It's hard to imagine a much more dramatic weekend of NFL playoff games.
There was the big comeback by the Indianapolis Colts, who had fallen 28 points behind the Kansas City Chiefs.
Indy bounced back to win a 45-44 thriller.
The game included arguably the most amazing play of the weekend: Colts quarterback Andrew Luck's touchdown late in the fourth quarter when he picked up a ball that had bounced off a teammate's shoulder. Luck dove toward the end zone and managed to just stretch across the goal line.
