The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to tie the Denver Broncos for first place in the AFC West after they were beaten by the Chargers on Thursday Night.

The Chiefs are off to a great start against the Oakland Raiders as they’re up 21-3 in just the first quarter. Kansas City added some key pieces to not only their roster but their coaching staff that has turned this team around and sent them in the right direction.

Things are looking great for this Chiefs team and their fans as they’re preparing themselves for a trip to the post-season. Running back Jamaal Charles has been a huge part of this team ever since he was drafted out of the University of Texas.

Charles already has two touchdown receptions today from starting quarterback Alex Smith. Smith and Charles connected on a 49 yard screen that went for a touchdown then connected again on a 39 yard screen that went for another touchdown.

Jamaal already has 88 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Alex Smith is currently four of five for 118 yards.
