1. 10 regular season wins in a row was the longest streak in franchise history

The Chiefs had won 9 games in a row on two separate occasions—2003 and 2013—before last season but never 10 in a row.

That all changed in 2015 when the Chiefs finished the season on a 10-game winning streak, the longest in franchise history.

2. Andy Reid set the franchise coaching record for total wins in the first three seasons of a tenure

No head coach has come to the Chiefs and won more than Andy Reid in his first three seasons with the club. His 11 wins in 2013, 9 wins in 2014 and 11 wins in 2015 total to 31, the finest mark for any Chiefs head coach in franchise history.

5. Alex Smith takes franchise quarterback rushing record

During the Chiefs 10-game winning streak, Alex Smith showed he was a true dual threat, complementing his passing game with the ability to scramble and run for first downs. By season's end, his 498 yards rushing were the most in a single season for a quarterback in Chiefs history.

6. Alex Smith takes a place in NFL history by not throwing interceptions

There was a long stretch of time during the 2015 season during which Smith did not throw an interception. After throwing one against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3, Smith didn't throw another until Week 14 against the San Diego Chargers. That spanned 76 days and 312 pass attempts, second only to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in NFL history (358).

Smith would go on to set the playoff streak for pass attempts without an interception in NFL history during the Divisional Round game against the Houston Texans. Smith's streak ended with 119 consecutive passes without a pick during the game.
