Let’s look back at the Kansas City Chiefs’ best moments from the year 2020.

2020 has been brutal for almost everyone, but the Kansas City Chiefs actually had themselves quite the year. With 2021 around the corner, let’s close out 2020 by looking back at the year that was for the Chiefs with their best moments. We’ll go in order from when everything happened.

Good things for Kansas City Chiefs in 2020 – AFC Divisional Round

When the Chiefs fell into a 24-0 hole against the Houston Texans, it seemed like the same old story for the franchise — Another home playoff game, another disappointing loss. Fortunately, these Chiefs aren’t like the ones we grew up with (coming from a 90s kid at least) and they ended up taking the lead by half time, leading Houston 28-24.

The turning point in that game was absolutely when Daniel Sorensen stopped Justin Reid on a fourth-down attempt deep in the Texans’ own territory. The Chiefs had just scored a touchdown before that and Houston was clearly trying to regain momentum but it backfired miserably. From there, KC scored three more touchdowns in the QUARTER and, as I said, were up 28-24 by the half.

The Chiefs ended up winning this game by a score of 51-31, which didn’t seem like a possibility after how poorly things started for them. After going up 24-0, Houston was outscored 51-7 in the final three quarters. Not a good way to kick off 2020 for the Texans, but for the Chiefs, it was a glorious start to the year.
