Kansas City, Last year

August 10, 2016

Last year, just before the Kansas City Royals were completing their run to a World Series crown (pun intended Royals’ Crown), the NFL Kansas City Chiefs were beginning a nice run of their own.

Of course the football Chiefs did not get anywhere near as far, but a 10 game regular season win skein in football  especially, is nothing to sneeze at and in fact is truly remarkable.

K.C. was (1-5) when with the Royals crowned American League champions a day and a half earlier, when they began the winning streak vs the Pittsburgh Steelers (each team would win its wild card round game on the same day, perhaps the only time in the 26 year history of two wild card games in each conference, that two teams from the same conference would notch wild card game wins on the same day. Of course the schedule really never allowed such a possibility until last year?!) on October 25, 2015.

The next week on November 1st, a truly disgraceful late date for a World Series game to be played, the Royals completed their title season winning at New York vs the Mets in game 5.

That day the Chiefs were in London, England, easing to victory in a “morning time in the U.S. game,” the second of what would be 10 straight regular season victories, 11 counting a wild card game win vs the Houston Texans before losing in the “slots” (divisional round) in an Ian Eagle game at New England vs the Patriots.
