Chiefs vs. Colts halftime score: Kansas City outplays Indy but still trails

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Chiefs can't turn their yardage into points and they pay for it by trailing the Colts at the half.

The Kansas City Chiefs have turned their game against the Indianapolis Colts into an ugly one, but they still trail the Colts 13-3 heading into halftime even though they outplayed them until a late drive by the Colts.

The Chiefs have gained 245 total yards compared to the Colts' 155 in the first half but have only been able to produce three points. The Colts' offense has produced only six but their defense came through with a touchdown of their own on a Darius Butler 32-yard interception return early in the first quarter.

Other than that interception, Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn (136 yards) has played pretty even with Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck (123 yards). Quinn has been aided by a dominant running game as Jamaal Charles (10 rushes for 48 yards) and Peyton Hillis (six rushes for 48 yards) have led the way.

The Colts picked up a late field goal to give them a 10-point lead going into the half.

The Chiefs are looking to play spoiler as the Colts fight for playoff positioning. The Chiefs are 2-12 this season and the Colts are 9-5.
