The storyline heading into this game was the obvious: the playoff woes of the Chiefs in years past.
Indianapolis (11-6), who went on the road to defeat the Houston Texans in last week's Wild Card round, can become the first No 6 seed to reach a conference championship game since 2010, when the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets accomplished the feat.
They've had bigger playoff meltdowns against the Colts. In that contest, Lawrence Tynes missed a 23-yarder for Kansas City. Watkins caught six balls for 62 yards. For as good as Luck's stats were - second in the National Football League in touchdowns (39) and a career high in completion percentage (67.3), completions (430) and attempts (639) - his rejuvenated belief in having fun again and not letting the game consume him stood out. I really think that oozes out of him, and I think what we tried to do this year was create a culture where that was a premium.
He missed an extra-point try after a T.Y. That left the Colts defense without some key pieces. Many of us haven't seen this team in the AFC title game since we were pretty young.
