Colts @ Chiefs 2019 AFC Divisional Round Playoff Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Greetings, our Blue Horseshoe is 1-0 in the postseason, and are back for another NFL Postseason Game Day and afternoon  Colts fans! :)  Our  AFC #6 Playoff  Seed, and 11-6 Indianapolis Colts again lead off the NFL Postseason Weekend in consecutive Saturday afternoon, as they are in the Kansas City, Missouri, area to play the  AFC #1 Playoff Seed, 12-4,  and AFC West Division Champions Chiefs in the 2019 AFC Divisional Playoff Game.

 

Veteran Colts WR T. Y. Hilton has, and continues to battle his ankle injury he has suffered in the past month since the 23-0 victory to the Dallas Cowboys, but could likely be game ready and was neither listed as questionable nor put on this weeks injury report despite participating in one team practice.  Marlon Mack also has to perform a steady ground game through the cold field at Arrowhead Stadium.  Mack just needed 4 yards in the season finale at Tennessee to reach !,000 yards, as Frank Gore accomplished in 2017, and Joseph Addai the last Colts running back to run the before Gore  back in 2007.

 

However, WR Ryan Grant (toe) and DT/DE Tyquan Lewis (knee) are out because of their injuries,  Also  starter Safety/DB Malik Hooker (foot) and DT/DE Denico Autry have missed significant practice time this week, and will be a gametime decision by Colts Head Coach Frank Reich and his coaching staff and team medical staff if both players could be ready to play competitively.

 

Our Colts along with the Chiefs  players, are expected to dress warmly as they compete on the Arrowhead Stadium playing field,   exposing to the outside  cold elements at Arrowhead Stadium during this afternoon's game.  

 

Steady snow with cloudy skies and limited visibility at 31 degrees, feels like 23 degrees, is the local forecast inside Arrowhead Stadium, in the Harry S. Truman Sports complex at Independence, Missouri, east of Downtown Kansas City, for the 4:35 PM  Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 57% precipitation, 92% humidity, and north/northeast winds at 11 miles per hour.

 

If our   Colts win at Kansas City this afternoon,  Indianapolis will  again travel on away on the road  next Sunday for the 2019 AFC Championship Game, and  face the winner of the L.A. Chargers @ Patriots, either at Carson, California, or at Foxborough, Massachusetts.

 

Saturday afternoon's contest also feature NFL quarterbacks considered for postseason accolades.  Our Colts Andrew Luck is a serious candidate for NFL Comeback Player Of The Year. Luck first had to overcome both his in-season lacerated kidney and partially torn abdominal muscle injuries  he suffered during the 2015 NFL season that November.  Andrew also had postseason surgery to repair his right throwing shoulder after the 2016 NFL season, followed by being placed on injured reserve because of his slow healing and rehab on his shoulder during the 2017 NFL season.  

 

This past 2018 Colts regular season, Luck threw 39 touchdown passes, completed 439 of his 630 passes attempted for 4,593 yards and a 67.3 completion percentage, and ranked #11 in the NFL with his 98.7 passing rating.

 

Chiefs second-year player  Patrick Mahomes is also a  candidate for NFL Player Of The Year,  for both his production of throwing 50 touchdown passes, most by an NFL QB in the 2018 NFL season, and help lead the Chiefs to their third straight  AFC West Division title, and 11th overall for Kansas City.

 

Kansas City statistically were #1 in the NFL in both Total Offense 425.6 Yards Per Game, and Points Per Game at 35.3.  However,  the Chiefs  Total Defense   and Passing Defense was  also ranked #31  out of 32 teams, above the Arizona Cardinals, each allowing 405.5 YPG and 273.4 YPG to opponents during the 2018 NFL regular season.

 

Indianapolis is ranked #7 in the NFL in Total Offense at 386.2 YPG and #5 in scoring at 27.1 PPG, while the Colts are ranked #11 in Total Defense allowing their opponents 339.4 YPG, and #10 in points allowed at 21.5 PPG

 

Indianapolis also is in their 29th playoff  and postseason appearance since the franchise  began and entered the NFL as the Baltimore Colts.

