS SIZE.>>BY THE WAY, IT’S OFFICIAL — KNILE DAVIS IS OUT FOR THE GAME. SO THE TOP TWO RUNNING BACKS, INCLUDING JAMAAL CHARLES, OUT FOR KANSAS CITY. KNEE INJURY FOR KNILE DAVIS. AND ON SECOND DOWN AND 7, SMITH IMPROVISING AGAIN. GETS IT OUT TO ANTHONY SHERMAN, WHO’S DROPPED. THAT IS LaRON LANDRY WHO’S DOWN NOW. IT’S A LOSS OF 4.>>THAT’S A HECK OF A PLAY BY LaRON LANDRY. RODNEY HUDSON, THE CENTER, IS THE PERSON WHO’S GOT RESPONSIBILITY TO GET OUT AND BLOCK THE CONTAIN GUY. AND LOOK AT LaRON LANDRY. HE WAS JUST TOO FAST FOR RODNEY HUDSON. HE’S GONNA DROP HIS HEAD THERE, WHICH IS ALWAYS DANGEROUS FOR THE TACKLER. AND HE’S GOT A KNEE IN THE HELMET.>>LANDRY ONE OF THE HARD HITTERS IN THE NFL. HE WAS THE GUY THAT GAVE BOWE — DWAYNE BOWE — A CONCUSSION IN THE GAME A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. BOTH LSU TIGERS — FORMER LSU TIGERS. WE’VE GOT ANOTHER STOPPAGE OF PLAY. WE HAVE HAD OUR SHARE OF HARD HITS AND GUYS OUT, EVALUATIONS FOR CONCUSSIONS. BEEN ONE OF THOSE GAMES. AND LANDRY’S UP.>>YEAH, LANDRY WAS A KEY SIGNING BY GENERAL MANAGER RYAN GRIGSON, ALONG WITH CORY REDDING, WHO CHUCK PAGANO HAD COACHED IN BALTIMORE TWO YEARS AGO. AUBRAYO FRANKLIN. HE BROUGHT IN GUYS THAT UNDERSTOOD HOW TO PLAY CHUCK PAGANO’S SYSTEM.>>YEAH, GRIGSON REALLY REVAMPED THE WHOLE DEFENSIVE SECONDARY. THERE HE IS. A REAL PERSONNEL JUNKIE. HE’S BEEN ONE OF THE REAL KEYS TO THIS REBUILDING OF THIS COLT FRANCHISE. AGAIN, 11-5 THE LAST TWO YEARS, BUT REMEMBER THEY WENT 2-14 PREVIOUS TO THOSE TWO GOOD YEARS THE LAST TWO SEASONS. THIRD AND 11 FOR THE CHIEFS. AND IT’S COMPLETE. SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN TO McCLUSTER.>>AND THAT’S OKAY. THEY’RE IN FIELD-GOAL RANGE. YOU DON’T TAKE A SACK. YOU DON’T TURN IT OVER. I WOULD JUST BE CONCERNED THAT IF YOU DO MAKE THIS FIELD GOAL AND YOU’VE GOT A 6-POINT LEAD, THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU’RE HANDING THE BALL BACK TO ANDREW LUCK WITH THE GAME ON THE LINE.>>YOU CAN’T THINK ABOUT ALL THE INCREDIBLE POSTSEASON KICKING DISAPPOINTMENTS THAT KANSAS CITY HAS HAD IN PLAYOFF YEARS OF OLD. THIS’LL BE A 43-YARD ATTEMPT BY RYAN SUCCOP TO INCREASE THE LEAD. AND THAT ONE IS GOOD. NO PROBLEM FOR RYAN SUCCOP. SO KANSAS CITY UPS THE LEAD, 44-38. WE’VE GOT A 6-POINT GAME WITH 5 1/2 MINUTES LEFT, AND THE COLTS GET READY TO COME OUT ON OFFENSE AT THEIR OWN 20. AND ANDREW LUCK WILL BEGIN THERE WITH 5:36 REMAINING. ANDY REID AND KANSAS CITY TRYING TO HANG ON HERE. UP BY 6. LUCK AND THE COLTS START AT THEIR OWN 20. THERE’S THE “NOTABLE INJURY” LIST. NOT PRETTY FOR REID. COUPLE OF PRO BOWLERS ON THAT LIST. LUCK. PASS. AND IT’S HILTON WHO IS UNABLE TO HANG ON TO THIS ONE. THIS IS HOW WILD THE POSSESSIONS FOR THE COLTS HAVE BEEN IN THIS HALF, MIKE. THEY’VE HAD THE TWO INTERCEPTIONS THROWN BY LUCK. ALL THE WHILE, THEY’VE HAD FOUR TOUCHDOWNS AROUND THOSE INTERCEPTIONS. AND SO, AGAIN, SINCE TRAILING 38-10, INDIANAPOLIS HAS OUTSCORED K.C. 28-6. THERE ARE A LOOK AT THE POSSESSIONS.