Today it’s week three of our look back at the 2010 season, as the Chiefs fall for the first time in the season to the Colts on the road.

We learned more about the Chiefs than we did the Colts: Hold your head up high Chiefs fans, you held Peyton out of the end zone for a complete contest for the first time in 14 games (last season, week 8 vs. 49ers).

The Chiefs offense needed a big play: In a game that produced no big plays, the Chiefs couldn’t come up with one, just one; it could have made all the difference in a defensive affair.

It started with a shocking onside kick.  It ended with an even bigger shocker, a defensive battle.  In what was a surprising offensive struggle for both teams, the Colts handed the Chiefs their first defeat of the season, taking down the NFL’s last unbeaten 19-9.  It is the first time since 1970 that the NFL will not see a 4-0 team. An often-criticized Colts defense made sure of that.

On this day, it was the “other side of the ball” for Jim Caldwell’s crew that got the job done.  Notorious for surrendering mass amounts of real estate on the ground, the Colts held the Chiefs to just 113 yards on 27 attempts.
