Indianapolis, IN, United States (4E Sports) – Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes, all in the second-half, and scored on a fumble recovery to push the Indianapolis Colts to a 45-44 comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts quarterback finished 29 of 45 for 443 yards and three interceptions in the wild-card game.

The Chiefs took a 38-10 lead early in the third quarter, but all they could muster after that were two field goals.

The victory sends the Colts (12-5) to either Denver or New England next weekend for the divisional round.

Alex Smith was 30 of 46 for 378 yards with four TDs and no interceptions on a day he lost his top two running backs, Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis, and starting receiver Donnie Avery to injuries.

Charles suffered a concussion on opening drive. He got hit hard and stayed down on the field, face first, for a few moments.

Avery left in the third quarter also with a concusssion, though it’s unclear when the injury occurred.

Davis injured his left knee after he was hit in the fourth quarter.

The Chiefs (11-6) finished its turnaround season with three straight losses.
