What caught my eye during the Colts' 23-7 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium:


Injuries forced position coach Joe Gilbert to start a fifth different offensive line group in the past five games. Did anyone notice that Xavier Nixon was at left guard, Samson Satele at center and Mike McGlynn at right guard? The running game was erratic, but offered occasional bursts from RB Donald Brown. His 51-yard touchdown run in the third quarter was a thing of beauty, and a testament to his tight-rope walking abilities. RB Trent Richardson finished with just 43 yards on 16 carries, but picked up a key fourth-and-1 in the second quarter with a strong 6-yard gain. It led to Adam Vinatieri's 45-yard field goal.


Overall, QB Andrew Luck couldn't complain about his protection. The Chiefs ranked No. 7 in sacks per pass play, and had just one. Luck capitalized by completing 26-of-37 passes for 241 yards and one touchdown.


Upward mobility remains in play. The win keeps alive the Colts' hope for a No. 2 seed, if they close the season with a win at home against Jacksonville and Baltimore closes with wins over New England and Cincinnati. The Ravens and Patriots meet later in the day. The victory also increased the possibilities of the Colts moving from their No. 4 spot to No. 3, which would mean avoiding the AFC West runner-up in the first round of the postseason.
