12. Kansas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts
In 1997, the Chiefs had the best record in the AFC with 13-3. Naturally, they were heavy favorites in the playoffs against the Colts and their inconsistent 9-7. But things don’t always work out the way you expect. The Chiefs found this out the hard way as they suffered a significant meltdown.
Lin Elliot is the main man who caused their suffering. Yes, that’s right, the Chief’s own kicker missed three field goals. But their quarterback Steve Bono also had a nightmare, throwing three interceptions. In short, they were the makers of their own destruction as the Colts ran out 10-7 winners.
