Jamaal Charles: Will Kansas City’s Star Find Room To Run Against Ravens?

January 7, 2011   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs has been one of the NFL's most explosive running backs this season. 
The third-year rusher out of Texas nearly broke 2,000 total yards this season, totalling 1,935 yards and 8 touchdowns. He averaged 6.4 yards per carry, and was the primary playmaker for the Chiefs' run-oriented offense. 
However, Charles has never played in the postseason, and his playoff debut pits him against a Ravens defense that ranks fifth in the NFL in rushing yards allowed, and first in rushing touchdowns allowed. Charles isn't immune to tough days, evidenced by his lackluster showing against the Chargers in Week 13, and he hasn't faced a unit as formidable as Baltimore's. 
With a second back in Kansas City, don't be surprised to see Charles take a seat if he can't find room to work. But Baltimore isn't impenetrable, and Charles is a fantastic, versatile back who should find enough room to give the Ravens fits in this one.
