This Sunday, December 23rd, 2013 at 1:00 pm ET we have a very interesting game amongst two AFC rivals, with one from the South Division and one from the West Division as the Indianapolis COLTS (9-5, 5-0 1st AFC South) visit the Kansas City CHIEFS (11-3, 2-3 AFC West) with the game being played at the Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri with the weather forecast calling for Overcast, Chilly 33 degrees with wind at 12 mph/N.
For those of us who Bet on NFL and the Bet Royal’s wagering public, let it be known that the Colts, Bengals and Steelers are actually the only teams that have a chance for the remaining two wild card spots for the playoffs. So the Colts win and they make the playoffs and that also depends on QB Luck who has changed many things in Indianapolis. At the beginning of the season there were not many that expected the Colts to get this far. Well they have surprised us all and with a little luck this Sunday they may get there. It’s amazing that QB Luck this season has had pressure on 247 of his drop backs for passing which are 41 more than faced by any of the other team quarterbacks in the league. The Colts defense will have to come to life and halt the Chiefs running game if they are to win at Kansas City.
If the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line strength is on the right side and if they expect to win this game they will need to take advantage of that offensive strength and running right of center as their left of center rushing is less productive. It is anticipated to win this game the Chiefs have to take advantage of the running game. On the other hand the Chiefs WR Bowe has a good history against the Colts as in his three career games he has had 3 TD’s on 16 receptions for 225 yards. Last week with the Chiefs rout of the Raiders 56-31 their WR Charles scored five touchdowns. Their QB Smith threw four of his 5 TD passes in the game to Charles and with that win the Chiefs became only the fourth team in history to make the playoffs after having a previous year losing at minimum of 14 games. The Chiefs under Coach Reid have made some amazing accomplishments this season in his first year and we wish them a lot of luck in the remaining games this season. Also, good luck to the Colts in this game and their season.
