Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck led his team to an epic comeback playoff victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, a 45-44 triumph at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Luck led the Colts back from a 28-point deficit, throwing three of his four touchdowns in the second half.
Luck's 64-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton won the game.
The Colts' 28-point comeback in Saturday's wild-card game against the Chiefs was the second-largest in NFL playoff history, trailing only Bills-Oilers in 1992.
"One for the ages," Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "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've give them another seven, you know, just to make it interesting."
Luck completed 29 of 45 passes for 443 yards and three interceptions.
Hilton broke franchise playoff records with 13 catches and 224 yards, and also caught two touchdowns.
"I don't know if it ever crossed my mind on how it would be remembered," Luck said. "When I took a knee, and you feel the buzz and the energy of the crowd and see your teammates' faces, that makes it special."
