KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A look at some of the highlights and lowlights of the Kansas City Chiefs' season:

Best Game: After winning just two games a year ago, the Chiefs rolled into Philadelphia in Week 3 having already matched that total. It was the return of coach Andy Reid to the city where he spent the past 14 years, and Kansas City made it a memorable trip with a 26-16 victory.

Worst Game: Is there any other choice? The Chiefs raced to a 31-10 halftime lead Saturday and were poised to win their first playoff game since 1993, only to collapse in spectacular fashion. Andrew Luck led the Colts on a furious second-half rally, and he finished it off with a 64-yard pass to T.Y. Hilton in the closing minutes to seal a 45-44 defeat.

Best Play: Any of those involving Jamaal Charles in a 56-31 victory over Oakland. The All-Pro running back scored five touchdowns, four through the air, and had 215 yards total offense.

Worst Play: Any play involving the defense in the second half in Indianapolis. The Colts scored five touchdowns against a Chiefs defense that gave up 536 yards in the game.
