Six years later, it was the Colts again. This time with Peyton Manning at quarterback and a 38-31 shootout. Seven years after that, the Ravens came to town and dished out a 30-7 defeat.

Next, a divisional-round loss to the Steelers in 2016 and a wild-card loss to the Titans in 2017. For the first time ever, the Chiefs will host a postseason game for the third straight year.
