8.In a 12-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs, one of Bobby Bell’s best plays was one for which he didn’t even get a stat. It happened early in the fourth quarter of the 1969 AFL divisional playoff game.
The Chiefs defense, charged with defending a 6-3 lead against the great Joe Namath and the New York Jets, faced its hardest test yet.
The Jets had a first-and-goal at the Chiefs’ 1-yard line after cornerback Emmitt Thomas, a future Hall of Fame inductee, committed a pass interference call in the end zone on receiver George Sauer.

Hendricks was a one-of-a-kind individual.
