The Kansas City Chiefs were a league-worst 2-14 in 2012, but drastic changes paid off in 2013. In Andy Reid's first year as
Chiefs head coach, Kansas City went 11-5, en route to a Wild Card berth. Led by Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles, the Chiefs
surprised the football world -- but have plenty more work to do. The Chiefs will attempt to make the playoffs in consecutive years
for the first time since 1995 this season, in what should be one of the most exciting Chiefs seasons in recent history!

The Chiefs were established in 1960, as a member of the American Football League -- and were originally known as the Dallas
Texans, prior to moving to Kansas City in 1963, when they became the Chiefs. While in the AFL, the Chiefs won three AFL championships,
in 1962 (as the Texans), 1966 and 1969.
Kansas City appeared in Super Bowl I, but lost to the Green Bay Packers, 35-10. Three years later, the Chiefs returned to the Super Bowl,
defeating the Minnesota Vikings, 23-7 -- constituting Kansas City's only Super Bowl win, as well as the franchise's last Super Bowl appearance.
The Chiefs returned to prominence in the 90s, making the playoffs in six consecutive seasons between 1990-95 under Marty Schottenheimer,
but never made it to the Super Bowl. Since then, the Chiefs haven't made it back to the playoffs in consecutive seasons -- but that could
change in 2014.
Under Andy Reid, the Chiefs went from having the worst offense in the league in 2012, to having the sixth-best in 2013. With Alex Smith,
Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe and Reid all back in 2014, Chiefs fans can expect to watch their favorite team light up the scoreboard yet again in 2014.
