(KANSAS CITY, Mo.)— The Kansas City Chiefs have won just one playoff game since winning the 1993 AFC Divisional round game against the Houston Oilers. 

"Listen, I know how passionate the fans are and I know how passionate our players, coaches, the building is, so I know it's important to a lot of folks," Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said.

Since Reid arrived in Kansas City in 2013, the Chiefs have made the playoffs in five of the six seasons, but have only won one playoff game—2015 AFC Wild Card game against Houston, 30-0. 

Kansas City will play the Colts Saturday afternoon in AFC Divisional Round and historically, the Chiefs have not played well against Indianapolis—going 0-4 in the playoffs including an ugly 45-44 loss in the 2013 AFC Wild Card round. 

"They're (Colts) a good football team and like I said before, every year is different in this league, every team is different," Reid said. "You don't spend a lot of time with that, you get ready for the game and go through the process of getting ready for it."

Chiefs take on the Colts at 3:35 Saturday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Divisional Round.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
