Chiefs vs. Colts: Open thread

Scott Boehm

Join the CSR crew for the first game of the playoffs.

The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Lucas Oil Stadium to face the Indianapolis Colts in the first playoff game of the 2013 season.

Everything is on the line for two teams that met earlier this year and resulted in a Colts win. Past means nothing in the playoffs, and a healthy Kansas City defense will test Andrew Luck's resolve and ensure he doesn't have a clear pocket for much of the afternoon.

Can Luck prevail? Will the Colts be able to stop Jamaal Charles? More importantly to Panthers fans, can Alex Smith continue his jabbing at Cam Newton for being a "winner" not a stat-stuffer?

We have a poll that will be open until kickoff -- so lodge your votes, watch along and see if one of these teams could eventually be in the Super Bowl in February.

THIS IS NOW AN OPEN THREAD
