The 1985 Kansas City Chiefs season ended with a 6-10 record, and last place finish in the AFC West.

The Chiefs got off to a flying start in 1985 with a 47-27 win at New Orleans, while safety Deron Cherry tied an NFL record by registering four interceptions in a 28-7 win against Seattle on September 29 as the club boasted a 3-1 record four games into the season. [http://www.kcchiefs.com/history/80s Kansas City Chiefs History 1980's] ] The club was then confronted with a seven-game losing streak that wasn’t snapped until quarterback Todd Blackledge was installed as the starter against Indianapolis on November 24. The team rebounded to win three of its final five contests of the year with Blackledge under center, further inflaming a quarterback controversy that continued into the 1986 season.

One of the few remaining bright spots in a disappointing 6-10 season came in the regular season finale against San Diego when wide receiver Stephone Paige set an NFL record with 309 receiving yards in a 38-34 win, breaking the previous mark of 303 yards set by Cleveland's Jim Benton in 1945. Paige’s mark was subsequently surpassed by a 336-yard effort by Willie Anderson (Los Angeles Rams) in 1989.
