The Colts beat the Chiefs 19-13 on Sunday night in a game that could be a preview of things to come. Could these teams possibly meet each other again in the playoffs?
The Colts had to play a really tough team in Kansas City on Sunday. They came out on top because they had a whole team effort. But both teams were very banged up going into the matchup. Is this a matchup that they revisit come January in playoff time?
Based on the quality of the Chiefs, they will definitely be playing in January. Their team is solid on offense and good enough on defense to win a lot of games. They will probably win their division and could fight for home field advantage in the playoffs.
The Colts on the other hand are a different story. They have been up and down this whole season. Sometimes they look like a really formidable team, and other times they look like they could end up with a top 10 pick. There’s really no consistency so far.
But if they play like they did on Sunday, they can definitely meet up with this Chiefs team again. They have the running game to win a lot of contests. They just have to make sure their defense plays more like it did against Kansas City and less like it has the rest of the season.
Would the result be the same? Who knows. Both teams would likely be more healthy and have their key guys back for the matchup. It could play out entirely differently. But one thing is for certain; it would be a great playoff fight.
