Haley said the Chiefs had 92 yards after the catch or after contact at San Diego, but 120 against Minnesota. And last week, at Indianapolis, the Chiefs picked up 250 combined yards after contact and catch.
“The run-after-the-catch has been a difference-maker for us,” Haley said. “Jackie Battle averaged close to 5 yards after contact on Sunday, which is out of this world for a running back.”
Bowe averaged 10 yards after the catch on his seven receptions, compared to zero yards after five catches at San Diego.
“That’s 70 yards,” Haley said. “Yards equal points, and there’s never been more evidence than last Sunday. … It changes the game dramatically, if all other things are equal.
