Everyone Wonders: What Happened To Jamaal Charles?

Now that we've had our meltdowns about the KC Chiefs loss to the Buffalo Bills it's time to start figuring out why the Chiefs lost to the Bills.

Ooh! Ooh! I know the answer to this one!

Besides the defensive ineptitude, the Chiefs lost to the Bills because Jamaal Charles played only 28 percent of the snaps. 21 snaps! He saw six carries for three yards. No, not a good number but Charles is still one of your playmakers. You need him on the field.

Shaun Draughn played more than Jamaal Charles. Peyton Hillis played 13 more snaps than him. Even last week's mystery man Jonathan Baldwin nearly doubled him up in snaps.

This is all so confusing.

Is he hurt? Does he suck all of a sudden? Was this part of the game plan?

Update: We have an answer.

End update

Charles' last carry came midway through the third quarter. The Chiefs were only down 21-0 at that point so the game wasn't totally over (well, yeah it was but whatever).

Everyone's wondering the same thing and we don't have any answers.
