THIS WEEK IN CHIEFS HISTORY

December 26, 1998 (http://slam.canoe.ca/FootballNFL98Games/dec26_kc_oak.html#summaryl)

KANSAS CITY 31, OAKLAND 24

Chiefs top Raiders to finish season

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Derrick Thomas returned a fumble 44 yards for a score and Tony Gonzalez caught a 20-yard touchdown pass to break a fourth-quarter tie as the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Oakland Raiders 31-24 Saturday in their season finale.

Kansas City has won 17 of its last 19 games against the Raiders, who lost two quarterbacks to groin injuries in the contest and finished the game with a third quarterback who has missed most of the season with a groin injury.

Bam Morris had two one-yard scoring runs and Pete Stoyanovich added a 30-yard field goal for the Chiefs (7-9). Elvis Grbac, in his first start since Nov. 8, was 20-of-32 for 254 with two interceptions and the scoring toss to Gonzalez.

Jeff George had a 15-yard scoring pass to James Jett and Wade Wilson threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Tim Brown for the Raiders (8-8), who have not had a winning season since 1994 -- the year before they returned to Oakland from Los Angeles.

Randy Jordan added a 10-yard scoring run and Greg Davis kicked a 44-yard field goal for Oakland, which lost six of its final eight games.
Wilson was 13-of-18 for 127 yards before hurting his groin while dropping back to pass early in the third quarter. He was relieved by Donald Hollas, who also hurt his groin and was replaced by George after just 11 plays.

George, who has not played a full game since late September because of a groin injury, was 9-of-18 for 138 yards.

Wilson completed five straight passes, covering 59 yards, as the Raiders took a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter on the scoring toss to Brown in the corner of the end zone.

An interception by Charles Woodson, the fifth of the season for the rookie cornerback, led to Jordan's scoring run and a 14-0 Oakland lead.

Grbac's passes of 29 and 14 yards to Derrick Alexander led the Chiefs on their first scoring drive, culminating in Morris' dive over the middle of the line early in the second quarter.
The Chiefs tied the game early in the third period on Morris' second scoring run, following a pass interference penalty on Woodson in the end zone.

After a field goal by each team, Leslie O'Neal sacked Hollas and forced a fumble that Thomas scooped up and returned for a TD and a 24-17 Chiefs lead.

Nice to know someone cares!

I just wish there was a way to get box scores, recaps and pictures for older games.

Ah, the good ol' days when our offensive stars were Grbac and Bam Morris, and our leading receiver was Kimble Anders.

That must have been Marty's only losing season while he was in KC. I wish he was in KC this year, we'd be going to the playoffs.

IIRC, they announced during that game that Derrick Alexander went over 1000 yards for the season. Everybody was looking for a bright spot on the losing season, and it was cool since the Chiefs hadn't had a 1000 yard year out of a reciever in very long time... Of course an hour or so after the game the official stats were released and one of Derrick's long passes was called a run, and he finished with just under 1000 for the year. I was driving over to my friends house listening to Mitch Holthus wrap up the year and I remember him sounding VERY depressed even though we had just won the game.


I think it was a couple weeks later when Marty "retired."
