3 best Wild Card weekend games in Colts history
1. Colts defeat Chiefs 45-44 in 2014 Wild Card game
In the 2013 season, Indianapolis went 12-5 and during that year, Indy beat the Kansas City Chiefs 23-7 in a regular season matchup.
However, it was Kanas City that jumped out to a 38-10 lead in the Wild Card rematch between the two teams.
At halftime, it looked like the Colts season would come to an end with an embarrassing loss. Instead, Indianapolis came out after halftime and produced the greatest comeback in franchise history.
Led by Andrew Luck’s 443 passing yards, four passing touchdowns, and recovered fumble for a touchdown, Indy clawed back into the game score by score before Luck completed a 64-yard pass to TY Hilton for the go-ahead touchdown.
Hilton finished the game with 13 receptions for 224 yards and two touchdowns.
This was only Luck’s second season in the NFL and it set the tone for his career with the Colts. While his time may have come to an end sooner than many would have wished, they will always have this historic moment to cherish.
If fans are fortunate, Indianapolis will find itself in many more Wild Card games, hopefully, the team can continue to create great moments.