 

Colts  also leads the all-time regular and postseason series entering today with their 16-9-0 record in today's 26th meeting, which includes 12 regular season wins and 4 postseason games.  Indianapolis has won all 4 postseason games over Kansas City,  10-7 in January 1996 and 38-31 in January 2004 in their AFC Divisional Round Playoff Games, both played in Kansas City.  and later defeated the Chiefs  by the scores of 23-8 on January 2007, and 45-44 on January 2014, both games played at the RCA Dome and the real Lucas Oil Stadium in the AFC Wild Card Games.

 

Indianapolis also has a winning record in road games played at Arrowhead Stadium, with their 9-4-0 record entering today, including 8 regular season games, and 1 postseason game (2013 AFC Wild Card Game).

 

In the recent postseason meeting between the Colts and the Chiefs in the 2004 AFC Wild Card Playoff Game,  the Chiefs held their biggest lead of the game at 38-10 early in the third quarter.  However, Indianapolis outscored Kansas City in the second half   35-6.  Andrew Luck threw the game winning touchdown, a 64-yard pass to T.Y. Hilton, followed by Adam Vinatieri's PAT with 4:21 remaining in the fourth quarter, to win 45-44 at LOS back on January 4, 2014.

 

Kansas City defeated Indianapolis 30-14 in the last regular season meeting,  played at LOS back on October 30, 2016, with Andrew Luck completing 19 of his 35 passes for 210 yards, and 2 TD's for the Colts.

 

Al Michaels and former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Cris Collinsworth are announcing the live game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Michele Tafoya for The NFL On NBC Sports, seen and simulcast in the USA and internationally, and locally on WTHR NBC Channel 13, all media seen live on HD.

 

Similar to  last Saturday afternoon in the Colts victory at the Houston Texans during the 2019 AFC Wild Card Playoff Game, today's Colts @ Chiefs 2019 AFC Divisional Round Playoff Game, and all NFL 2019 postseason games, including the 2019 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, are simulcasted and seen on network television, in your devices through your local cable provider, and free in both your cell phone and iPad through the NFL mobile app.

Referee John Hussey leads his NFL officiating crew to supervise the field action between the Colts and the Chiefs. He is in his 17th season, and 4th as a referee, A Idaho State University graduate, his professional occupation is a sales representative for a retail logistics group.

 

NO injuries, let's hope our Colts can return to the AFC Championship Game for the first time since 2014  if they defeat the Chiefs, earn to be 2-0 in the 2019 NFL Playoffs, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!  :rock::coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltsfb: :coltslogo: . :D

Thanks again for a great opening, LOS!  Can't wait for game time to arrive.  Super excited for this one!

 

Keep the oxygen close to our RB's as we're going to use them a lot today.  Hopefully our OLine stays free of injuries and we'll take this one, 30-27.

Wow.  I guess I'm some ways you hate us playing the Chiefs in The playoffs.

Hope all goes well.

(sorry, couldn't resist that one.  It may be too "deep" for some, though)

Don't tempt me... I do think the combined psychology of sports fans plus internet if fascinating. I mean, I wonder what some posters are actually like in real life.

There was a thread that morphed into a bit of that a while back.  It was interesting to get to know who people really were.  I haven't "introduced" myself in that Member Intro thread.  Bet that is somewhat enlightening.

 

Is it game time yet???!!

I have a feeling we're all a little different face-to-face.  I know I'm a little more introverted in real life than I am on these forums.

 

I've accused some members like @NewColtsFan, @throwing BBZ, @BOTT, @crazycolt1, and @DougDew of being condescending in their posts (and I'm sure I'm guilty of it too), but I assume everyone is very nice and respectful when they're face-to-face with others.

 

There's just more of a personal connection when you're face-to-face with someone and can see their facial expressions and tone and emotional intention.  As opposed to just reading what they typed in whatever tone you're using in your head without really knowing how they meant it to come off while they were typing it.

