And the last time the Chiefs won a game started by a QB they drafted was September 1987, when 1983 first rounder Todd Blackledge led them to a win over the Chargers in the season opener. Blackledge was 6/15, 79 yds, 0 TD, 1 INT.

Blackledge started one more game for KC, a blowout loss to Seattle, before being replaced by HOFers Matt Stevens and Bill Kenney.

It's the longest such streak in the NFL.
