Ball rushed for 117 yards...however he got 73 of them on two runs. Ball still averaged 4.0 on his other 11 carries (44 yards)....but Chiefs played the run relatively well last week save for those two plays.
Knowshon while constantly being hit in the backfield was a beast in the passing game catching 4 passes for 72 yards (34 longest) and a TD.
