The 2006 Kansas City Chiefs season began with the team looking to improve on their 10–6 record in 2005 under new head coach Herman Edwards.
The team battled many obstacles during the 2006 season, including the loss of starting quarterback Trent Green in the first game, the readjustment of a record-breaking offense, and the death of owner and founder Lamar Hunt. Despite the obstacles, the team gained momentum after rebounding from an 0–2 start, clinching the sixth seed in the playoffs with a 9–7 record. The team finished second in the AFC West with a 4–2 divisional record. The Chiefs lost in the Wild Card round of the playoffs 8–23 to their playoff rival and eventual Super Bowl champions, the Indianapolis Colts.
