The quest of the Kansas City Chiefs to go from worst to first is off to an incredible start in the first half of their Wild Card game against the Indianapolis Colts on the road Saturday.
After trading scores with the Colts to begin the game, the Chiefs took a 10-7 lead after they were stuffed near the goal line following an amazing catch and run play from wide receiver Dwayne Bowe that spanned 63 yards.
On their next possession, they took things to another level as they obliterated the Indy defense on a scoring play from Alex Smith to wide receiver Donnie Avery.
Facing a 3rd-and-10 from their own 21 yard line, Smith dropped back and found Avery for this 79 yard bomb behind the Colts secondary to capture themselves a 17-7 lead early in this one, really putting the Colts’ backs against the wall:
Now, this entire season, the Colts have not been the best first half team out there, but they can’t afford a let down at a time like this, and that’s exactly what they’re setting themselves up for.
If this secondary keeps playing like this against these athletes that the Chiefs have–like Avery–then this could get out of hand quickly.
