•  Otis Taylor against Minnesota, Super Bowl IV, Jan. 11, 1970.

Perhaps the most iconic play in team history. Taylor caught a short pass, broke a tackle attempt and ran to the end zone to complete the 46-yard play that clinched the club’s only Super Bowl victory.

• 

Willie Davis against Denver, Oct., 17, 1994.

The Chiefs broke a long losing streak against the Broncos in Denver and won the Joe Montana-John Elway showdown when Davis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass with 8 seconds remaining. The Chiefs won the Monday night game 31-28.

• 

Keith Cash against Houston, second round of AFC playoffs, Jan. 16, 1994.

Cash’s 7-yard touchdown catch from Montana was a big play in the 28-20 victory that sent the Chiefs to the AFC championship game. But Cash made the play even more memorable by spiking the ball off a poster of Houston defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan.

• 

Andre Rison against Oakland, Sept. 8, 1997.

The Chiefs completed a frantic comeback in a Monday night game on Rison’s 32-yard touchdown catch from Elvis Grbac with 3 seconds remaining that beat the Raiders 28-27. The Raiders inexplicably let Rison get behind their coverage.

• 

Tim Barnett against Pittsburgh, first round of AFC playoffs, Jan. 8, 1994.

Barnett’s 7-yard touchdown catch from Montana with 1:43 remaining tied the game at 24-24 and sent it to overtime. There, the Chiefs won on a Nick Lowery field goal.

• 

Marc Boerigter against San Diego, Dec. 22, 2002.

Boerigter completed the longest play from scrimmage in team history by taking a Trent Green pass 99 yards for a touchdown. The Chiefs needed the play to beat the Chargers 24-22 and keep their playoff hopes alive.

• 

Tony Gonzalez against Cincinnati, Dec. 28, 2008. The last pass Gonzalez caught for the Chiefs was a 5-yard touchdown from Tyler Thigpen. It didn’t prevent the woeful Chiefs from losing to the Bengals 16-6.
