[Topeka Capital-Journal] Before he could celebrate Kansas City’s dramatic victory over Oakland on Sunday, Carl Peterson had to remove slivers of glass from his face, hair and clothing.
When Larry Johnson went vaulting into the end zone on the final play, the Chiefs’ president and general manager punched the window in his private suite so hard it shattered.
Nobody was hurt except the Raiders, who went home with one of the most demoralizing 27-23 losses a team can endure.
“I’m fine,” Peterson said Monday. “Maybe a little embarrassed. But I didn’t cut myself.”
“I can’t remember a regular-season game where a decision was made at the end of game to go for a win and not a tie, especially at home,” Peterson said. “Obviously, my head coach made the right decision.”
“Through the years when we’d have a big play, I’d stand up and pound on the window a little bit,” he said. “I hit it with my Super Bowl ring and I think I pounded a little harder than I normally do. I shattered it.”
