The Kansas City Chiefs defense had heard nothing but negative critique all season long. With analysts saying that their defense would spoil the Patrick Mahomes led team, and cost them a chance to chase their first Super Bowl appearance in decades. Well, that defense was a big part of the reason why the Chiefs are just one step away. The Chiefs were able to shut down red hot Andrew Luck and the high powered Indianapolis Colts offense in the AFC divisional round game. They were able to hold Andrew Luck to just 203 yards passing while running back Marlon Mack was a no factor on the ground. He had just 46 yards of rushing before leaving the game late in the fourth quarter with a hip injury. On the flip side, the young superstar Patrick Mahomes and his offense had themselves a field day. Mahomes threw for 278 yards and had a rushing touchdown, Damien Williams ran through snow and muck for 129 yards and another score, and Tyreke Hill had 72 receiving yards and a touchdown run. It was an overall dominant performance for the Kansas City Chiefs, as they will make their first AFC title game appearance since January 1994.
