It wasn't easy, but the Chiefs pulled away with a victory after trailing 17-0.
Todd Haley's football team got off to an 0-3 start, but now have picked up their second consecutive win as they try to stay within the divisional race.
There is no doubt that the Chiefs look much different lately as opposed to the beginning of the season.
When most teams trail 17-0, it is hard for them to overcome it-- most would go on to eventually get blown out.
Pierre Garcon recorded four receptions for 119 yards and two touchdowns to help build an early lead in the first half. However, Garcon only caught one catch for six yards in the second half.
The Indianapolis Colts scored all 24 of their points in the first half and never found the end zone in the second half.
The Chiefs defense bolstered up and limited Curtis Painter's hot offense.
Teams would rather remain consistent from start to finish. But teams can also learn a lesson in wins like this. Hopefully the Chiefs can take this win and build off of it and put together a better start in future games.
Jackie Battle put together his first 100-yard game since joining the league in 2007 as an undrafted free agent. Battle has earned a spot on the roster every year as a third string running back. Today, Battle proved he is just as good as any tailback on the team.
Battle ran the ball 19 times for 119 yards on the ground to help Kansas City move the ball and eventually win the game.
If Battle continues this level of play throughout the season, he will find himself splitting the carries with Jamaal Charles in the future after he recovers from his torn ACL.
Battle only had 51 carries for 155 rushing yards in his career coming into this game.
After throwing one touchdown and four interceptions in the first two games combined, Matt Cassel has thrown more touchdowns than interceptions in each of the last three games.
This is Cassel's third time in his career throwing for four touchdown passes in a game and his second time doing so as a Chief.
Cassel connected with two different receivers, each of them catching two touchdowns in the game.
He continues to play better and seems much more relaxed under Bill Muir's offense. Cassel's ability to play at a high level without Charlie Weis was questioned by many people, including yours truly.
Even though Cassel has succeeded recently against winless teams, it was important for him to have this type of game as he continued to get closer to the hot seat.
Steve Breaston has been electric in the last three games for the Chiefs.
Breaston has had two catches of over 40 yards to bring the Chiefs in the red zone and eventually put a total of 10 points after those two big catches earlier this season.
Breaston contributed this time by catching a touchdown pass for the first time since joining Kansas City. Breaston's contributions were huge as he found the end zone twice against Indianapolis.
If Cassel continues to play well with Breaston and Dwayne Bowe, the passing game will continue to improve when Jonathan Baldwin returns.
Wins don't come easy in the National Football League. However, after starting 0-3 against, the Chiefs have only picked up wins against winless teams.
While Cassel, Bowe, Breaston and Battle had a great game, it will be hard to believe they could put together a similar performance against a more challenging team.
After their bye week, the Chiefs will visit the Oakland Raiders in Week 7. The Raiders are on top of the league in rushing and have been dominant in a couple of other areas.
If Kansas City pulls out a victory at Oakland, then we can all begin to say that the Chiefs are for real and are back in the divisional race.
For now, the Chiefs have only proven that they are not the worst team in the NFL by defeating two winless teams.
