Jamaal Charles' 91-Yard TD Run Will Stick With Saints DC

One of the biggest plays in a game that featured plenty of big plays came when Jamaal Charles busted off a 91-yard touchdown run for the Kansas City in their upset of the New Orleans Saints. When Charles did that, you remembered how good that guy was and how he can keep the Chiefs in the game.

That run was the beginning of the Chiefs come back. They were down 24-6 before Charles run and came back to score 31 unanswered and win the game, 27-24. It's hard not to say that was the biggest play of the game, despite the Chiefs still being down double digits after it.

Saints defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo talked to the New Orleans media on Monday and said that run by Charles -- and the 40-yarder -- stick out for him.

"The only one that really sticks in my mind is the 91-yard run," Spags said. "He had another 40-yard run, there were two, that one and the one that came four or five plays later.

"Should that happen? No. Does it stick in my gut? Yes.

"I do believe that particular run game and in the way we approached it, there were going to be a four and a five and a six and a seven (yard gains). But, I don't think those when you look at the whole game, because I think we played well in the red zone, and because we came up with some big plays, I thought it would even itself out and help us win the football game.

"But when he snapped off the 91-yard touchdown run and we didn't play as well in the fourth quarter as the first three, it certainly caused some of the issues in us losing a football game."

I'd say it caused an issue or two.
