An NFL legend is in attendance at the AFC Championship Game – and it’s not just Tom Brady.
NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana was spotted in the attendance at Arrowhead Stadium for the Chiefs-Patriots matchup.
Though Montana is most famous for the four Super Bowl titles he won with the San Francisco 49ers, he played the last two seasons of his career with the Chiefs.
Montana also holds the distinction of being the last quarterback to have led the Chiefs to the AFC Championship Game, doing so in 1993. The Chiefs ultimately lost that game on the road to the Buffalo Bills, 30-13.

Montana retired following the 1994 season, but not before leading the NFL in interception percentage with a career-best 1.8-percent.
When he retired, Montana was the NFL’s all-time leader in career-passer rating with 127.8.
Montana also holds the distinction of having the most passes in the Super Bowl without an interception with 122 in four games.
He also held the distinction of most Super Bowl MVP awards, with three. But that mark was broken in 2016 when Tom Brady won his fourth in Super Bowl LI.
The Chiefs will certainly hope that Montana can channel some of that big game dominance into star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who could certainly use some against Brady today.
