The Kansas City Chiefs are an NFL football team based in Kansas City, Missouri and play their home games at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs compete in the American Football Conference (AFC) West division. The Chiefs were founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans and in 1963, the team relocated to Kansas City and assumed their current name.
The Chiefs have won three AFL championships, in 1962, 1966, and 1969. The Chiefs were also the second team, after the Green Bay Packers, to appear in more than one Super Bowl and the first to appear in the championship game in two different decades. As of 2016, the Chiefs are the only NFL team based in Missouri, as a result of the St. Louis Rams’ relocation back to Los Angeles, CA.
The Oakland Raiders are an NFL football franchise based in Oakland, CA that plays their home games at Oakland Coliseum. The Raiders began playing in 1960 and play in the American Football Conference (AFC) West division.
In the club’s first three seasons (1960–1962), the team struggled both on and off the field. In 1963, the Raiders appointed eventual owner/general manager Al Davis to the position of head coach. Under Davis’ guidance, the team’s fortunes improved dramatically. In 1967, the Raiders reached the postseason for the first time; they went on to win their first, and only, AFL title that year by beating the Houston Oilers in the Championship Game.
