KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jamaal Charles had touched the ball more than 1,500 times in his Kansas City Chiefs career, between the times he was given it in the backfield and the times he had hauled in a pass.
He had fumbled it just 24 times.
So when Andy Reid decided to hand off to him in the final seconds Thursday night, with the Chiefs and Broncos knotted 24-all, the coach figured his odds were better that the two-time All-Pro would break a long run than he would fumble for the second time in the game.
”I thought that was a good play,” Reid said afterward. ”Didn’t work out so good.”
