Scott Underwood: Colts bewitch Chiefs yet again

(Continued)

The Indy defense for much of the season had been comically porous against the run. The Chiefs, boasting bruising running back Larry Johnson, had one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL.

But that afternoon in the RCA Dome the Colts defense, powered by human grenade Bob Sanders, blew up the Kansas City running game and won 23-8. Indy went on to defeat Baltimore and New England (in a thrilling comeback) to reach the Super Bowl, where the Colts squished the Chicago Bears in a Miami downpour.

To get back to the Super Bowl this year, Indy would have to defeat Manning for the second time this season and then, presumably, knock out Tom Brady and the Patriots in New England.

Such a Colts run to the Super Bowl is utterly improbable — but no more so than Saturday's bewitchment of the Chiefs.
