Two very intriguing matches to start the play-offs, first up Colts and Chiefs.

11-5 Colts at home to 11-5 Chiefs whom they beat convincingly only a few weeks ago 23-7 in Kansas!!.... yet....

..The spread given is only in the 2 to 2.5 range
..Listening to my two regular NFL shows (podcasts), most contributors fancied a Chiefs upset (so much so, I was thinking it couldn't be considered an upset anymore)
..I fancy the Chiefs!
..Clay fancies the Chiefs!! Cry (only joking, ClayHappy)
..In the our play-off competition its 4 for Chiefs, 1 for Colts and 1 No call


I'm a bit perturbed because I thought I would be reasonably isolated comfortably sitting on the Chiefs and able to say "I told you so"!!Laugh... but the only people who can do this are Colts backers!!

For me, its not about stats etc...

I think Chiefs are a TEAM in the true sense, well-coached, not spectacular but potent enough on both defense or offense to have a big day on either side of the ball... don't see them beating themselves. Also, have been a bit disrespected this year, "easy schedule", "have beaten no one" etc. etc. Think today is the day they show they are real contenders.

Great admirer of Andrew Luck...but lack of real weapons will catch-up, this week or next. I think this week.

Its not a confident vote, but a comfortable vote.

A Houston radio announcer was immortalized on NFL Films with the statement "The lights are on here at Rich Stadium, they've been on since this morning, you could pretty much turn them out on the Bills right now."[1]
