Jason O.Watson/Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Jamaal Charles gained 145 total yards and rushed for the go-ahead touchdown with 6:23 left in the game, leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a 26-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans Sunday.

The Chiefs are now 5-0 for the first time since 2003.

“I am speechless right now,” Charles said. “This team is very blessed to be 5-0 right now. Nobody expected us to be 5-0.”

That’s because last season the Chiefs only won two games. But this appears to be a different team. Kansas City forced three Tennessee turnovers, two of them Ryan Fitzpatrick interceptions.

Fitzpatrick was starting in place of the injured Jake Locker. He finished the game completing 21 of 41 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

The Titans (3-2) trailed 13-0 at halftime, but scored 17 unanswered points and took a 17-13 lead early in the fourth quarter. But a couple drives later quarterback Alex Smith led the Chiefs on a 10 play, 64 yard scoring drive that ended with Charles touchdown run.

The Chiefs will look to improve to 6-0 next Sunday when they host the Oakland Raiders.
