INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts' improbable 45-44 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday was full of milestones and records. Here's a list which speaks to the incredible nature of the game:* The Colts' comeback from 28 points behind was the second-largest in NFL playoff history to the Buffalo Bills' comeback from 32 points behind against the Houston Oilers in 1993.

* The Colts and Chiefs combined for an NFL playoff record 1,049 yards.

* The Colts became the first team in NFL history to win a playoff game when allowing 40 or more points and committing four turnovers.

* The 89 combined points were the third-highest in playoff history. The record was 96 by the Packers and Cardinals in 2009.

* The Colts' 45 points are the second-most in a playoff game in franchise history, and the 44 points allowed are the most ever allowed by the Colts in a playoff game.

* The Colts' 536 total net yards was a franchise playoff record and ninth-highest in NFL history.

* Andrew Luck's 443 yards passing is the fifth-highest in NFL playoff history and second in Colts history to Peyton Manning's 458 against Denver in 2005.

* T.Y. Hilton's 13 catches and 224 yards receiving were the most in Colts playoff history. The receptions were the second-most in NFL playoff history and the yards were the third-most.

* Donald Brown became the first Colts player to score on a run and a touchdown reception in a playoff game in the Super Bowl era.

* Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri became the first player in NFL history to score more than 200 playoff points in a career.

* Kansas City's Alex Smith became the first quarterback in playoff history to throw four touchdown passes and no interceptions and lose the game.

* In the most obscure record of the day, Luck became the first player to ever throw a touchdown pass and score on a fumble recovery in a playoff game.