>>WOW.>>UP AND DOWN AND EVERYWHERE FOR PEP HAMILTON AND HIS OFFENSE. AND HERE COMES LUCK. FLUSHED OUT. GETTING IT UP TO THE 25 FOR A GAIN OF 5. AND THERE WAS NO SLIDE THERE.>>HE LOOKED LIKE A FULLBACK. [ LAUGHS ]>>ALL RIGHT, SO A KEY THIRD AND 5 FOR INDIANAPOLIS. ANDREW LUCK’S ABILITY TO KEEP PLAYS ALIVE, SLIDING AND MOVING IN THAT POCKET, HAVE BEEN THE WHOLE DIFFERENCE IN THIS HALF.>>LUCK ON THE MARK. COMPLETE TO FLEENER FOR THE FIRST DOWN. GAIN OF 11 ON A KEY THIRD AND 5.>>THAT’S A MATCHUP WE’VE TALKED ABOUT SINCE EARLY IN THE FIRST QUARTER. IT’S PRO BOWLER, 29, ERIC BERRY, WITH INSIDE LEVERAGE. FLEENER BREAKS IT AWAY FROM THAT INSIDE LEVERAGE, AND IT’S AN EASY THROW AND CATCH AND A FIRST DOWN.>>AND ANOTHER CHIEF PLAYER IS DOWN. AND I BELIEVE THAT’S JUSTIN HOUSTON, THE GUY THAT MISSED FIVE GAMES FOR ANDY REID AFTER DISLOCATING HIS ELBOW IN THE CHARGERS GAME EARLIER. THEY’RE TAKING A LOOK AT HIS LEFT KNEE THERE. KANSAS CITY ALREADY WITHOUT A COUPLE OF PRO BOWLERS LOST TO INJURIES. BRANDON FLOWERS ON DEFENSE. JAMAAL CHARLES ON OFFENSE. AND SO THIS INJURY BUG CONTAGIOUS FOR KANSAS CITY AT THE WRONG TIME NOW.>>YEAH, AND ALEX FLANAGAN JUST TOLD US THAT DUNTA ROBINSON, THE NICKEL, HAS BEEN OUT THE LAST SEVERAL SERIES. SO ABDULLAH IS IN THE GAME ALONG WITH QUINTIN DEMPS, SO A SAFETY IS NOW PLAYING THE NICKEL POSITION.>>AND HERE’S LUCK AND THE COLTS FROM THEIR OWN 36 WITH A FRESH SET OF DOWNS. STEPS UP. LONG LOOK, AND HE’S GOT HILTON FOR THE TOUCHDOWN! T.Y. HILTON WITH HIS SECOND TOUCHDOWN CATCH OF THE DAY. PUTS HIM OVER 200 YARDS. AND ALEX SMITH AND KANSAS CITY ARE DOWN FOR THE FIRST TIME. TIED AT THE MOMENT AT 44, BUT ADAM VINATIERI IS GONNA GIVE THE COLTS THE LEAD FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME.>>13 CATCHES FOR 224 YARDS. T.Y. HILTON AGAINST THE TWO-DEEP SHELL. HERE’S HILTON. NOBODY RUNS UNDERNEATH. THERE’S NO HELP FOR THE SAFETIES UNDERNEATH. AND I THINK WHEN ALL OF THESE DEFENSIVE BACKS ARE HURT… HERE HE IS RIGHT HERE. AND HE’S JUST RUNNING DEEP. AND YOU’RE GONNA SEE NUMBER 23, KENDRICK LEWIS, TURNING TO THE OUTSIDE. HILTON GOES INSIDE. THERE’S NO HELP FROM EITHER UNDERNEATH OR WITH THE BACK-SIDE SAFETY. AND HILTON HAS SHREDDED THIS DEFENSE.