7 Rare photos from the last time KC won a playoff game

It’s been 22 years since the Chiefs won a playoff game, but the last time they did was against — you guessed it — a team from Houston. Back then they were called the Oilers, but it’d still be poetic justice for the Chiefs to finally break their playoff spell against the city they last beat.

Here are some rare photos from their last playoff victory:

This game was played on AstroTurf, which was about as soft as concrete.

Not saying we’re superstitious, but the Chiefs haven’t won a playoff game since this was published. #SICoverJinx

Let’s hope some of that Montana Magic rubs off on Alex Smith. Go Chiefs!
