List of Kansas City Chiefs seasons

The Kansas City Chiefs have completed 59 seasons in professional American football and 49 with the National Football League (NFL). This article documents the season-by-season records of the Chiefs franchise from 1960 to the conclusion of their most recent season in 2018, including postseason records, and league awards for individual players or head coaches.

The team began play as a charter member of the American Football League (AFL) in 1960 as the Dallas Texans. Following the 1962 AFL season, the team relocated to Kansas City, Missouri and was renamed the Kansas City Chiefs. The team has played in 900 total games in a total of 59 seasons, and a winning percentage of .521. The team’s three 13-win seasons in 1995, 1997, and 2003 remain their best regular season records to date and their 2–14 record in 2008 and 2012 is the Chiefs’ worst.

The Texans/Chiefs were the winningest team in the history of the AFL, compiling an 87–48 record from 1960 to 1969. The team won three league championships and served as the AFL’s representative in Super Bowls I and IV in 1966 and 1969. Since the franchise’s alignment to the NFL in 1970, the team has won eleven division championships including three straight and eight wild card playoff berths, seven of which were between 1990 and 1997 when the team never lost as many games as it won. Despite the franchise’s early success, the Chiefs did not win a post-season game between the 1993–94 and 2015–16 playoffs, whilst their victory on January 11, 1970 remains the franchise’s only Super Bowl title to date. It had been a long drought between AFC Championship games, with a large build up to the 2018-2019 game. Unfortunately, it ended in crushing defeat as the Patriots moved on to win yet another Super Bowl ring.

The Chiefs have suffered two main periods of failure. Between 1972 and 1985 the Kansas City Chiefs never appeared in the postseason and achieved only one winning season (in 1981) from 1974 until 1985. Between 2007 and 2012, the Chiefs also struggled, with two two-win and two four-win seasons. However, the recent Chiefs have done much better, with a 67–34 record (including postseason) from the 2013 to 2018 seasons. After a Week 10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in 2018, the Chiefs clinched six consecutive winning seasons and three consecutive division titles.

List of Kansas State Wildcats in the NFL Draft

This is a list of Kansas State Wildcats football players drafted into the National Football League (NFL) and American Football League (AFL). Kansas State has had a total of 145 players selected – including five players taken in the first round – from the first NFL Draft in 1936 through the 2018 NFL Draft. Kansas State has an active streak of having at least one player drafted into the NFL for 25 consecutive years (1994–2018).

After the NFL merged with the AFL in 1966, the history of the AFL was officially adopted by the NFL and therefore this list includes players taken in the AFL Draft (1960–1966) and in the Common Draft (1967–1969) in addition to the NFL Draft. Once the AFL officially merged with the NFL in 1970, the "Common Draft" simply became the NFL Draft. Because four KSU players were selected in both the NFL and AFL drafts, the total number of selections listed below is 149 (including one "redshirt" selection in the 1965 AFL Draft), through the 2018 draft.

Each NFL franchise seeks to add new players through the annual NFL Draft. The draft rules were last updated in 2009. The team with the worst record the previous year picks first, the next-worst team second, and so on. Teams that did not make the playoffs are ordered by their regular-season record with any remaining ties broken by strength of schedule. Playoff participants are sequenced after non-playoff teams, based on their round of elimination (wild card, division, conference, and Super Bowl).
