STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Chiefs have lost six of last seven in series, including twice in playoffs. … Kansas City’s last win in series, 28-24 in 2011, is franchise’s only win in Indianapolis. … Chiefs are tied for second in NFL with 14 takeaways, have plus-7 turnover margin and have scored 41 points off takeaways. … Kansas City has six defensive TDs since 2015, No. 1 in NFL. … CB Marcus Peters has five interceptions this season and 13 during first two seasons in NFL. … Kansas City is tied with San Diego for fewest penalties (33). … Chiefs RB Spencer Ware averages 129.5 yards from scrimmage, No. 3 in NFL. He also averages 5.18 yards per carry, fifth in league. … QB Alex Smith has had passer rating of 100-plus three times this season and 29 times in career. He is 28-1 in those games. … Smith and Colts QB Andrew Luck were both No. 1 overall draft picks. … Luck orchestrated second-largest comeback in playoff history (28-point deficit) in last meeting and is on career-best pace with only four interceptions in seven games. … Colts have allowed league-high 25 sacks, with at least two in every game this season. … K Adam Vinatieri has made NFL-record 43 consecutive field goals. … WR T.Y. Hilton is ranked among AFC leaders in receptions (45) and yards receiving (689), a pace that would easily give him career highs in both. …. Hilton needs one 100-yard game to pass Marvin Harrison (21) for most 100-yard games in first five seasons of Colts career. … OLB Robert Mathis got first sack of season in Week 6 vs. Houston and scored first career touchdown in Week 7 to clinch win over Titans. … Two weeks ago, RB Frank Gore ended Colts’ 55-game streak without 100-yard rusher. On Sunday, he can become first Indy player to run for 100 yards at Lucas Oil Stadium in 28 games, dating to Week 15 in 2012. … Fantasy Tip: Colts TE Jack Doyle already has 29 catches for 282 yards and four TDs - all career highs. With starting TE Dwayne Allen (right ankle) still out, expect Luck to look frequently for Doyle against Chiefs’ susceptible pass defense.