>>THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF PLAYERS THAT HAVE KEPT THIS INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SEASON ALIVE WITH ALL THE INJURIES THAT THEY’VE HAD. OF COURSE REGGIE WAYNE GOING OUT. BUT IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE WIDE-RECEIVING GROUP, WITH T.Y. HILTON STEPPING UP, GRIFF WHALEN STEPPING UP, DA’RICK ROGERS. WE WERE TOLD BY THE COACHING STAFF YESTERDAY THAT THEY’RE THE FIRST GROUP OF GUYS IN THE BUILDING AT 6:30 IN THE MORNING. THEY’RE THE LAST TO LEAVE. AND LUCK JUST CONNECTS WITH HILTON AGAIN FOR THE SECOND TIME TO GIVE THE COLTS THEIR FIRST LEAD OF THE GAME. 45-44. 4:20 LEFT. PLENTY OF TIME FOR KANSAS CITY AND ALEX SMITH. THERE HE IS. OVER THE 200 MARK. SECOND MOST IN POSTSEASON HISTORY. MOST GAMES WITH 100-PLUS RECEIVING YARDS IN THEIR FIRST TWO SEASONS SINCE 1970 — T.Y. HILTON MATCHED WITH TORRY HOLT. ONLY RANDY MOSS WITH MORE, BACK WITH THE VIKINGS. SO T.Y. HILTON, A HUGE DAY TODAY FOR THE COLTS — AGAIN, WHO TRAILED BY 28 IN THE OPENING MOMENTS OF THE SECOND HALF. SO HERE’S KANSAS CITY FROM ITS OWN 20 WITH ONE TIME-OUT LEFT AND 4:21 TO GO. SMITH TO THE AIR, AND HE’S COMPLETE TO DWAYNE BOWE, WHO ALMOST GOT LOOSE, AS HE WAS BROUGHT DOWN AT THE 45 BY COREY LYNCH.>>YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS STOPPED BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THERE WAS MOVEMENT IN THE KANSAS CITY LINE. DWAYNE BOWE WASN’T EVEN SURE. YOU SEE HOW DARIUS BUTLER STOPPED? HALF THE PLAYERS STOPPED BECAUSE OF MOVEMENT, AND I THINK IT WAS THERE AT RIGHT GUARD. MATHIS STARTED POINTING HIS FINGERS AT HIM. YOU SAW BUTLER STOP. AND THAT’S A LESSON — YOU ALWAYS PLAY TO THE WHISTLE.>>QUICK PLAY-ACTION. THEY GO TO BOWE AGAIN. AND BOWE HAS ANOTHER FIRST DOWN. THEY’RE INTO COLT TERRITORY AFTER A GAIN OF 13. 3 1/2 TO GO.>>IN MY WILDEST DREAMS, I NEVER SAW THE HIGH-SCORING SHOOTOUT COMING.>>ONE TIME-OUT LEFT FOR KANSAS CITY. COLTS LOOKING FOR A BIG PLAY ON DEFENSE. AND THEY GIVE IT TO CYRUS GRAY, WHO’S INSIDE THE 40. AGAIN, WITHOUT CHARLES AND WITHOUT DAVIS AND A WHOLE HOST OF OTHER KANSAS CITY CHIEFS WHO HAVE GONE DOWN IN THIS GAME, CAN THEY PULL THIS ONE OUT IN THE CLOSING SECONDS? AGAIN, TRAILING BY JUST 1, SO A FIELD GOAL IS HUGE HERE.>>YEAH, AND YOU ALSO WANT TO RUN THIS CLOCK AS MUCH AS YOU CAN BECAUSE EVEN IF YOU KICK A FIELD GOAL, YOU WANT ANDREW LUCK TO HAVE AS LITTLE TIME AS POSSIBLE TO WORK HIS MAGIC.>>SECOND AND 7 FROM THE 39. SMITH IS IN TROUBLE. HE JUST GETS IT AWAY.>>I’M NOT SURE HE WAS OUTSIDE THE POCKET. AND IT DIDN’T GET BACK TO THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE.>>HE WAS PRETTY MUCH STRAIGHT BACK. AND THERE’S THE FLAG FOR INTENTIONAL GROUNDING.