Charles Returns To Help Chiefs Destroy Patriots

Charles Returns To Help Chiefs Destroy Patriots

Jason O. Wastson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Jamaal Charles' ankle seemed just fine Monday night. Charles, who missed the Kansas City Chiefs game last week against the Miami Dolphins with a high ankle sprain, caught two touchdowns and ran for another to help the Chiefs rout the New England Patriots 41-14.

"Coach said he was going to look for me, and see how it feels during the game," Charles said, "and I guess I started feeling like myself. He didn't want to take me out."

Charles finished the game with 18 rushes for 92 yards, and teammate Knile Davis had 16 carries for 107 yards in the win.

The Chiefs (2-2) never allowed the Patriots (2-2) to get comfortable on offense, constantly pressuring Tom Brady, who had three turnovers -- two interceptions and one fumble -- in the loss.

"It was just a bad performance by everybody," Brady said. "We need to make sure we never have this feeling again. We've got to figure out what we have to do better."

Alex Smith completed 20 of 26 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns for Kansas City, whose fans set the record for loudest outdoor sports venue in the first half, according to the Guinness World Records. The Chiefs' fans hit a noise level of 142.2 decibels, which tops the previous record of 137.6 set by the Seattle Seahawks' fans last season.

Chiefs Sign Smith to Four-Year Deal

Chiefs Sign Smith to Four-Year Deal

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have apparently found their quarterback of the future, signing Alex Smith to a four-year contract extension. Multiple media reports say the deal is worth approximately $68 million.

Smith was acquired last season in a trade with San Francisco for a third round pick in 2013 and 2014. The extension will keep the signal caller in Kansas City through the 2018 season as he still has one year remaining on his current contract. 

"It was a priority of ours to get this deal done and keep Alex in a Chiefs uniform long-term," Kansas City general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. "Alex is a proven leader on and off the field. He is a special individual with a lot of ability, and we are fortunate to have him here."

The 30-year-old posted one of the best seasons of his career last season, throwing for 23 touchdowns and a career-high 3,313 passing yards. In his first season with the Chiefs, Smith helped the team to an 11-4 record and a spot in the playoffs.
