Ohhhhh, it’s a beautiful and perfect day. The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs is upon us. The greatest weekend in sports. The greatest weekend in football. The only good thing about January.
The first game is an enormous one. Over the last month of the season, the Colts have been better than the Chiefs. They have an offensive line that picks up the line of scrimmage, moves, and can block Kansas City’s only good defensive players (Chris Jones, Dee Ford, Justin Houston, and Allen Bailey). They can control the clock.
BUT the Chiefs still have an all-time great passing offense, skill players Indy can’t cover, and the Colts’ pass rush is mediocre. This game is even before kickoff. Add some snow, Andy Reid’s nightmares, the Chiefs’ inability to win a game at home, and it’s downright delicious.
Here’s your open thread for this afternoon’s game. Spend the rest of the day here. Hang out. Talk about whatever. Just remember that the standard commenting rules apply.
