Chiefs relying on revitalized run game jump-starting offense

(TSX / STATS) -- KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Chiefs head coach threw down the gauntlet heading into the team's second preseason game at Cincinnati, charging his offensive line and running backs to improve on the paltry 31 yards on 14 carries posted in their preseason game a week ago.

"I told the guys we were going to run the ball a little more, and they took it as a challenge," Reid said. "They handled it and did well."

The Chiefs ran all over the Bengals Saturday night, piling up 228 yards on 33 carries, good for a brisk 6.9 yards per clip.
