Ok, I see how my post above is slightly inaccurate:
Chiefs were #5 as of two weeks ago regardless of what happened (i.e. Denver clinched HFA, and KC had way more wins than any other wildcard team could have). The Colts on the other hand were battling for a possible #3 seed, but Cincinnati held strong and locked it down.
So makes sense that the Chiefs would lay down knowing there was a very good chance for a rematch in the wildcard round, and they got it.
They lost twice to Denver. They would have to be 1 game up on Denver to win the division. There was a long shot chance that Denver would lose to either the Texans or the Raider the following week. So you would go all out to beat the Colts for that long shot. And show your hands in the process, when you know you would have to play these same Colts in the playoff in the wild card rounds...
That's just dumb.
