Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1986 Kansas City Chiefs season ended with a 10-6 record, the most wins for the franchise since 1971. The Chiefs clinched a wild card playoff berth, but lost to the New York Jets 15-35. Former linebacker Willie Lanier was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on August 2. On the field, the pieces started coming together for head coach John Mackovic. His offense displayed plenty of scoring punch, while the clubs defense and special teams became increasingly effective. With the team sitting at 3-3, Bill Kenney replaced Todd Blackledge for the second half of the season in a game against San Diego, guiding the club to a 42-41 victory. That win was the first of four consecutive triumphs with Kenney at the helm, the clubs longest winning streak since 1980. Poised with a 7-3 record after 10 games, three straight losses in November put the Chiefs playoff chances in jeopardy. Two December wins gave Kansas City a 9-6 mark, putting the Chiefs on the verge of their first postseason berth in 15 years.show more
