Kansas City Chiefs’ All-Time Passing TD Leaders

Len Dawson

Trent Green


The Kansas City Chiefs were an AFL franchise, beginning play in 1960 as the Dallas Texans, becoming the Kansas City Chiefs in 1963, and then merging into the NFL in 1970.  The Chiefs have won two championships, including one Super Bowl in 1969.

The Chiefs have an overall winning record, but have been hot and cold over the years.  They have fielded some great quarterbacks along the way, and here is a short list of the Chiefs’ all-time leaders in passing touchdowns:


Len Dawson (237)—Len Dawson played for this franchise most of his career, from 1962 to 1975, and led them to their only Super Bowl title.  Dawson ranks first in Chiefs’ history with 237 touchdown passes, and his best season was 1964.  That year, Dawson had career highs in passing yardage (2879) and touchdown passes (30), with 18 interceptions.


Trent Green (118)—Trent Green played for Kansas City from 2001 to 2006, and he ranks second in franchise history with 118 TD passes.  Green had his best season in 2004, when he notched career best numbers in passing yards (4591) and touchdown passes (27) with 17 picks.


Bill Kenney (105)—Bill Kenney played for the Chiefs his entire career, from 1980 to 1988, and he ranks third in the team’s history with 105 touchdown passes.  Kenney’s best season was 1983, when he made the Pro Bowl.  That year, he threw for career highs in passing yards (4348) and TD passes (24), with 18 interceptions.


Steve DeBerg (67)—Journeyman QB Steve DeBerg played for Kansas City from 1988 to 1991, and he ranks fourth in Chiefs’ history with 67 TD passes.  DeBerg had his best season in 1990, when he threw for 3444 yards and a career best 23 touchdown passes, with just 4 picks (led the NFL with a 0.9% interception ratio). 


Elvis Grbac (66)—Elvis Grbac played for the Chiefs from 1997 to 2000, and he ranks fifth in franchise history with 66 touchdown passes.  Grbac’s best season was 2000, when he made the Pro Bowl for the only time in his career.  That year, Grbac had career highs in passing yards (4169) and TD passes (28), with 14 interceptions.
