INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts pulled off the second-biggest comeback in NFL playoff history, rallying from a 28-point second-half deficit to post a 45-44 Wild Card win on Saturday afternoon.
Kansas City led 38-10 early in the third quarter after Alex Smith connected with Knile Davis, but as he’s done many times in his short career, Andrew Luck rallied his team all the way back. T.Y. Hilton hauled in the game-winning reception with 4:21 remaining – one of 13 catches on the day for the receiver, who racked up 224 yards and a pair of scores.
Jamaal Charles left the game early for Kansas City with concussion-like symptoms and did not return.
Kevin Kugler and James Lofton called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
