The Kansas City Chiefs faced off against the Indianapolis Colts earlier this afternoon. In a very hard-fought victory the Chiefs edged the Colts 28-24. The Chiefs, who won their first game last week against the Minnesota Vikings, are now 2-3, while the Colts are still winless after five games.
Both of these squads have had a rough go of things this season. Injuries to superstar players have ultimately changed the direction of the season for both teams.
The Chiefs lost tight end Tony Moeaki in the preseason finale to a torn ACL. Then they lost starting safety Eric Berry in Week 1 of the season with the same injury, and finally they lost starting running back Jamaal Charles in Week 2 also with a torn ACL. In three weeks their whole season changed.
The Colts have been without the face of their franchise, Peyton Manning, the whole year. Manning, who had neck surgery, is still positive that he can play at some point this season. If he can somehow get on the field, he might have to save the Colts from going winless.
Here are the winners and losers from this AFC matchup.
