Reflecting on the 10 Defining Moments of the Kansas City Chiefs' 2013 Season

At this point last year, this wouldn't have been a slideshow. It would've been a slide. Two at most. 

The 2012 Kansas City Chiefs were a special kind of awful.

With the exception of cardiac kids Jamaal Charles and Justin Houston—and for the record, ballooned elbow or not, I would never call Houston "kid" if I was within arm's reach of him. Two-to-one odds that man's first shave came in a high chair—headlining an overtime upset at New Orleans, every "defining" moment would've just been a cringeworthy turnover by a head-hanging quarterback.

Opportunity knocks but once. The second time around, judging by the hordes of multi-millionaire owners lining up at his doorstep, Andy Reid is the one who knocks.
