Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll defended the Chiefs’ use of running back Jamaal Charles in last week’s loss to Oakland. Charles was given the ball just eight times between rushes and pass receptions in the 26-16 loss to the Raiders.
“Jamaal is a good player . . . and give Oakland credit,’’ Daboll said. “They did a nice job of stopping the run. We tried to move it some other ways. Every week is a new week.
“You go as the game develops. You try to run or pass based some on what you think you can do and some on what they’re doing. If they’re doing a good job of stopping the run over and over, we’re going to try and move the ball in another fashion. If we’re running the ball well, we’ll continue to run the ball.’’
