Chiefs vs. Colts – Exorcising Playoff Demons (video)

The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t won a home playoff game since 1994 when Joe Montana led a late touchdown drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Since January 11th, 1970 the Chiefs have had 4 playoff wins while the Colts have 4 playoff wins against the Chiefs alone! Chiefs fans are nervous having to face this Colts team for a now 5th time in the playoffs and rightfully so. The Chiefs only have 2 home playoff wins in their history and if they lose yet another one, therapists in the Kansas City metro area are going to be busy come Monday. However, the Chiefs have the MVP of the league in Patrick Mahomes so this isn’t the same Chiefs with the likes of Steve Bono, Elvis Grbac, Trent Green, Matt Cassel, or even Alex Smith. For the first time, in a long time, the Kansas City Chiefs can say they have their very own franchise quarterback and not an attempt to turn someone else’s trash into their treasure.

Joe showed the world that he didn’t leave the “Montana Magic” in San Francisco and he had plenty left to give to the Kansas City Chiefs. Joe Montana went under center with 0:13 left in the game and found Willie Davis in the corner of the end zone to win 31-28 and end his and Marty Schotteneheimer’s winless streak at Mile High Stadium.  Continue reading “Chiefs Rewind: MNF at Denver Oct. 17, 1994 (140 Photos)”
