The First Super Bowl The significance of 1966 was twofold. First, the team finally achieved the kind of success that had been expected of them when they first came to Kansas City and became what they always thought they were; the best team in the league. More importantly, the Chiefs were finally and forever taken to the hearts of Kansas City's fans. And when the Chiefs thumped Buffalo, 31-7, in the 1966 AFL Championship Game, they earned the right to play the NFL champion Green Bay Packers in the first-ever AFL-NFL World Championship Game (not yet officially called the Super Bowl) in Los Angeles, the initial step of the two leagues ultimate merger, which would occur in 1970.

A devastating playoff loss to the Raiders ended the 1968 season, but the Chiefs playersand Stram in particularfelt they had the kind of team needed to return to make a run at the Super Bowl. Jim Marsalis, the club's top draft pick in 1969, took over the left cornerback spot and immediately improved the secondary on an already strong defense.  Jim Marsalis (number 40 on ground), Bobby Bell and Willie Lanier look on. The Chiefs overcame several injuries throughout the 1969 season, specifically the one to Len Dawson's knee, and again challenged the Raiders for the Western Division title.

The game marked the end of Municipal Stadium, and also the end of the Chiefs as a league power. Chiefs cornerback, Jim Marsalis, plays it tight against the Raiders' Fred Biletnikoff. The Losing Years The Chiefs slipped a lot and fell to 5-9 in 1974. Hunt and Steadman decided it was time to make a change. After 15 years as the Chiefs head coach, Hank Stram was fired, a move which ignited a chain reaction that had been building for two seasons. The Chiefs spiraled into a dismal free-fall to the bottom of the NFL.
