About Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders
The Chiefs-Raiders rivalry is, without a doubt, one of the most intense in the NFL. The rivalry stems from the fact that the two teams have shared the same division since the establishment of the American Football League in 1960. Initially, they were together in the AFL Western Conference and since 1970, they have been together in the AFC West. The first meeting between the two rivals was on September 16, 1960 – a game won by the Dallas Texans - former name of the Kansas City Chiefs. The teams have met a total of 116 times (including the playoffs). The Chiefs lead the all time series by 62-52-2. With records pretty even, it is a given this rivalry has had some notable moments.
Notable Moments - Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders
How it all began - Even though a rivalry was brewing long before, it was during the 1970 NFL season it intensified. The Chiefs had a 17-1 lead in the fourth quarter, and it seemed like they were ready to run out the clock. Chiefs’ quarterback, Len Dawson rolled right and got enough yardage for a first down. As he fell to the ground, Raiders defensive end, Ben Davidson dove right into Dawson with his helmet. In retaliation, Davidson was attacked by Chiefs wide receiver Otis Taylor. Soon a bench-clearing brawl ensued. Both Davidson and Tyler were ejected.
The Warpaint Parade –Warpaint, Chiefs mascot, was paraded around the field after every touchdown in the 1975 season, as the Chiefs beat the Raiders, 42-10. This prompted the Raiders’ coach, John Madden to make a bitter comment after losing the game.
We couldn’t beat the Chiefs, but we damn near killed their horse.
