Best Chiefs Team Ever: 1969 Super Bowl Team

New, 1 comment

ESPN has come out with the Chiefs best team ever. Some of you (us) younger folks might say the 1995 team -- even with no playoff win -- merits at least some consideration. But, considering the grand scheme of things, ESPN probably got it right: The 1969 Super Bowl team.

Most impressive win: The 23-7 win over Minnesota in Super Bowl IV. The Chiefs dominated the Vikings, who were a 13-point favorite.

Send them home unpacking: The Oakland Raiders’ players were so sure they’d dispatch the Chiefs in the AFL Championship Game that they packed their bags to head to the Super Bowl after the game.

Some still say the 1971 team was the best but I'll have to take the word of you old-timers on that one.
