The countdown clock for Reggie Wayne’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame is ticking. Wayne intends to announce his retirement, according to Mike Chappell of CBS 4 in Indianapolis. That ends a 14-year NFL career spent entirely with the Indianapolis Colts.
The 36-year-old spent two weeks in training camp with the New England Patriots — a jarring sight for fans of both the Colts and Patriots — but he and the team agreed to leave him off the 53-man roster.
With his retirement, Wayne steps down from his position as the active career leader in both receptions (1,070) and yards (14,345). Fellow Hurricane Andre Johnson inherits the lead in both categories.
It was a great first half for Brady and the Patriots. Brady threw for over 150 yards and a touchdown with no picks and was not sacked in the opening half, and he also ran for 10 yards and a touchdown. Brady’s first touchdown was an 8-yard strike to Rob Gronkowski early in the first quarter.

The play above was ruled not a touchdown upon review, despite many thinking Brady was in. On the very next play, Brady carried a QB sneak and scored from one yard out.

Kansas City did finally find the end zone when Smith hit Albert Wilson for a 10-yard touchdown pass to make it a one-score game. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, their defense simply could not reliably stop Brady and the Patriots, and within five minutes they put up six more points with two field goals from Stephen Gostkowski.
New England was able to kill plenty of clock and the Chiefs’ lack of offensive spark prevented them from mounting any kind of comeback late in the fourth. The Chiefs did have a good drive at the end, but they took too long to get to the line of scrimmage and even went back to the huddle multiple times. They found the end zone again but they had killed so much of the clock that the Patriots easily took the win.
The Patriots advance to the AFC Championship, where they will face either the Denver Broncos or the Pittsburgh Steelers, who play each other on Sunday afternoon.
