Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - What a difference a year makes.

This time last season, the Indianapolis Colts were on their way to a 2-14 campaign. The team parted ways with Peyton Manning in the offseason, then selected Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

By going with Luck, the Colts have made it back to the playoffs.

Luck's 7-yard TD pass to Reggie Wayne with 4:08 remaining lifted Indianapolis over the Kansas City Chiefs, 20-13, and the Colts locked up a playoff spot.

Luck completed 17-of-35 passes for 205 yards for the Colts (10-5), who have won four of five and hold the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs. The Stanford product broke Cam Newton's single-season rookie passing record late in the second quarter with 23-yard pass to fellow rookie T.Y. Hilton. Luck has thrown for 4,183 yards this season.

Wayne caught five passes for 81 yards for Indianapolis, which plays the Texans next week to end the regular season.
