Colts 23, Chiefs 7

Colts show scary possible preview

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Colts had watched the Chiefs march downfield for an easy score on the first series, yet nobody on their sideline seemed to be worried.

Quarterback Andrew Luck answered by calmly picking apart the Chiefs defense, Donald Brown had touchdowns running and receiving, and Indianapolis rolled.

If South Division champion Indianapolis ends up as the No. 4 seed in the AFC, and with the wild-card Chiefs assured of No. 5, the teams would meet again in two weekends at Lucas Oil Stadium.

"There was no panic," said Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who had two interceptions. "When they got that touchdown we were like, 'Aww, it's okay.' "

The Chiefs' Alex Smith passed for 153 yards but fumbled once and was picked off twice, and running back Knile Davis also fumbled the ball away. "It was a team effort in not a very good way," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "You can't pull your foot off the accelerator when you get out that quick."
