Thomas Jones Once Helped Cardinals Beat Chiefs

Thomas Jones, the Cardinal.

The Kansas City Chiefs will play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday and if history holds up then KC has a 70 percent chance of winning the game. The Chiefs have won seven of 10 total regular season games against the Cardinals and tied in one of those games. A 7-2-1 record isn't too shabby.

Tie: The Chiefs tied the Cardinals in their first ever meeting on Nov. 22, 1970.

First loss: The Cardinals beat the Chiefs on Nov. 23, 1986. Remember Bill Kenney and Stephone Paige? They connected for the Chiefs only two TDs in that game. Deron Cherry had a pick, too. The final score was 23-14 in favor of the Cardinals.

Second loss: The Cardinals also beat the Chiefs on Oct. 21, 2001. Guess who scored in that game? Thomas Jones. Yes, the same Thomas Jones. He had seven carries for 26 yards and a touchdown in that game. The Cardinals won, 24-16. The Cardinals spent a first round pick on Jones in 2000.

I've got the full history of the Chiefs and Cardinals regular season series after the jump.