>>YEP.>>INTENTIONAL GROUNDING. NUMBER 11, OFFENSE. QUARTERBACK WAS IN THE POCKET. THERE WAS NO ELIGIBLE RECEIVER IN THE AREA. IT’S A LOSS OF DOWN. 10-YARD PENALTY. THIRD DOWN.>>SEE THE TACKLE BOX. HE’S TRYING TO THROW IT THIS WAY TO A BUBBLE SCREEN. DOESN’T HAVE IT. THERE’S IMMEDIATE PRESSURE. CERTAINLY INSIDE THE TACKLE BOX. AND THAT’S A GOOD CALL.>>YEP. CLEARLY INSIDE OF IT. ANDREW LUCK LOVING WHAT HE SEES. AND ON THIRD AND 17 AFTER THE PENALTY, THE BALL IS BACK ALMOST TO MIDFIELD. WATCH THAT WIDE RECEIVER DOWN-THE-FIELD SCREEN AGAIN. THERE IT IS.>>SMITH’S PASS COMPLETE. THIS IS McCLUSTER. AND HE’S BROUGHT DOWN WELL SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN. THEY GOT A LITTLE BIT OF IT BACK. VONTAE DAVIS ON THE STOP. AS THE BALL IS GONNA BE MARKED OUT AT ABOUT THE 43-YARD LINE.>>THAT WAS THE SAME WIDE-RECEIVER SCREEN THEY HIT A.J. JENKINS ON. REALLY GOOD JOB BY DARIUS BUTLER TRACKING IT DOWN AND MAKING THE TACKLE.>>PLAY OF THE GAME. 2:00 LEFT. FOURTH AND 11. KANSAS CITY OUT OF FIELD-GOAL RANGE. FORCED TO GO FOR IT. FOURTH AND 11.>>DWAYNE BOWE IS HERE.>>AND A TIME-OUT. THEIR LAST ONE THEY TAKE.>>THIS IS THE THIRD AND FINAL TIME-OUT, KANSAS CITY. 30-SECOND TIME-OUT.>>I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU GO TO A 2-MINUTE BREAK, HAVE THE TIME TO MAKE THE CALL, AND COME BACK OUT AND HAVE TO BURN YOUR FINAL TIME-OUT, UNLESS YOU SAW SOMETHING SO CRAZY –>>EXACTLY.>>BUT YOU DIDN’T. I THOUGHT THEY HAD AN ADVANTAGEOUS LOOK. THEY HAVE DWAYNE BOWE BY HIMSELF, ONE-ON-ONE WITH DAVIS WITH NO HELP. THE CRITICISM IN PHILADELPHIA ON ANDY REID WAS TIME MANAGEMENT.>>1,052 COMBINED YARDS FOR BOTH TEAMS. THAT IS AN NFL POSTSEASON RECORD. COLTS WITH A 1-POINT LEAD. CHIEFS WITH ONE CHANCE HERE, FOURTH AND 11, TO TRY TO KEEP THEIR HOPES ALIVE AT PICKING UP THEIR FIRST POSTSEASON WIN IN 20 YEARS.>>HE’S GOT HIM.>>SMITH HAS A MAN DOWN THE FAR SIDELINES. DWAYNE BOWE… AND HE WAS OUT! AND THE COLTS CELEBRATING ON THE SIDELINE, AS DWAYNE BOWE MADE THE CATCH RIGHT ON THE EDGE.>>ONE-ON-ONE WITH NO HELP. ONE FOOT. NO WAY.>>THAT CLOSE.>>I GIVE JOSH GORDY CREDIT FOR PUSHING HIM UP AGAINST THE SIDELINES. I CERTAINLY WOULDN’T HAVE WANTED TO SEE DWAYNE BOWE WITH ONLY SINGLE COVERAGE AND A CHANCE TO WIN.>>SO THE COLTS, TRAILING BY 28… THAT CLOSE FOR KANSAS CITY TO KEEPING THE DRIVE ALIVE FOR A POTENTIAL GAME-WINNING FIELD GOAL. AND THE COLTS, IN VICTORY FORMATION, ARE GONNA PULL THIS ONE OUT. ANDREW LUCK, WHO THROWS THREE INTERCEPTIONS. WOULD YOU HAVE EVER BELIEVED THAT LUCK COULD THROW THREE INTERCEPTIONS AND THE COLTS WOULD COME OUT ON TOP? IT ALL WENT WRONG INJURYWISE FOR ANDY REID, MOMENTUMWISE. ROBERT MATHIS HAD A KEY STRIP WHICH KIND OF BEGAN THIS WHOLE MOMENTUM WAVE FOR THE COLTS. AND THE CHIEFS ARE GONNA GO HOME IN THE POSTSEASON AGAIN. 