30. Chiefs Fall To Steelers Kicker
The Kansas City Chiefs endured 50 years of pain before finally winning the Super Bowl for the second time in history in 2020. Then, the following season, they came remarkably close to repeating the same feat. However, they put their fans through decades of agony before reaching the promised land. In January 2017, they came close to the AFC Championship game. However, the Steelers’ Chris Boswell put on a kicking clinic.
Back-to-back playoff meltdowns embarrassed their fans and added to long years of frustration for Kansas City’s fans. “Both playoff collapses hurt to watch but at least had one half of fun in them,” said one fan. “Losing to the Steelers’ kicker is one I’d rather delete. I’m choosing not to thank of anything beyond that.” Boswell’s record six NFL field goals were the difference as he capitalized on needless Chiefs’ mistakes to snatch the game from the brink of defeat.
