Chiefs (11-5) at Colts (11-5)

LINE: INDIANAPOLIS by 2½

  • In most other sports, teams heading to the playoffs with momentum tend to fare well. That is not always the case in the NFL and we need only look back at last year’s Ravens as most recent proof. It certainly doesn’t hurt to be on a roll and the Colts have looked better the past three weeks than they have for most of the season. Conversely, the Chiefs do not look quite the same as the team that opened the season with nine straight wins before winning just two of their final seven. But things are never quite as they appear in this up-and-down league. Indy’s three-game streak included the Texans and Jaguars, a pair of teams that will have two of the first three picks in April’s NFL draft. The other win was against these same Chiefs just two weeks ago. Many are basing their choice for this one on that result — and that can be a dangerous mistake.
