Kansas City has an opportunity to exorcise some demons against the Indianapolis Colts, who have beaten the Chiefs in four straight playoff contests.

The Chiefs are looking for their first home playoff win since January 8, 1994 season, when quarterback Joe Montana led the team to a 27-24 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Colts beat the Chiefs in the playoffs following the 1995, 2003, 2006 and 2013 seasons.

Kansas City led the NFL in total total average offense during the regular season with 425.6 yards per game, and total points, with 565. Indianapolis was red hot entering the playoffs, with the league's No. 5 offense, with 386.2 yards per game and 433 total points.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes led the NFL with 50 touchdowns and finished second behind Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger with 5,097 yards passing.

Kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium Saturday is at 3:35 p.m.