0 FOR 8 IN THE LAST 8 POSTSEASON GAMES FOR KANSAS CITY. AND ANDREW LUCK AND THE COLTS ARE GONNA MOVE ON WITH A WILD WILD-CARD WIN OVER THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS. REID ALMOST CAN’T BELIEVE IT.>>I’VE NEVER SEEN A TEAM HAVE MORE INJURIES THAN KANSAS CITY IN A BIG PLAYOFF GAME, BUT GIVE INDIANAPOLIS CREDIT. THAT COMEBACK AND THE WAY THEY PLAYED WITH ESPECIALLY THEIR QUARTERBACK IN THE SECOND HALF WAS PHENOMENAL.>>HILTON HAD THE HUGE GAME. 224 YARDS RECEIVING. AND AGAIN, AFTER THEY TRAILED BY 28 EARLY IN THE THIRD QUARTER, THE COLTS END THE GAME BY OUTSCORING KANSAS CITY 35-6 IN ONE OF THE GREATEST POSTSEASON COMEBACKS IN NFL HISTORY. THERE’S A MAN THAT NEVER STOPS BELIEVING — CHUCK PAGANO. AFTER THE DISAPPOINTMENT — AND ANDREW LUCK TALKED TO US ABOUT IT THIS WEEK — THERE WAS SUCH A FINALITY TO THAT PLAYOFF LAST YEAR. SUCH A KICK TO THE STOMACH. YOU NEVER WANT TO GET BACK INTO THAT SITUATION IN THE POSTSEASON WHERE YOU GO OUT, ONE AND DONE, AND YOU’RE GONE. WELL, THIS ONE JUST HAS THE LOOK OF ONE OF THOSE MOMENTUM TYPE OF GAMES THAT WHO KNOWS HOW FAR IT COULD CARRY THE COLTS INTO THE PLAYOFFS. AND ANDY REID IN HIS FIRST SEASON IN KANSAS CITY. THE SEASON IS OVER FOR THE CHIEFS. AS WE SEND IT DOWN TO ALEX.>>ANDREW LUCK DOWN HERE, YOU GUYS, CONGRATULATING HIS TEAMMATES AS WELL AS ALEX SMITH. 28 POINTS YOU WERE DOWN AT THE HALF. WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE SECOND-HALF COMEBACK?>>I THINK IT WAS A TOTAL TEAM EFFORT. DEFENSIVELY, SPECIAL TEAMS, OFFENSIVELY. AND THEN WE NEVER PANICKED. PLAYED IT ONE PLAY AT A TIME. AND WHEN YOU’VE GOT A ROB MATHIS ON YOUR TEAM, WHEN YOU GOT ADAM VINATIERI, WHEN YOU GOT THE GUYS WE HAVE, WE FEEL LIKE WE’RE IN EVERY GAME.>>YOU SAY YOU NEVER PANICKED, BUT AFTER THE THIRD TURNOVER YOU LAID FLAT DOWN ON THE GROUND AND PUNCHED DOWN. WHAT’S GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND AFTER YOU THROW A THIRD TURNOVER IN THIS GAME?>>YEAH, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF WORDS THAT I CAN’T REPEAT. YOU KNOW, DISAPPOINTED IN MYSELF, ANGRY. AND I’M GLAD FOR THE GUYS STICKING WITH ME, THE COACHES STICKING WITH ME, AND THEN PULLING THIS ONE OUT.>>IT WAS AN EXCITING WIN, ANDREW. CONGRATULATIONS.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>UNFAZED, UNDETERRED, ANDREW LUCK AND THE COLTS PULL IT OUT. DAN HICKS SAYING SO LONG FROM INDIANAPOLIS. A WILD ONE IN FAVOR OF THE COLTS, 45-44.

