Here are some observations based on the snap-count data from the Chiefs’ 23-13 win over the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 3. Numbers provided by the NFL. *Running back Jamaal Charles logged 95 percent or more of the offensive snaps for only the third time all season. He logged 99 percent of the snaps against Dallas in Week 2 and 95 percent of the snaps against Oakland in Week 6. He’s normally hovered around the 85-91 percent mark. *In a similar vein, running back Knile Davis played only one offensive snap against the Bills, the fewest he’s had since he logged one against Oakland in Week 6. It’s a significant dropoff, particularly after he played 20 total snaps in the two previous games and drew praise from coach Andy Reid. Interestingly enough, Davis did log his fourth special teams snap of the season and his first since he muffed a kickoff against Dallas in Week 2. Davis, who has a reputation for fumbling, made sure he didn’t repeat the error against the Bills, as he hauled in the kick and returned it 24 yards. Check out the way he looked the ball in, too (this absolutely slayed the guys on press row).
