Chiefs' Jamaal Charles named AFC special teams player of the week

Jamaal Charles, whose 97-yard return of the opening kickoff helped propel Kansas City to a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, was named AFC special teams player of the week Wednesday.

The play tied as fifth-longest kickoff return in Chiefs history. It gave Kansas City the lead just 16 seconds into what would become an improbable 27-24 overtime victory over the defending Super Bowl champions.

Charles also scored on a 2-yard pass from Matt Cassel in the second half.
