Kansas City Chiefs Tickets
Kansas City Chiefs Tickets - Description
The Kansas City Chiefs were originally known as the Dallas Texans and were a founding member of the American Football League. The Chiefs moved to Kansas City in 1963 and were assimilated into the NFL during the merger of the two leagues in 1970. The Chiefs won three league championships when they were members of the AFL. When they defeated the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV in 1970, they were only one of two AFL teams to defeat a NFL team for a championship. The Kansas City Chiefs are owned by the Hunt family, which is presided over by Clark Hunt. Not only is Clark Hunt instrumental in the operations of the Chiefs, but he also owns the Columbus Crew and FC Dallas of Major League Soccer.

Kansas City Chiefs 2011 Team Outlook
Kansas City made huge strides last season, surprising everyone with ten wins after several years of dismal scores. The Chiefs then went on to win the AFC West championship for the first time in seven years, led by quarterback Matt Cassel and running back Jamaal Charles. The team will have a more difficult time in 2011, as they will be playing in a strong divsion, but Cassel proved that he is capable of great things when he led his team to victory in week 15 ten days after an appendectomy. The Chiefs also gained wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin in the 2011 draft, who shows a lot of promise. If Cassel can continue to improve, this team has a chance to make it to the postseason again this year.
