The Kansas City Chiefs started off their AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Houston Texans poorly. They fell behind by a score of 24-0 early on and it looked like they were on their way to an upset loss to the Texans.
However, the Chiefs offense sparked into gear following their first three fruitless drives. Patrick Mahomes helped the squad to rattle off seven consecutive touchdown drives, setting a postseason record and achieving something that hadn't been done at the NFL level in over a decade.
According to ESPN's Ed Werder, the last time that an NFL team scored a touchdown on seven straight possessions was when the New England Patriots did so against the Tennessee Titans in 2009.
That contest was one of the most memorable regular-season wins for the Patriots of the past two decades.
The game was at Gillette Stadium, it was snowing quite a bit, and the Patriots were in their alternate red jerseys for the contest. Tom Brady threw for six touchdowns, five of which went to Wes Welker and Randy Moss. Brian Hoyer saw extensive action as a backup in the blowout and went 9 for 11 for 52 yards.
And defensively, the Patriots limited the Titans to a mind-boggling negative-seven passing yards.
The Patriots won the game 59-0 and thanks to the team's official Twitter account, you can relive the best highlights from the game.

That outing was certainly impressive for the Patriots. Scoring seven straight touchdowns was a remarkable feat that afforded them the opportunity to build a massive lead in the blowout.
The Chiefs' feat was similarly impressive. Their offense deserves credit for being able to come from behind to earn the win and advance to the 2020 AFC Championship game.
