The Indianapolis Colts overcame a 28-point deficit in the second-half on Saturday to defeat the Kansas City chiefs 45-44.

The Cheifs' offense appeared unstoppable in the first half, taking a 38-10 lead into halftime.

However, Andrew Luck and the Colts bounced back and had a big third quarter to win the first wild card game of the season.

He threw three of his four touchdowns in the second half, scored on a fumble return and connected with a wide-open T.Y. Hilton on a 64-yard TD pass to give the Colts an improbable 45-44 wild-card victory Saturday.

"One for the ages," said Pagano, Indianapolis' coach. "I think somebody said that it was the second-largest comeback or whatever in the history of whatever. I guess 21 wasn't large enough at half, so we thought we'd give them another seven, you know, just to make it interesting."

The Chiefs (11-5) still had a big season after only winning two games all of last season.

The New Orleans Saints took care of business Saturday night, defeating the NFC-East leading Philadelphia Eagles 26-24.

The Saints defeated the Eagles with a last-second field goal.

Nick Foles, of the University of Arizona, came off a big season, having the league's best passer rating, which also topped Peyton Manning.
