17. Otis Taylor scores clinching touchdown in Super Bowl IV (1969)

The Kansas City Chiefs have been to two Super Bowls in their history. They were in the first ever “Super Bowl” a phrase coined by Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt. They lost that game to Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers, 35-10.

It was not until Super Bowl IV that the Chiefs made another appearance in the big game. In Jan. 1970, Kansas City entered the game as the underdog against the heavily-favored Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings were 13-point favorites on that day, only it would not go Minnesota’s way.

Kansas City dominated the powerful Vikings, only allowing 239 total yards. They forced three interceptions and recovered two fumbles under the rainy conditions of the game. Len Dawson was the MVP of the game, but it was receiver Otis Taylor who was the real star that helped seal the game for the Chiefs.

Taylor finished the game with 81 yards on six receptions and one score. The biggest play happened in the third quarter when Dawson hit Taylor with a short pass. Taylor then raced down the right sideline, breaking Earsell Mackabee’s attempted tackle before doing the same to safety Karl Kassulke. Taylor ran into the end zone on a 46-yard touchdown play, sealing the game for the Chiefs.
