(NEW YORK) — Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is hoping last year’s playoff experience carries over into this Saturday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Colts fell to the Baltimore Ravens last season in Luck’s first playoff game, but this time they will be at home.
“It’s fun to be in the playoffs,” Luck said. “I feel fortunate to be a part of a team that’s done it these past two years, excited to play a darn good football team in the Chiefs.”
The Colts beat the Chiefs 23-7 two weeks ago at Arrowhead Stadium and Kansas City has failed to win a postseason game in 20 years.
“Going out to try and win is enough motivation,” Luck said. “I honestly haven’t thought too much about last year except for maybe some things to remember.”
Luck set the NFL record for most passing yards (8,196) through two seasons to start an NFL career.
“Just having that experience is always helpful,” the second-year quarterback said. “I feel more comfortable as a football player in this league because of that experience.”
