Vinatieri kicked field goals of 46 and 45 yards in the second quarter and Brown took a screen pass 33 yards up the right sideline as the Colts took a 13-7 halftime lead.

After pressure from Robert Mathis forced Smith to float an interception on the opening series of the second half, Brown sprinted up the sideline again for a 51-yard touchdown run. Kansas City’s five second-half drives ended with two punts, two interceptions and a fumble, as the Chiefs went minus-four in turnovers after entering the game with a plus-21 margin.
