Of course, that game is known to many Chiefs fans for the Brandon Flowers pass interference call, which rankled many folks rooting for the red and yellow. Ultimately, Kansas City lost 35-31 but won the AFC West that season with a 10-6 mark.
Ironically, the Texans are one of two teams never to have lost in Arrowhead Stadium. It will be up to first-time NFL starting quarterback Case Keenum to keep that streak alive. Houston has only played once in Arrowhead, triumphing 24-21 in 2004 in the same game that Priest Holmes became the franchise's all-time leading rusher.
Houston head coach Gary Kubiak was kind of involved against the Chiefs as a player, mostly holding a clipboard for John Elway from 1983-91 as a backup quarterback of the Denver Broncos. In Andy Reid's career against Houston, he is 3-0 all-time.
Few notable players have played for both teams, but the names include currents such as Wade Smith and Dunta Robinson, along with right tackle Eric Winston.
