The Kansas City Chiefs have an offense that’s capable of scoring 50-plus points, but even the pyrotechnics crew at Arrowhead Stadium wasn’t quite prepared for the scoring onslaught that unfolded during Sunday’s AFC Divisional round game against the Texans.
After initially trailing Houston 24-0, the Chiefs came alive to close the game out on a 51-7 run (and a 51-31 win). At one point, the Chiefs had a streak of seven straight possessions with a touchdown. That all took a significant toll on Arrowhead Stadium’s firework inventory.
Towards the end of the fourth quarter, the Arrowhead sideboards displayed a message that the Chiefs’ performance resulted in the stadium running out of fireworks.
The Chiefs became the first team in NFL postseason history to win a game by 20 points after coming back from a 20-point deficit. Kansas City also became the first team in postseason history to score over 50 points after putting up a goose egg in the first quarter.
We can probably expect the crew to load up on fireworks for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Titans.
