The Indianapolis Colts outscored the Kansas City Chiefs 35-13 in the second half of a wild NFL wild-card playoff game, capping one of the greatest comebacks in postseason history.

But the play that helped turn the tide in the Colts’ 45-44 victory in Indianapolis was an Andrew Luck touchdown with less than 11 minutes left in the game. It was improbable, it was ridiculous, it was preposterous, it was … well, just watch as Luck scoops up Donald Brown’s fumble at the five and takes it into the endzone, cutting the Chiefs’ lead to 41-38.


More surprising may have been Luck’s final line: 443 yards passing on 29-of-45 completions for four touchdowns, with three interceptions. He carried the ball seven times for 45 yards and had that touchdown, the one everybody is talking about.
