Colts vs Chiefs

After looking like they had buried the Chiefs early, the Colts fell to pieces in the second half, and allowed a Chiefs team that appears to be gaining something approaching momentum to beat them in a contest that has, given the Vikings’ result against the Cardinals, further solidified the opinion that the once vaunted Colts may be picking first next year in the draft.

The Colts will win games and the Chiefs may struggle to find many more as the tension ramps-up so we may see Old Blue climbing off the foot of the table as the season progresses, but unless the team believes they have a chance of challenging for the title, we might see Indianapolis trying out some new players and schemes in preparation for next year. What they really need, though is a Quarterback who is ready, willing and able to inherit Manning’s mantle that the Hall-of-Fame lock may never re-shoulder.
