The KCChiefs.com staff is a fan of the headline 'Charles in Charge' today. Two columns have used it so far. It's still early but I imagine we'll see more articles popping up throughout the day with similar headlines for the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 overtime victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This isn't the first time this headline has been used (we've used it a few times) and it's probably not the last time.
