Wide Left Derby

January 7, 1996
Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City
AFC Divisional Playoff Game
Indianapolis (10) over Kansas City (7)

After this game in frigid temperatures, the kickers described the ball as rock hard as they tried to explain a total of 5 missed field goals. The most costly miss came on a try from 32 yards by the Chiefs' Lin Elliott with 42 seconds remaining. A successful field goal would have put the game into overtime. Instead, the Cinderella Colts took the upset victory. The margin was provided by a 30 yard field goal in the third quarter by Cary Blanchard. The Colts also benefitted from 3 interceptions of Chiefs' quarterback Steve Bono.
