Kansas City Chiefs: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The Kansas City Chiefs originated a few miles to the south in the state of Texas, where they joined the AFC in 1960 as the Dallas Texans. The franchise played in the AFL for three seasons before relocating to Missouri for the 1962 AFL season and renaming themselves. The unit won the AFL Championship in their last season at Dallas. 

They repeated the feat twice (1966, 1969) in the AFL era at Kansas. On the second occasion, they clinched the Super Bowl by beating Minnesota Vikings. Currently, the Kansas City Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl Champions. 

They ply their trade in the AFC West alongside Denver Broncos, Los Angeles Chargers, and Las Vegas Raiders. Under Andy Reid, the Kansas City Chiefs are aiming to become the first team to defend a Super Bowl since the New England Patriots’ successful effort in 2005. 

Despite moving, the Chiefs have retained their jersey colors and still play football in red and white.

Kansas City Chiefs Logo 

The Kansas City Chiefs first logo featured a cowboy with a gun in his right hand and a football in his left. The background was the state of Texas.

When the franchise moved north to Kansas City, the man was replaced by an individual in yellow headgear, and a tomahawk replaced the gun. 

The logo remained till the 1972 season before the franchise shook things up. They introduced an arrowhead logo in keeping with their stadium, the Arrowhead Stadium. The logo had a black border and featured the letters ‘KC’ in red with a white background. 

Lamar Hunt’s design which was sketched on a napkin has remained on the jersey for nearly half a century and is synonymous with the franchise. 

Kansas City Chiefs Owner

Lamar Hunt found the Kansas City Chiefs and served as the owner until his death in 2006. This is the man who first used the term “Super Bowl” for the AFC vs NFC season-ending clash. His wife Norma Hunt has attended every Super Bowl game and was present on the sidelines for both of the Kansas City Chiefs’ triumphs.

The team’s operations are handled by her son Clark Hunt, who oversaw the end of an unfortunate streak. In 2016, the Kansas City Chiefs blanked Houston Texans 30-0 to advance to the 2015 Divisional playoffs. The win ended the team’s almost 22-year wait for a playoff win. 

The eight-game losing streak from their triumph against Houston Oilers on January 16, 1994, right until their glorious win at the NRG Field on January 9, 2016. 

While the team didn’t build on this and lost their next game, it showed that the Hunt family had the right vision and built for the future. 

Kansas City Chiefs Achievements

The Kansas City Chiefs have won two Super Bowl titles. The first came in the fourth NFL season in with quarterback Len Dawson claiming the MVP trophy. 

After 50 years and almost a generation later, the Chiefs made it to the Super Bowl. Here it appeared they would fall at the final hurdle. However, star quarterback Patrick Mahomes had other ideas and dominated the San Francisco 49ers to snatch the unlikeliest of victories from the jaws of defeat. 

Besides this, the franchise has won 12 Divisional Titles and four Conference Championships and reached the Playoffs 22 times. 

The Patrick Mahomes era

The Kansas City Chiefs are set to be a force to reckon with for many seasons. They are on their way to becoming a dynasty which in retrospect kicked off in 2017. This was when the franchise elected to make Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes their top draft pick at tenth over at the 2017 NFL draft. 

After a year on the sidelines, behind Alex Smith, Mahomes claimed the starter’s role. He threw the combination of 5,000 passing yards and 50 touchdown passes en route to the NFL MVP in 2018. 

They fell in the conference championship game to the eventual Super Bowl winners, New England Patriots. 

A year later, Mahomes lived up to lofty expectations. Though he couldn’t secure back-to-back MVP awards, he showed the league that they could count out the Chiefs at their own risk. 

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback orchestrated a series of comebacks in the post-season to help get the Vincent Lombardi Trophy back to Missouri after half a century. 

He claimed the Super Bowl MVP for his efforts and was rewarded with a bumper contract. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback is set to lead ‘The Legion of Zoom’ for a considerable amount of time.