 

Bottom line is we're all Colts fans on the same team, and we're all rooting for a win today!!!  Go Colts!  :colts:

Really looking forward to the game, son's room all set up, 9.35pm kick off in Scotland . A bit of a late night but will be worth it when we get the victory.

 

On a side note, I was going to post some pictures of our recent trip to Indy but wasn't sure if that was the done thing on this forum. I know it is not the norm on soccer forums over here.

I have thought before about what it would be like to meet some of the members of this forum. Wasn’t there a get together years ago before the season?

    • I agree, but I think he can develop it well. He has great spin on the ball, just needs to work on slowing it down sometimes, something that can be easily fixed with good coaching.   However, I did another one and got Brown again with Love falling to the second. Here you go!  
    • If the draft falls this way, it is an OUTSTANDING draft!!! 
    • This is a mock I would love to see happen for Indy. We would get help at every position of need, provided Ballard gets someone signed at TE in free agency to compliment Doyle. This will be my last mock until Free agency is mostly over.    Indy trades 13th overall pick to Miami for their 18th overall pick and early 2nd rounder. (Miami is most likely targeting either a QB or OT here.)   Round 1 Pick 18 (MIA): Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina Ballard gets an impact 3 tech DT to be the center of this defense. I think this is right around where Kinlaw will go.  Round 2 Pick 2: Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville  Ballard gets his massive OT who can take over for Costanzo at LT  when he calls it a career. I think we will have a shot at either Becton or Austin Jackson at the 34th pick for OT help.  Round 2 Pick 7 (MIA): Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU One of my favorite WRs of this draft, Jefferson would give this offense a very competitive go to option to compliment Hilton and could take over the #1 WR role in a year. Again, right around where he looks to be drafted. Reminds me of Davante Adams.   Round 2 Pick 12: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State Love is a bit of a wild card at QB. Some think he will go 1st round, while other experts believe he could fall to the late 2nd round. He is still very raw and needs time before he can start. Good thing we have Reich who could work with him on reading defenses.    Indy trades 3rd round pick to move down with Dallas, and picks up an extra 5th in the process. Round 3 Pick 18 (DAL): Antoine Winfield Jr., FS/SS, Minnesota He had a great 2019 season and would be a very good option as a 3rd safety in this Eberflus scheme. Would also give us insurance if Hooker doesn't progress and Ballard wants to move on. Winfield Jr. simply makes plays in every aspect of the game.  Round 4 Pick 16: Van Jefferson, WR, Florida Ballard selects another Senior Bowl standout in Van Jefferson. He is a bit older, coming into the league at 24, but he showed in the Senior Bowl that he is a very good route runner with reliable hands and decent speed. Plus how cool would it be to have the Jefferson boys at WR for the future? Round 5 Pick 14: Alton Robinson, DE, Syracuse Underrated DE prospect here. Syracuse also seems to produce good pass rushers. Chandler Jones being the latest example. Robinson could learn in a rotation right off the bat, and could earn more playing time once either Houston or Sheard leaves.    Round 5 Pick 18 (DAL): Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky A mauling type of OG, Stenberg could eventually challenge Glow for the RG spot.  Round 6 Pick 12: Raequan Williams, DT, Michigan State I could see Margus Hunt being released so we will need more depth at DT. Round 6 Pick 14: Lamical Perine, RB, Florida Very good RB this late in the draft. Would give more of a physical RB presence which this team needs in the backfield.  Round 7 Pick 13: Rodrigo Blankenship, K, Georgia Adam is not kicking for this team anymore, gotta find his longterm replacement.
    • My biggest issue is "rockets underneath" on top of the struggles with pressure down the middle. Well, we already have a big armed QB (that won't use his big arm much down the field) that throws rockets to his RBs and Eason's touch would have to improve considerably than what he has shown so far.   Of the QBs that may be within our first or second round picks range, Herbert, Love, Fromm, Gordon all have better touch underneath than Eason, and that is a big part of playing successful QB in the NFL.
