Can we really expect them to travel across the country twice in two weeks and then beat the King of cold weather teams in sub-freezing conditions?
The NFL could move the AFC Championship Game to an alternate venue if the Los Angeles Chargers and Indianapolis Colts win their road games this weekend. Mahomes has had an unbelievable first year as a starter and they have weapons all over the place, but the defense can be run on and that can be a tough obstacle to overcome at playoff time.
Maybe it was the bye week coming into play, allowing the five up front to be particularly fresh.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves. What's more, the Chiefs' defense has shown itself to be vulnerable time and time again. "He's a hell of a leader, a hell of a player and I can't wait to go win some more games with this guy".
The Colts have a dominant offensive line and a swarming young defense. That's his second of the game and it's 24-3 into the fourth quarter. The No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs and the home-field advantage to which it is attached. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins played for the first time since hurting his foot in November and made it through the game. Los Angeles won 30-22, and advance to the NFC championship game. They had no defensive penalties against the Raiders.
"It's great, but you know what?" It's hard to lose when you've come this far with the team that we have and the guys that we have, so credit to the Chiefs. "Everybody's taking up their game". ESPN highlights that the Colts are 6-0 this year against the spread (ATS) in six games they've played against a team with a winning record. However, the reality is that for all the success the Rams have had over the last two years, they were bounced from the playoffs early last year. On third down, the Cowboys threw an incomplete pass and that began a streak of four straight series without points.
With persistent snow turning Arrowhead Stadium into a winter wonderland, the Chiefs (13-4) waltzed all over a Colts defense that almost shut out the Texans a week ago.

It also notes that six nearby Broward sheriff's deputies "did not immediately move towards the gunshots to confront the shooter". Rick Scott , had refused to suspend the sheriff, saying he wanted to wait until investigations were complete before deciding.
They won't have that ugly history hanging over them heading into the AFC title game. Prescott had Michael Gallup open over the middle of the field on a second-and-7 from the Rams' 36-yard line.
"They outcoached us, they outplayed us", Reich said.
This weekend there is a lot to get pumped for as a football fan. "That's all now in the rearview mirror".
This match-up would bring 41-year-old Tom Brady up against Mahomes in what could serve as a passing of the torch from one generation of quarterback to the next. However, against the likes of Dallas and Carolina, they demonstrated that they can be stopped for periods of time. Dee Ford stripped Luck and fellow linebacker Justin Houston plopped on the ball, ruining another red-zone opportunity. The Chiefs recovered and were never again seriously threatened. Look for an upset here: Colts 31, Chiefs 28. They scored a touchdown of their own after each of the Indianapolis TDs.
By that point, the Chiefs were cruising toward the next round of the playoffs. When things started to go bad, they went bad in a big way. That will continue against an Eagles defense that is good but not great.
"All the way around, everybody contributed", Reid said.