  2. My dad joked about selling a slightly used Andrew Luck jersey to some Chiefs fans at halftime of this game. This game was incredible.

  3. Get Goosebumps every time i watch this!! Woww #ColtsFanTillTheDeathOfMe i still watch this at least 5 times a year!

  4. Smith was great that game, shame the defense let him down if he had won and coming of the Pro Bowl he probably would have been viewed differently

  5. Smith's ball was about 50 yards in the air before Avery caught it. Perfect 50 yard laser too. Too bad this type of play isn't used by KC that often.

  6. Colts gained momentum back quickly after being down 28. Long pass to Rogers set up TD then that strip sack. Cut the lead to 14 midway through 3rd to make the comeback manageable

  7. Colts cut the lead to 10 by the 3rd quarter. The way the 3rd quarter went, nothing too crazy needed to happen in the 4th to come back like what the Pats did in Super Bowl.

  8. Smith made a crucial overthrow to Cyrus Gray that would've put KC first and goal to start 4th quarter. Stalled at 41 yard line

  9. Colts made big 3rd down conversion from their 10 yard line and marched down the field, finishing with Luck's famous fumble recovery. Now only down 3 with 10 minutes left. Can't be stopped.

  10. After falling behind, Chiefs quickly got into Colts territory. Intentional grounding hurt them and Bowe unable to be in bounds on 4th down catch. Questionable timeouts allowed Colts to kneel rest of game. Great comeback but Chiefs defense collapsed and offense cooled. As a Chiefs fan I hope Chiefs can make a Super Bowl run in my lifetime and stop with these close frustrating losses.

  12. (Die hard Chiefs fan here) I just watched NFL Greatest Games on NFL Network and at the end of the game I just broke down and start crying cuz the Chiefs can't never catch a break; so to all my chiefs fans just pray that the chiefs never blow a league again in the future) oops they did Titans vs Chiefs January 6th 2018 at home reminder blow a 21 league; all I got to say is what about those chiefs😓😓😓😓

  13. You know the Chiefs are thankful that the Falcons choked harder than anyone in Super Bowl 51 so this collapse wouldn't get brought up as much as that one.

  14. Alex Smith's first and last playoff games for KC ended up the same way, conservative Andy Reid and a defensive meltdown. Hopefully Jay Gruden knows how to step on a teams throat, because Andy sure as hell doesn't. As great as Andy Reid has been he might go down as the best regular season coach to always blow it in the playoffs.

  15. 1:10:40 I wish they would show wtf is downfield so I can see if it’s Alexis Smith fault which it probly is lol

  16. You don't realize how terrible TERRIBLE the Colts played in the first half til you watch it back. Good riddance they were awful!

  17. 4 of the last 10 playoff losses from the Chiefs since 1993 has been to this team there ain’t no way they’re losing again to Indianapolis even with their poor defense they will still win

  18. It wont be like that this time. Better players and coaches for Luck. The Colts will lead the entire game and win by 10 on 2019

  19. I remember being at a Pacers game during this game, crowd went crazy during a Lance Stephenson free throw when the Colts took the lead. Crazy Luck was able to win despite Trent Richardson and Chuck Pagano

  20. My Seahawks won the Super Bowl that season but other then that this to me was one of the best games of the playoffs that year when the Colts pulled that comeback against the Chiefs in the wild card that was a great game.

  21. Came here after hearing the news that Luck retired. Ill always remember this game and I hope Andrew Luck enjoys his retirement.
