Current Records: Kansas City 4-0-0; Indianapolis 2-2-0
What to Know
Indianapolis has been a homebody their last two matches, but they are heading out on Sunday. They will take on Kansas City at 8:20 p.m. ET at Arrowhead Stadium. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, Indianapolis now face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.
It was a hard-fought matchup, but the Colts had to settle for a 31-24 defeat against Oakland last week. RB Marlon Mack had a pretty forgettable game: he rushed for 39 yards on 11 carries.
Meanwhile, it was all tied up at the half for Kansas City and Detroit, but Kansas City stepped up in the second half. Kansas City got past Detroit with less than a touchdown to spare, ending up at 34-30. The victory was familiar territory for the Chiefs, who now have four in a row.
Kansas City’s win lifted them to 4-0 while Indianapolis’ loss dropped them down to 2-2. One last thing to keep an eye on: the Colts gashed the right side of the field in their last contest, rushing toward the right sideline for 56 yards on 5.6 yards per rush. This is exactly where the Chiefs have most struggled to stymie the rushing attack, however; they have allowed 274 rushing yards on the right this season compared to 151 rushing yards allowed left and 177 allowed middle.
