Next week's other AFC playoff tilt will pit fourth-seeded AFC West-winning Kansas City Chiefs against the visiting Baltimore Ravens.

A see-saw battle that saw the Titans (6-10) come back four times to tie the Colts swung in the end on a fumbled snap by Tennessee quarterback Kerry Collins that was recovered by the Colts on their own 37-yard line.

Quarterback Peyton Manning moved the Colts down field and into position for the game-winning field goal.

The string of success by Indianapolis matched the feat of the Dallas Cowboys, who reached the NFL playoffs each year from 1975 to 1983.
