Chiefs roll past Colts 31-13 to reach AFC title game

The NFL Is Reportedly Concerned About The Chargers Potentially Hosting The AFC Title Game

The NFL Is Reportedly Concerned About The Chargers Potentially Hosting The AFC Title Game

The Saints are scoring over 34 points per game at home. With Peyton Manning operating in ideal conditions, they scored 38.

On Saturday, the Indianapolis Colts were on the road for a game against the Kansas City that started out looking like a glorious winter wonderland.

While Anderson and Gurley ran wild, National Football League rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott managed just 47 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.

Well, that defense is a big reason why the Chiefs are one step away.

Another day of action-packed playoff football is in the books, and two teams have officially punched their tickets to their respective conference championship games. The Chargers and Chiefs split their season series - each winning in the others' home stadium.

Kansas City Chiefs guard Jeff Allen is rewarding a fan's act of kindness toward him with tickets to next Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

He'll need to be plenty, well, saintly against New Orleans and its collection of Saints, the league's top team in the regular season.

Plus, they had that Manning guy.

Things finally went in Kansas City's favor in the playoffs and it feels pretty damn good. The Indianapolis Colts walloped the Houston Texans and the Los Angeles Chargers got their revenge on the Baltimore Ravens. The closest might be the 2011 Green Bay Packers, whose leading receiver, Greg Jennings, recognized the similarities at once. Visit SportsLine now to see what picks you should make on Sunday, all from the expert who keeps crushing the world's most prestigious handicapping tournament, and find out. The Packers also gave up more passing yards and total yards than Kansas City did this season.

"We're going to enjoy it", Goff said. We needed to know that it didn't always have to end in heartbreak. "We recognized it and we had to make up for it".

The Chiefs, for their part, seem aware of their inadequacies, especially in the secondary and at linebacker. "We just gave them too many opportunities".

Their strength is their pass-rush, which registered 52 sacks, and that just might be their path to glory. "The Saints have been breathing easy for the last two weeks; the Eagles just sweated out a one-point victory clinched only by a blocked field goal". Several plays later, it's Gurley bringing it in for the six points on a four-yard rushing TD.

When trailing, offenses tend to throw more often, and against defenses willing to keep the play in front of them by conceding yardage.

That kind of resilience had been in short supply for the Chiefs in the playoffs. However, the reality is that for all the success the Rams have had over the last two years, they were bounced from the playoffs early last year. The second is that the Colts have tormented them plenty in the modern era, including that 45-44 playoff win in Indianapolis five years ago that saw the Colts erase a 31-10 halftime deficit. However, Luck orchestrates a drive down the field and ultimately Jordan Wilkins runs it in for the one-yard touchdown. He emphasized that he never once believed that the defense would constrain them. They tallied at least 30 points in 13 of 16 games and averaged 32.4 at Arrowhead, where they closed the season by throttling Oakland, 35-3, in a performance that safety Eric Murray said felt "more cohesive" and "less segmented".
