The Kansas City Chiefs are a great NFL franchise that has had a unique history. They started out as the Dallas Texans in the first year of the AFL before later relocation to Kansas City and becoming the Chiefs. Since then, they have put together great seasons, often thanks to good performances by their quarterbacks.
The Chiefs have had some great players throwing the ball for them over the years, including Len Dawson, Joe Montana, Trent Green, Elvis Grbac, Rich Gannon, Bill Kenney, and more. Who though has thrown the most touchdown passes for the team, even though they were not the quarterback?
Several players have thrown touchdown passes even though they play other positions. This usually happens due to a trick or gadget play being called like a halfback option pass or an end around pass. The players who have done this one time for the Chiefs include Bert Coan, Carlos Carson, Jewerl Thomas, Mark Bradley, Larry Johnson, Warren McVea, Curtis McClinton, and Mike Garrett.
Only one non quarterback playing player in Chiefs history though has thrown for more than one touchdown for the team. Pro Football Hall of Fame Running Back Marcus Allen threw for two touchdowns during his time with the Kansas City Chiefs. Both of Allen’s touchdown passes with the Chiefs came in the month of November in 1997. The first one was the go ahead score in a 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, it went for 14 yards and was caught by Danan Hughes. Later that month he threw a one yard touchdown pass to Ted Popson. Allen had previously thrown four touchdown passes during his time with the Raiders.
