Kansas City Chiefs head coach Marty Schottenheimer and his quarterback Joe Montana were both winless in Mile High Stadium as they stood at a combined 0-10 inside those unfriendly confines. John Elway had been a thorn in the Chiefs side for years by posting 6 game winning drives against the division rival (1 in each of the last 5 years). It wouldn’t be an easy feat for the Chiefs to overcome with a raucous Monday Night Football crowd, defensive tackle Dan Saleaumua out with a sprained knee, and Derrick Thomas being benched for the start of the game for being an hour late to a team meeting earlier in the week. However, this would prove to be night that Chiefs fans wouldn’t soon forget as all appeared to be lost after a late John Elway scramble for the go-ahead touchdown, but never count out Joe Montana. Joe showed the world that he didn’t leave the “Montana Magic” in San Francisco and he had plenty left to give to the Kansas City Chiefs. Joe Montana went under center with 0:13 left in the game and found Willie Davis in the corner of the end zone to win 31-28 and end his and Marty Schotteneheimer’s winless streak at Mile High Stadium.
