Optimism overwhelmed the Indianapolis Colts fanbase on Sunday after a 23-7 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The Colts were able to move the ball on offense, created turnovers on defense and put together as complete a win as they have all season.
While other games may have had a wider final margin, this was the Colts' best win over a quality opponent. After an initial touchdown allowed by the defense and a slow start by the offense, the Colts scored 23 unanswered points in the second and third quarters to put the game away.
The Colts could face the Chiefs again in the playoffs, a game that likely would be nothing like Sunday’s contest. For one, it would take place in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium. But each team likely would have different wrinkles in their respective game plans. But with the Colts' decimation of Kansas City Sunday, there is definitely an air of confidence around Indianapolis.
With a potential playoff matchup in mind, which players played well Sunday and could have another big performance in two weeks? Find out in this week’s report card.
