Until now, until this new Chiefs team, with their new quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

The last time these two teams met in the playoffs, the Colts trailed the Chiefs 38-10 in the 2013 AFC wild-card round before rallying late to win 45-44 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Saturday's 31-13 divisional round win over the Indianapolis Colts will have a special place in Chiefs' lore, the game that alleviated a.

The 46-year-old veteran, who became the NFL's all-time leading scorer this season, must now decide if he wants to carry on into a 24th campaign.

Kansas City fans weren't the only ones slinging it around on Saturday.

They've had bigger playoff meltdowns against the Colts. But they'll surely have their hands full with the high-octane Chiefs (12-4), who led the National Football League in total offense (425.6 yards per game) and scoring offense (35.3), the third-highest points per game in National Football League history.

With over six minutes left in the second quarter the Chiefs, on their own 19 yard line, made a decision to punt the ball as they were on fourth down with 20 yards to go. But in the flawless summation of their lousy afternoon, their erstwhile star kicker missed the extra point. "It's a momentum swing and needing those points going into half and (I) didn't come through for us". That left the Colts defense without some key pieces.

Chiefs: Await the Chargers-Patriots victor in the AFC title game.
