NFL playoffs: Chiefs at Colts

Sat., Jan. 4, 2014

Line: Colts by 1. Over/under: 46 1/2

Weather: Dome.

Synopsis: Rematch of a game Indy won 23-7 on Dec. 22 in K.C., and the Chiefs enter this one having lost five of their last seven contest after a 9-0 start. But the Chiefs are healthier now than they were for previous game with the Colts. They expect to have receiver Dwayne Bowe, linebacker Justin Houston, left tackle Braden Albert, and right tackle Eric Fisher in the lineup. But key linebacker Tamba Hali (knee) is iffy. Indy has won its last three, allowing just 20 points total and coming up with eight turnovers in the span. K.C.’s once stout defense has fizzed of late, having given up nearly 28 points a game in its last seven. Pick: Chiefs 27-24
