The Chiefs are leading the Raiders, 35-17, at halftime, and Charles wasted no time making his mark on this game. On Kansas City's first play from scrimmage, Charles took a screen pass 49 yards for a touchdown. He continued to shred the Raiders defense from there, scoring touchdowns on three of the next four drives, totaling four trips to the end zone in the first half. Charles become the fourth player in the history of the NFL to have four touchdowns in the first half, joining Randy Moss, Priest Holmes, and Shaun Alexander, according to FOX Sports.
The statistics look more like those of a receiver than a running back. He caught six passes for 116 yards and three touchdowns while he only had six carries for 16 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Charles wasn't the only play doing damage for the Chiefs, though. Safety Eric Berry intercepted Raiders quarterback Matt McGloin twice, returning one for a touchdown. Berry had a total of 98 return yards on the two interceptions, which was more yardage than any Raider receiver had in the first half. On the bright side for Oakland, Rashad Jennings has two rushing touchdowns thus far.
Needless to say, the Chiefs are cruising in Oakland.
