Andrew Luck: Led the Colts to a remarkable victory

Andrew Luck threw for 443 yards and four touchdowns as the Indianapolis Colts rallied from 28 points down to seal a 45-44 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the first match of the NFL play-offs.

The Chiefs lost running back Jamaal Charles, their key offensive figure, early on but it did not appear to be affecting them as Alex Smith threw four touchdown passes and Knile Davis ran for a score to help them to a 38-10 lead early in the third quarter of the wild card game.

From there though it was all about Luck, who overcame three interceptions to throw all four of his TD passes in the second half - including the game-winning 64-yard throw to TY Hilton late on - as the Colts pulled off the second biggest comeback in play-off history.

The Colts will go on to face either the Denver Broncos or the New England Patriots.

Shayne Graham's field goal on the final play of the game gave the New Orleans Saints a 26-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

It was Graham's third field goal of the game for the the Saints, for whom Drew Brees had one touchdown pass and Mark Ingram rushed for a score.

They will next face the Seattle Seahawks.
