NFL Playoffs 2014 preview: Chiefs vs. Colts

In this Week 16 rematch, the Chiefs travel to Indianapolis in the weekend's only game where the weather won't be a factor. Will the return of Justin Houston reinvigorate the Chiefs defense? Can Alex Smith take advantage of a banged-up Indy secondary? Can the average fan tell Indianapolis and Kansas City apart? Matt Ufford and the crew preview the game and make their picks.

The Indianapolis Colts secondary should have Vontae Davis and Greg Toler ready to go on Saturday, but the question is whether or not the pair will be able to perform up to their full capabilities. Also injured is Chiefs offensive tackle Eric Fisher, the first overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, who has been ruled out for Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:35 p.m. ET at Lucas Oil Stadium and will be televised on NBC.
