It's too bad Jamaal Charles is playing on the Kansas City Chiefs. One of the most electric players in the NFL is playing in obscurity.
Charles officially became the NFL's all-time leader in rushing average on Sunday by getting the two carries he needed to qualify, and he added to his career average of about 5.7 yards per carry. His 86-yard touchdown against the Colts was one of the best plays of Kansas City's terrible season.
Charles took a run wide left, got behind some blocks, and got into the open field. Nobody was catching him from behind, and receiver Jon Baldwin did a nice job running interference downfield. Charles scored, and then the camera panned out to show huge blocks of empty seats in the Arrowhead Stadium end zone, which sums up how Charles is wasting away.
Kansas City has a lot of work to do this offseason to build its offense, but having a dynamic running back like Charles as a centerpiece is not the worst place to start.
