By now most of the NFL knows the Kansas City Chiefs can run the football well.
Led by the tandem of Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles, the Chiefs are averaging a jaw-dropping 190.4 yards per game.
The Chiefs absolutely shredded the Buffalo Bills defense, rushing for 274 yards on 45 attempts. That is an average of 6.1 yards-per-carry.
Here is the breakdown of rushing yards between Charles and Jones:
Thomas Jones: 538 yards on 118 carries.
Jamaal Charles: 666 yards on 103 carries.
More after the jump.
Charles is averaging a ridiculous 6.5 yards-per-carry. If he continues his current pace he will finish the season with 1522 yards on only 235 carries!
Remarkably, Charles and Jones have only scored 5 touchdowns between them on the ground. This is likely because for some reason, the Chiefs tend to stop running when they get into the red zone.
What do you think Addicts? Will the Chiefs continue to raise their already sky high rushing average? Why do they have so many rushing yards but so few rushing TD’s?
