Final Score: Indianapolis 45, Kansas City 44
Andrew Luck led the Colts back from a 28-point third-quarter deficit by leading Indy to five touchdown drives in the second half, lifting Indianapolis to a 45-44 victory over the Chiefs in the AFC playoffs.
Luck threw three interceptions that helped put the Colts in a 38-10 hole, but then Luck went to work on the Kansas City defense in orchestrating the second-largest comeback in NFL playoff history. Luck finished with four touchdown passes, ran in another score on a fumble recovery, and put up 443 yards passing.
T.Y. Hilton caught 13 passes for 224 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Statement fromColts head coach Chuck Pagano "It was one for the ages," "Never seen anything like it. I don't know if we won one of the statistical battles -- time of possession, third down, turnovers -- I know we were probably minus-three (in turnovers) at the end of the day. But really the only one that counts and matters is the score. At the end of the day we had one more point than they had."
