The Kansas City Chiefs are leading the Indianapolis Colts, 24-7, at halftime as the two teams clash in the Divisional Round of the postseason on Saturday afternoon.
Kansas City tallied points on each of their first three offensive drives, building a quick 17-point lead. Tailback Damien Williams was responsible for the Chiefs’ first score, maneuvering his way through defenders on an 11-yard touchdown scamper before wide receiver Tyreek Hill dashed 36 yards for a score on Kansas City’s next possession.
Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 18-of-27 passes for 195 yards in the half, finding tight end Travis Kelce a team-leading six times for 93 yards. Mahomes was also productive with his legs, scrambling for a 4-yard touchdown in the closing minutes of the half.
Kansas City’s defense, meanwhile, turned in one of its best first-half performances of the season through the initial 30 minutes of play. The Chiefs held Indianapolis to just 91 total yards of offense and four first downs in the half.
The Colts’ only points came on a blocked punt midway through the second quarter when wide receiver Zach Pascal fell on the loose ball in the end zone.
