The Colts have looked half dead for about 90% of this game, and yet it could easily be 24-21 (Colts had goal to go at the end of the first half).
If the Patriots can protect TB12 just a bit, they could win in this stadium if they advance. Chiefs have played well but they haven't exactly stepped on Indy's throat considering how shitty they have looked.

That’s the remarkable part.

But even so, it’s still felt over for a long time.

Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)

Thought for sure he got a tip on that punt.
NE is going to get 0 calls if they make it to KC.

It didn't seem like the colts were arguing they touched it? It looked like he touched the ball.

Wasn’t a foul. Don’t get suckered in by the announcers, the ball touched the defender very close to when contact was made

Early contact on DPI isn’t absolute. If it’s close (bang-bang) it’s nothing.
What about the holding after the KC defender was already on the ground?

They were trying to drill it off of #49 and it almost worked, it glanced off of him as it was.
Hard to believe that's got a better chance of success than a typical onside kick but I agree that seemed to be the plan.

I guess if it doesn't work the field position loss isn't quite as bad as a normal onside kick.

Onsides are only working around 8% this season under the new rules so I think just about anything has a better chance of working.
