Charles in Charge is a Popular Chiefs Headline Today

The 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. 

The Chiefs did do a few things yesterday that don't come along as often as the Charles in Charge headline. Here are a few miscellaneous notes on the Chiefs OT victory, many of them courtesy of Pete Moris at

  • First kick return for a TD since....10/2/05
  • First opening kickoff return since...12/19/04

  • First back to back wins since...10/14/07 and 10/21/07
  • First 94+ INT return since....9/6/92
