This loss was different.
Sure, the Colts are now 0-5 and look to be the leader of the pack in the running for Andrew Luck, but we saw yet another Indianapolis Colts team show up Sunday afternoon.
We saw a spirited team show up in the first half. It was clicking on all cylinders. The running game was solid, Curtis Painter hit some big plays, Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis got their sacks, and the defense managed to get off the field on third downs. Heck, even the special teams looked pretty good in coverage.
Then another team showed up in the second half. A not so spirited team. A team that didn't score any points and allowed the Chiefs to come all the way back.
Yes, the Colts are 0-5. But if the team can play the way it did during the first half of Sunday for an entire game, the Colts could quickly snap out of their losing ways.
Here are the five biggest takeaways from the Colts' loss to the Chiefs.
