For the uninitiated, cornhole is a yard game with two wooden ramps, each with a hole cut out, and teams of two players each attempt to toss beanbags through the hole, to land on the ramp or knock the opposition’s bags off the ramp. My Ohio-bred brother-in-law introduced my family to the game a couple of years ago. Although I admit to lacking coordination, it’s not as easy it sounds or looks. But it’s pretty freaking entertaining. Especially with beer.
“We’ve been trying to figure out ways to create togetherness,” Haley told Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star. “It’s been great. It’s a way to keep guys hanging around and interacting with each other, and winning helps out.”
Jackie Battle, Chiefs (12 percent): Thomas Jones certainly doesn’t appear fit to be the every-down back in Kansas City, and Battle came through in his first opportunity Sunday, rushing 19 times for 119 yards and catching two passes for 21 yards. (Jones had 10 carries for 55 yards against a Colts rushing defense that came into the game pretty solid this year, actually.) Kansas City won’t run the ball every week as much as it did on Sunday, but Battle’s worth a flier if you’re in need of a running back. (Or, if you’re the anonymous letter-writer who told Chiefs coach Todd Haley to use Battle.)
