Down 38-10, Colts Beat Chiefs 45-44: Andrew Luck threw three touchdown passes after halftime, including a 64-yarder to T.Y. Hilton for the go-ahead score with 4:22 left, to lead the Indianapolis Colts from a four-TD deficit to a 45-44 comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in an AFC wild-card game Saturday.

After watching so many excellent college football games, the NFL really blows. Maybe Indy has a comeback in them, but the first half has sucked big-time.

Early in the Indy game, one of the announcers said "Indianapolis doesn't do well when trying to come from behind."

Luck led the league last year in "game-winning drives" (coming from behind to win in the fourth quarter).

Happily, the second half is much better.

Incredible second-half for Indy. Brace yourselves; Andrew Luck is about to be made into a legend.

Ugh, I missed all the NFL action today. I assume they did this without Trent Richardson, or is he still playing?

What are the odds of two dome teams playing for the title in balmy MetLife Stadium?

Too bad that N.O. has to go to Seattle instead of Carolina next week. Does not bode well.

Trent had one carry, fumbled the ball and I didn't see much of him after that.

If you wanted to watch a notable Bama back get some PT, you had to wait for the second game of the doubleheader.

And the one you'll see tonight up north of Oshkosh is the most crucial beast of the bunch to his unit, especially given the projected playing conditions.
