PK Morten Andersen - He last missed a field-goal attempt of under 40 yards in 2001, but when he missed from 31 yards in the playoff loss to the Colts, it raised questions about the future of the Chiefs' 43-year-old kicker. Coach Dick Vermeil admitted late in the season that he was reluctant to let Andersen try from much farther than 42 yards, especially outdoors in cold weather.
KR Dante Hall's - His 208 kickoff return yards -- 92 of them on a kickoff return for a TD -- set a Chiefs single-game postseason record, beating the 154 kickoff yards of Ed Podolak in the famous six-period Christmas Day loss to Miami in 1971. Hall had 227 combined net yards (returning/receiving), the second-highest single-game total in Chiefs postseason history.
RB Priest Holmes - The 176 rushing yards was a Chiefs single-game postseason rushing record, breaking the mark of 130 established by Barry Word against the L.A. Raiders in 1991. Holmes1 48-yard run in the third quarter was the longest run in Chiefs postseason history.
QUOTE TO NOTE:
"I thought it was questionable, but a call is a call. In this league, officials don't make a mistake until Tuesday or Wednesday. But if you can't win a big game in spite of a call, then you can't win." -- Coach Dick Vermeil, on an offensive pass interference call against Tony Gonzalez that wiped out a 27-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. The Chiefs are still looking at game film trying to find the push off.
