VIDEO: Re-live the Kansas City Chiefs last playoff win 21 years ago

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs playoff winless streak is 21 years old right now, old enough to drink. It will turn 22 years old on January 16 of this year -- if the Chiefs don't win this weekend in the AFC Wild Card game against the Houston Texans.

It's fitting that the Chiefs are playing a Houston-based team because it was a Houston team they beat back on January 16, 1994 for their last playoff win. It was the Houston Oilers back then and the Chiefs, who were 7-point underdogs in the game, won the game for the right to go the AFC Championship game. The loss the following week to the Bills kicked off the 20-plus year playoff winless streak.

A few things from these highlights :

  • A Houston player saying this about Joe Montana: "Knockout, baby. He won't last the first quarter."
  • Keith Cash throwing the ball at the Buddy Ryan poster. Still the best thing ever.
  • The Chiefs defense had nine sacks and three turnovers.
  • Tim Grunhard in the locker room after the game: "Don't doubt us anymore. Now get out of here!"
Time to end the streak.
