Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Dave Krieg played well for the Chiefs passing for 3,115 yards. Defense would be the key for the Chiefs 3rd straight playoff berth as Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith recorded 14.5 sacks each.

During the season; the Chiefs wore a “WWD” patch on their jerseys in tribute to vice president of player personnel Whitey Dovell, who died in May 1992.[1]

Week 6: v Philadelphia EaglesEdit

Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs
1 234Total
Eagles 0 3014 17
Chiefs 7 773 24

This game ended the longest ever gap between two NFL teams meeting – it was the first occasion the Chiefs had opposed the Eagles since October 22, 1972,[4] and only their second-ever matchup.[5] This occurred because in previous seasons when the AFC West and NFC East met each other, either the Chiefs or the Eagles (but never both) finished in fifth position and did not play the ordinary set of interconference games.[4]
