Chiefs to play Colts Saturday 3:35 p.m. CT

Posted Dec 29, 2013

This marks Coach Reid's 10th playoff run in 15 years as a head coach

While the Kansas City Chiefs qualified for the playoffs weeks ago, on Sunday, they learned who their first-round opponent will be during Wild Card Weekend, the Indianapolis Colts.

It was just one week ago that both teams met, with the Colts leaving Arrowhead with a 23-7 victory, despite 13 carries for 106 yards and one score by RB Jamaal Charles. Andy Reid's team will look to return the favor, when the Chiefs travel to Indianapolis for a matchup in Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday at 3:35 p.m. CT.

The Chiefs return to Indianapolis for the first time since their 28-24 victory over the Colts on Oct. 9, 2011. Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe played a huge role in the win, finishing the contest with seven receptions for 128 yards and two TDs.

The last time the Chiefs and Colts were matched up in a playoff game also occurred during Wild Card Weekend, in Indianapolis on Jan. 6, 2007, when the Colts topped the Chiefs, 23-8.

In that contest, Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson finished with 12 tackles.

Since 2005, the Chiefs and Colts have met six times (1-5), including the Wild Card matchup in 2007.

Of the six contests, four have been road games, while the last two matchups were played at Arrowhead Stadium.

But, as we all know, the most important game is always the next one, which takes place this Saturday.
