The Indianapolis Colts crushed the undefeated champions, Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The 20-17 loss against the Colts was a day of penalties and mistakes. They scored the sixth lowest point against the Colts. Chiefs’ defensive effort held Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense to two touchdowns and one field goal. But what was a heartbreaking defeat for some fans, turned into a mock fest for the famed NFL analyst, Skip Bayless.
