If you ask Kansas City Chiefs fans who their least favorite team is, 90 percent of them will blurt out “Raiders!” mid-question. Another division rival, the Denver Broncos, are usually next in line.

However, if any other club is gaining steam, it’s the Indianapolis Colts.

Let’s put this into context: Since relocating to Indianapolis in 1984, the Colts have won nine of their 12 regular-season contests versus the Chiefs. Pouring salt in the wound, Kansas City is also 0-4 versus Indianapolis in the playoffs.

The “second fiddle” trend isn’t a new one, either.

Last year, Andy Reid and Co. polished off the second-biggest one-season turnaround in NFL history. Or rather, they matched it, because the Colts penned a nine-win improvement just two years prior.

In 2004 (2003 season), the clubs headlined the league’s first punt-less playoff game. Priest Holmes, who averaged just one fumble per 111.3 carries throughout his career, coughed the ball up at the end of a 48-yard run, and the Colts eked out a seven-point win.

I’m not a big believer in fate, but this is the work of destiny.

All of that said, the disgust for Denver is rooted far more deeply, and the face of its franchise, Peyton Manning, also quarterbacked two of the Colts teams that knocked Kansas City out of the playoffs.

So, since there’s no “I hope they both lose and all the bad things in life happen to them and nobody else but them” option, which team would you rather see advance?
