Research Notes

With his 13th reception, T.Y. Hilton has set the Colts’ franchise record for receptions in a playoff game, originally set by Raymond Berry in 1958.

  [+]

Andrew Luck led his 11th career 4th quarter/overtime game-winning drive in the Colts win, the most in the NFL since the start of last season, including the playoffs.

  [+]

Alex Smith rushed for 41 yards in the 1st half, his second most in ANY half in his career (49 yards in 1st half of Week 2 vs Cowboys). It’s the fourth-most rush yards by a quarterback in the 1st half of a playoff game in the last 10 seasons.

  [+]

Andrew Luck got off to a hot start Saturday, but was quickly cooled…

T.Y. Hilton: 1st red zone touchdown since catching 2 in Week 9 at Texans (3rd overall)

1st touchdown overall since Week 9

The Chiefs entered the playoffs having lost their last 2 regular season games, which isn’t a good omen for Kansas City. There have only been 2 teams to win the Super Bowl after losing their last 2 regular season games (the 2009 Saints, 1967 Packers). Every other team won at least 1 of their last 2 regular season games.

Justin Houston is probable for today’s game while Tamba Hali is a game-time decision. The Chiefs would prefer it if both played, as their sack rate nearly doubles with both on field.

  [+]

Donnie Avery‘s 79-yard touchdown catch was the longest touchdown reception in the playoffs since the 2011 Wild Card round, when Demaryius Thomas caught an 80-yard pass from Tim Tebow in overtime.
