Indy had 2 games against Houston, 2 games against Jacksonville, and 2 games against Tennessee. Sure the NFC west is pretty tough, but their own division is terrible and should give them 6 wins right there.
KC had a game each against those teams since those divisions played each other. So, they had 7 games in common (one against each other, 1 each against the 3 teams in each of their divisions)
The remaining 9 games:
KC: Denver, San Diego, Oakland, Philly, NYG, Dallas, Washington, Buffalo, Cleveland (combined record 54-90)
Indy: Houston, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Seattle, SF, Arizona, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Miami (combined record 65-79)
Yeah, the very bottom of Indy's schedule is awful which drags the overall record down, but there's no comparison at the top - and Indy has actually defeated some of those top tier opponents.
