Jamaal Charles Sets Chiefs Historical Marks In Saints Win

Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints was a great comeback game for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Jamaal Charles led the way. In fact, the night he had on the ground as he helped Kansas City come back from 21 points down in the second half were historically great. He not only came close to setting a record, but he broke a different one during his rampage over the Saints.

He came very close to breaking his own record from 2010 for most rushing yards in a game ever by a Chiefs player, but he did shatter the record for the longest rush ever by a Chief when he knocked out a 91 yard touchdown run.
