Kansas City Chiefs Top Ten Moments of 2013: Addicts Poll


Happy Pro Bowl Sunday, Addicts. It’s a bitter sweet day because with the Pro Bowl tonight, that means there’s only one football game left for the 2013 season.

With that said, we are looking back at the surprising — and somewhat heartbreaking — season that was the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs.

Your favorite AA Writers are voting on these moments as we speak, but because AA is what it is because of you, I thought I would let you in on the fun.

Please take a look at each of the following moments and vote on them using our poll below. We will tabulate the results and add them to our own before we announce the winners!

Ron Parker Strip/Sack/Recovery Tony Romo

The Week 2 match up between the Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys saw a close, hard-fought game. With the Chiefs holding on to a slim one-point lead at the start of the fourth quarter, Romo appeared to be starting a drive when he was sacked by the unknown DB, Ron Parker. Parker not only stripped Romo of the ball, but recovered the fumble, single handedly ending the Cowboys’ drive.

Eric Berry Pick Six of Michael Vick

The Chiefs traveled to Philadelphia to face the Eagles on a Week 3 Thursday Night Football match up. After kicking a field goal on their first drive, the Chiefs quickly ended the Eagles first attempt at offense. Michael Vick stared down his receiver which allowed Derrick Johnson to jump the route, tipping the ball into Berry’s hands for the TD.

Dexter McCluster 89 Yard Punt Return

Playing against the once-powerful New York Giants, the game was still uncertain at 17-7 when the Giants were forced to punt. McCluster fielded the ball at the 11-yard line and spun, juked and sprinted his way into the end zone. It was one of the most prolific plays of the season and set the tone for the Chiefs special teams unit.

Chiefs Defense Sacks Terrel Pryor 10 Times/Arrowhead Sets World Crowd Noise Record

It was a monster game. This one is special for me because it was my first time at Arrowhead, but regardless it was awesome! The Chiefs defense got to the Oakland Raiders quarterback 10 times. The crowd was loud you couldn’t hear yourself think. A world record was set that day that should still be standing if it wasn’t for a half-dome in the Pacific Northwest.

Tamba Hali Sack/Strip of Case Keenum, Derrick Johnson Recovers

The Week 7 match up against the struggling Houston Texans saw the introduction of rookie quarterback Case Keenum. The Chiefs were clinging to a slim one-point fourth quarter lead when the Texans got the ball. On 2nd-and-10, Keenum rolled out of the pocket with Hali in hot pursuit. The relentless pass-rusher made it to the QB before he could get rid of the ball, forcing it from his hands. Johnson was in perfect position to pick up the loose ball and secure the victory for the Chiefs

Sean Smith 101-Yard Pick Six Against the Buffalo Bills

Down 10-3 in the third quarter, it appeared as if the Bills were going to go up by two touchdowns when quarterback Jeff Tuel dropped back to pass at the Chiefs one-yard line. Cornerback Sean Smith wasn’t going to allow that to happen, though as he stepped in front of the pass and took it 101-yards the other way to the house, helping the Chiefs beat the Bills and go 9-0 before the bye.

Knile Davis 108-Yard Kick off Return Touchdown

After a Peyton Manning drive to tie the game at seven, Chiefs rookie RB Knile Davis fielded the ensuing kickoff eight yards deep in the end zone before bringing it out. 108-yards later he was in the end zone. It was an awesome play, especially against the Broncos.

Jamaal Charles Scores Five TD’s/Chiefs Clinch the Playoffs

Jamaal Charles became the first running back in the history of the NFL to score four receiving and one rushing TD in the same game. He did it on screens and long passes. Nobody could touch him. At the end of the day, he held a record and the Chiefs had a ticket to the post season.

The Chiefs JV Nearly Beat the Chargers’ Starters (And San Diego Needed Some Help from the Refs to Win)

Everyone wrote the game off as a loss for the Chiefs before it even started. Hell, I went with my wife to a barbeque at a friends house, not even caring to see the game. How wrong we all were. Had it not been for a missed Ryan Succop field goal (or a blown call by the officials) the Chiefs would have completed the ultimate upset and the post season could have been much different.

Alex Smith 79-Yard Touchdown Pass to Donnie Avery

And they say Smith can’t throw the long ball. After a perfectly executed play action, Smith found a streaking Avery who had about three steps on his defender. With a perfectly placed ball that was in the air for 60 yards, Smith hit Avery in stride, who then walked into the end zone.

There they are, Addicts. Our top ten moments from the season. Please use the poll to vote and we’ll announce the winners in the coming weeks!

    Guess ima vote for 79 yard td pass to D.Avery. A.Smiths best play his whole career.

    • Jason Seibel

      First post I’ve ever seen you write that had more “up” votes than “down.”

      • micah stephenson

        What! Whatever! Lol

  • mnelson52

    The most impressive was our 2nd and 3rd string defensive players holding SD, in SD, to a lot less points than our 1st string did, at home with the 12th man helping.

  • CrispySBC

    I was torn between JC scoring 5x’s … 5x’s is so freakin impressive. But I think I enjoyed seeing the “scrubs” play tough against the Charger’s almost as much. That bodes well for the Chief’s future. I can’t wait until the draft and then OTA’s.

  • KCMikeG

    Isn’t it fantastic that we had 10 such exciting moments to choose from. I selected the 10 sack Guinness World record because I was there to experience every moment of the beat down of the hated faiders and to play my role in the Roaring of the Red Sea! Lifetime memory!

    • micah stephenson

      The crowd was loud that day. I cud barely hear myself yelling. The look on the Raider fans faces was priceless!

  • T.Hagen

    Jamal 5 touchdowns was the one I picked but that was almost ruined due to the Raiders catching up , Chiefs second half no stop defense almost cost us the game but Jamal would not be denied.

  • Chris Tarrants

    I loved them all! I do however want to add one to the list. Dontari Poe and his personal foul for taunting against the colts. I know it isn’t “PC” to love plays like that but I can’t help but see that fire deep down inside of the big man. If we are losing and our guys just mosey around kicking rocks playing woe is me then something is wrong! This is a new age and a new Chiefs team where losing isn’t acceptable to the fans or the PLAYERS! I want to see more of that burning passion, the penalty sucked but its more than just the 15 yards its that attitude and drive that says enough is enough and this isn’t gonna happen. Keys be honest how scary would that be to have that 330 beast of a man not only trying to rip your head off to get to the qb but now he is a pissed off 330 man beast! I love it and I want to see more of it, hopefully he learns to toe the line and not be a Suh clone but be just as feared

  • Jacob

    Breaking the noise record. It was a statement we as Chiefs fans had to make, and not many things beat seeing the men in Red & Gold sack the black and silver’s QB 10 times.
