The Chiefs are 0-3 all-time against the Colts in the playoffs. KC will be attempting to break a seven game NFL playoff game losing streak. The Chiefs will also be trying to break the third longest active postseason victory drought in the NFL.

It's interesting that this game comes against the Colts because they have brought some miserable playoff memories to the Chiefs. In January 1996, the Kicker Who Shall Not Be Named missed three field goals as the Chiefs lost to the Colts at Arrowhead, 10-7. In January 2004, the Chiefs lost to the Colts in the no-punt game. In January 2007, the Colts beat the Chiefs 23-8. The Chiefs have a complicated history with the Colts.

Here's a quick look at the Chiefs' playoff history:

  • Total playoff games: 22
  • Record: 8-14
  • Years in playoffs: 16
