Every January in recent years The Kansas City Chiefs Football team has gone to the playoffs. This tear is no exception
Many Chiefs fans have learned to live with heartbreak. Since 1970, the team has made the playoffs a total of 18 times, each time falling short of the finale. Then three years ago it all changed. The Chiefs won their first championship in 50 years and returned the next year but lost to Tampa Bay. This year, will be a challenge to make it to the big game, but don’t count them out.
Founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans the team moved to Kansas City in 1963. While most people associate the name “Chiefs” to Native Americans, the name actually came from former Kansas City Mayor Harold Bartle who had that nickname. The runner up was “Royals” which would eventually become the name of the city’s baseball team.
