THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS (Week 2)
BEAST DOME NATION.
What’s Yellow and White with Red All over. A Jamaal Charles on Thursday Night Football against the hard hitting Denver Broncos Defense at Arrowhead.
Jamaal Charles owners can breathe a sigh of relief after a gift Touchdown thanks to a Brian Hoyer Fumble inside of his own 10 Yard Line. With 12 of Jamaal’s 16 carries going for 5 Yards or Less against the Texans in Week 1, which included a first half of 7 Carries for 8 Yards. Things do not get any easier as he goes up against the Two Fast Two Furious Broncos D, Directed by Wade Phillips in what will be a defensive AFC West showdown.
As George W. Bush once said.
Fool me once. Shame on you. If you fool me, you can’t get fooled again.
JAMAAL CHARLES BUST OF THE WEEK (2)
Last season in Week 2 Jamaal Charles was my BUST OF THE WEEK and he ended up getting injured against the Broncos early on after a hard hit from TJ Ward. TJ Ward is back for this matchup and while I doubt he injures him again, there will be plenty of Broncos players that will look to rip the head off of Jamaal Charles. Jamaal will have a lot of trouble getting the edges as Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware will make sure all the running lanes are clogged up and the itsy bitsy Jamaal will get swallowed up by the Denver Defense. If you think the one man show of Jeremy Maclin will be able to get open against Aqib Talib, that won’t happen, just ask Steve Smith Sr. If you think Travis Kelce who got all of his stats in 1 Quarter will be able to breakout against a Denver Defense that plays 10mph faster than the Texans, think again.
With the Chiefs offense going nowhere this week besides to the sidelines to watch punt after punt, and Denver owning Time Of possession dinking and dunking all over the field in the Peyton Manning statement game. Jamaal Charles, you are my BUST OF THE WEEK.
