During Sunday’s AFC title game, the Kansas City Chiefs did something a tad unusual. Due to their massive postseason struggles, they don’t have a long list of postseason heroes they can bring in for motivational purposes.
With Len Dawson doing radio, they opted to go to arguably their other most well-known quarterback in postseason history…Joe Montana.
Before Patrick Mahomes appeared in Sunday’s game, Montana was the last Chiefs quarterback to appear in the AFC title game – a 30-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills during the 1993 season in a game where the four-time Super Bowl winner left the game with a concussion.
Unfortunately for Montana and the Chiefs, all of the energy in Arrowhead Stadium couldn’t slow down Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, who managed to win the AFC Championship 37-31 in overtime on Sunday.
