Chiefs Magic Number – Indianapolis

Our man Enrique has broken down all the numbers for Sunday’s game between the Chiefs and Colts. He’s boiled them all down to one magic number. See if you agree.

His record with the magic number: 9-0

Shortcomings. That’s the only word needed to describe the Chiefs’ offensive showings (no pun intended) in Indianapolis when facing the Colts. And if they aspire for a coming-of-age moment, then they will have to get over the teens – literally.

The 0-4 all-time record that the Chiefs have registered in the state of Indiana is not a product of efficiency. Instead, it’s a byproduct of insufficiency – again, of the scoring kind. Given the recollections of past confrontations, one can see that in the four games that the Arrowhead Ones were hosted by the Horseshoed Ones, they just haven’t been able to put enough points in the scoreboard. Tallies of 19 (in 1990), 17 (1999), 8 (January of ’07) and 10 (November of ’07) points have worked to keep those encounters somewhat competitive, but not to give them any kind of final ending. And along the way, rather valiant performances by the defense (7 sacks in ’90, no 300-yard passing games by Peyton Manning) have all gone for naught.

Taking into account that the Chiefs’ best chances to get a triumph in the Colts’ backyard were derailed when they failed to achieve the 20-point plateau, I will say that reaching that barrier will be enough to make history. So, in conclusion, the Chiefs’ Magic Number to escape with a victory is 20, which would be the minimum amount of points scored by the Chiefs this Sunday. If they hit that mark, they will win their first game in Indianapolis.
