You knew this was coming.
Remember when the Indianapolis Colts raised a “1-0” flag (and sold 1-0 T-shirts) this week to celebrate their AFC Wild Card Game win over the Houston Texans? Seemed a little much for a first-round playoff win, right?
Well, the Colts didn’t fare so well in the second round, falling 31-13 to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round on Sunday in a season-ending defeat.
Which means — you guessed it — it’s time to update that flag.
I’m old enough to remember when the @Colts were 1-0 in the playoffs.

And can we take care of the shirts while we’re at it?
Colts 1-0 shirts going to be such a cute vintage item

The Chiefs even got in on the act, too.
We should mention the Colts used the “1-0” mantra during the regular season as a reminder to take things one game at a time. But that’s still an awful cliché, and considering this is the same team that raised an “AFC Finalist” banner after losing to the New England Patriots by 38 points, they deserve to take some heat.
Unfortunately for the Patriots, Indy’s loss didn’t do New England any favors, as the winner of Sunday’s Patriots-Chargers Divisional Round clash will have to travel to Arrowhead Stadium for the AFC Championship Game.
