NFL Playoff picks and predictions: Chiefs vs. Colts 2014

Jamie Squire

Kansas City hits the road looking for its first playoff win in 20 years, while Andrew Luck hopes to find his inaugural postseason victory.

SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

On Saturday afternoon, the Indianapolis Colts will host the Kansas City Chiefs at Lucas Oil Stadium to kick off the NFL playoffs.

Both teams come in at 11-5, with very recent history against each other. The Colts went to Arrowhead Stadium in Week 16 and thrashed the Chiefs, winning 23-7 on the back of four turnovers. Now, Indianapolis will have to beat Kansas City again if it wants its first playoff win in the post-Peyton Manning era.

Over at CBS Sports, Pete Prisco believes they will indeed get that victory thanks to Andrew Luck and some home cooking. Of the other seven CBS analysts, only one chose the Chiefs to advance, favoring what they saw two weeks ago to repeat itself.

Our experts here at SB Nation are split right down the middle, with three picking on either side of the fence. The former NFL player of the group, Stephen White, went with the Chiefs.
