About The Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs were founded in 1960, but were known as the Dallas Texans. The Dallas Texans moved to Kansas City in 1963.
The Kansas City Chiefs soon became known as the leaders of the American Football League with the most playoff appearances; 6 which is tied with Oakland, and the most AFL championships; 3 which is the most Super Bowl appearances in the AFL.
Led by head coach Hank Stram, the Chiefs played in the first Super Bowl against Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers which they lost 37 to 10, and the Last Super Bowl (IV) before the merger of the AFL and the NFL against the Minnesota Vikings which they won 23 to 7.
The Chiefs joined the NFL in 1970 and in ’71 they won the AFC West title but in double overtime, they lost to the Miami Dolphins 27 to 4. Sadly, this would be the last time in fifteen straight years that the Chiefs would see another playoff game.
Between the years of 1974 and 1986, the Chiefs only had two winning seasons; one in 1981 where they finished the season with nine wins and seven losses, but did not see any postseason games. The other was in 1986 when they finished the season with ten wins and six losses. They went to the Wild Card Game, but lost to the New York Jets. 1986 would be the first time in fifteen years they were in the playoffs.
In 1989, Marty Schottenheimer was hired in as head coach. As head coach he had six straight playoff appearances, three AFC West championships, nine winning seasons, and seventy-six consecutive sold out seasons at Arrowhead Stadium.
Since 1992, no NFL team has won more games at home than the Kansas City Chiefs with twenty-seven wins and five losses which is an average better than eighty percent.
In 1993, Joe Montana was traded from the 49ers to the Chiefs along with Marcus Allan from the Los Angeles Raiders. That year they would make it to the AFC Championship Game. Joe ended up retiring after the 1994 season.
Replacing Joe would be Steve Bono and Rich Gannon as back-up. Steve led the Chiefs to another winning season with thirteen wins and three losses. They were picked as sure winners of the super bowl.
However, a cold night filled the playoff with dropped passes and missed field goals, and they were defeated by the Indianapolis Colts 10 to 7.
Two years later they made it to the playoffs again, but again they lost, this time to the Denver Broncos 10 to 14. It wouldn’t be until 2003 before they earned another postseason game in which they lost again to the Indianapolis Colts. The next two years they would finish no better than 2nd place.
