Greetings, Raider Nation! Today is the first day of the Divisional Playoff Round, and that means home games for all the teams who earned first-round byes. We have two games in tap today, but the first is between our Most Hates Rival the Chiefs, and the Indianapolis Colts who might be the hottest team in the league right now.
We all know about the Chiefs, as quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the third QB ever to throw for 50 touchdown passes in a season. But the weather today is awful, and the Arrowhead seats and field are covered in snow. Can Mahomes, who played his college games in warm and dry Texas, adapt to the conditions?
Meanwhile, the Colts absolutely trashed the Texans last week and may have an advantage in this game in the trenches, where bad-weather games are usually decided. Will the KC defense be able to slow down Andrew Luck at all? And if they couldn’t slow our own Jared Cook, can they handle Eric Ebron?
This game can be seen on NBC at 1:30 PM Pacific. Enjoy the game!
