The Chiefs ended what had been a massive jinx when it comes to playoff games on Saturday.

The Kansas Chiefs managed to dominate the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday 31-13 and there were several key aspects that contributed to KC's return after a long hiatus to the AFC championship game.

1

Chiefs bottled up Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck had a fantastic comeback season in 2018. That comeback ended abruptly against a previously maligned Chiefs defense. He completed just 19 of 36 passes for 203 yards and one TD.

2

Chiefs got up early

Kansas City opened a 17-0 lead in the first half. That forced the Colts to become a one dimensional team early on. That took Marlon Mack out of the game and let the Chiefs roll to victory.

Surprise attack from Damien Williams

Damien Williams had three carries before December. He rushed for 100 yards exactly once all season. Then he exploded for 129 yards and a touchdown while catching five passes for 25 yards.
