In what was their best game since a Week 7 win against the Denver Broncos, the Indianapolis Colts beat up the Kansas City Chiefs en route to a 23-7 victory on Sunday. Most impressively for Indianapolis, the Colts managed to do so on the road in legendary Arrowhead Stadium.
The two teams may end up facing each other in the Wild Card Round in the playoffs, and while that game will likely be very different, the Colts showed their full potential in this one, as both the defense and offense played as well as they have throughout the entire second half of the season.
Most importantly for Indianapolis, the offense got going, opening up the playbook and taking shots down the field. While the Colts personnel isn't going to allow it to be an elite unit this season, putting the ball in Luck's hands is the best choice, and it's shown over the last few weeks.
With a big win under their belts, the Colts have finally given their fans some good reasons for optimism with just one week to go before the playoffs.
