The 1996 Kansas City Chiefs season resulted in a 9–7 record and second place finish in the AFC West. Following the Chiefs' painful loss in the playoffs the year before, the Chiefs could not match their might from 1995. Despite having the team being predicted as eventual winners of Super Bowl XXXI by Sports Illustrated,[1] the team barely missed the playoffs.
