KC Chiefs: Five Worst Starting Quarterbacks In Team History

The next week the Chiefs hosted the Steelers on Sunday Night Football, and Palko didn’t look awful, despite throwing three interceptions. The Chiefs were only down by four points near the end of the game, but Palko threw a game-sealing interception to give Pittsburgh the win.

Palko was able to lead the Chiefs to one win in his four starts, a 10-3 victory over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in the third start of his career. In that game, Palko completed a 38-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to Dexter McCluster as the first half expired. That’s about the only memorable thing Tyler Palko did for the KC Chiefs.

In his fourth and final start of 2011 (and his career up to this point), Palko was atrocious against the New York Jets. The team went on to lose 37-10 and Todd Haley was fired the next day. Kyle Orton went on to start the remaining games of the season after Palko was (finally) benched.

Palko was let go from the team after 2011 and was not signed by another NFL team. He currently helps out with Pittsburgh Panthers broadcasts on Comcast.
