Colts Beat Chiefs In 2nd Biggest NFL Playoff Comeback Ever

Colts Complete 2nd-Largest Comeback In NFL Playoff History Vs. Chiefs – SB Nation

Andrew Luck has been held in contrast to Peyton Manning since entering the league in 2012, but the second-year quarterback cemented his own legacy on Saturday when he lead the Indianapolis Colts to one of the largest comebacks in NFL history against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Indianapolis looked dead and buried when the team trailed by 28 points early in the third quarter. Luck was out of sync with his receivers, throwing three interceptions. The Chiefs’ defense got regular pressure and the Colts lacked a reliable run game to steady their quarterback.

Suddenly things started to change.

A 10-yard rushing touchdown by Donald Brown was quickly followed by a sack-fumble and another Colts touchdown. The Chiefs answered back with a field goal, only to see Indianapolis score two more touchdowns in five minutes – the first came on a pass to Coby Fleener and the second on a wholly remarkable fumble recovery by Luck.

The reeling Chiefs needed offensive consistency, but only were met with injuries. The losses of Jamaal Charles, Donnie Avery and Knile Davis forced the team to lean on rookies and depth players to get them through the team’s most important game in three years. A 64-yard pass to T.Y. Hilton was the backbreaker, and the Chiefs couldn’t match it.

Indianapolis’ 28-point comeback is second only to the 1993 Buffalo Bills, who came back from 32 points against the Houston Oilers. Now there’s a new chapter in Luck’s NFL story in one of the most dramatic playoff wins in recent memory.

Saints Beat Eagles, Earn 1st Road Playoff Victory In Franchise History – SB Nation

The New Orleans Saints earned their first road playoff victory in franchise history on Saturday with a 26-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. They’ll advance to the divisional round of the playoffs, where they’ll take on the Seattle Seahawks in what might be the league’s toughest and most hostile environment.

While the Saints will surely be underdogs in Seattle, this is a big milestone for the New Orleans organization. Before Saturday, the Saints had lost all five of their previous playoff games on the road.

A couple of those losses were close – a 36-32 game against the San Francisco 49ers in the 2011 season, and a 41-36 loss to the aforementioned Seahawks in the 2010 season – but the rest were fairly one-sided games. New Orleans fell twice to the Chicago Bears, 39-14 in the 2006 and 16-6 in 1990, its first ever road playoff game. The Saints had a 36-16 loss in Minnesota in 2000.

This is significant today because this team has been notably better at home. This has been discussed for some time, with particular emphasis on quarterback Drew Brees and how he performs better in the conditions of a dome. New Orleans put up a 3-5 record on the road this season, while sporting a perfect 8-0 mark at the Superdome.

Brees struggled early in Saturday’s game, throwing two interceptions in the first half. Whether or not he would have thrown those picks at home isn’t really the point, though. What matters is that the Saints won this one, and now have the ultimate road test ahead of them in Seattle.

Ah, in Liberal Fairy Tale Land no one ever kills anyone with a knife, a club, or any other weapon. People ONLY die if a gun is involved

I have enjoyed Jason Whitlock, a sports writer, I have enjoyed a number of his columns. I have not always agreed with his take, but, his latest piece, written in response to Javon Belcher’s murder and suicide is a perfect example of how Liberals live in an alternate reality.

I would argue that your rationalizations speak to how numb we are in this society to gun violence and murder. We’ve come to accept our insanity. We’d prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that the second amendment somehow enhances our liberty rather than threatens it.

How many young people have to die senselessly? How many lives have to be ruined before we realize the right to bear arms doesn’t protect us from a government equipped with stealth bombers, predator drones, tanks and nuclear weapons?

Our current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.

In the coming days, Belcher’s actions will be analyzed through the lens of concussions and head injuries. Who knows? Maybe brain damage triggered his violent overreaction to a fight with his girlfriend. What I believe is, if he didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

See, ONLY guns are used to commit murder. Whitlock just KNOWS that if belcher had not had a gun, he would never have stabbed his girlfriend, or strangled her, or beat her to death with a tire iron because in Whitlock’s world, that NEVER happens. If not for guns, well  all violence would stop I suppose. Ah, but that fantasy is not the only one that exists in the mind of Whitlock

That is the message I wish Chiefs players, professional athletes and all of us would focus on Sunday and moving forward. Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.

But we won’t. We’ll watch Sunday’s game and comfort ourselves with the false belief we’re incapable of the wickedness that exploded inside Jovan Belcher Saturday morning.

See, handguns NEVER enhance our safety. Whitlock knows this because, well, he wants it to be that way. Of course, when I stepped into the alley behind the restaurant I ran in 1998, Jason Whitlock was not there to defend me from the thug hiding behind the fire escape. Neither was any other Liberal. But for that Colt .45 I had, I would have been a victim. Years before I was born, my grandmother answered a knock at her screen door. A man claiming to work for the phone company said he needed to check her phone. She told him no, and he proceeded to come through the door. And you know what, Jason Whitlock, was not there, but my grandfathers rifle was, and her pointing that rifle at the would be intruder seemed to have a stark impact on that intruders mindset. Just last week, in Grand Prairie, Texas, a few miles from where I live, a thug decided to break into a home there. Was Jason Whitlock and his moral outrage there to stop him. No, but, the homeowners 40 caliber handgun was, and it was the thug that was shot, not the homeowner.

So, perhaps Mr. Whitlock should do a bit of research into defensive gun uses. Of course, that would require a bit of thinking, rather than emoting, that might be too much for Whitlock.

 

 

Dear God why? Kansas City Linebacker Javon Belcher kills girlfriend, then himself

And leaves a two-month-old baby an orphan. Dear Lord, WHY?

Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend. Then he drove to Arrowhead Stadium thanked his coach for the opportunity to play and then shot himself dead in the parking lot.

Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then shot himself at Arrowhead Stadium.
ESPN New York reported:

A 25-year-old Kansas City Chiefs player shot his girlfriend early Saturday, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and turned the gun on himself as two team officials were confronting him, police said.

Kansas City police Supervisor Andrea Khan would not release the name of the player involved and the condition of the two parties was not immediately known.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp said authorities received a call Saturday morning from a woman who said her daughter had been shot multiple times at a residence about five miles away from the Arrowhead complex. Snapp said a call was then received from the Chiefs’ practice facility.

Upon arriving, Snapp said that police witnessed a black male in a car with a handgun to his head talking to two Chiefs officials. That’s when police heard a gunshot.

Arrowhead Stadium has been locked down since about 8 a.m.

“We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning,” the Chiefs said in a statement. “We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.”

The season has been a massive disappointment for the Chiefs, who were expected to contend for the AFC West title.
