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.

Today, the Chiefs have a chance to reverse a trio of narratives, relating to their quarter-century of playoff futility at home, their inability to win big games in 2018, and their 0-for-4 all-time performance against the Colts in a single-elimination setting.
