In NFL Divisional Championship, we will see Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs.
The Indianapolis Colts had an interesting start of the season, starting 1-5 but then turned the season around, in order to get to the postseason. They defeated Houston 21-7 in the wildcard round when Andrew Luck threw for 222 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Marlon Mack had a big game on the ground, rushing for 148 yards and a TD. The team is scoring 27.1 points per game while allowing 21.
The Kansas City Chiefs had a spectacular season mainly because of their young QB Patrick Mahomes. Even with Kareem Hunt cut from the squad, the Chiefs are still one of the truly best offenses in the game. The Chiefs are leading the NFL in points per game with 35.3. Patrick Mahomes threw for 5097 yards, 50 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions and he was sacked just 26 times. The Chiefs’ defense is one of the worst, however, ranked 31st in yards allowed per game with 405.
What we saw from the Colts surprised us. They play much better defense and they can make enough stops when needed the most, in order to win games. Their offense will certainly put at least 30 on the Chiefs while the defense will do the rest of the job. The spread is a bit high and I’m going with the road team.
