Alex Smith becomes first Chiefs quarterback to win playoff game since Joe Montana
Joe Montana led the Chiefs to playoff wins in Jan. 1994, the last time they'd won in the postseason before Alex Smith won on Saturday.

In an ironic twist of history, Alex Smith just became the first Kansas City Chiefs quarterback to win a playoff game since . . . Joe Montana! That happened when the Chiefs pummeled the Texans on Saturday 30-0.
The Chiefs hadn't won a playoff game since Jan. 16, 1994 when Montana led the them to 21 fourth-quarter points to beat another Houston franchise -- the Houston Oilers -- 28-20.
The eight-game playoff losing streak was tied for worst in NFL history with the Detroit Lions.
