Kansas City Sports Title History Part 2

August 7, 2016

The other major sports league title won by a Kansas City team was by notched by the football Chiefs in the 1969 season.

It was the last AFL season the only AFL season with a wild card presence and K.C. “rode it” (is there still someone riding a horse at their home games?) all the way.

They finished second in the AFL West behind the Oakland Raiders but made the playoffs and defeated the defending champion New York Jets on Saturday December 20, 1969 a day before the regular NFL season ended.

Next they were victorious in Oakland vs the Raiders in the last AFL title tilt.

Kansas City with Len Dawson throwing a touchdown pass to the great receiver Otis Taylor and Jan Stenerud booting 3 field goals beat the 11 point favorite Minnesota Vikings to win it all in Supe 4.
