The Kansas City Chiefs lost an eighth-straight postseason game on Saturday, losing 45-44 to the Indianapolis Colts after holding a 28-point lead in the third quarter.
Injuries slowed down the Kansas City Chiefs in the second half of the NFL season, but now they are much healthier as the playoffs approach.

Just two weeks ago, the Kansas City Chiefs lost at home to the Indianapolis Colts in a game that sealed the AFC West team’s postseason fate. Can they flip that outcome on the road in the playoffs?
Andrew Luck threw for 282 yards and one touchdown, Robert Mathis reclaimed the NFL sacks lead and Adam Vinatieri joined the 2,000-point club Sunday as the Colts routed Jacksonville 30-10.
Reeling from their worst loss of the year, the Miami Dolphins can still make the playoffs. Whether they deserve to is open for debate.
