The Kansas City Chiefs will have to wait at least another year for a post season win. The Chiefs had one of the biggest collapses in NFL history by losing a game in which they led by 4 touchdowns in the second half.

Injuries and bad game management were gigantic culprits that factored into this choke job. The Chiefs lost their top two running backs, their number two wide receiver, their top corner back, a nickel back, and at the end, their pass rushing outside linebacker.

If they would have just lost the game outright, it would have been easier to swallow but they were spotted 28 touchdowns in the second half, and still couldn’t find a way to win the ballgame. The Chiefs also were +3 in turnovers. There is no way a team should win the turnover battle by that margin, and still lose the ballgame.

There were some gutsy performances but defensively, Kansas City was just plain awful. The secondary just couldn’t guard the Colts receivers. The Chiefs offense was pretty darn good at times, but not good enough to make up for the defense.

The two teams accumulated 1,049 yards from scrimmage, an NFL post season record. Obviously, the defenses barely put up a fight.

    While I agree we wasted the TOs, I am not sure they would have mattered. Luck owned the D in the second half. We we unable to nave the ball once we lost all those guys.

    What does it really matter with all the injuries we where going absolutely nowhere after this game. There is no way with all the key injuries we suffered we could of gone to Denver or New England and won.
