The Kansas City Chiefs go through the first quarter of the season sitting comfortable in first place with legitimate playoff hopes. As a whole I think folks are feeling good about the team.

One of the reasons they're doing well is the play of RB Jamaal Charles, my pick as the Chiefs offensive MVP through the first quarter of the season.

Charles is almost a MVP by default on the Chiefs offense. I don't think you can pick just one offensive lineman, he's out played Thomas Jones and no receiver comes close to the impact he's had.

Charles got things started off nicely in Week 1 with a big 56-yard touchdown run. He's racked up a lot of yards since then (325) and is on place for 1,300 yards rushing this year.

And he's doing it all at 6.5 yards per carry which would be an incredible number to end the season at.

He's also the Chiefs third leading receiver with eight receptions for 106 yards.

Downsides would include Charles' fumble last week against the Colts, the Chiefs only fumble of the season.

But ultimately he's about the only person you could pick as the offensive MVP.

Agree/disagree on Charles as the first quarter offensive MVP?
