1997 Chicago Bears season

The 1997 Chicago Bears season was their 78th regular season completed in the National Football League (NFL). The club posted a 4–12 record under head coach Dave Wannstedt. It was the club's first 4-win season since the club posted a 4–10 record in 1975. The team allowed a franchise-record 421 points in 1997.

1998 Chicago Bears season

The 1998 Chicago Bears season was their 79th regular season completed in the National Football League (NFL). The club posted a 4–12 record under head coach Dave Wannstedt. It was the club's second straight 4–12 finish, which ultimately cost Wannstedt his job.

1999 Chicago Bears season

The 1999 Chicago Bears season was their 80th regular season completed in the National Football League (NFL). On January 24, Dick Jauron was named head coach. The club posted a 6–10 record under Jauron, who replaced Dave Wannstedt.

Quarterbacks Shane Matthews (1,645), Cade McNown (1,465) and Jim Miller (1,242) combined for 4,352 passing yards during the season, the most in franchise history.

2000 Chicago Bears season

The 2000 Chicago Bears season was their 81st regular season completed in the National Football League. The club posted a disappointing 5–11 record under head coach Dick Jauron. The season saw the addition of rookie sensation Brian Urlacher who would win the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award.

The Bears in 2000 played an NFL record 13 games against opponents that ended the season with a winning record, including four in their own division twice each; the Bears had a record of 4–9 against these teams.

2001 Kansas City Chiefs season

The 2001 Kansas City Chiefs season was the franchise's 32nd season in the National Football League, the 42nd overall and the first under head coach Dick Vermeil, and failing to qualify for the playoffs or to improve upon their 7–9 record from 2000, with a 6–10 record, which netted them a fourth place finish in the AFC West.

Along with new coaches joining the team, new additions appeared on the Chiefs’ roster, including running back Priest Holmes and quarterback Trent Green. Coach Dick Vermeil began to install a powerful offense similar to the one he installed in St. Louis to win Super Bowl XXXIV.

2002 Kansas City Chiefs season

The 2002 Kansas City Chiefs season was the franchise's 33rd season in the National Football League, the 43rd overall, the franchise's 40th season in Kansas City, Missouri and the second under head coach Dick Vermeil.

The Chiefs's high-powered offense was led by quarterback Trent Green and 2002 NFL Offensive Player of the Year Priest Holmes, in the second of Holmes's three consecutive all-pro seasons. Green had a 2-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio (26 to 13), and Holmes led the league in touchdowns (24) and overall scoring (144 points).

Kansas City scored 467 points (29.2 per game), but gave up 399 points (24.9 per game), the second most in the AFC and fifth-most in the NFL. Football Outsiders stated that the 2002 Chiefs have the second-largest Offense-Defense imbalance from 1992–2010 (the largest discrepancy coming from the 1992 Seattle Seahawks). Football Outsiders also calculated that the Chiefs had the second most efficient running game in the same period (second only to the 2000 St. Louis Rams).The Chiefs' offense also set two new NFL records with the fewest fumbles in a season (7, broken in 2010) and fewest fumbles lost in a season (2), the latter of which still stands.

2004 Kansas City Chiefs season

The 2004 Kansas City Chiefs season was the franchise's 45th season, their 42nd in Kansas City, and 35th in the National Football League.

The 2004 season proved not to be as successful as the team's previous season. Though the Chiefs finished the regular season with the most yards and the second highest number of points, they also had a losing record of 7–9 and no playoff appearance. In fact, the Chiefs' 483 points-scored was the highest total in NFL history for a team that finished the season with a losing record.

2009 Pro Bowl

The 2009 Pro Bowl was the National Football League's all-star game for the 2008 season. It was played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on February 8, 2009. This was the most recent year that the game was held after the Super Bowl. The NFC defeated the AFC, 30–21.The AFC was coached by Baltimore's John Harbaugh, while the NFC's coach was Philadelphia's Andy Reid.

This is the last game to be held one week after the Super Bowl and the last game where players of the two teams competing in the Super Bowl play in the Pro Bowl.

2010 Kansas City Chiefs season

The 2010 Kansas City Chiefs season was the franchise's 41st season in the National Football League, the 51st overall and the second under the head coach/general manager tandem of Todd Haley and Scott Pioli. The team improved on its 4–12 record from 2009, and won their first AFC West division title since 2003. In 2010, the Chiefs moved training camp to Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri after spending the previous 19 summers in River Falls, Wisconsin.

2011 Kansas City Chiefs season

The 2011 Kansas City Chiefs season was the franchise's 42nd season in the National Football League, the 52nd overall and the third under the head coach/general manager tandem of Todd Haley and Scott Pioli. The Chiefs failed to improve on their 10–6 record in 2010.

On July 25, the NFLPA and the NFL owners agreed on a new collective bargaining agreement. The Chiefs training camp began on July 29 in St. Joseph, MO. The Chiefs played their first preseason game on August 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On September 11, the Chiefs opened their regular season against the Buffalo Bills.

Despite entering the season with high expectations, even with their tough schedule, they did not earn their first win until Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings and finished the first quarter of the season with a disappointing 1–3 record. After starting the season 5–8, head coach Todd Haley was fired after a 37–10 loss to the New York Jets and replaced by defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel on an interim basis for the remainder of the season. One bright spot of the season is the first game after Crennel took over as interim head coach; an upset win against the then 13–0 Green Bay Packers to ruin their perfect season hopes (though the Packers still finished with a 15–1 record).
