My Player of the Game
Marlon Mack
Game Notes
Mack rushed for over 100 yards against one of the better defenses in the playoffs. The Colts were able to move the ball freely. The Colts defense is for real too. The complete shut down the Texans offense and prevented them from getting into any real rhythm. Kansas City, watch out!
