DENVER -- Jamaal Charles is having an incredible game.

He just had a sensational 56-yard touchdown run to give the Chiefs a 44-24 lead over Denver, which is seeing its playoff hopes die.

Charles broke the Chiefs' franchise single-game rushing record with the run and has 259 rushing yards. The previous high was 211 yards by Larry Johnson.

When Johnson was cut in November, it opened the door for Charles’ 1,000-plus yard season.
